Understanding the life of a Butterfly………

In life, opinion, random thought on January 30, 2011 at 8:21 pm

Butterflies are beautiful creatures.  Besides their beauty, they go through 4 stages in their life called metamorphosis.  Metamorphosis means a drastic change  in form: a complete change in appearance.  Every change serves has a purpose.  Our lives can be compared to the life of a butterfly. Through every stage of our life, we experience new things, learn from them, gather knowledge and grow into the person that we ultimately want to be. So whatever stage you are in your life, change is constant and will always be a beautiful thing.


Laughter, laughter, laughter. Did I say Laughter?

In musings, opinion, random thought on January 9, 2011 at 12:30 pm

I have had an opportunity to read  ” Laughter For A Woman’s Soul – Revive Your Spirit with Women of Faith ” by New Life Clinics.  This is a wonderful book and I wanted to share an excerpt from Barbara Johnson:

Human beings thrive on laughter. Since most of us can’t afford vacations in Hawaii, we have to learn to make our own fun!  Humor is the chocolate chips in the ice cream of life.  Since it doesn’t come to your door looking for you, you have to go out and get it yourself.

Those high heels that we love so much….

In fashion, opinion on January 4, 2011 at 8:03 pm

Ladies, there is never such a thing as having to many shoes.  And for some reason, we are absolutely in love with high heels. It seems that the higher they are the better.  But when it comes to discomfort, we really need to pay attention.   Dr. Oz  examines and provides advice for the shoes we love. 

 ” Alternate your heel height. High heels place 26% more pressure on your knees and up to 76% more pressure on the balls of your feet. Wearing them everyday can stiffen the Achilles tendons and permanently damage the muscles in your legs and joints in your feet. By alternating heels with various heights, you can lessen those effects.”

For all it’s worth even though we love heels, take heed to those aches and pains.  As the old adage says: take care of your feet and they will take care of you.

Resolutions: The “It” List

In life, opinion, random thought on January 1, 2011 at 10:26 am

Here we go again, it is time for the most famous list of  the year:  The New Years Resolutions.   It is the most talked about list that starts off with optimum momentum and then slowly fades away.   In the process of promising what you are going to do, we often forget to insert the phrase, Simply Doing Me.   So for 2011, no more lists, simply just  do you!

A moment of your time………On the Couch

In life, musings, opinion, random thought on December 6, 2010 at 5:30 pm

There are times when you have to sit yourself down and reflect on the various moments in your life.  Yes I am having a couch

moment, which is something that I do quite often.  It is my own little me time that no one or nothing can interrupt.  It’s that time of the year again, the blissful end of an old year and the birth of a new one. When I look back on this year, it has truly been an exciting time.  But this year was really different, I actually learned a lot about myself , friends and accomplished 99.9% of the things that I set out to do.  I am so happy that I can say that.   Everyday that I wake, it an opportunity to step further into my purpose and I am excited about this journey.  I am still a work in progress, and that is definitely ok with me.  As I wrap up this moment on the couch, I hope you take the opportunity to sit on your couch.  Until next time, take care.

nOtE tO SelF: The meaning of time

In life, musings, opinion, random thought on October 20, 2010 at 4:15 pm


On my way to work today, I saw a sign that said ” Time has a way of showing us what really matters.”  That statement is so true when you think about it.  As young adults, we are so anxious to get out into the world. We tend to become caught up with things and people that only matter at the moment. Trying to be in the in crowd and be like the Jones’.

We only focused on what was just two feet ahead of us instead of looking further down the path.

As time passes, those things and people that we wrapped our ideals around don’t matter to us today. It is truly a testament of where you are today-knowing that you have grown as a person.  Having friends and family- those who genuinely care about you and your well-being are still around. These are the moments that truly matter.
