Today was one of those days. An absolutely glorious day. The clearest blue sky. There has been so much rain here recently. The sun hasn’t been shining. The temperatures have still been mostly high.  But, not today. It was also a day with no plans except a walk with a bestie. The day felt like…

TGIF!  I don’t know about you, but this week has seemed exceptionally long. On Tuesday night I thought surely it was Thursday night! Fortunately, not too many weeks feel like that for me, but this one has for whatever reason. However, it is Friday and that means the weekend! Which is forecasted to include days…

A couple of days ago I wrote about the little things and the song Dream Small, that some of our greatest moments are in the seemingly small consistent things we do every day. The ones that not many people will notice, or maybe are never even known. But, what about our big dreams? The thing…

When I was near the end of my MBA a few other commitments were coming to an end as well. I made a conscious decision as those things ended to say “no” to anything else for the rest of 2018. This would allow me some time to soak up some down time, to spend time…

A week ago I found something I thought I’d lost. Nothing super significant, more than anything just frustrated with myself I’d lost it.  When I found it you would have thought I found something really significant that was lost. In reality, it was just a little thing. But, it was found. Little things. They matter.…

A few weeks ago I was editing a document that included a sentence about asking for help.  The sentence said “I understand that asking for help is not a sign of weakness.” Somewhere over the years the idea of asking for help has become a weakness. I recommended changing that statement to “I understand that asking…

If you’ve read here since day one, or in previous years, it’s about this point in October that I start to think I don’t have anything else to write.  But, we are just a little past the half way point and I still have a few things on my list.  So, I’m going to keep…
