I can be a difference maker and so can you too!

Is today a self-ish or self-less day?
Today is Mother’s day; I am a mother, and I have a mother still here with me. I know that I am lucky for both of those facts since many people I know have experienced the death of their mother and quite a few people I know are struggling or have struggled with infertility. The... Read more »

Do you spend one on one time with your kids?
When I was a single parent to three young daughters, I craved time alone with each of them. I loved doing things all together and I still do, but it can be challenging.

How do you respond to rejection and disappointment?

How do you respond to rejection and disappointment?

Lately though, I have been getting hit with low viewership on my blog and with my e-books as well as rejections from literary agents for the third book I wrote.

A choice to BE? An interview for 2019
Each year, people make New Year’s Resolutions. Sometimes they succeed, but often they fail. Since a resolution is a firm decision to do or not to do something, I say no more resolutions.

Want to reflect on your 2018?
I attended an intuitive reading this weekend and binge-watched The Good Place. It seems lately that every show, book or event I attend have me reflecting on my life. Maybe it is also the age that I am, but I can’t escape the questions and the self-reflection. I have spoke about and even written many... Read more »

Be healthy in 2019
So many people have said that they don’t want to go to a doctor or have certain tests done because they might find something wrong, but isn’t the illness still there even if you don’t know it?

What is enriching to your soul? An Interview about giving
