Eye of the Beholder

There is a Twilight Zone episode called “Eye of the Beholder.”  Have you seen it?  If you haven’t, I recommend you go watch.  I know it is currently available on Netflix and is only about 30 minutes long.  Spoilers will be happening in a moment.  The show is from the 1960’s but I don’t want...

A Few of My Favorite Things

Write an article with bullet points and I am much more likely to read it.  Tell me it is the “top ten,” and I may click on it before I know what the list is for.  Okay, so maybe I’m not quite that impulsive, but I have loved top ten lists dating back to David...

A Vision for the Year

Vision Boards are all the buzz these days.  Last year, I even heard of people having Vision Board parties, which I think is really pretty cool.  I started making Vision Boards about five years ago.  I wrote about it previously, as it is something that really resonates with me personally.  My personal Vision Boards have...

Word of Intention

I am not sure if this was a fad that died out or if it is still going.  Choosing a word for the year to be your intention.  I am a person who really enjoys words.  I think some of my clients may get frustrated because I want to choose just the right word in...

Thus Far…

Just this past September, I revisited writing regularly in this blog.  If you have been following along with me, you may have made a list of 25 Words to describe yourself.  After that, you might have developed a self-care plan by making a list of ways to take care of yourself, then organizing this list....
