Silence the Naysayers

You already know. Steve Jobs knew. Thomas Edison knew.  Henry Ford knew.   The Wright Brothers knew.  People mocked them, ridiculed them, and called them crazy, but deep down, they knew.  Their deep belief and knowingness muted the naysayers, and because they chose to follow their hearts, we have Apple iPhones, IPads & computers, electricity, cars, and airplanes.

Love Letters

Do you remember your first love letter? I do. It was to my 5th Grade boyfriend, Greg, which would have made it somewhere around 1993. I can remember wanting to make it perfect so that it conveyed my love for him. I spent hours on that letter, which looking back was only a few sentences and ended […]

Are you worrying about what everyone else is doing, thinking and saying or are you worried about what you think, say and do?  There is so much noise, especially with the rise in popularity of social media that […]

Wrap It Up and Rip In to It: a Birthday Process

Birthdays are interesting, they vary by culture, society, family tradition and personal meaning.  The pivotal birthdays always tend to mean more: entering double digits, becoming a teenager, legal permission to drive, drinking age, voting, 30, 40, 50, and 60.  Outside of the “special birthdays” it becomes a personal preference for what birthday holds a significant […]
