MORE Change… The Only Constant in Life

Uncategorized No Comments

I’m realizing more and more that the only thing constant in life is change. And I think that’s a good thing! People have their opinions about employment and how long you should keep a job… It’s funny because I think some of that perspective comes from “the olden days” and perhaps some of it also … Read More

A New Era of “The Hunt”

Uncategorized No Comments

I could be considered a professional job hunter. After a little more than seven months into my first job out of college I was laid-off. The company had staffed-up because they had two huge contracts they were guaranteed… Or so they thought. It was an early life lesson and one I would become intimately familiar … Read More

The Power of Moving You

Uncategorized 1 Comment

Written 7/30/11 This weekend kicked off last night with what was to be a jam-packed schedule. I was sort of regretting planning so much, but at the same time knowing I wanted to do it all to see all the people I wanted to see. Going to Yoga in the park (for charity) this morning … Read More

Long Time No Blog

Wow, the months have really gotten away from me! I have written a couple of times, but they either weren’t suited to post or I didn’t have a chance to post for a while and then what I wrote seemed too stale-the moment had passed. Interesting that my last posted blog talked about me getting … Read More

Becoming a Writer… Again

After all, I … Read More

Big Shoes to Fill

Uncategorized No Comments

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to become a Big Sister through the Big Brother/Big Sister program! I put it on my bucket list as something I’d like to do before I turn 40 and time is waning… I think that is really the theme of my bucket list – if not … Read More

New Year… New Beginnings

Uncategorized No Comments

16 days into the new year… How are you feeling about it so far? A friend of mine posed that question as her status earlier today and I found all of the comments to be very interesting. While it is “just another day”, it’s nice to feel like you have that opportunity to start anew. … Read More

The Best Gifts Aren’t the Shiny Ones

Uncategorized 1 Comment

Now, I love a good shiny gift, don’t get me wrong. Like the perfect silver chain with a heart charm that my friend Carol gave me… Or the beautiful silver pearl charm, with a little dangly diamond on it that my sister Maureen gave me! But sometimes it’s the ones you just have to dust … Read More
