Pneumonia, Steroid Psychosis, & Choosing Health First

A couple weeks ago I registered to attend Thrive: Make Money Matter in Las Vegas scheduled for this weekend. I was SO excited not only for the incredible speaker lineup, but also to support Wes Chapman and A Human Project, and last but certainly not least, celebrate his gorgeous fiance, my friend Jodie, as her birthday also falls today. (Happy Birthday Jodie! Check out her amazing clean eatin’ blog here!)

Alas, around the weekend of September 20, I started to get sick. I remember sneezing – you know that sick sneeze you get where you just know more sickness is upon you? Continue reading “Pneumonia, Steroid Psychosis, & Choosing Health First”

Peace, Love, and Other Drugs


I’m at the Scripps Mercy Hospital Infusion Clinic and Cancer Center today, getting my bi-monthly dose of Remicade. It typically takes about four hours from start to finish. It’s kind of my peaceful time. I love it because it helps me feel better (sometimes), the nurses that work there are like my second family now (I heart them), and it gives me a chance to really sit back and think.

It still blows my mind that in order to be even somewhat functional, I need to sit in a chair for four hours while medication gets infused into my bloodstream. Continue reading “Peace, Love, and Other Drugs”

Did You Show Up For Life Today?


The most important thing you can do in your life is simply to SHOW UP for it.

I originally posted this on Medium, and it’s been much more popular than I ever expected, so I wanted to share it with this community, as well.

Most people show up for work more than they show up for life.

connect this..

You’re publicly welcome. Welcome to the world of social media and the online community. It’s like one big party, and you’re hosting this one. Just the beginning…

We Each Have A Gift


Want to publicly thank Monet Diamante, for setting up this blog and my twitter account. Linking it all to FBook, etc. Have quickly realized through her how much connecting means through “social media”. How much more of an opportunity we have to reach out to even more people than I can, just physically.

We can learn from everyone.

Connect with everyone.

Everyone has an opportunity for you.

Everyone has a gift for you if you listen.

If you look. If you’re open.

7 billion gifts and opportunities walking around..

That’s a lot connecting to be had.

The other night I hosted my first web chat! It was actually so much fun for me. If you want to know what Twitter is all about and how to use it to:

  • connect with people
  • add value to your business
  • find potential clients/customers
  • keep in touch with current customers
  • develop a PLN: Personal Learning Network

…see the video linked below, Learning the Twitterverse – Twitter for Beginners! I know it can be overwhelming but I promise I make it simple. If you want to know when I do another, or you want one-on-one or coaching in a group setting, please send me a message via the comment box below!

Learning the Twitterverse – Twitter for Beginners – Hosted by Monet Diamante

Topics discussed: my passion, building your brand, Twitter acronyms, the unwritten rules, the real rules, how to engage with people, using hashtags the right way, using lists, why I love Instagram, some laughs, a couple of curse words, a little inspiration, & a lot of value.  So fun. #lovemylife 😉

“Pain is a rela…

“Pain is a relatively objective, physical phenomenon; suffering is our psychological resistance to what happens. Events may create physical pain, but they do not in themselves create suffering. Resistance creates suffering. Stress happens when your mind resists what is… The only problem in your life is your mind’s resistance to life as it unfolds.” Dan Millman
