• Don’t Let The World Change You

    Have any of you ever been in a great mood and then one person just acted really rudely to you and it changed your whole mood? Maybe someone honked at you because you didn’t hit the gas pedal the EXACT second the light turned green, or someone yelled at you because you weren’t walking fast enough for them. Or, maybe someone yelled at you because you were walking behind them and they didn’t like how close you were to them. That situation happened to me the other day.

  • 10 Simple and Easy Ways to Spread Kindness

    Today, I want to focus on something I find very important  – kindness. It’s so simple, yet so powerful.

    Wow, how is Christmas over already? Where in the world did the holiday weekend go? I feel like I blinked and it was over. Life just goes by too fast and I wish it would slow down.

  • A Thanksgiving Reminder

    This blog will be short. I wanted to write a quick post to all of my readers reminding them of something important. This Thanksgiving, when you’re enjoying the wonderful holiday with family and friends, take a moment to think of your friends, neighbors, family or coworkers. Is there someone you know who doesn’t have a place to go for Thanksgiving? Does your neighbor live alone, and you have a suspicion they may be celebrating the holiday alone? Stop by. Send them a note. Give them a call. Invite them. Not sure if someone has plans? Ask them anyway. Give thanks and spread love. Don’t forget about others this holiday season. Also,…
