‘Tis The Season

I truly do love this time of year! I love the weather because I get to wear my cute boots and scarves. I love the sales, music, and the friendly faces too. Right next to the people with those friendly faces, are the ones who absolutely dread the holiday…yet, they still get out there with…

Friends…How many of us have them?

I feel that I am the type of woman that can walk into a room full of strangers and leave out with a few potentially good friends. In order for that to be true for any of us, we have to want to connect with others and be intentional about it. I think a lot…

What 40-something me has learned from the 20-something me

I finally got the opportunity to go on my vacation and it was absolutely magical! From the travel to Miami, the cruise itself and coming home, everything was stress-free and just what I needed. The weather was perfect and I even lost weight while eating everything the ship had to offer including my midnight pizza…

Early Bird Does Catch The Worm

One of my clients gets up every morning at 4:30 to take a walk or go to a class at the gym. I don’t even think that my body will know what to do at that time. I know that I would get a lot more done if I got up early. The few people…

You Only Live Once (YOLO)

Would you please stop worrying about what people think of you! It is hard. I have to admit that. In a very…very….small, minute way I do worry about what people think of me. I am also learning that what they do think of me is their issue, not mine. We all want people to see…

I love a Little Mystery

via Daily Prompt: Mystery I think we all need a little mystery in our lives. It keeps things interesting…takes us away from boredom and the routine that our lives sometimes have. I can admit that for the most part I love certainty. I am most comfortable when I have an “itinerary” for what is going…

I’ve got 99 Problems..and then there were none

The brain is a very complex and amazing organ. It is forever filtering infinite amounts of inputs, sounds, sights, smells and on and on…AMAZING!! I have read that a lot of this information we receive is not recognized. That is because we focus our attention on the things and people that we care about. That…

Grown-up love…YUMMY!

Everyone needs love. Everyone wants it and listening to people talk, there are way too many that do not know how to get to it. Love is so important. It gives us the energy we need to make it through the day. It gives us the motivation to push forward toward our dreams. When someone…

Strategic Silence

I have a lot on my mind. I have a lot to say, but I am not a talker. I am not into wasting words. On the other hand, I am truly turned on by real conversation! I love having conversations that stimulate the mind, make you think, and cause growth. Small talk is not…

Tea Time

I used to feel like I got cheated because I did not have a daughter when I felt like I was done having children. I wanted 3 children because for some reason my life always included that number so it feels pretty lucky for me. I wanted a GIRL!!! I mean why not? Growing up…

Influencing Others

Over the last couple of months, I have become addicted to listening to podcasts, audiobooks, and talk radio…more than listening to music. It was so strange to me at first but it feels like I am being more productive. I talk about reading more and improving so when I am driving in the car, sitting…

Dealing With Their Judgement

Whether we are home with family or in a room full of strangers, we are all being observed and judged at some point. What you are wearing, smelling like, how you are rocking your hair, what you are doing, saying, or otherwise is all being watched and someone will always have something to say. And…
