    What Do You Stand For?

    The importance of taking care of ourselves is not only something I blog about regularly but it’s something that I believe is key to living my best life. One of the ways I stay positive and focused is by subscribing to various newsletters & quote of the day services, so I can start my day off on the right foot. It get’s my “juices” flowing and inspires me to push thru the yuck and live each day to the fullest. A while back I received an email from Rick Itzkowich of quoteactions.com, that I just had to share! It challenged me in a way I hadn’t thought about before, and what I love about his stuff…

    4 Sure Fire Ways that Will Help You Lose Weight

    Last year was the year I, Judy Davis, the Direction Diva chose to change my life. For far too long I had let the stress and chaos of the military lifestyle dictate my day-to-day experience and my weight. From food choices and steadily increasing numbers on the scale to the excuses justifying my infrequent visits to the gym, I was far from person I longed to see in the mirror. So in January of last year I set a weight loss goal to lose 50 pounds before I turned 50 (on March 21, 2015). I’m proud to say that not only did I lose the weight, but I hit my goal…

    6 Steps to Get You Back on Track

    If you have listened, watched or chatted by the water cooler, you have probably had your fill listening to how bad our economy is.  With the stock market on a downward trend, foreclosure rates rising and well everything else that is going on in the world today, it’s hard to get away from it all. This morning I had a conversation with a fellow milspouse that got me to thinking about where my attention has been, and how it has affected my thoughts and actions these last few weeks.  I realized that by inundating myself with the media’s interpretations and predictions of what is to come, I’ve gotten caught up in the negativity,…

    WAHM Life: Reality Checks & The Importance of A Business Plan

    I’m sure my business partner is looking at the title of this post and cleaning the chi tea off of her computer screen as she chokes and digests the fact that I actually am blogging about the importance of planning. Maybe I should warn her….nah, what’s the fun in that, and besides it’s fun making her spit things all over 🙂 ! You on the other hand are probably reading this and wondering why she’s spitting, and choking right now. Truthfully, the fact is that having me as a business partner isn’t the easiest thing, and I’m fortunate that she “gets” me enough to stick around. You see, I’m a go with the…
