What Are You Remembered For?

Remembered- Grief Coaching-Compass-Reset

I cannot remember the source but the message went something like this. Be it known and keep it in the back of your mind that someday, after your death and at your funeral services, your entire life will be summed up in about 20 minutes. What will that 20 minutes say about you? Was your […]

Underwear Not to Wear


Also known as Spanx but no thanks! Back by popular demand and just in time for all those little black party dresses. Spanx Underwear – what not to wear!“Get one” she said to me. “You’ll love it. I wear one every day.”She is referring to SPANX. I have a shirt that I love but hate […]

Do You Hear or Are You Listening?


When my kids were little and engaging in the act of justifying why they were “more” right than the other, I often told them, “I can hear what you are saying but I’m not listening!” That was their cue that their argument held little weight and I was tired of them repeating what they were […]
