Summer Activities That Work for Kids at Different Ages

It’s summer! That means little ones are home from school and there’s lots of time every day that needs to be filled! Or so I imagine. As you know, I don’t have any cuties myself, but I am an observer of humans, and that goes for little ones as well. They seem to me to have an abundance of energy and a lot of time to kill. So, I want to help out all of you grown humans in charge of them…

Why Are We Embarrassed?

If I’m not feeling perfect, I must figure out why. If I ignore it, it will just get worse. A feeling that use to confuse me was embarrassment. So, I gave it a good hard think and figured out the root cause. It’s one (or a combination) of the following reasons…

Move Forward, But…

Recently, I was watching the Real Housewives of New York and noticed that every time there was an emotional blowup of sorts, one of the women would inevitably say something like, “I just want to move forward.” That’s great, but they kept wanting to “move forward” without at all addressing the terrible thing they did (or that was done to them by a fellow RHONY costar). We all need to live in the present and look to the future, never letting the past hold us back. BUT, we must first deal with what happened. If we don’t, we won’t heal, and we’ll never really move past it. It’s hard, but I’ll hold your hand. Here’s how we do it….

Modern Marriage

I think being a lady is hard. We’re constantly being judged by friends, employers, employees, children, mothers, significant others, and even ourselves. We have so many roles to fill and in 2016, we can go from feeling like we have it all to feeling like we have nothing, in a matter of an hour. Life is complicated, and I think that it’s severely complicated our understanding of what can be the fabulous position of wife or lady-friend. I don’t like a complicated life, so it’s time we get to the bottom of this…

Lies Explode Like Eggs in a Microwave

Don’t lie. Life will be much simpler.

Even lies that seem to start out small or “harmless” will erode sooner than later and just cause us more trouble. We’ll end up becoming stressed and confused and life will be harder for us than if we just told the truth in the first place.

To avoid lying, we have to get to the bottom of why people do it in the first place. There are two answers:

I’m Not Me if I Can’t….

If I can’t create, I’m not me. I learned this truth about a year ago, when it became increasingly apparent to me that life behind a computer is arduous, while one in front of dreamy racks of clothes to be styled is heavenly.

If we aren’t doing the greatest things we were created to do, we’ll never be fulfilled. I have MS. I never write about this or talk about it on social media. It’s not because I’m trying to be secretive. It’s because of a lot of other reasons…
