The Benefits of Failure

Tweet

No one wants to fail. Certainly not me. But sometimes failure can actually produce unexpected positive results. Let me tell you a story of how I learned this.

A couple years ago, my hubby and I decided to ride our BMW motorcycles from Myrtle Beach to Watkins Glen State Park, in the Finger Lakes […]

Tips to Get Your Goals to Sprout Wings and Fly

Tweet

We all know the power of goals, the power of vision, and the power of direction. But once we know what our goals are, how to we give life to them? There is a favorite Scripture of mine – Proverbs 29:18. It says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” I’ll paraphrase it, […]

For Balance in Life & Business, Be Intentional About Getting Out More

Tweet

I’ve been in Myrtle Beach for 20 years, having moved here from a little fishing village on the Puget Sound known as Gig Harbor, WA. I’m in the telecommunications business which has been fun and even though it’s an “offline” business, it’s maintained “online” since the advent of VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol). This […]

If You’re Gonna Quote it – GET IT RIGHT!

Tweet

Ok, so I’m tired today and maybe a little cranky. I wasn’t even sure what I was going to write about…then, there it was…a blog post that was emailed to me. And that’s ok, because I signed up for it. And usually I love to read posts from this gal. But by the very […]

I know you’ve heard the question – Are you a “morning person” or a “night owl?” Is this something we decided on for ourselves? I think not. I believe we’re all wired one way or another and we just have to work around it if our lives make it impossible for us to live […]

In the Blink of an Eye – Preparing for the Unexpected

Tweet

Yesterday started off as planned. Late in the day, I was faced with a very unexpected turn of events. As I quickly responded to a crisis, I wasn’t thinking of fodder for a new blog post. But, those of you who know me, know that nothing is ever wasted — the good stuff and […]

I Just Wanna Be Happy — NOT!

Tweet

Now, that title may look confusing. But I’ll tell you what I mean.

My sister and I were talking this afternoon and we were discussing the difference in happiness and joy. I’ve known the difference for quite some time now, but she’s much younger than me, so she’s just now coming into a thorough […]

BB’s and Glitter – What’s the Connection?

Tweet

I married Leon 20 years ago, and I became a step-mom to a 9 year-old boy and a 12 year-old girl. My own kids were older – one in college and one about to enter college. When this little 9 year-old boy came to visit, he came equipped with a BB gun and other […]

Just Say Yes!

Just Say Yes!

Nancy Reagan started the “Just Say No” campaign to help train young people to say no to drugs. That was a good idea, and I’m all for saying no to drugs. But have you ever noticed how quickly “No” rolls off the tongue of most people, especially parents? A lot […]

The Lost Art of Thanks

Tweet

Pure, unselfish acts of kindness are rare, but each occasion of graciousness extended toward us is cause for celebration. Sometimes it’s a lonely walk where we’re going and the farther we climb, the thinner the crowd. When someone decides to help us in whatever way – small or large – it deserves an […]
