No Doubt

I can be honest. I doubt myself a lot. Question and over analyze. To the point where there are many times that I talk myself out of things. I convince myself that there is a reason that something can't or won't happen and then I throw obstacles in my own way. Negative thoughts creep in, … Continue reading No Doubt

Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda

So many times we are presented with opportunities that we do not see or that we do not acknowledge. Sometimes that opportunity does not come packaged the way that we want it to. Sometimes we are busy looking at something else and completely miss the opportunity altogether. Then we are left with the "shoulda, coulda, … Continue reading Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda

Dating And Social Media

I’m new to the dating game. Not really, but kind of sorta. Let’s start from the beginning. I’ve only been dating post divorce a short time. I was married for about 11 years and dated the ex-husband for another four or so before that. So that takes us back circa 1998. We weren’t using cell … Continue reading Dating And Social Media

The Panic Room

  I've been a worrier my entire life. I can't remember a time that I didn't worry. I'm always thinking, pondering, mind always spinning. To some point that has served me. My imagination and creativity benefits. Everything else does not. I'm often tired, exhausted, and easily irritated by people. Most people don't outwardly see that … Continue reading The Panic Room

Just Another Manic Monday

Sometimes I feel like there needs to be at least two more of me. And even then, I feel like I may only be able to get done only half of what's on my To Do list. By the time my day ends, I'm looking at the list and wondering how on earth I thought … Continue reading Just Another Manic Monday

I had just truly become a single mother and was starting to acknowledge and accept that the life I thought I had was not real. After agonizing and sitting on all of it all alone, I called a few … Continue reading Happy Birthday to CLS!

Energy Vampires

Energy. It's real.  It determines your mood. It's the reason people are drawn to you, or just the opposite. I've been enamored by vampires since I was a kid. They are sexy, mysterious, but at their core, they take. They feed. As do energy vampires. I'm not sure that they even know that they are … Continue reading Energy Vampires

Can You Stand The Rain?

I have so many women (people in general) who come to me for coaching to figure out how to get through hard times and stress. We all need a little help every now and then. And if you haven't had any hard times, I salute you. One thing that always happens is, we ask why, … Continue reading Can You Stand The Rain?

Crying over LIFE and Candy Crush

“My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.” Maya Angelou The train is ticking down the tracks; I’m waiting patiently to run to the back seat without being too aggressive. I need … Continue reading Crying over LIFE and Candy Crush

Love Don’t Love You

February. It's still the beginning of the year. We just finished setting resolutions. Now we are supposed to spend a lot of money to tell someone I love you. The concept of love is already abstract enough. No one person loves the same. There are countless books written on the art of love, how to … Continue reading Love Don’t Love You
