Have you ever said to someone ‘I will try’?
Of course you have. I have. We ALL have.
You KNOW why you say that, don’t you?
It’s because you more than likely will not do what you say.
It doesn’t make you (or me) a bad person…sometimes we say ‘I Will Try’ because we’re afraid to hurt someone’s feelings by saying….’no’.
However, you need to be careful what you DO say for your own mental health and overall success in life.Continue reading
“You are not my friend anymore.”
That was the message I received in my Facebook Inbox from someone I had known for 20 years. They then unfriended and blocked me.
You could probably guess by now this had ‘alot’ to do with our U.S. Presidential election.
So this prompted my video today.Continue reading

The nightmares of my senior year…
In my ‘dream’…I’m trying to find my high school locker. I eventually find it. Then, I cannot remember the combination. Then the school bell rings. I’m late for class…but then cannot find my classroom.

Because I really didn’t.Continue reading
Most people know the story of Bill Gates.
The founder of Microsoft became a multi-billionaire (cue Austin Powers) and one of the wealthiest men ever.

Why would he do this?Continue reading
There’s two sayings on the internet (because…y’know…there’s none of that online)…

‘All working from home did was get me smelly pajamas’
Ok. Second one not so much. But boy is it ever true.Continue reading
Never been a big camper.
I have done it…but it’s been quite a long time. Actually, my idea of camping is stocking up on some cheese and cabernet at a Ritz Carlton, then making a fort with the pillows and monogrammed robes.
(I usually have a partner when I do this…)
Hey…don’t knock it ’till you’ve tried it!
Now, apparently, it’s recommended you take Bearspray if you’re going to camp in the deep woods.Continue reading

Question: If you knew an endeavor you were undertaking would absolutely succeed, how likely would you be to quit?Continue reading
‘2016 is over…at last!’
‘It’s nearly 2017! Can we finally retire the current year….’?
‘Is 2016 the worst year in history?’
These three headlines took me less than a minute to find on Google and post them here.
Let me not waste any time by giving you MY take on this (especially #3):Continue reading
So, we had a pretty big U.S. Presidential election recently by all accounts…
…and a guy with hair that looks like a hairpiece that’s not a hairpiece (so we’re told) is about to become the next Grand Poobah.
And you know what?? I don’t really care.
I’m not here today to talk politics. But I know that you know that I’m gonna rant about something…right??Continue reading
