It’s certainly easy to get bogged down emotionally and even entertain pity parties when things aren’t going the way we think they should.  In order…

Prepare for 2017 By Setting Direction with Intention

As this month of December and 2016 winds down, I’m gleaning and modifying some posts from previous months (sometimes previous years) to help me save some time and still post daily. Here’s another example.   The older I get, the more I discover I need to be structured and deliberate in my actions.

Happy July 31st! We’ve arrived at the end of July – can you believe it? So we did it – completed the rest of July with posts introducing Karl Moore’s 18 Rules of Happiness.  Remember, again, I’ve only shared small excerpts – his book (available in digital form at Amazon for only 99 cents!) has longer detailed entries for each “rule.” No affiliate links here, remember – just a good book I thought was worth sharing! I hope you think…
