We cannot be ourselves unless we first take care of ourselves. Pick a few friends or seek professional help if you can. Find someone to talk to when you need to get those feelings out. Find someone who will just listen without judgement, without expecting explanations or details, without asking questions. Just finding that person who will be there to… 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 came across this wall mural while walking down the steps in a public garage in downtown Sarasota, FL At each landing on the steps there was a beautiful wall mural reflecting the artistry in the community. We all have passions that move us. One of mine is dance. It does not matter if it is the graceful lines of… Read More
A hot sultry day in Miami but full of Miami vibes! It does not cost anything to stroll through the Miami Design District and look in the windows or enjoy the artwork. It takes you back to the days of Crockett and Tubbs and the sounds of Phil Collins singing about “Something In The Air Tonight.” When you… Read More
I am so incredibly blessed and grateful to be celebrating my 70thth birthday. Yes, I said “70th.” Our lives are not measured just in years but by the impact that we have had on other and others have had on us. As I have done in the past, I like to celebrate and give gratitude to those who have been… Read More
We have always heard that competition makes us better in some way because we work harder to be “better” than someone else at something else. It is easy to give in to the thought that we rise because of the thrill of competition – the rush to beat the next person. We compare our performance, our looks, our success, our… Read More
Sometimes the caretaker needs to be cared for. Sometimes the helper needs to be helped. Sometimes the strong need to show weakness. Sometimes the mentor needs to be mentored. Sometimes courage has gone too deep for us to reach it. Sometimes motivation is something that just eludes us. Sometimes the hugger needs a hug. Sometimes the best friend needs a… Read More
