I notice when I ask people how they are doing a lot of times the response is “I am blessed.” The way I see it we are all blessed. Every single one of us. Just waking up in the morning is a blessing and for that we should all be grateful. Not only are we blessed in being alive but… 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.

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!
It seems a lot of people spend their lives holding their breath waiting for something to happen. Waiting for the day to end. Waiting for the evening to come. Waiting for that big break in their careers to come. Waiting for a promotion. Waiting for retirement. Waiting for someone to make them happy. Waiting for “Mr. Right” to come along. … Read More
“Today you are You. That is truer than true. There is no one alive who is You-er than You.” Dr. Seuss Back in the late ’80s there was a book authored by Robert Fulghum titled “All I Really Need To Know I learned in Kindergarten.” It was a huge success and is still in print today because it reminded us… Read More
“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” Dr. Seuss How many times a day do we see people walking with their eyes on their cell phones or worse walking without seeing? By that I mean, when you are so deep in thought that you become oblivious to the things going on around… Read More
Now is the time to be even more courageous in our lives. As we age, we should see the wisdom in stepping back and evaluating those things that we have allowed to get in the way of being our best selves so that as we can move forward into what should be our best years not encumbered by our past….

“The best protector for any woman, one that will serve her at all times and in all places, is courage.” Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Women’s Rights Advocate My single hope is that no woman has to live with shame, bullying, self-loathing or anything less than the ability to live in her own greatness. To do these things we need to remember… Read More
