Put the glass down and duck.

Today I am sharing something from a FaceBook Friend… By Christina Dawson A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy…

Make up

You gotta be kidding me! This week’s blog is a soapbox rant, so be prepared – teehee I was driving to a networking event the other morning when I came upon a car going 5 miles under the speed limit.  That in itself can be frustrating if you’re in a hurry, but I was good…

Birds Gotta Fly

At what point does a parent “let go”? When your children learn to walk? When they start school? When they get their driver’s license? When they turn 18? When they move out of the house? When they turn 21? When they quit asking your advice? When they get married? When they have children of their…

Sometimes you just want to scream.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!  Okay, I feel better now.  Grin. Have you ever had a moment, or a day, when you just wanted to scream out loud?  I bet most of us have.

Lunch with friends

I know I’ve written about this before, but it bears repeating… The Internet is not a replacement for interpersonal relationships! World English Dictionary online says this:  Interpersonal (adj) between persons; involving personal relationships. Today I had lunch with a couple of friends, and we just chatted away the hours.  We probably could have continued to…

Life’s a dance

Life’s a dance. Do you know the John Michael Montgomery song, Life’s A Dance? “Life’s a dance you learn as you go. Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow.” “The longer I live the more I believe you do have to give if you wanna receive.” “Been knocked down by the slamming door, picked myself up…

Pay Attention While Driving!

Wow.  That is what I said, for about five minutes straight, yesterday. I was driving on I40, heading to an appointment in Durham, in the passing lane cruising along about 70mph and singing with the radio.  Out of the corner of my eye I see smoke or dust or something.  I glance over and (as…
