I want the kind of passion I see in my husband when he is doing something new in programming. He is excited. He wants to "work". I am still looking for my passion. I am interested in doing a little bit of this and trying a little bit of that but I don't know what I am really passionate about. What can I do well enough that I wouldn't consider work?
I used to think that I needed to get an education and the jobs will be there. Needless to say my education did not bring jobs to me on a…Continue
I recently had the good fortune to read The Art of Non-Conformity by Chris Guillebeau. Although the book was originally released in 2010, it's a dramatic eye-opener towards the way we view life, work and live. The Art of Non-Conformity is easily one of my favorite reads this year. This is a book that will challenge you to literally think "outside the box."

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. When I was young, it was one of the few times
each year that I was able to see much of my extended family and partake in some
wonderful stories, games, and fellowship. Now that I’m older it is harder to get everyone together for this
special day, ...
The tradition of the Thanksgiving Quotes and Toast exists in many forms in homes across the world. It is often as simple as a lone traveler thinking few quiet thoughts over a meal at a truck-stop. Sometimes, it coalesces from the hearts of soldiers, sailors, and airman who share a meal on foreign soils (god bless and thank you). Other times it takes on…Continue

The pilot announced we had reached our cruising altitude of 31,000 feet. I sat looking out the window at the neatly framed parcels of lands, rivers, lakes, forests, and highways that lay below. As I continued to gaze upon all its beauty it suddenly occurred to me I was looking at things that were 31,000 feet away. Wow, I can see for 31,000 feet!
On the ground I cannot see for 31,000 feet. There is too much stuff in the way. Stuff, we love it don’t we? We gather stuff until our vision…Continue

Knowing how to negotiate is a key part of successfully executing strategy in pretty much every aspect of your life. The truth is that resources are limited. With limited resources, you’ll find that if you give out more than you take in, you’ll end up with less than when you started. In relationships, business, career, salary,…Continue

This year Theresa and I celebrated our 21st anniversary in style. We started the day with a doctor's appointment for Isaac and Matthew, a tandem visit to the eye doctor, with Sarah Anne tagging along for the ride. Our romantic stop was to Sandy's Donuts, a West side favorite, to pick up a few of our favorite fried cakes. Sandy's has been a special treat…Continue
As I mentioned in my post about Chicken Valdostana, the class also made Panzanella that evening. This is a Tuscan Bread Salad. I had never thought of a salad without lettuce. Chef Tim…Continue

Several days ago, I wrote a blog about the apparent political choices inducing a negative outcome between government, employers and employees. The day after the election some companies began to introduce massive layoffs and/ or the reduction of full-time jobs with benefits. I failed to cover some obvious positive possibilities during that blog due to time constraints. So let's talk about the upside to another seemingly down-economy.…Continue

The week leading up to Thanksgiving presents us with such a grand occasion to look back and reflect on all the things we are grateful for. Reflection is good. It allows us the opportunity to dissect what we accomplished all year and maybe ponder on some things that we could have done differently. It should also give us a “live” comparison of where we need to go as we move forward into a new year. But the problem with some reflection is that sometimes we remain stuck there in the…Continue

I'm Thankful For...
As we get close to the end of the year it is a perfect time to reflect back on what you are thankful for in your marriage.
It's not about sharing this with your friends, but about sitting down with your spouse and tell

In today's media world, it is very easy to be someone else - but what the world really needs is the genuine you!
This morning as I was searching for a topic, I came across Valeria Lukyanova - a Ukrainian gal with a quest to look (and apparently act) just like Mattel's Barbie Doll.…Continue
Spam is something we are all familiar with as we check our email or scroll through the web. It's annoying, noisy and begs us for attention. The message is optimized to separate us for a brief moment from our agenda to focus on something entirely different and convince us of the significance of "the sell."

Thanksgiving is a time to remember the blessings we enjoy and thank the Giver of every good and perfect gift. This annual practice of giving thanks should also be a personal way of life. Thankfulness paves the road to a happy and contented heart.
Thankful people are happy people. They energize us. Grumblers focus on their perceived lack and bad luck. Their negative energy is draining. No wonder they feel so…Continue
After my Thursday morning Pilates Ball class at a local church, my friend and I often stand outside the locker room and catch up.
I wanted to find a unique way of building more relationships with the other ladies who attended my class. I shared my idea with my friend about leading a study. She suggested the study,…Continue
