Countdown to 30….Part 2

  Let’s also title this Some Lessons Learned In 30 Years. 1. Mom is basically always right. No, seriously. I can maybe think of one time she wasn’t completely right. (But sometimes you just have to follow your heart.) 2. SAVE moolah for emergencies. Maybe in my 30s I’ll finally get this one right. 3….

Countdown to 30…Part 1

  Yesterday marked exactly one month till I turn the big 3-0. It was like a fire was lit under my tail. I was motivated to get so much stuff done, stocked my fridge with healthy groceries, worked out…I’m ready for this!! But first, I need to slim down some more and I have exactly…

Kem and El DeBarge In Concert (FINALLY!)

  I have been a fan of El DeBarge since I was little. I still have my cassette tape that has Who’s Johnny on it! So needless to say I was so excited to see he was opening for Kem. While I’ve waited almost 30 years to see El, I was really all about seeing…

Compassion

Compassion is apparently a virtue I have forgotten lately. The image below, which I found on Pinterest (shocking, I know…), was the wake up call I needed. I need to lose the ego. Stop looking at the past, placing blame, being hurt and angry. I need to forgive. I have confused “being a doormat” and compassion. They…

Letting Your Heart Heal

I remember after my first love and I broke up I was devastated. I couldn’t eat, I went out drinking everyday with friends to numb the pain and listened to the sappiest of songs. I remember being in fetal position on the floor sobbing to “Can We Still Be Friends” from Todd Rundgren, “Holding On To…

Shine A Light of Positivity

I’ve had a perfect Sunday morning so far. Woke up, poured a hot cup of coffee and got to catch Joel Osteen on TV. Joel’s message always inspires and encourages me. Today’s message was regarding leaving “deposits” in the world. When he says “deposits” he means leaving encouraging words and actions. Compliment someone today. Help…
