Sleep & Help? Strange Concept but Here's My Thoughts!

What helps with sleep? #Obviously not how bright your #phone or computer is right now! Suggestions are encouraged in the comment box below! Here are some ways that I'm accomplishing better sleep habits: 1) #mentalhealth #wellness that encompasses a full body approach! 2) #meditation in many different forms! 3) #mindfulness and asking appropriate health-related questions. 4) unplugging appropriately!

Conquering Anxiety With Love <3

Tonight has been filled with so many soft and sweet--yet difficult to ignore--lustful notions. I am now convinced that a #lovewins mentality can conquer anything. But that's such a hard pill to swallow. It's an overzealous supplement to most. And continually overwhelming to myself.I've never been a firm believer in faith. But everything around me begins to shine.  Sitting back, I begin to relax after lulling my gorgeous wife to sleep with a beautiful passage by our hometown hero, “Mitch Albom.”And although everyone is asleep. You can tell that "family lives here." You may think I'm crazy by telling you only...

Comfort Recovery & Ending the Stigma!

"empower to be empowered" When I think of that quote another really impactful motto comes to mind. A quote that really uplifts me to live a faithful and prosperous life is to remember why I wake up. When I wake up I need to start my day with this question: "who can I help smile today?" This photo below really encompasses a great vision of joy, togetherness, empowerment, and smiles while ending...

A Nurse in Recovery: Tiffany's Clarity

It had been a couple years since my graduation from nursing school when I heard a rumor at work that some of the staff had been drinking on the job. My good friend, also a nurse in the department, had called me in a panic the next day and said that she overheard there was potluck and someone said the cider was spiked. Too shocked and nervous to tell anyone, she did not go to the supervisors that night. I felt like it couldn’t be true. Deeply ingrained in my soul was the belief that nurses were essentially perfect.
