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

Pulling Up Weeds

I live in California where water is at a premium so when I decided to landscape our front yard a few years ago, I designed it with about forty percent rock, and sixty percent grass.  I was really happy with how it turned out.  I’ve since learned that the landscaper I hired did not put… Continue reading Pulling Up Weeds

Fresh Season, Fresh Habits

Did you know that 40% of our daily activities are simply habits? We're on autopilot almost half of our time! So the obvious question is, "Do I have good habits or bad habits?" Now honestly most of us have a combination of both so don't start beating yourself up over your bad habits so quickly.… Continue reading 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

Is “I’m Fine” Authentic?

Have you seen the commercial about atopic dermatitis?  In it, a lady is constantly covering her skin, even when it’s warm out, and cancelling plans, while saying, “Yeah it’s my eczema again, but It’s fine.”  I think just about anyone with a chronic illness can relate to this commercial.  And we all know she’s not… Continue reading Is “I’m Fine” Authentic?

My Crappy Situation

I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell….and it’s making me crazy. I am all about wellness and self-care.  Herbal teas and supplements, acupuncture, meditation, rituals and routines, candles,  you name it.  However, all the “wellness” in the world is not helping me become well.  Which obviously has left me frustrated (and exhausted).  In this… Continue reading My Crappy Situation

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….
