Have you ever felt that you are going through life playing a part someone else has scripted for you? Each day you open the script and prepare to live the next scene. Put on the outfit, put on a smile and then go through the day as if the cameras were rolling. When we are younger we play a part… 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!
I thought I would try a beautiful scarf because we all change our look from time to time but it doesn’t change who we are. Some of us try so hard to be different. We try to blend in and pretend that no one notices that we are different. You don’t have to try. All you need to do is… Read More
I cracked myself up today! Honestly! I was laughing at myself and it was such a good laugh that I almost came to tears. Have you had a good laugh today? Have you laughed at yourself today? I walked into a door frame as I exited my home office and reacted by saying “bad door!” Maybe you had to be… Read More
We all do it especially as we get older and reflect back on our lives. What if yesterday was all there was and today was yet to be? What if today is all there is and tomorrow will never be? What if? What if? What if? It’s easy to get caught up in playing the what if game. The problem… Read More
You are never a failure for having followed your dream. That it did not work out may be disappointing but not a statement on your ability to be successful. Reassess your position. Take all that you have learned and make the changes you need to continue moving forward. At one time or another we have all been told to “give… Read More
For many of us it’s much easier to blend into a crowd than to stand alone. It gives you a sense of belonging yet at the same time a sense of anonymity and a sense of relief at not being the only one. Sometimes standing with a crowd is the only way we feel like we are really being heard… Read More
