We all have role models and mentors that we look up to as we continue on our journeys. At some point we all aspire to be “just like Mike” figuratively speaking. We want to be just like those people who influence and guide us along the way. No matter what age we are there are still those people in our… Read More
Discovering Me! Discovering You!
In this category, I think it is important for you to know something about me such as who I am, what has been my journey and how I made the decision to start this blog. I want to share the journey I have traveled so far and how I came to be the me that I know and love today. I find it extremely exciting and invigorating to meet other women and learn their stories. This section will share the stories of our lives – not just mine. It is not that I think my life’s story has been so different than millions of other women out there but it may be just different enough that someone will read it and find comfort or inspiration in the “sameness” or just see it as inspiration to look at your own journey and how you became the wonderful you that you are today. I hope that other women want to share their stories as well.
Each day is a new opportunity to learn something new. It can be a new word, a new recipe, a new language – every day in every way we are learning. Maybe we are coping with the loss of a job or a loved one, dealing with a serious illness, helping our children or something that impacts the way our lives used to be and is now forcing us to learn to make the most of our lives as they are in our new reality. Maybe we have entered a new phase of life like retirement, parenthood, returning to school to pursue another degree, taking a dance class or swim lessons. Every day in every way we can learn and embrace something new. Together we can keep learning!

Granted the last year was spent outdoors on my own lanai or in my own community alone or distanced from friends, family and even neighbors. But now many of us are vaccinated and emerging from the pandemic… Read More
Have you ever met someone who was bigger than life? You know – someone whose laugh is bigger or louder. Someone who practically screams when she laughs. Someone whose fashion is bolder, brighter, wilder than you would ever think of buying. Oh – you avoid those people? Big mistake! We all need that person in our lives. We all need… Read More
“It doesn’t matter what it is. What matters is what it will become.” Dr. Seuss I do not know about you but I cringe whenever I hear the expression “it is what it is.” Is it really? Maybe when you are talking about the weather. Maybe when you are talking about what day of the week it is. Get my… Read More
Every day is an opportunity to do better than the day before. Each morning I wake with gratitude and joyfulness looking forward to the day ahead thankful and excited to be alive for yet another glorious day. It is up to me to continue that feeling throughout the day and to pass it on whenever I get a chance. I… Read More
“No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I AM ENOUGH. It’s going to bed at night thinking, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that I am also brave and worthy of love and belonging.” When determining perfection, we have to consider that only things can be perfect but… Read More
