Take a look inward, it'll do you good - by Noelle Peterson Feb 04, 2022

Have you ever thought of evaluating who you are? Why would we do that? What difference does it make?

Well looking at who we are and how we are doing in different areas of our life can give us perspective. It can show us where we can improve, what we can work on.

Oh that's a four letter word. We...

We had bought snacks for the trip, but we were so busy we didn't even open some of them.

Robert and I have been adventuring for over 30 years. As we have grown and adjusted to life's situations, we have maintained an element of fun and playfulness in our marriage and family. We attribute this to one of the reasons we are happily married.

Having a Positive Outlook Even in Grave Situations by Noelle Peterson Jan 14, 2022

I spent 13 days in the hospital last year, half of that was in ICU. Before that, I considered myself healthy, I didn't take any medications and wasn't under a doctor's care for anything. This was a shock to me and my family for sure. 

I remember lying in the ER bed as the surgeon explained I...

Stand Up, Take Action, Don't be Afraid by Noelle Peterson Jan 06, 2022

We all have an imposter monster. That voice in your head that tells you you can't, no way that will work, who would listen to you, you don't know anything. The little devil on your shoulder. The lies that hold you back from taking the step you know you need to take.

I do have a story and so do you. Dec 30, 2021

I always thought I didn't have much of a story. I grew up in a middle-class white household. Nothing special or different about me or my life, or so I thought.

I didn't have a major illness or suffer some catastrophe. My parents worked 2-4 jobs and I had 3 siblings. We were a normal middle-class...

We start this world with relationships. We have parents, siblings, and extended family and then we make friends as we grow up. Sometimes these all seem to come easy and then we become teenagers and things can get complicated. No one spends the time to teach us relationship skills. We learn about...

What is discipline? Dec 14, 2021

Often times what comes to mind is reprimanding or correcting a child. 

But today we want to talk about being disciplined. As adults we must make daily decisions to do the right thing, to go to work, to clean the house, to get up in the morning. We become disciplined in our thoughts and...

Integrity With Yourself Sep 20, 2021

What happens when you are out of integrity with yourself? 

For most of my life it was easy to keep my word to others, to show up on time, to do what I said I would do. The area where I struggled, even after I started coaching, was being in harmony with myself. I would commit to launch my...

What We Measure Matters  Aug 19, 2021

What we measure matters, or does it? Typically, I would tell you that what we measure matters, but over and over again I see examples of measuring and not making a difference. The easiest example is stepping on the scale each morning and yet not changing any behavior related to weight.
