The Best Energy Boost In The World!

I was unbelievably tired after returning home late last night from my four day trip to Palm Springs for back to back meetings on philanthropic giving and staying up until 4am writing my blog and attempting to take an initial stab at reading the mounds of emails I missed while I was away. That’s when

You’ll never get the same moment twice

“Life becomes more meaningful when you realize the simple fact that you’ll never get the same moment twice.” When my daughter-in-law came to drop off my adorable grandbaby this morning so I could babysit him for her while she went to work and I saw her lugging in the car seat and diaper back and

DANCING WITH YOURSELF – If you’re not, here’s why you should be!

Given the title of today’s tweet I would be remiss if I didn’t start this blog off with a quick shout out to the great Billy Idol (a musical genius from the 80’s for those who don’t know who that is…but really, shame on you if you don’t know…) for his fantastic song Dancing With

Realizing the Value of Time

“Lose an hour in the morning and you will spend all day looking for it.” -Richard Whatley SO TRUE! And today I’m guessing that is exactly how a lot of us felt. I know I did! It started when I woke up this morning and discovered I had completely FORGOTTEN it was going to be

Coming to a fork at the end of one road

Life has been really crazy lately but what’s crazy is that its not for any of the reasons I would have expected this time of year. I thought I would be spending the last few weeks doing Christmas shopping and preparing for the holidays and trying to wrap things up at work so I can

We can be All In or We Can Get Out

Sunday night I had to fly down to Los Angeles for some business I needed to be here to handle for the first part of the week. When I arrived in LAX it was after 10pm and I was exhausted and all I wanted was to get to the hotel and get to sleep. When

RETWEET – The Breakfast of Champions (by Ashley)

Since my daughter Ashley has gotten home from her mission she constantly says the word “Retweet” whenever we say anything she agrees with. So today, in honor of her, I thought I would “Retweet” a blog she wrote for me back when she was only 17 years old. It was such a great blog that

Remember what it feels like to just breathe

The last several weeks have been such a whirlwind for me. I was running around like crazy trying to prepare everything for my daughter to get home, and then there was all the emotion that surrounded her actually getting home, followed by hosting a huge open house event for everyone to welcome her back. I

Brain Fry, Headaches, and Exhausted Guardian Angels

“I have a theory about the human mind. A brain is a lot like a computer. It will only take so many facts, and then it will go on overload and blow up.”  – Erma Bombeck Do you ever come to the end of an exceptionally long day and feel like your head is going

The Magical Cure for a Case of Brain Fry

You’ve all heard of Brain Freeze I’m sure, when you drink something really cold too fast and you literally feel like your front section of your brain and the bridge of nose is instantly freezing and you are absolutely certain you about to face death at any moment….Well today I want to talk about a

One of the greatest things about being an adult…

 “One of the greatest things about being an adult is the feeling of euphoria when you get to change into pajamas.”   SO TRUE!!!!  Today was possibly one of the longest days I have had in a very, very long time. It actually started just after midnight last night when I found myself still awake, working

I am Woman, I am Invincible, I am TIRED…

Some days you just need a good nap!!! As amazing as this holiday time of year can be, it is without a doubt exhausting too! There are parties to attend several nights a week, presents to buy, decorating to do, cards to write, wrapping to be done, goodies to bake…there is a never ending list

Passion Comes From Having a Purpose

Today I want to talk to you about passion. I am not talking about passion in the romantic sense; I am talking about passion in the “I am so excited to get up this morning and conquer the world today” kind of passion. There are very few things more powerful than a person who is
