Avocados and yoga have something in common – I don’t get either of them. Yes, I am one of those weird people who, despite the incredulous looks from friends and acquaintances, just don’t get the appeal. I hear the gasps already. Let’s take avocados. I can’t get past the texture. Put it on toast, cut up in a salad, smashed… 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 was never one for jumpsuits (the whole peeling everything off to go to the restroom thing – awkward). However, I like the look and in the interest of trying something new yet simple, I decided to give it another try. This black jersey jumpsuit is washable, comfortable and stylish – dress it up with heels or keep it simple… Read More
When I sit down at my desk the one thing that inspires me to be mindful are the flowers on my desk. They are simple supermarket flowers – cost me $4.00 – yet when placed in a small simple vase, they bring a smile to my face and inspire me to write. It’s the simple things in life that can… Read More
How often is it that we give ourselves permission to do absolutely nothing and to feel good about it? No guilt. No remorse. No knots in your stomach wondering who will find out? Not often I bet. This past Saturday when I woke I looked at my calendar then sat stunned for a few minutes. I must have made a… Read More
It is so easy to fall into the habit of needing more. We feel as if there isn’t enough and continue accumulating things without giving thought to what we really need. When I retired from practicing law, I looked at my closet and gave away or donated so many clothes – suits, dresses, shoes even jewelry. It gave me a… Read More
