The ego, the soul and the social stream

Social media. Love it, hate it, need it, avoid it — we are all on there for various personal, social and professional reasons. And yeah, it’s got its challenges.

Mom! Are you awake?

“Let’s talk about sleep, baby. Let’s talk about you and me. Let’s talk about all the good dreams and the good Z’s that we need. Let’s talk about sleep. Come On!” Please tell me that you read that to Salt N Pepper’s Lets ‘Talk about Sex’.  Even if you didn’t, PLEASE tell me that you did.   Seriously, let’s talk about this elusive thing called […]

Wing Walking at 10 Feet Tall

The 5 People Closest To You!

The 5 People Closest To You!

Part of my parenting was to teach and remind my children to carefully monitor the people they associate with on a regular basis.   Why?  The five people closest to us will impact our own success and happiness in life.  Just this week, even at my age, I had to make a conscious choice to choose who would hang out in my space.  Yes, it […]

Fix Her Crown

Fix Her Crown

When I ran across this image in my feed the other day, I shared it without hesitation. With all the negativity in the world, we need more focus on the positive, the lifting up, the heartfelt good. Later the next day, I found my self scrolling the #PermitPatty feed on Twitter, seeing all the nasty things being said about the white woman who called the […]
