So I was thinking after I posted my last blog on the baseball analogy, about how in life we never really strike out… I didn’t mention the TEAM. Those who support you. Those whom you support. Your Tribe. But there’s more to your team than those that readily come to mind. Your team consists of those who don’t even know they support you, and those you have no idea you… Read More »Fear and Who’s on First?
What if you don’t?? What if you swing and miss and swing and miss and swing and WHAM… Grand Slam??? The first 2 swings can look like failure to the untrained eye, and many would give up then. But to those who know better…they might look like great lessons learned on ways NOT to do it. So, step up to the plate. Taking from Wayne Gretzky’s famous quote – you… Read More »What if I Fail?

What’s this I hear about JUDGMENT?…I believe “judgment” gets a bad rap. People say, “Don’t judge.” When in reality, we do it all day long!! So, I say, Judgment Smudgment!! I know, blasphemy…right? But to me, judgment is not that big of a deal since it’s natural to do it all of the time (which brand is better, which route is faster, and which blogs are worthy of our time… Read More »Judgment Smudgment!!
That used to be an expression we used which now holds a slightly different meaning. I remember a lovely woman who attended my vision board workshop and she wrote to thank me after the retreat. Here’s a line from her email: “You provided a safe place for women to remove our masks…” That humbled and moved me to the center of my being. Today, we wear a physical mask due… Read More »Behind the Mask…The Eyes Have It

Here’s my take on FAKE: I don’t give a rip if everything on a person is FAKE! I’m talking from fake lashes, nails, breasts, hair, eyebrows, teeth, butt (yep, you can do that), or if you color your hair… Read More »My Take on Fake

Turns out there is, according to WikiDiff: As adjectives, the difference between false and fake is that false is untrue, not factual, factually incorrect…while fake is not real, fraudulent. Nothing my brain conjured up about “false” felt fun or funny. As a matter of fact, as… Read More »Is False Thinking Building a Nest in Your Brain?
I just had to laugh as I’m brushing my teeth and watch yet another eyelash fall out. As the black, spider-like silk lash hits the white porcelain sink, I think I can actually hear God laughing at all the plans I made for launching my business in early spring…and it’s deafening. Funny. Kinda-sorta. Some parts, not at all. As I said before… Dear 2020, None of this sh!t was on… Read More »Gettin’ Real With Fake Eyelashes
More than one teacher and a principal informed her in no uncertain terms she would not amount to much.
