Take it from me, a person who thought life only had one path, it doesn’t. Life is a journey in discovery of yourself! Enjoy it, nurture it, feed it, live it!!!! Consider this the little voice in your head saying “GET YOUR ASS OFF THE FENCE”and go for it!
But on a serious note, I’ve just come off a crazy winter. The economy and the Canadian dollar have not been our friends = stress. I started a Blog, wrote a whole book, gave seminars and conferences and headlined the National Women’s Show, sat on the board of my son’s school, volunteered my time to mentor people starting businesses, broke up 15,000 physical fights between my boys, and I am exhausted. I need this sleep in more than you can imagine. So, recently, after much chit chat, the girls that I usually go on a yearly trip with, decided the time was now. So we booked our 3 day getaway last month. Yes, in a couple of weeks, 4 mommas craving a little “me” time will jet off to NYC, The Gansevoort Hotel, Rock of Ages, dinners, coffee at Bryant Park (my favorite NY park), SLEEP INS, mud masks, shopping, and great girls fun. I am counting down the days.
May 14th Is Bloggers Without Makeup Day: It’s All Off, Baby!!
Some people choose their path early in life and place one unfaltering foot in front of the other along it. Happy with what they have, their lives move along without any major upsets; they are content. I am not one of those people. Twelve moves in fifteen years is all the proof I need offer. And no, we’re not on the lam, I checked.
In life there are always undesirable things, so in order to feel better you just need to look at life from another direction. I hope this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone and that everyone will appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful day. Faith is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of life. A small request: All you are asked to do is keep this story circulating.
Are you the breadwinner in your relationship? Are you making more money than your husband? Are you frustrated and resentful or are you proud and grateful? Could you be with a man if you were the one working and bringing home the bacon, and he was the one organizing playdates and park excursions? I’ve wanted to do a Blog post on this topic for some time… we call these women Alpha Wives, or Breadwinning Wives. And they exist by the numbers today.
Happy Monday, Ladies! I hope you all enjoyed your Mother’s Day. I had a wonderful weekend with my family. Yes, I even DANCED Saturday night! If you’re a reader of this Blog, you’ll know that I’ve written a post on aging gracefully. I pointed out the simple fact, that no matter how rich, how poor, how thin, how happy, how unhappy you are, there is one thing in this world you cannot fight, and just happen to be battling at the EXACT same rate as the next person… AGING. Madonna is 50. Yes, Even Madonna turned 50! Enough said. But in that Blog post, I talked about my desire to age without any help from Dr. 90210. I spoke of how to age “gracefully.” But, today, we’re taking matters into our own hands. Today, we’re talking putting that aging process on slow-mo. And I’m not on the fence here. I just turned 35 and because I don’t wanna go the plastic route, I’m gonna fight the shit out of this aging process. I’m gonna be good to me.

You have been my best friend for the past 35 years. In fact, I will show you now for the first time, in honor of Mother’s Day, my tribute to you and dad in my upcoming book.
