It is getting close to a new year, and besides working on my New Year’s goals, working on my mess of an inspiration board is on my list. An inspiration board (some call a vision board) helps you pull together your thoughts, goals, ideas, etc. that visually bring you joy and that inspire you. IContinue reading “Inspiration Board”

What 2021 has taught me…
As the holidays approach, I start to think about New Year’s goals and/or what I hope to learn, achieve and do, in 2022. I often start with reflecting on what I learned this past year. So, this blog will explore a number of lessons learned. Hoping you get a chance to reflect and dig deepContinue reading “What 2021 has taught me…”
What is authenticity?
Finding authenticity today can be hard. There is a lot of people, places and things that are not what you believe them to be, nor can you find your own voice and self in a sea of social media, news, social constructs of what you “should” and “should not” be as a man, woman, person,Continue reading “What is authenticity?”
A short post for this week but I wanted to honor those men and women who get up each day, head out the door, and work hard for themselves, their families and their communities. Labor Day is a day of appreciation and a day of rest. As our current economically climate is challenged due toContinue reading “Labor Day”
What does it take to be successful in college?
Most college bound students went back to class this week. For some, a huge change from last year’s COVID college experience or for some, it is their first-time leaving home, moving out, etc. Lots of changes, emotions, responsibilities, shifts to dorm rooms, attending classes, managing time, homework, and for some, sports, clubs and work. IContinue reading “What does it take to be successful in college?”

I think there are two kinds of gossips; ones who thrive on it, seeks it out, uses it to be build relationships with others; and onesContinue reading “Gossip Creates False Alliances”
Habits of Happy People
What makes people happy… I do want to start this post with a disclaimer; no one is happy every day, I don’t believe it to be possible. I think that everyone carries their stress, anxiety, etc. differently, that we carry a range of emotions and thoughts. Some heavier than others. However, I am always tryingContinue reading “Habits of Happy People”
Are you Creative?
I remember as a child, thinking or knowing that I was not creative. I wasn’t artistically talented, nor was I overly talented in music, dance, or theater; I am not a creative writer; I cannot draw; nor come up with exciting ideas, solutions, or concepts. No, I defined myself for most of my life asContinue reading “Are you Creative?”
This past year has been a crazy, fun, challenging, year for us. As we prepared for a baby, and I was very sick during most of the pregnancy, on top of working numerous contracts, taking care of my family, etc. the little store that I had started in 2018, went to the wayside. There justContinue reading “The Shop”
Every time we go to visit family in Pennsylvania, we always go to Longwood Gardens. We have been there dozens of times but every time we go, we see something different. This time, it was the giant lily pads. They were amazing and huge! You have the urge to want to stand on one becauseContinue reading “Lily Pads”
