Kindness Is A Passport…

I Laughed So Hard…

Women’s Health Week was May 14th to May 20th and it got me thinking about this time last year. I always schedule my annual physical with my primary physician during May. I had a list of symptoms I was definitely uncomfortable discussing with him but I knew it had to be done.

 

More than 65 million people have incontinence and it is three times more prevalent in women. If it’s so common why do we not talk about it with each other or more importantly why are we uncomfortable talking about it with our doctors?

Kindness is Sending a Bowl of Berries…

Kindness

 

Those that know me best know that I’ve been preaching kindness pretty much since I started talking. It is a new year and a good time for all of us to do a little soul searching and a lot of kindness generating. The ugliness I have seen over the past six-months has been overwhelming. We all need to take a good long look in the mirror and decide if we like who we see looking back at us. Are we telling little girls who to be or are we showing them by example?

Some psychologists believe that ‘being nice’ isn’t really so nice after all. They believe being nice actually comes from a fear.

Share A Story and a Cup…

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of The Folger Coffee Company. The opinions and text are all mine. folgers-share-a-cup

With Veterans Day approaching I am reminded of how appreciative I am to the veterans in my own life and to all of our nation’s veterans.

When I think about them and what they have sacrificed for all of us I want to do so much more than say thank you.

Making Memories Doesn’t Have To Be Expensive…

They say God’s compensation to us for getting older is grandchildren and I have to agree. I am blessed to have 13 ranging in age from 22-6. For my husband and me life has become about making meaningful memories with them and all of our loved ones.

Coming up with ideas is a lot of fun for us but making those memories can be expensive. We’ve had to get creative. One of my favorite sources for coming up with fun family activity ideas is GROUPON. Not only is there always an extensive list of things to do locally there are also travel ideas, restaurant suggestions and they offer some of the best, real savings I’ve seen.

Trying to get the lyrics right…

Trying to Figure Out The Words to a Song?

Don’t you hate it when you listen to a song for a number of times,  but still having a hard time figuring out the lyrics, and asking yourself if it’s an alien language that you need to decipher? Or, you know what is even worse? When someone is getting the lyrics wrong and they don’t believe you when you try to correct them. Maybe there could be an app for that?

That would be great. But I have bad news. There was a study comparing how well two professional transcriptionists would compete against, the top of the line in voice transcription computer, the IBM Watson. Also known as “the smartest machine on Earth.” Their mission; accurately record four songs that were from country Taylor Swift singing “I Knew You Were Trouble,” Rock with Van Halen jamming “Runnin With the Devil,” a classic Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer,” and back to country with Brad Paisley’s “Ticks.”

How Healthy Is The Financial Path You Are On…

More than anything I wanted to leave my safe and steady full time job for the glamour of owning, my own business and writing full time. When I did just that last April I quickly realized it would be awhile before I would once again have a safe and secure feeling regarding my finances and the glamour moments are few and far between.

Writing is hard

I thought it would be a good idea to make an appointment with a financial planner. Being a midlife woman I knew I needed to up my retirement savings and at the same time I needed to know what debt I needed to pay down.
