Tiger Woods and His Woodies

It's everywhere. It's all over the news. It was on Larry King last night. And I'm on the bandwagon with the rest of the world. I'm fascinated. I can't turn away. My love for Tiger Woods started many years ago. I've been a golfer for 15 years. Yes, it's pathetic that after all these years, I can't call myself a…

By Guest Blogger, Tamara Arbeiter I was recently laid off from my job. The Record of Employment I just received in the mail stated “Economic reasons” for my departure.  As company policy goes, I was asked to leave immediately.  Comforted only by the fact that a handful of very senior executives were also laid off that day, I packed up…

Keeping The Balls Juggling In The Air

I had lunch with a close friend yesterday, and we were doing our usual lunch and chat, and chat, and chat. I love her, cuz she's my no bullshit friend. We cut right to the chase. No small talk.

Getting Yourself Out Of A Funky Rut

I'll never forget how I soaked up, How Stella Got Her Groove Back. I saw the movie with a girlfriend in theaters when it first came out, and for us, it was two hours of bliss.

The last six years have been a struggle coming to terms with my decision to give up a painting career that I loved dearly, to stay home and raise my children.  And as I…

Living An Authentic Life

When deciding what to title today's Blog post, I changed my mind about six times. "'Living An Authentic Life' sounded too Oprah," I thought. But, truly, it's what felt best. So, the pardon the title if it feels too familiar. :) So how do we live an authentic life? How do we live a life just and true? I figure…

What Women Want

Let's start with Sarah Palin: wife, mother, governor, on the campaign trail for Vice President... Moose Lover! As a society, we were fascinated by her. She was the brunt of many Saturday Night Live jokes. Her story was splashed all over magazine covers as well as the six o'clock news. Not only had she achieved tremendous professional success, she obviously…

Help, I’m Totally Frazzled!

I would like today's Blog to address a comment a friend of mine made to me the other day. It went something like this: "Erica, I have to tell you, I'm losing my patience.  I'm yelling at my kids a lot lately.  I can't remember the last time I sat on the floor with them to do a puzzle. I'm…

Eating Healthy With A Busy Schedule

So we're all busy right? Running to and from places. To Starbucks, to the office, to visit an elderly grandparent, to the gym, to an extra-curricular activity, a meeting. Running running running. And yet, I always roll my eyes at those skinny girls who say, "I just don't have time to eat!" Yah, WHATEVER! Rome could be burning, and there I…
