How wonderful is it to receive a smile from a total stranger, a compliment or a kind gesture? Well, I found out recently, and it is tried and true, a for sure way to have a great day-everyday...smile at yourself, compliment yourself and give yourself a kind gesture. I know it sounds silly but trust me it works. My friends are now firm believers in this. WHen you really consider it, you will soon realize that you may be your biggest critic but you can be your biggest fan. Why not love…Continue

I just read an article by Chris O'Brien, writer for the San Jose Mercury News, who made some very interesting predictions for 2011. If, like last year, even 50% of his predictions come true, it will be quite extraordinary for the US and the rest of the global economy.
Here are a few of Chris' eleven predictions (in his own words) for 2011 that I concur with:…Continue

Recently, Tory Johnson, the Good Morning America career contributor, talked about how job seekers are using plastic surgery to help them get jobs. Obviously, Tory didn’t support the concept and neither do I. While I’ve conceded the point that there is age bias out there in the work place, there is also a perspective I would like to impart on my peers.
First, if you want to get plastic surgery because you’ll feel better about yourself, I’m all for it. I think plastic surgery is a…Continue

Oh my goodness. Tonight, I had flashbacks.
Not flashbacks in the sense of, “Whoa, I’ve done way too much acid, man.”
More like, flashbacks of when my child was an infant, and we were in the throes of dealing with reflux and colic and CONTINUOUS, angry crying.
I felt shell-shocked. Anxious. Overwhelmed. Heartbroken. At a loss. Scared. Not sure. Full of doubt. Inadequate.
I picked up my son from daycare today. He…Continue
