Self-care, yo.

Today I received some really good news. Like, turn-the-corner good news. And in celebration, I went out and got a pedicure. Pedicure was not the only option in this kind of case. Celebrations can include all kinds of things. Foods. Drinks. Sweets. You get the drift. But right now, I'm working on my self from... Continue Reading →

Pop

It's the sound you never, ever want to hear. I was exercising at home, running with high knees, when, POP went my calf. It was audible, and hit me like a sucker punch in the gut. Joints go pop, knees go pop, muscles should certainly not go pop. But there I was, sitting on the... Continue Reading →

Fret

Fret: to worry, be anxious, feel uneasy, be distressed, be upset, a state of anxiety or worry Twenty-five days ago I left my full-time job. These past weeks have felt foreign in a way that seems both normal and absolutely surreal. When I worked a full (overfull, really) schedule, there was always that escapist part... Continue Reading →

Gifts I give myself

'Tis the season, people. As a woman-wife-mother-professional-friend in this world, there are many a moment where I feel like I need assistance. Whether that come in the form of a personal assistant, fairy godmother, chef, chauffeur, I'm pretty flexible. I will turn my nose up at no help that is offered in keeping this good...

Saturday morning

And once I'm there, it's nonstop. Email. Phone calls. Meetings. Instant Messages. Text Messages. Conference calls. GoToMeetings.... Continue Reading →

Here’s the deal

This goes out to anyone who's ever read my stuff on Facebook, who's enjoyed my wry humor, who likes to interact on this wide jungle gym we call social media. I write this, tongue firmly in cheek, because I have a┬áburning desire to lay groundwork in a completely irrelevant medium, to people who may or... Continue Reading →

Financial Health: Awareness

I know. I'm sorry. Finances are a part of reality, y'all. Today will be short, because it's Friday. (Today will also be without a picture, as I'm blogging on my phone with my Bluetooth keyboard, plugged into an electrical jack at a friend's house. Viva la technology! Viva la blogger!) Regardless of your leanings, we... Continue Reading →

Professional Health: Daily Planning

Want to improve your work life? Make a daily plan. (This is my secret sauce.) As I've said before, it's no secret that I'm a planner. I like goals, I like processes, I like lists. From a mental perspective, writing things down helps tremendously to clear my brain and maximize the usable space for tasks... Continue Reading →

Mental Health: Stay in Your Own Lane

Confession: I've always found it interesting to hear pastors talk about how they set out to preach a great sermon, and end up preaching primarily to themselves. I found it slightly dubious. No longer. I drafted the outline for this week's topics and found them just fine. And then I arrived at today's selected topic.... Continue Reading →
