May I learn all my lessons this year

I am going into this New Year with a couple of realizations that I hope stay with me. They may not be new to you. In fact, they may not be new to me, but I think I may finally be starting to realize the meaning here.

A new year

Here we are at the end of another year and beginning of a new one. It is true that the older I get, the faster time seems to go! It feels like we were just moving into 2017 a couple weeks ago, and now we are getting ready to greet 2018.

Well, I have given . . . → Read More: A new year

Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!! Please enjoy whatever holidays that you celebrate! And if you don’t celebrate any holidays – enjoy that too!

Take care of yourself

Oops – I missed last week – had to take a sick day (actually more like a sick week)! But I am back!

So, I think I will take this opportunity to remind you to take good care of yourself this holiday season (actually, all the time, but somehow it seems harder during the holidays). . . . → Read More: Take care of yourself

Be gentle with each other

This is a rough time of year for so many people, so if you run into someone who seems to be having a difficult time of it, please take a little extra time to see what you can do to help. We are all sometimes on the edge, . . . → Read More: Be gentle with each other

More women speak out

One more time, then I am done with this topic. Now more and more women are coming forward. I really want to believe all of them, but I am starting to have my doubts. I wish we could rely on everyone – men and women – to tell the truth about these things, but we . . . → Read More: More women speak out

Why did these women wait so long to tell their stories?

There are a lot of women coming out of the darkness and telling us about how they were abused, assaulted, and harassed. There are a lot of people who are saying that these things happened a long time ago and why didn’t these women come out sooner with these allegations.

Come on people! The reason . . . → Read More: Why did these women wait so long to tell their stories?

Do I want to know, or do I want to be in the dark?

These days I can’t decide if I want to be an informed citizen or I want to be kept in the dark. Of course, I really do want to be informed, but I sometimes have a hard time digesting everything that is going on in our country right now.

I am absolutely flabbergasted at how . . . → Read More: Do I want to know, or do I want to be in the dark?

I am not always the person I want to be

I am not always the person I want to be. I want to be that person who can keep her cool no matter what happens – I am working on it, and I am not there yet. I want to be the person who truly wishes all people the best, regardless of how they have . . . → Read More: I am not always the person I want to be
