A worthy role model

I wrote about role models once before and how our young people often look up to someone who is unworthy (in my opinion). Did you watch the All-Star baseball game on Tuesday night?  Even if you are not a fan, it had some memorable moments.  MLB chose to honor People Magazine’s Tribute for Heroes and […]

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 […]

Oh, the Possibilities

I have joined a Toastmasters group and the theme of tonight’s meeting is “Possibilities.”  What a great topic for my chosen field of work, life coaching  (shameless plug – grin)! I absolutely love the fact that every day is a new day.  When we wake up in the morning most of us have the option […]

I’ve probably mentioned, before, that I am an Army BRAT.    Have I ever mentioned that I am also a sloucher?  Not slacker!  Sloucher. (Is that a real word?)  Let’s put it this way, my posture could be better, and I only have myself to blame. When I was younger, my dad would come up behind […]

Why is it that some people don’t seem to understand responsible financial management?!

For a while there was a high school math class, Personal Finance, that actually showed you how to manage your money.  Things like how to keep a checkbook, pay your bills, what bills you should have, the estimated cost of things, SAVING money, budgeting, credit cards, are all important things.  Is this not offered anymore?  […]

How ya doin’?

I posted a quick status post about this earlier in the week.  I thought I might elaborate in this week’s BLOG – grin. How do you answer when someone asks you “How are you?” or “How ya doin’?”  Think about it.  It happened to me just this evening.  I asked someone “How are you?” and […]

Healthy vs. Inexpensive

While traveling recently, I was in a gas station/mini mart (unnamed) when I overheard a conversation between two young (7-10) children and their mother. It went something like this… Kids: Can we get these? Mom: No, I think we’ll go across the street and get some chicken nuggets. Kids: But we want these, and they’re […]
