HAPPINESS
On April 20, 2019 | 0 Comments

Several people asked me, “What would your advice be for men?” While I think what I wrote for women can benefit men, too, there are inherent differences between the sexes, therefore, my advice is different.

Most people assume that the opposite of love is hate. When you hate someone, there are lingering feelings present. Even if you think you want to see the other person suffer in some horrific way and be in pain—it’s typically because you’re in pain. Maybe you had grand ideas and dreams for the future that […]

Jealousy, Regret, Shame and Other Unnecessary Emotions
On March 14, 2019 | 0 Comments

When I hear someone discuss how “jelly” they are of someone else, I always stop and wonder…why? Jealousy is a waste of time in my opinion and it does more harm than good. I wonder how many women disparage themselves because they don’t look like the “ideal standard of beauty”? (which was created by select […]

Acceptance
On February 19, 2019 | 0 Comments

One lesson I’m often met with, is acceptance. It’s natural to want to control the outcome of things: interviews, sports, prepared meals, children…however, the truth is, you can prepare the best you can and perform to your best. What will happen, will and we have to accept the outcome.

Trusting My Tingles
On March 10, 2016 | 0 Comments

As a child I remember visiting the Chicago public library (the one with the two big lions…a huge sign for me). My parents would take the four of us on the weekend…occasionally my father would take the girls solo, perhaps to give my mother a much needed break. I was in awe at the number […]

Play Nice!!!
On October 13, 2015 | 2 Comments

I grew up with three sisters, and while I didn’t have a lot of exposure to boys, the exposure I’ve had to date leads me to believe wholeheartedly that “play nice” means something completely different for girls than it does for boys. For boys, the admonishment, “play nice” means, don’t give your brother/friend/sister/person a black […]
