High quality skincare makes a fantastic gift, especially for those in your life who wouldn’t splurge on themselves.  I have used this specific formula from Estee Lauder, and can say it WORKS! It goes on nice, and in the morning my skin is hydrated and refreshed. 

$100-200 Gift giving idea: concert

Going to a concert, especially a symphony, or theater show makes for a wonderful and memorable gift. Personally, I absolutely love going to anything from seeing a band play, to seeing an amazing theater show, and especially going to see the symphony.  Anything involving music and an evening out makes for a great gift! Complete the show with a nice dinner, and it is a night made in heaven!

Lessons from fruit

Lessons from fruit

There is a good chance you’ve heard this lesson previously, but it is one I come back to often and wanted to be sure to share.

The late, Dr. Wayne Dyer is known for asking the question, “When an orange is squeezed, what comes out?” The answer, of course being, “Orange juice (and probably a few seeds for future oranges).” That’s right, apple juice doesn’t come out, celery juice doesn’t come out. Only orange juice comes out.

The question is meant to illustrate, that what is inside, is what comes out. Wayne goes on to ask, “If you were squeezed, what would come out?”

Please know, this isn’t meant to be taken literally… but it is food for thought. Just think, when is the last time you felt stressed or frustrated, in other words, squeezed? What came out…? Maybe a big sigh and a grimace? Or maybe a special gesture and a few curse words? Perhaps, you used the energy and went for a run? Maybe you redirected the energy and let off some steam by focusing on a hobby?

Either way, what is inside is always what comes out. If we are filled with anger, it will eventually come out. If we are filled with joy, it will be shown on the outside. Filling our minds and hearts with a delightful, light-hearted attitude will allow that to be expressed. Being mindful of what we are watching, listening to, and believing is so important to ensure we aren’t allowing ourselves to be filled with unhelpful thoughts.

The next time you pour yourself a glass of water, think to yourself – if I was quenching my emotional state, which feeling would I choose to take in.

Life lessons from baseball

Life lessons from baseball

Welcome back to my blog everyone, and happy autumn season here in the northern hemisphere. As baseball season is transitioning from its regular season into playoffs; I thought this was the perfect time to highlight how great of a sport it is! And of course, you all know how much I love books and learning from other people’s experiences! With that said, lets get into today’s post with some background on why I love sports, specifically baseball.


My love for baseball

Personally, I only got into baseball as a teenager, and then moreso when I was an adult who moved from Philadelphia down south. Of course, being raised near Philly, naturally I am a Phillies fan. I quickly learned about the differences in leagues, and how they roll up to determine which team plays which. Not to mention, I’ve had the opportunity to go to MANY stadiums around the United States. Including a few trips to Wrigley Field, in Chicago; a trip or two to Braves Stadium in Atlanta; a single trip to Padres Stadium in San Diego and countless times to Fenwey in Boston, for tours, visits and yes even the game where a fist fight broke out between the Yankees and the Red Sox.

My love for baseball started as a way to connect with Philadelphia while I was away, but quickly grew into a more mature understanding of the sport, and an appreciation for the strategy involved.


Book Inspiration!

This deeper understanding of baseball, watching the communication between the pitcher and the catcher. The look in the eyes of the batters, and the choices the runners have to make, led me to read the book, “Just tell me I can’t: How Jamie Moyer Defied the Radar Gun and Defeated Time”. Yes, this book is about baseball, but even more, it is about life.

Jamie Moyer was a pitcher for the Phillies and the Seattle Mariners. He is known as the oldest pitcher who stayed in the game, and also had a unique style. If you are at all interested in sports, or personal motivation, or both! (sports and personal motivation); I highly recommend you at least watch my video summarizing the book. Or pick up a copy! Either way, please tell me what you think about baseball in the comments down below 🙂
