Hello and welcome! I am thrilled you have found your way here! I am a reformed insurance professional, a certified personal trainer, and a freelance writer. I am a law enforcement wife, mom to two shelter cats (Maris & Mickey), a fitness enthusiast with a bad habit of binge-snacking, sports nut, craft beer aficionado, lover of all things 80s, and general purveyor of good vibes. Ten years ago I took on a personal journey to change my own outlook from negative to positive. I now describe myself as a reformed pessimist turned realistic optimist, and I want to pay the good feelings forward. I believe in “filling up the glass”- taking control of your own attitude and creating your own joy. I intend to write about a variety of topics depending on where my thoughts take me on any given day. I hope to offer motivation, encouragement, perhaps a moment or two of clarity, and with any luck the occasional laugh. Here’s to filling your own glass…Cheers! Karen
