When you’re 80, what do you want to see when you look back at your life? What if you had done every chore, taken care of every responsibility, raised children and taken care of a man or maybe more than one, but… Read full post »
I’M IN LOVE WITH AMERICA
When I heard My President speak last night, and My First Lady and previous President Bill Clinton, I realized…I’m in love with America.
If you were fortunate enough to have been born here, you really don’t know what you have. Sure there… Read full post »
Today I watched a silly little movie called Bride Wars. It’s all about 2 girls who are best best friends, who truly love each other for life. The movie ended with them reuniting after some tiff about who would get to have their wedding on a certain day. … Read full post »
Two years ago I had cancer, breast cancer. I don’t anymore.
It’s true that I changed my eating habits, less pizza, spaghetti & chili, more fresh fruit, veggies & lean meats. It’s true that I got back to exercising, specifically running, once I was well eno… Read full post »
If a girl who looks like Ronald McDonald can feel fabulous...then honey, so...can...you!
My whole life Ive had....hmmm, hair...big hair, crazy hair, out of the picture hair, you know the kind that gets cut off in pictures because its actually outside of the frame. Yes, thats me. And though I wa… Read full post »
This is an opportunity to honor an unsung hero on Open Salon...he provides that secret little voice, or rather that big masculine, manly voice (he would probably prefer that) that feels like a lighthouse on a stormy night, a security blanket to a little kid, or just that virutual dad that always… Read full post »
Did you know that another oil rig exploded Near Louisiana yesterday? I felt sad for the fish, the dolphins, the sea life the last time, what about you? I wanted to help but didnt know how. We cant fix a rig, but we can start respecting mother nature more...clearly we're not… Read full post »
I just woke up because I couldn’t breathe due to a cold.
Isnt it wonderful how God can and will speak if you listen, tune in?!?
God sends us messages every day.
The windows were open and I could hear a small cricket louder than the rest.
And I felt/heard/learned:/…
Today I woke up with thoughts of work in my head. I stumbled to the bathroom just to blow my nose and I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. I felt a bit down about the slow progress I've been making toward getting in shape.
And it just seemed to snowball… Read full post »
Everyone has had disappointments. A woman at my job recently interviewed for a different position that she really wanted and needed. She didnt get it. Its easy to see that she's now in a slump. She's down and she's lost motivation.
The same thing happened to… Read full post »
So often we women complain, get frustrated and vent about "our men,our men" or the lack of good men. But..............
We women can be difficult, and a little demanding. Im the first to admit that Im not perfect. Im a boatload of fun, and when I love...I love....I give my 110%… Read full post »
I didnt choose that title for the racy factor, Im referring to how I feel this morning. Its been a long time. You see ,I really did go from just under 6 figures to $6.25/hour or just a bit more as a telemarketer/phone salesperson. Clearly I (and many of you), have… Read full post »
When is the last time you recognized someone around you? Sure you may catch a vaps (caribbean word for strong and momentary rush to do something) and call a family member to say "I love you." But when is the last time you told a perfect stranger, "hey nice hairdo" or " thanks… Read full post »
I have a 110lb Rottweiler named Puppy, who is a house dog. Hey, he’s my puppy?!? Clearly, Im not too creative in the names dept. Anyway, I also have glass French doors. Needless to say, it’s not a great idea for this dog to jump on the doors and bark like/… Read full post »
Everyone has a meltdown once in a while. Yes, even the queen of positive (or maybe just the princess, Im really not that good) has her days. Yesterday was my day to lose it. I was just tired of my financial situation, of my truly pitiful job, and when you mix… Read full post »
Joy is possible, in all times, at all times, for anyone. You may not believe it yet, but YOU can feel joy even when your car A/C breaks, and you arrive sweaty and windblown every where you go. Joy is possible when your clothes are 2 sizes too small, and you cant… Read full post »
Its already 9:24 pm at night. In the 3.5 hours since I left work, Ive cooked dinner, walked a dog, fed cats, done a load of laundry, straightened up, returned phone calls and I cant remember what else. If you have kids youve probably done more. I give you all respect… Read full post »
Small things mean a lot. Sure we've all heard that before and maybe you think you already know all there is to know about this subject. But if you arent bored with this subject, perhaps I can show you something new...or at least inspire you to do some something small that… Read full post »
Im a person who dreams big. I mean really big. I have plans for myself 20 years down the line and Im still dreaming. Dreaming has never been my problem. I could do better with follow through, I guess.
