Willpower is having the ability to do what you need to do, regardless if you feel like it or not. I concede, I falter on this virtue more often than I’d like to admit. It’s not even things I don’t want to do or don’t feel like doing.

More lists to love!
If you ever need a book recommendation, I am your gal! This year, I have major plans to cut down on my To Read List in a major way. Continue reading 2017 To Read List
If you’ve met me, you have learned pretty soon that I love lists. I make lists of lists that I need to make. With each new year, a sort of tradition of mine is to list my hopes, desires, my “need to do”, and plans. New years are great for organizing your life like that.

Coming to the end of what seems like a horribly tedious year, I am trying to remind myself of the brightness and optimistic memories I experienced from 2016. Continue reading A Look Forward at the End of the Year
I’m pretty proud of myself today. I achieved several accomplishments in my workouts, eating habits, and especially my writing habit. It’s nice to reach new personal records, as it’s a natural high for me. Continue reading New High
In preparation for NaNoWriMo, I have dusted off a few of my writing books from my bookshelf and started to delve into one in particular, “A Writer’s Workbook” by Caroline Sharp. It provides daily exercises for writers, and I can’t think of a better time to practice some of these exercises. Continue reading New Warm-up
I survived my workshop I gave in Tennessee at the American Association of Zookeepers’ national conference. Barely. Continue reading New Day, New You
100 Days, 100 Ways of EarthFit. Not exactly what I envisioned when I started my 100 day challenge, but I accomplished a lot during that time. It was without a doubt an amazing exercise that has developed into a habit, at least I hope. Continue reading Beyond 100 Ways- The Next Chapter
