I contribute to this blog when I am motivated to do so, but not because it’s been X amount of time since my last post.  In so doing, I hope to provide quality over quantity.

S^!T WILL HAPPEN

A short while ago, a friend of mine posted a meme that read:

Shit will happen. Life will suck.
It’s how you handle it that makes the difference.

This is an age-old lesson, taught by many. The wording is often different, but the message is unmistakable. Maybe because it’s so simple. For me, it was Wayne Dyer’s delivery of it that hit home. I remember him saying…  (more)

LET’S STOP EMPOWERING PEOPLE

All over the Internet (at least MY little corner of it), there is a LOT of talk lately about empowering. Mostly, I see it coming from (female) life coaches, and is aimed at women; empowering women to fulfill their potential; empowering women to…  (more)
