Tame Your To-Do List

To-do lists are never finished. Where does your list reside? In your head or on paper? I know too many women who allow their to-do list to swirl around in their heads. Even if some of the list is dedicated to paper, it’s not common for a woman to ensure every last thing is dedicated […]

The Value of a Smile

The Value Of A Smile Today I took my dog, Luke, for a walk.  It was a beautiful, quiet morning.  Very few people were out and about, and I was just enjoying the peacefulness, blue sky and warm air.   As I walked past a house on my route, the front door opened, a woman […]

“That Makes Me Glad.”

30 minutes ago, I told my husband I needed something with sugar. I wasn’t thrilled that we didn’t have a lick of sugar in the house. Well, that’s not true. But you know what I mean. We didn’t have junk food sugar. No brownies or cookies or candy or cake or cupcakes or ice cream […]

Until one of my ever-so-friendly customers […]

Shoot! Mindless TV Reeled Me In and Derailed Me!

I am mad at myself! I don’t even really know how it happened. Actually, I know exactly why it happened. Because I didn’t have my priorities down on paper. I’m speaking for myself here. I am in the middle of a big project. Every 15-minute increment that I invest in this project helps me advance […]

Overcome the Comparison Trap

I arrived at work yesterday morning for an office team ‘field trip,’ and the two millennial women in our office had on the best outfits. They looked so cute. Can I say that? My first thought when I walked in the door and saw them was, “Oh shoot, I wore the wrong thing. I clearly […]
