When Love Hurts

When I think of a monthly theme for February I always think of love. I think of the loving relationships I share with my family and friends. I think of the things I love to do and the places I love to go. I think of cherished memories. Which now reminds me of my mother’s […]

The Wonder of a New Year

Imagine. Believe. Resolve. Achieve. Happiness. Success.  These are common words that motivate us to pursue what our hearts truly desire.  What will you do once your dreams come true?  Envision you are at the end of 2018.  But wait! 2018 just began.  That’s right.  This year, we begin with the end in mind.  So, take […]

The Gift

I was at the nail salon not too long ago.  My favorite technician was unavailable, so I was invited to sit at the station next to hers.  When my nails were dry, I paid my technician, offered her a tip, and then reached over to offer my favorite technician a tip.  My favorite technician met […]

Peace Begins with Me

As Christmas time approaches, I am reminded of the Christmas song titled, “Let There Be Peace On Earth.” Webster’s Dictionary defines peace as: The normal, non-warring condition of a nation, group of nations, or the world. A state of mutual harmony between people or groups, especially in personal relations. Peace begins with us, individually.   As we go about our day-to-day business, we can maintain a state of tranquility. As we relate to and engage with our loved […]

By saying “I am a commitment to,” reminds me that I am the commitment, it lives inside of me, and I am fully accountable for its outcome. I strive to embody the quality and exemplify the behavior in my everyday living. This year I […]

Reach Out and Touch Somebody

Remember Diana Ross’ song: “Reach out and touch somebody’s hand. Make this world a better place if you can.” Connection through touch is meaningful and it creates joy, solace, and fulfillment. Making a connection through touch is healthy and nourishing. Our loved ones feel our affection through our touch. Did you know? “We need 4 […]
