Just Go For It!
One of my friends is the epitome of someone who grabs life by the horns, takes chances and does not let things stand in the way of her happiness. She is independent, determined and happy! I admire this so much. She did the corporate thing for years and decided that she was no longer fulfilled with traditional hours, overtime with no pay and working more than anything else. So, she started her own consulting business. Many people do this, right? Absolutely. However, that was only the beginning. She also decided she wanted to...read more
All I thought I Knew about Dieting Was Wrong!

Live Your Life Unapologetically
There is so much pressure these days to be the best parent, be the model employee, eat healthy, look good etc.. Are all of these things feasible? How much does it matter? The answer is it only matters if it is important to you. You hear people talk about being perfectionists or striving to be perfect. The dictionary defines perfection as the “condition, state, or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or defects”. This is not realistic, we all have and will continue to have flaws, and that is ok. Living up to...read more
