Mother’s Day has always been a special day for many of us. Like many others, my mom is no longer with me. I remember her and miss her immensely each and every day. She was my friend, confidant, biggest cheerleader and supporter. She was always completely honest with me and did not hold back in sharing her opinion. I don’t… 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!
Pretending to be someone other than who you really are day after day is exhausting! We’ve all been there haven’t we? In elementary school learning to play nice with the other kids where you were not accepted if you were the slightest bit different. In high school when you couldn’t do cool if your life depended on it but you… Read More
Many of us spend our lives chasing money as a means to happiness thinking that the more we have the happier we will be. Yes, we all need money to survive in this world but money is not what makes us rich nor is it what makes us truly happy. You ever wonder why many of those among us with… Read More
“Life is all about how you handle Plan B“ Suzy Toronto It’s a time old expression but said in a new way “Life is all about how you handle Plan B.” We do not know our true character or strength until we are challenged to step outside ourselves and discover what we truly are made of. I used to think… Read More
We ditched the evening gowns and tuxedos and donned denim and pearls all for a good cause. Here I am with Ariel Serrano, Artistic Director and Co-Founder of the Sarasota Cuban Ballet School supporting the Girl Scouts of Gulf Coast Florida at their annual fundraising event on Saturday, Sept, 29, 2018.
Confucius was a Chinese teacher, politician, and philosopher born in 551 BC. He has often been quoted and one of my favorites is that “It doesn’t matter how slowly you go, so long as you don’t stop.” So very true. These days everyone rushes to do everything – traffic never slows and drivers get more aggressive trying to get there… Read More
