So…I sometimes have a problem with showing up. They say “showing up is half the battle” but really…I’m not interested in battles…I’m interested in feeling fulfilled and happy and passionate about the things I’m doing. Lately, if I don’t feel those things, I’d rather just skip it. I’ve been struggling professionally. I’m not where I … More Showing. Up.

This weekend’s highlight (lowlight) came around 12:30am Monday morning when I stepped in dog poop with bare feet and in jammies as I pushed the shop-vac back in the house from the driveway where I’d emptied it of water for the eighth time as we fought the storm that was beating down on our city. … More Deliberately. Transformational.
Show of hands…for those of you who know me…how many times have I called you with the BEST. IDEA. EVER? Five times? Ten? Fifty? You can leave your answers in the comments section. Furthermore, maybe they weren’t ALL genius, but some of them held real weight. Right? Ahhh…good ideas. I have tons of them. Business … More Best. Idea. Ever.
I worked all weekend…so this is three days of post in one… Several weeks ago, my girlfriend Pea was headed towards her car in her driveway when she ran into a neighbor. After chatting for a few minutes Pea told her she had to get going. She explained that she was on her way to … More Who. Do. You. Think. You. Are.
My husband first told me he loved me when we were on our first vacation together. He had a business trip to California scheduled, I had miles at my disposal, and we were in the first few months of dating. I used my miles to take a mini-vacation with my new boyfriend. He used to … More Is. This. For. Real.
