Celebrating Financial Growth

Today I bought new lipstick and mascara at Sephora. As we were in line to check out I told my daughter this story: Once upon a time, in my early 20s my best friend and I were in Macy's and just for fun we went up to the Benefit Cosmetics counter and got makeovers. The… Continue reading Celebrating Financial Growth

Celebrating the Budget

I would love to give you a gym update but my schedule has been a little wonky this week and I wasn't able to stick to the gym schedule I planned. In true perfectionist fashion, I just scrapped the idea of going because it wasn't going to work out how I have in my head. … Continue reading Celebrating the Budget

Celebrating 42!

  My birthday was two days ago. As, I'm sure it is with most people, this annual event has lead me to some introspection. To be honest I'm a little bit frustrated that I'm repeating some struggles I thought I had already dealt with. Let me explain. From 2007 until May 2010, I was going… Continue reading Celebrating 42!

Fresh Season, Fresh Habits

Information Overload!

I wholeheartedly believe in the Law of Attraction.  What you focus on increases.  Also, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.  But holy cannoli, I think my Lenten promise to get out of my comfort zone and break free of my limiting beliefs has opened a floodgate!  Teachers that I’ve admired and observed… Continue reading Information Overload!

Celebrating Lent

Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent.  Traditionally, Catholics “give up something for Lent.”  The practice is meant to bring one closer to God in two ways: first to separate oneself from worldly pleasures or crutches and second to experience some of the suffering Jesus endured for our sins.  The most common things… Continue reading Celebrating Lent

Three Reasons Why You’ve Already Blown Your New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year! Yup, I know, we’re three weeks in.  However, my eight to five is in the wonderful world of accounting and I’ve spent the last three weeks closing out the books on 2017.  I offer that as an explanation for my absence over those few weeks.  While everyone else is all “New year,… Continue reading Three Reasons Why You’ve Already Blown Your New Year’s Resolutions

Out With the Old…Year, Attitude, Whatever….

Two days post-Christmas and I’ve moved past sadness into acceptance.  Am I really going through the stages of grief over Christmas’s past?  Why yes, it appears I am.  So what does acceptance look like?  I guess it looks like an almost maniacal obsession with the new year and Spring.  Luckily, I’m at my desk, working… Continue reading Out With the Old…Year, Attitude, Whatever….

As Sugar-Fest 2017 Comes to a Close…

If you read way back in my archives, you’ll learn the story of the time I started running and cut out most carbs, resulting in a 35 pound weight loss.  You’ll also learn the story where I developed a condition called pseudotumor cerebri.  One of the medications I was put on for that killed my… Continue reading As Sugar-Fest 2017 Comes to a Close…
