The Perfect Day

Two years ago when I began doing some visualization meditation, I started thinking long and hard about what it is that would qualify as the meat and potatoes of my “perfect day.” Now, don’t let me lose you on the visualization meditation part. I know you might still be on the fence about the hokey pokiness of that sort of... Read More

Buy Me A Drink!!

buy me a drink
In case you haven’t heard yet, I’m running a marathon! Somehow I drank the wrong Kool Aid;) But thankfully it is for an awesome for-purpose organization for whom I’m really proud to run. In order to raise the required $3,000 by November 2nd, though, I’m gonna need your help. That’s why I ask that you buy me a drink! Well... Read More

Leave It To A Maxipad Ad To Get Me All Misty-eyed #LikeAGirl

throw like a girl
I’ve been thinking about this whole, “throw like a girl” thing since all eyes were on Mo’ne Davis being badass last week pitching in the Little League World Series. I saw an interview where the newscaster asked Mo’ne why she didn’t play a sport more suitable for girls like soccer? Her response was great. And by great, I mean, she... Read More

I Can Do Anything Good!

This made my morning. Thank you, Catherine! Turns out I’m a little late in the game though. At over 14 million views, it appears she’s already made tons of people smile. The deleted scene is worth the view, too. She’s pretty frickin awesome. I leave you with this: Dance out your daily affirmations. Why not? I am right this very... Read More

Kids These Days

Please teach me how to fly ...
Tonight I gave my first speech for Toastmasters NYC, the speech and delivery club I joined about a month ago to not only improve my speaking skills but to network with other up and coming speakers. Mentally I wasn’t nervous at all, but I have to admit … physically I was all sorts of clammy and flustered. Of course, once... Read More
