Phenomenal Friday-The Chicken And The Eagle!

This is my submission to Debbie’s Forgiving Friday series, where she writes about and invite others to share their thoughts on Forgiveness, Self-Love and Personal Growth.
It’s the last Friday of the year! It snowed heavily in my neighbourhood this morning and it was a challenge to roll out of bed because I was a bit melancholy that Christmas came and went without a kiss goodbye to its favourite fan! It disappeared gently into the good night at the stroke of Mid-Night December 25th and now the wait begins. Continue reading

Wonderful Wednesday-This Christmas!

Christmas-Decoration-Table-Family

It’s true, Christmas can feel like a lot of work, particularly for mothers. But when you look back on all the Christmases in your life, you’ll find you’ve created family traditions and lasting memories. Those memories, good and bad, are really what help to keep a family together over the long haul.   ~Caroline Kennedy

I hope everyone who celebrated had a wonderful Christmas, mine was extra special because I had both of my girls at home for the Holidays, the first in 2 years. We cooked, watched movies, ate, drank and was Merry. As we gathered around the table there was an overwhelming feeling of happiness with a mixture of apprehension that the day would soon be over we’d all be headed our separate ways, I would be back to work and my daughters back to respective schools.

Wonderful Wednesday-Are You Having A Quarter Life Crisis?

 

 

 

For the third year in a row, Bustle’s Upstart Awards are honoring young women who are doing incredible things in the realms of business, STEM, fashion and beauty, the arts, philanthropy, and beyond. Want to be an Upstarts honoree one day? Read on for career tips, insights, and inspiration to help get you there.

Many millennials will be familiar with the trope of a mid-life crisis: somebody in middle age who is feeling trapped and stagnant, and who reacts to that feeling by adopting radical new behavior, from moving jobs to buying a Jaguar, in pursuit of a better experience. Too young for a mid-life crisis, more and more millennials are experiencing a “quarter-life crisis” in college or post-graduation between the ages of 25 and 35. Are we all just weak-minded and unable to handle the pressures of the adult world? No, says science. The reason we’re experiencing this actually has a lot more to do with socioeconomic and demographic changes, high-pressure expectations, and how millennials relate to one another.

Meaning Monday-All The World’s A Stage-What role are you playing in it?

 

 

We are rarely taught the magic of believing in ourselves. instead, we are taught that we should limit our abilities, our dreams and our goals. We are taught that the tangible is just as far as we can see, anything beyond our sight is unattainable.

Phenomenal Friday-I Wish You Enough!

 

This one is from the files of Etta D. 
I found this Gem in my mailbox, sent to me back in 2006 and thought I’d share.

Recently I overheard a Father and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure.

Standing  near the security gate, they hugged and the  Father said, ‘I love you, and I wish you  enough.’

The daughter replied,  ‘Dad, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Dad.’

Wonderful Wednesday-People Who Talk To Themselves Aren’t Crazy, They’re Actually Geniuses

“If I were my peach smoothie body butter, where would I be?” I say to no one while I search for my favorite lotion. Then: “Aha! Here you are. You rolled under my bed.”

I talk to myself a lot. And I don’t mean only in the privacy of my own home. I talk to myself while I’m walking down the street, when I’m in my office or when I’m shopping.

Thinking out loud helps me materialize what I’m thinking about. It helps me make sense of things.

It also makes me look insane. Crazy people talk to themselves, right? They’re conversing with the voices inside their heads. If you’re yammering on to nobody, everyone thinks you’re a mental patient.

I’m sure many people have seen me wandering down the streets of NYC and thought, “The crack addiction is strong with that one.”
