I have this idea that I want to do things differently – always have. Kind of ironic, as in actual action I am generally an avid rule follower and almost always play by the rules. And see that I tend to get quite mired in habitual patterns (more on this in another post to come!) … Continue reading
I’ve been here before…
You know this feeling right? Not that deja vu feeling like you have had this EXACT same experience before as if in a dream…but rather that sinking feeling that instead of taking one step forward, you have taken two steps back! And are falling right back into old habits that you already know don’t serve … Continue reading
Facebook: Friend or Foe?!?!

It’s a marketing tool, a time suck, a connector, anti-social killer of personal connection, a means of stalking, a means of staying in touch, a means of sharing. . .a projection of stories, good, bad, … Continue reading

Often thought while standing in front of an open fridge and/or cabinets staring at varied contents and feeling completely blank about what to do with the contents (especially when your fridge is not quite stocked like this one!). Well fear not! I’m here to help you find a new perspective … Continue reading
