What If YOU Have a Power Outage? (Just Don’t Blame Beyonce…)

So, I'm guessing that most of you watched the Superbowl this past Sunday, even if just for the commercials and Beyonce's half-time show. What a game, right? And what a blackout! Did someone forget to pay the power bill at the Superdome? I guess it just shows that you never know when adversity is going to strike. At the Superbowl, at work, or in your own life. Adversity doesn't always call ahead... Like for the person who unexpectedly loses her job... Or for the daughter who, at only 12, loses her mother to cancer... Or for Dr. William … [Read more...]

Changing Course When You’re Scared of Change

Tell me, have you ever had something not go as planned? I'm guessing 'yes', unless you're Martha Stewart. Well, something like that happened to me this past week. (Something you'll better appreciate if you watched last week's video blog, Does your Self Image Need an Update: Part 1!) Now, I know I mentioned before that there was going to be a 'part two' to last week's 'part one'. And there was, except for one thing... It stunk. So, I basically realized that I needed to scrap the original 'part two' video and start over...in time for … [Read more...]

Does Your Self Image Need An Update? (Part 1)

Do you remember that annoying DIRECTV commercial that had Beyonce in it singing about an upgrade? Well, don't worry. This week's video blog - vlog - is not that.  Firstly, I can't sing. And, secondly, I have Comcast.  But I am talking about an upgrade of sorts. When we keep holding on to past limiting beliefs about ourselves, we don't operate at our fullest potential. Which means that we may not get everything we want in life, because we're still letting our old selves decide what we're capable of or what we're worthy of...or who we … [Read more...]

I’m Gonna Wash That Gray Right Outta My Hair…But Not My Flaws.

Do you remember that Clairol commercial, I'm Gonna Wash That Gray Right Outta My Hair? I know, I'm probably dating myself by asking.  But I was thinking about it for some reason and thinking to myself, we seem to feel that same way about our flaws. That we want to "wash them right out" of us. Because we feel like, if we do, if we're perfect, people will like us better. Even well-known newscasters feel like this, like one news anchor, who'll remain nameless, who had a rocky start when joining her network. "I felt like I needed to project total … [Read more...]

The REAL Question To Ask Yourself This New Year’s…

Happy, happy new year! Can you believe it's 2013 already? Pretty exciting, huh? It's like each year, we're given this whole new slate to try again. To 'dream a dream', as Fantine so beautifully sings in Les Miserables (the play). And, if you're like many people right now, you're probably asking yourself, as you think about the coming year, "What do I want to do, what do I want to achieve this year?" But, are you asking yourself the right question? What's that question, you ask? Check out my first solo video blog - vlog - below to find out! … [Read more...]

Put A Little Love In Your Heart This Holiday Season – And Get On The Love Train!

Happy Holidays! I hope this holiday season for you is filled with lots of love. For yourself and for others.

Love to remind us that even when horribly tragic things happen in the world, like as of late, there is still good. There is still … [Read more...]
