I Too Have Been Thinking

Coffee talk time- I had most my coffee last week in a hotel room at the Bellagio in Las Vegas (those mountains were my morning peace), or in a taxi heading to a work appointment. I will have a Vegas recap later this week, dontcha worry!

Before I left for Vegas, I purchased Maria Shriver’s I’ve Been Thinking.  

I will be honest, 2019 has been already like a bit of a wave pool, with already many ups and downs. I haven’t been very motivated to write(hence the lack of posts), to work out like I used to, to eat well, to stay calm and gracious in situations I am struggling with. Becoming aware of this, I decided to purchase Maria Shriver’s book after following her on Instagram over the past few months and finding her daily posts/stories as inspirational and thought provoking.  

This book sat on my bedside table in Vegas all week, in my bag on flights & until finally being opened in a coffee shop over the weekend. From then have not been able to put it down, (even purchasing the companion journal) and I feel a new sense of motivation to continue improving myself, life, mind, body & soul.

It was just the nudge I needed to get out of the “rut” I had been feeling like I was in to start growing again and I am grateful for it.


The book reminds you of the importance of gratitude, love, faith, patience, letting go and my favorite the importance of the pause. In the end, re-evaluation is written about and that is what I have decided to do. You all know my interest in self-improvement, self-help and living your best life. But part of me believes maybe I am doing it wrong or looking at it wrong I should say. Maybe I’m doing too much, looking to far ahead or dwelling too much on things I need to let go. Maybe I’m being too hard on myself, not pausing and worrying….which is where my re-evaluation is beginning!
