What is commitment? Lots of definitions…..the most common: doing whatever it takes to achieve a goal long after the feeling that you had when you set it is gone. No matter what piece of life we are talking about the same principle is still there. Whether it is in a relationship, at work, or at home with your children; it touches all phases of our lives. The idea of commitment is one that I believe is now beginning to get watered down.
When you’re committed to an outcome there are no excuses, no stories, no reasons not to achieve it. But if you’re interested in an outcome you will do what’s convenient. You’ll come up with excuses to support your convenience. So, are you committed, or interested?
If commitment means doing whatever it takes to achieve a goal (no matter what that goal is) then why do so many people break their New Year’s resolutions before February? Why do people not complete simple activities at work? Why is it so hard to see your ? ...

It’s officially hunting season for Kentucky and Indiana…. Well hunting season officially started several weeks ago but with temperatures in the 90’s and me not wanting to sweat to death high up in a tree it has officially started now that the temperatures are low. Deer are beginning to move more, one deer in particular at my grandparents' farm that I have been chasing after for several years now. We named this buck “High and Tight” for his unmistakable tall and close together antlers. You can spot him from several hundred yards away. His ivory white antlers reach up into the sky higher than any other buck on our farm and most of the time it is just a tease from way too far away, when only binoculars can really get a clear picture of him. I had my first up close encounter with High N Tight last year during muzzleloader season….
I had just gotten all of my camouflage on and was headed out the door with my bow when my grandpa asked me for the third ...

Curious where to take the family this fall in Louisville? Here are some of our favorite places that will keep both the children and adults entertained this season:
Harvest Homecoming - Bringing visitors to Southern Indiana for over 50 years, this weeklong festival has something for everyone. From food stations (might I suggest the chicken and dumplings) to beer gardens and all sorts of carnival games and activities in between, you’ll also be able to shop local vendors at their booths.
Foxhollow Farm - Join them for their annual Fall festival where they’ll be activities for all ages, including live music and face painting.
Jack-o-lantern Spectacular - Always a fan favorite, go check out the walking trail at Iroquois park with over 5,000 uniquely carved pumpkins lighting the way.
Haunted houses - looking for a little more of a scare? Check out one of Louisville’s several haunted houses, which include but are not limited to: Baxter Avenue Morgue. ...

It's true, here at WSG, we work with a lot of folks that are transitioning into a new phase of life and are getting ready to go to into assisted living. I have always felt like we helped these folks with a lot of compassion, trying to imagine, what if it was our family member, that was selling their home and moving into a new place where they knew they needed to be.
It was never easy watching the individuals or the families deal with this delicate issue. However, we found a passion in helping these folks. Again, what if it were our family?
And then it happened. A couple of weeks ago, mine and my husband's last living grandmother made the call to consider an assisted living facility. She decided to place herself and make a difficult decision an easy one for the family.
Right away I knew the burden she was lifting off of the family to make the decision to go into assisted living. Being from Oldham County, there was only one choice that was going to be for her, The Oaks. ...

Lets face it. There are some things that we just flat out don’t want to do; yet we do them anyway. Why? Obviously I’m not talking about family holidays with the crazy side or things like that. I am talking about at work. Think about the difference between working on something that you are super excited about vs something that you are dreading doing. Is the quality of work different? OF COURSE IT IS! You are enjoying it more, putting more of yourself into it, and you’re happy to take your time to make sure it comes out just right. Can you say the same for a project that you aren’t excited about? Of course not. Now, what if you got to choose what jobs/projects you got to do….? (Mic drop) We have a saying on our team: if it’s not a hell yes, then it’s a no! If you aren’t 110% into something then don’t do it! Because it won’t get your full effort or attention and it won’t turn out nearly as good. If you know that’s th. ...
