Do Your Routines Serve or Sabotage You?

It is the beginning of the year and goals are at the top of everyone’s lists. Resolutions sound great but a 12 month time horizon all but sets them up for epic failure-again. If you want this year to be different, listen up! Goal accomplishment is what you want. We all set goals, but mostContinue reading “Do Your Routines Serve or Sabotage You?”

The Coup We Saw Coming

A brazen act of white domestic terrorism on our nation’s Capitol: thousands of people streaming toward the seats of Congress, with nothing between them but a flimsy chain link fence and a few glad-handing police officers, who essentially gave the armed insurrectionists a warm welcome, a grand tour, and escorted them with kid gloves into……Continue reading “The Coup We Saw Coming”

Make the Plan, Plan to Work

Hey, there! Is your vision clarified? Milestones identified? Great! But, if not, start here. If so, then let’s get into firming up the plan and the plan of attack! Bye-Bye, Comfort Zone In digesting and implementing the 12 Week Year by Moran and Lennington, I found the next steps to be the hardest to doContinue reading “Make the Plan, Plan to Work”

Love in the Time of Corona

For me, watching coupling trends or items of the like are of interest to me. I mean, real trends, not gossip. For example, China reported a record-high number for divorce filings in March, after their nation exited lockdown. This was timely and interesting to me as I found the report just as we entered sheltering-in-placeContinue reading “Love in the Time of Corona”

It’s Hard Out Here – Pimping or Not (Part 2)

Let’s resume our conversation. Last time, I used an all-too-common example, a lost job. A lost job, no matter the why, is an opportunity for new enterprises — a new business, a trip, time off to spend with family and friends, continued education, and more. Training our minds to look at adverse or undesired situationsContinue reading “It’s Hard Out Here – Pimping or Not (Part 2)”

It’s Hard Out Here – Pimping or Not (Part 1)

Life Lessons: Learning How to Find Meaning in Rough Times In times like these, hopelessness is increasingly becoming a common feeling.

On top of that, our daily lives can bring challenges and negativityContinue reading “It’s Hard Out Here – Pimping or Not (Part 1)”

July: The Freedom Series

Since June, I’ve thought about the notion of freedom in earnest. In the wake of all that is going on regarding systemic racism, police brutality, and health inequities, freedom just feels… absent; more of a lofty goal than a reality. For this reason, each week I’ll explore an adjective of freedom. This week I’m focusingContinue reading “July: The Freedom Series”

TSC 1: What does it mean to be a sister?

What is sisterhood?  My younger sister and I would most likely not be friends if we were not sisters born 19 months apart to the same parents. Don’t get me wrong; she’s funny, intelligent, a good dancer, and I love her, but our circles don’t overlap. When I think of our personalities, interests, and thingsContinue reading “TSC 1: What does it mean to be a sister?”
