Okay, I turned 47 (yes, 47—what? That’s not old!) yesterday and I’ve certainly learned, or realized, a lot more than 47 things in my 47 years. But, as I was reflecting on my life and some of my lessons, or realizations, these 47 things easily came to mind randomly. See how many resonate with you.Continue Reading
Welcome to The 29-Day Love Challenge! If we were asked if we love ourselves, so many of us would say, with attitude, “Of course I love myself! What’s wrong with you?” But then far too many of us live day to day as if we don’t.

AND, I was stressed all day and night dealing with a “personal” situation (you know what THAT was). So the job change, plus my getting older, plus my poor eating habits, plus my stress level was the perfect formula for me to gain almost an additional 10 lbs! What the heck?!Continue Reading
