I just had to write a quick note to say how continually grateful and impressed I am by those here at WA. It's an awesome community and I've loved the conversations I've been able to have with so many of you. I think it's easy to forget the impact our words can have on others. That's something I was reminded of in a not so pleasant way this week, and it has reminded me of how grateful I am for the positive examples. :) If you want to read more on my thoughts about this, check out my latest-http:

It's about 100°F here in AZ today, and I just had to share how nice it is being able to get some work done poolside. I feel like for so much of my career, I've been trapped in my office through all of the beautiful weather, and now I can enjoy the outdoors pretty much whenever I want, whether I'm working or not. Very liberating. :)

I was thinking a lot today about my tendency to always try to rush things and chasing after that feeling of accomplishment in finishing something. When I get into that mindset, I feel like there is so much that I miss, and I think it's so important to slow down and take life as it comes...taking the good with the bad. I started thinking about how it's like putting together a jigsaw puzzle and how the hardest ones are usually the ones that bring the most satisfaction. Anywho, I ended up writing

I decided to go for the yearly membership today. What I've learned in the past 3 weeks already has been incredible, and I can only imagine what I'll continue to learn in the next year! I only wish the 3 degrees I've already earned were as affordable! :)

I don't know how many scenarios I've faced in life where I've used that quote from Field of Dreams, "If you build it, they will come". However, today I experienced another one of those scenarios. I've been pondering on some different ideas about service for a new post on my site, and today, a perfect opportunity presented itself!

The other day I was thinking about how most of my best ideas come when I'm falling asleep, and while I do love my sleep, I have to say that it is really nice to be able to jump on my site and write a post when the idea hits instead of having to wait until I'm back at the office or something like that as I have in the past. It also helps in the "idea loss prevention" sector...you know all of those great thoughts you have as you are falling asleep and can never remember in the morning? Anyway, ju

Well, I'm about two weeks into using WA now, and I can say I have already learned a ton. Several months ago, I had to stop working full-time as a counselor due to some medical issues, and so I am excited to be able to continue forward in helping others via the web on my first website onestepclosertohappy.com. It's been great to share small snippets so far of both my personal and professional life, and I hope it's something that will benefit others. I feel like going through this training so f
