Bending the Rules When It Matters

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditIf I followed all the rules that people attempted to set for me, I think my life would be different. It may not be better or worse, just different. Rules can create structure and direction, but for a creative person they can also confine the mind. It’s about striking a healthy balance and deciding when to follow them, bend them or make new ones. The late Katherine Hepburn said, “If you follow the rules you miss all the fun.”  I’ll drink to that! Looking back at my life, my regrets are not what I did, but what I didn’t do. And much […]

Don’t be Blindsided  Because You Lack Long-Term Vision

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditSometimes we’re so busy moving through life just getting the work done in front of us that we don’t see what lies ahead. Long-term vision is important to help you reach your life or career goals, but too often we’re wearing blinders. So, what happens? You can get blindsided. You wake up one day and realize time slipped away and you are further from where you hoped to be. Maybe you find your career has languished, or a relationship falters, or finances are stagnant. Whatever it is, you wonder, “can I ever get back on track?” Of course, you […]

Shine A Light- One Simple Step Can Brighten a Day

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditMake the Call. Take the Call. It matters. #fearlessfabulousyou Remember the song “Reach Out and Touch Somebody’s Hand.” It was the debut song for Diana Ross when she left The Supremes and struck out on her own. And it was a huge hit. Remember when  AT&T had a campaign called “Reach out and touch someone” in 1979? Now how many of us actually reach out and call anyone these days? Most people send text messages, post comments on social media or send emails. The days of picking up the phone or sending a handwritten note have gone the way of the typewriter. My […]

Fabulous Finds for Your Skin

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestReddit Yes, I Dew! I’m lucky. People send me interesting products to taste, sip, apply and try. Many don’t quite past muster, but when they do, I enjoy sharing them. Since I just wrote about thick skin, this one seemed kind of appropriate. I may have thick skin, but it’s also super sensitive when it comes to scrubs and other exfoliants. I want to keep my skin smooth, but most scrubs are just too abrasive! That’s why I like the Dew Puff Original Konjac Sponge -a 100% natural konjac root plant fiber sponge. Konjac root is known as “elephant yam” in Japanese. Just […]

Why Thick Skin Matters at Any Age

Share this…FacebookTwitterLinkedinemailYummlyDiggPinterestRedditThick Skin. Thin Body. Here’s my healthy top for the week: Maintain a thin body and thick skin. The former will help reduce your risk for several major illnesses including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and stroke, diabetes, back and hip problems and certain cancers (just to name a few examples). The latter will protect you against mental erosion and self- esteem sabotage. Thick skin will protect you against ageism, sexism and all sorts of discrimination you may face in life. It will keep you centered when doors slam in your face and you face a thousand “No’s” before finally hearing “Yes.” It […]
