It Ain’t That Serious

Last week, I came across an interview with Queen Latifah and she was asked what the best advice she ever received was. Her response (in much shorter order than she said it) was that early in her career when she was upset about something a member of her team (who is still with her) said…

I Do It…

(Insert Your First Name) do it! Remember wanting to feel independent and try new things when you were young? If you have kids and grandchildren, you’ve been blessed to watch them grow into (and through) this phase. Think about what that was like… The pure joy of discovery… of accomplishing things for the first time……

Super Sunday!!

There’s a lot we could talk about regarding the big game that was played last Sunday. Yes, I’m talking about the Super Bowl. There was Taylor and Travis… Usher and the halftime show… Reba singing the National Anthem… Brock and Patrick… Andy and Kyle… And so much more! How about the commercials? $7 million for…

Do It Anyway… AKA Just Do It!

I went to the gym this past Saturday just to do cardio. Not because I wanted to necessarily. I’m not a fan of cardio. I’d rather lift weights – but I’d already lifted 4 days last week, so it was an off day from weights. I didn’t really want to go. And I could have…

It’s Called Self-Esteem… Nicey Nash, Part 2

Last week, I shared part of Niecy Nash’s acceptance speech from the Emmy awards show. She talked about being a winner and she thanked herself. It was powerful! If you haven’t listened to it, I suggest you do – it will be worth the one minute and fourteen seconds of your time. What was just…

Stop Waiting For The Storm To Pass

I love quotes… I saw one the other day that I saved and haven’t stopped thinking about. It said… “Life isn’t about waiting for the Storm to Pass… It’s about learning to Dance in the Rain!” How many times have you found yourself waiting for something before you take the next step? We’ve all done…

Keep A-Goin’!

I was talking to a friend of mine this morning and she told me about a poem her mom used to recite to her. It was called “Keep A-Goin’!” by Frank Lebby Stanton (1857-1927). When she read it to me, I immediately knew it was the topic for this week. Does it seem like a…

Eight And A Half Years! WOW!!

She was mad and frustrated. She sat in the very back of the room for the entire 3-day event… with her arms crossed and with her eyebrows furrowed in anger and disbelief. She said, “If you can help me make $5,000 a month and get out of debt, I want you to be my coach.”…

Winding Down 2023

There are just a few days left in the year and I hope you’re not slaving over work, stressing to get those last few things done. And I hope you aren’t spending hours planning for 2024… if you’re doing that now, you’re probably already behind where you wanted to be for the new year. Many…
