Next level Thriving!

Body, Goal Setting, Motivation, Nutrition, Spirit

It’s DAY 8…I have just as much energy today as yesterday and all the other days since I began the Thrive products.  Simply stated – I am THRIVING!!!

My students in the classroom are pointing out how much energy and fun I am now (more than ever).  I have always been an upbeat teacher.  But NOW! It’s on a higher level.  I believe my energy is exceeding theirs.  In fact, they are asking me for my Derma Fusion  Technology (DFT) patches, aka wearable nutrition.  It saddens me that I can’t share it with them, but it’s again school policy.  I totally respect that policy.

Last night, I attended a local Le-Vel conference.  I met some amazing people.  Like myself, they are full of energy and believe very strongly in promoting the Le-Vel brand.  It’s not only that for me.  It’s deeper!

Thriving Day 7

Body, Finances, Goal Setting, Motivation, Nutrition

I believe that “My One Word” lead me to the Le-Vel business and The Thrive Experience.

Today is DAY 7 – thriving! 

I’m feeling beyond fantastic. (I am not making any claims of being cured of a disease or medicated).  I simply FEEL wonderful!  I had no idea that I could feel this way after years of having swollen extremities and feeling overall sickly.

I have suffered from edema for many years.  This is due to inflammation in my body.  I am not sure of the cause.  I vaguely remember that it started in my 20s after I accidentally ran into a barrel cactus with sandals on.   The pain was unbearable at the time.  I could not walk or wear shoes for a few days.  Finally a long thorn emerged from one of my toes.  I pulled it out and the pain subsided.

Today, it occurred to me that I had not been swelling in the last week.  My inflammation has subsided.  I can tell because my body feels lighter and better overall.   I’m not making any claims that the Thrive products are healing me from a disease or anything like that – I must make that clear.  However, I have to keep it real and share how good I feel! 

Yes, I have tried other similar nutritional products represented by people I know and love.   I can, without a doubt, tell you that I never had the SUCCESS in such a short period of time as I have with The Thrive Experience.

It is not my intention to be a first round NFL draft pick!  The “NO FRIENDS/FAMILY LEFT” team is not one I want to be on.

However, it would be horrible if I did not share what I have with others.   Before I was ever introduced to The Le-Vel Company, it was my passion motivate and inspire other to thrive.  I’m in a better position now more than ever to represent something that is life-changing.   To see people improve and flourish in all the life areas they desire really energizes me!



Goal Setting, Motivation

I have to check myself often when it comes to excuses.

WHY am I making excuses?

Is it fear?

If so, of what?

Failure or success?

If failure serves to make me stronger, why would I fear it?

If success gets me closer to my purpose, why would I fear it?

If this doesn’t make sense, why make excuses?

What excuses do you make?







My One Word

Education, Goal Setting, Motivation

For years, I desired to make a difference in the lives of others on a grand scale.  There was always something nagging at me that I needed to achieve.  Yesterday afternoon I was on a telephone call with my brothers.  I love and respect them immensely.  With a lot of excitement in my voice, I shared my new position as  brand promoter for The Le-Vel Company.  I shared all about how wonderful and full of energy I felt on day 2.  I declared to my brothers that finally I will achieve all I set out to in life.

In this conversation, my brothers reminded me of all that I have already accomplished and why they love and admire me.  They also reminded me of the lives I touch daily as a teacher.  This conversation warmed my heart in so many ways.  It confirmed that I have been on the right path all along.  None of my experiences (good or bad) have been a waste.  I have been blessed going and coming – my entire life!

At this point, all I want to do is pursue my passion of inspiring others to create the personal and financial success they desire and deserve.  There is so much potential within us; yet this world and all that is currently happening around us tends to distract us from our purpose.

What’s inside you that you want to do, but you haven’t?  Is there a goal? Something you love so much that you would skip meals and lose sleep to make it happen.  What is stopping you?  It has taken me years to settle in to my journey of pain, passion, and purpose.

Finally, I read the self-awareness book , “Your One Word“, written by Evan Carmichael.  This book has been life-changing for me!  It helped me to realize that my one word is THRIVE.  This means to prosper; be fortunate or successful.  A secondary meaning is to grow or develop vigorously; flourish.

I AM passionate about the notion of people thriving!

I’m back and thriving – mind, body, and spirit!

My blogging was on hold for a while.  I planned to start in January, but wasn’t ready.  I finished my teaching internship; which meant I could focus solely on my students and being the best 3rd year middle school teacher I could be.

That new year’s resolution of improving my health by exercising and eating better was soon thwarted by the stress of moving to a new residence.  An excuse, of course.  The bottom line is – I have a food addiction.  It doesn’t take much to kick me off the wagon!

I start with the best of intentions and most often end up failing.  It doesn’t matter how intelligent you are; how much money you have; nor where you live – addiction makes you vulnerable.

You become the master of making excuses and you learn how to manipulate everyone around you to get what you want.  I love FOOD. I crave sugar more than anything.

A few days ago, I decided to hold myself accountable on every level – mind, body, and spirit.  I have coached countless others for many years to overcome obstacles both personally and professionally – now, I must do it for myself.


I am beginning a new lifestyle and I plan to share it with you daily.  Every step of the way, I will be transparent.  I refuse to hide behind the excess weight on my body.  I know better; therefore, I must do better!

Today, I will begin The 8 Week Experience!

I will also exercise and eat as clean as possible.  I always start out strong, but tend to fall off over time.  My focus is simply 8 weeks for now.

Stay with me, pray for me, cheer me on or call me out if needed.  I NEED a community behind me.  I can do this!
