  • Nothing is Normal, Yet Everything is Normal

    Nothing is Normal, Yet Everything is Normal

    One thing we all gained from 2020 is that life can change in a snap. What we thought was unusual in 2019, is now normal. In 2019, if we saw someone wearing a hoodie, with a mask, we would have though imminent danger, yet today that look of imminent danger is normal. In 2019, a…

  • Face Your Fear

    Face Your Fear

    Did you know that you could lead a happier, more successful life by facing your fear? It’s that simple! Take risks, face your fears and watch your life evolve. Many of us lose our true selves because rather than taking on the challenge, we walk the other way. Have you ever heard the saying “Slay…

  • Just Finish It!

    Just Finish It!

    As we are wrapping up 2020, there is no better time then now to finish it! If you want to feel accomplished, reduce anxiety, find happiness, or know success than finish that task (or goal) you have been delaying. Although you may not realize it, that task or goal keeps tugging on your subconscious, subtly…

  • …And The Snow Always Melts

    …And The Snow Always Melts

    Today, across most of the east coast we were blessed with a snowstorm. It’s 7:00 am and the world is quiet except for the occasional plow that rolls by. Looking out the window is an image of peace, joy and comfort. The wind is swirling the snowflakes about, the trees are covered with white blankets…

  • Dream Big Dreams

    Dream Big Dreams

    Dream big dreams and make them happen. Do you often find yourself wanting something, that you could never have? Who says you can’t have it? Don’t be your own dream squasher, live the dream. This is where I should tell you to make a dream board, but I’m not going to do that. I am…

  • How to Create an Empowering To-Do-List

    How to Create an Empowering To-Do-List

    If you want to lead your life in a desired direction, than put it on paper. There is so much power in a to-do-list, in fact, it could be the smallest, yet most important step to take control of your life. This is no joke! Today, go out and buy yourself a notebook, but not…

  • The Bonds of Friendship

    The Bonds of Friendship

    Friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between people. We ALL need friends. If there is one bit of advice I would give everyone, it is time with your friends. I found this blog most fitting today because Sunday I spent my morning with my friends, who I have the privilege of calling my besties…

  • Just Be Still

    Just Be Still

    Have you taken the time to just be still? This may sound like such a trivial task, but it could be a life-saver for many. I’ve been reading a lot about this Great Reset, a global initiative, and a discussion for another day. But the first component of the worldwide reset is to adjust our…

  • It’s Beginning! Broken Gridlock

    It’s Beginning! Broken Gridlock

    My flight was delayed at Newark Airport, so I went to the restaurant for a drink, the bar was still closed for social distancing. My life was a constant whirlwind, so this was expected. “Can I order a glass of Pinot Grigio, please?” I asked the waitress. “Sure, I’ll bring that right out.” She said.…

  • You Write the Script

    You Write the Script

    We often walk through life with our heads down, depressed, sad, and feeling sorry for ourselves, but the reality is that you write your own script. It’s up to you to create your happiness, your outcome, and your life. God is the director, but we write the story. He has given us the tools to…

    Today is a Gift: Thanksgiving 2020

    After completing the 30-Day Thanksgiving Day Challenge, we realize how many things we should all be thankful for each day. Many wonderful things in our life are overlooked, tossed aside, or under-appreciated because we are too busy to recognize our gifts. Today, on Thanksgiving, one of the most cherished holidays for many, let’s take the…

  • A Pain Unknown

    A Pain Unknown

    Some of us will never know the pain felt by those of color. After watching, the Bachelorette, as silly as this sounds, I understood and witnessed the true feelings of those trying to fit in. Sure, I know it’s TV and entertainment, but it is also genuine feelings of black people, who are trying to…

  • Perception: Flip the Switch

    Perception: Flip the Switch

    If there is one thing that you can change today, let it be your perception. Your perception can change your day from one of misery and stress to happiness and ease. It’s all in how you look at things. I’m sure you heard the question: Is the glass half empty or half full? This is…
