Why let fear have all the fun?

How often does fear hold you back? More often than you may think. Fear is that little voice that tells you not to do something because something may go wrong.

How far can you move if you’re paralized by fear? Not very. Sometimes well maybe most times, moving beyond your comfort zone (or ahem, the box) is where Continue reading Why let fear have all the fun?


What is the purpose of life?

Today I answer the age old question of what is the purpose of life. Well, what is it? I think we all know the answer but it’s so obvious that we don’t even notice it.

To learn. We spend our entire life learning. And I’m not talking that joke of an experience called “school” I’m talking about what you do everyday. Continue reading What is the purpose of life?

You Don’t Know What You’ve Got Until It’s Gone

You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Words we hear often but, do we ever stop and think about them? How often do you take your life for granted? Probably everyday.

If you’re like most people you probably spend more time complaining about things that are wrong instead of being grateful for the things that are right. Why do we do this? Continue reading You Don’t Know What You’ve Got Until It’s Gone

Put crap in get crap out

I learned something today that may seem obvious to a lot of people and yet to others be something we may have never given two thoughts about. My friends I’m talking about food.

How many times do we go to the bathroom after a long day of eating crap food and wish to god we wouldn’t have had that last triple cheeseburger or all that cheese sauce on our nachos?  How many of us have had food poisoning before from a late night terrible food choice and never wanted to eat again?  But yet how many more of us just eat junk food everyday and it doesn’t really give us a problem?  Or so we think. Continue reading Put crap in get crap out


Do you ever question things? Not just the big things but even the small. I’m talking questioning some things you do everyday.

Like why do I get up at this time every morning? Is it because I have to, is it because I want to, is there a better time to make my day better? Why do I eat this for breakfast? Is it convenient, is it healthy, do I just not eat breakfast at all?

Questioning your choices everyday could lead to a better day. Maybe you find out that doing the exact same thing everyday makes you miserable. Or maybe you will find some time in your day you didn’t know you had. Or maybe you will just find new ways to make yourself happy.

Have you questioned anything today? Has it caused you to make a change?

Health can be Simple

The last few months, I have not been using shampoo and conditioner and for that matter, i haven’t been using deodorant either.  I’m sure that got a few eye brow raises.  You’re probably thinking, oh god she’s got to stink and look so greasy!

You know what, I don’t.  I haven’t smelled bad at all.  I’ve been using coconut oil as “deodorant.”  I got tired of rubbing aluminum under my armpits along with countless chemicals.  Have you ever read the ingredients list on your deodorant?  Wow! Continue reading Health can be Simple

See what you want to see

Have you ever noticed how some people are just miserable all the time no matter the good things that can happen? You know the ones I’m talking about that could win the lottery and still be mad because they didn’t get more money.

How often do we do this to ourselves? Wake up in the morning and you’re mad because you didn’t get ten more minutes of sleep instead of being happy you did sleep. Or, something didn’t quite go right at work so you let it ruin your day.

What if you just stop thinking negatively about things? What if you woke up ten minutes early and used that ten minutes to plan your outfit, make coffee, or actually east breakfast? Continue reading See what you want to see

My Blog

So I have decided that it’s time that I actually do something with my blog and make some kind of commitment to it. I need to actually post, and share things I’ve learned and knowledge, and learn more.

So I have made a commitment that I will write a blog post everyday. Now don’t worry they won’t all suck, because I won’t necessarily post them all. My goal is to write a post every day and do my best to post the ones that don’t suck. You can also check out some of my ramblings through my facebook page at facebook.com/movingbeyondthebox 🙂
