Awaiting the Unknown

I write to encourage others to move positively forward. When I face my own challenges, I feel compelled to walk my talk. We have a health situation with a family member and indications have been that it may not be an easy go from here on out. BUT, we don’t know, yet, what they are […]

Hard to get up in the dark

Have you noticed it’s dark when you get up these days? I typically get up at 6AM. It’s dark now. During the summer it was easy. The bright sun shining through the curtains seemed to say, “Good Morning, Pam! It’s a wonderful new day! Let’s get this party started!” Last week, as I rolled over […]

Riding out Florence

I was having a conversation the other day with a friend who is frantic about the incoming hurricane. She was tracking it relentlessly and checking her phone for updates, constantly. She has family on the coast and was, understandably, concerned. However, her concern was stressing her out… big time. Her family had come to stay […]

I didn’t buy milk and bread

I did my regular grocery shopping on Wednesday, before the snow flew, and the store was jam packed with people buying bread and milk. We don’t drink milk and I didn’t need bread, so I didn’t buy milk and bread. Good thing, as the supply was basically depleted. Currently, living in the Southeast, we are […]

Lakawanna

Pennsylvania has some very strange town names. When we used to travel through PA, one of the town we passed was Lackawanna. (I spelled it incorrectly on purpose, I know nothing about the town and don’t mean any offense to those who live there.) We often passed the sign for Lackawanna College. We would tease […]

Not showing up

I have written on the topic of promise, agreements, commitments before, but I still find all too often that people think nothing of just not showing up for something they said they’d show up for. I find it very frustrating. Posting this as a reminder to keep your commitments (and if you don’t think you […]

WHAT?! Cars had ashtrays? They sure did. There was always one in the front […]

The Drama Train

I have written about drama before… https://newdirectionlifecoaching.com/strife-happens/ … but I see it often. Over-reacting or overly dramatic responses can ruin any occasion, whether it’s a • Family event • Friendly get together • Typical day at the office • School day • Phone call Once someone makes the leap from “cool and collected” to “overly […]
