Hold Up 2018

We are in the fourth quarter of 2017. Just like that the year is almost over. We are just a few days into the last quarter and I’ve received about 5 emails from various bloggers and entrepreneurs, discussing how this is the last quarter of 2017, so we need to be preparing for 2018. I … Continue reading Hold Up 2018

Just Say No

No. What is it about the word ‘no’ that makes people’s hearts drop a little? We don’t like the word ‘no’ and some of us have a hard time telling ourselves ‘no’. Why can’t I just eat that extra slice of chocolate cake although I’m working on eating healthier? Why can’t I buy that purse … Continue reading Just Say No

Chosen: You are Qualified

Ever felt unqualified? Like there's-just-no-way-I’ll-ever-be-selected-so-why-bother-even-trying unqualified? Why would the person who is short-tempered, impatient, unfriendly, blunt-borderline-brash with people be given the shot?

I was investing into everyone else's purpose but my own.  Why?

The Plan That Got Away

...creating list can get a little complicated when it comes to specific areas of our lives. Like "The Perfect Man" list. Women have 235 items on the list and if the guys they date don't come close to it then it's just not meant to be. When we make a list, typically there's a level of expectation, right?

Warning Signs

Why do we like to ignore warning signs? The speed limit says 45 mph and we drive 70 mph. The caution lights dance all around your date like fireflies and you STILL say yes to a second date. We justify ignoring the signs that have been...

Icebreaker from Hell

Trust. I once participated in the icebreaker from hell. We all had to break off into pairs and one person had to be blindfolded. As my luck had it, the Chosen Blindfolded Beauty Queen happened to be me. So I reluctantly allowed myself to be blindfolded and I held onto my partners arm for dear … Continue reading Icebreaker from Hell
