Happy New Year! By now, the hustle and bustle and stress of the holiday season is behind us. You have probably spent weeks shopping, gift-giving, and visiting with friends and family – mostly time spent focusing on everyone else. Now, with the New Year upon us, it is time to focus on you. As we th...

It’s the most important thing


My kind of company🐐🐮🐴




As much as I love the holiday season, it does cause change in routine, which definitely impacts moods!

I have had to lean heavily into co-regulation, and found this graphic very helpful!

Sending everyone calm and peace!

Never underestimate the power of Forgiveness





Shower. Not a bath, a shower. Use water as hot or cold as you like. You don’t even need to wash. Just get in under the water and let it run over you for a while. Sit on the floor if you gotta.

Moisturize everything. Use whatever lotion you like.

Put on clean, comfortable clothes.

Drink cold water. Use ice. If you want, add some mint or lemon for an extra boost.

Clean something. Doesn’t have to be anything big. Organize one drawer of a desk. Wash five dirty dishes. Do a load of laundry. Scrub the bathroom sink.

Blast music. Listen to something upbeat and dancy and loud, something that’s got lots of energy. Sing to it, dance to it, even if you suck at both.

Make food. Don’t just grab a granola bar to munch. Take the time and make food. Even if it’s ramen. Add something special to it, like a soft boiled egg or some veggies. Prepare food, it tastes way better, and you’ll feel like you accomplished something.

Make something. Write a short story or a poem, draw a picture, color a picture, fold origami, crochet or knit, sculpt something out of clay, anything artistic. Even if you don’t think you’re good at it. Create.

Go outside. Take a walk. Sit in the grass. Look at the clouds. Smell flowers. Put your hands in the dirt and feel the soil against your skin.

Call someone. Call a loved one, a friend, a family member, call a chat service if you have no one else to call. Talk to a stranger on the street. Have a conversation and listen to someone’s voice. If you can’t bring yourself to call, text or email or whatever, just have some social interaction with another person. Even if you don’t say much, listen to them. It helps. (You can always call/text/message me!)

May seem small or silly to some, but this list keeps people alive.

* At your absolute best you won’t be good enough for the wrong people. But at your worst, you’ll still be worth it to the right ones. Remember that. Keep holding on.

* In case nobody has told you today I Love you and you are worth your weight and then some in gold, so be kind to yourself and most of all keep pushing on!!!!

Find something to be grateful for!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day. Be safe. thinking of the Dwayne Frye family today.


Look at the smile on Jaylon Ferguson’s face. Sadly he made a mistake and ingested fentanyl mixed in co***ne. His bright future with the Baltimore Ravens ended abruptly just like thousands of beautiful young Americans who had promising careers ahead of them.

Kids are supposed to learn from mistakes NOT DIE FROM THEM. We all made mistakes growing up but were able to learn valuable lessons. In the cases involving poisonous fentanyl, there isn’t a second chance.

Can we get at least 1 leader/role model from professional sports to please step up and support the devastated families all over the USA and help push CRITICAL INFORMATION about this deadly crisis we are facing to save other lives?


Wishing my friend Ryan Lingle a happy birthday. Ryan overdosed two years ago. If you are struggling with drugs or alcohol, now is the time to get help.


Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has checked himself into rehab after a drug relapse.

Tyler, 74, and Aerosmith made the following joint statement:

"As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years. After foot surgery to prepare for the stage and the necessity of pain management during the process, he has recently relapsed and voluntarily entered a treatment program to concentrate on his health and recovery."

It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from, whether you’ve had clean time in the past or just starting your journey for the first time. The only thing that matters is we keep trying and never give up. So much respect for Steven Tyler for this. If a man with this much clout and fame can humble himself again, there’s no excuse for anyone.
