As a child, I watched Sesame Street. Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, Cookie Monster, The Count, Snufflelupagss, and Oscar the Grouch were featured daily. Naturally, I outgrew Sesame Street. Years later, when my son was born, Elmo was all the rage. How did one muppet take over the entire universe? I thought that when we […]
Setbacks, roadblocks, obstacles are bound to appear. I don’t desire them or call for them, but I realize that I need to prepare for their arrival. A setback for me has grown into a time to check in with my emotions. It is important to check into the present snd not allow my mind to […]
Software updates occur regularly. Most of the times, they are uneventful, you press a button, close some applications and then you close down the applications, open them back up, and all is well.

Perhaps you have heard the term “ Don’t take things personally.” Why? Has anyone ever considered why we give that advice? In fact, who really follows it? When someone calls you a name, you take it personally; when someone tells you your work is bad, I take it personally. I take things personally when the […]
Stop fighting with people on Social Media. Really stop it. Unless it helps you, and unless it helps other people, or if it delivers a living wage.
