Is marriage supposed to be forever?

I’ve been extremely busy lately servicing my consulting and freelance clients and little-by-little, working on building my fitness start-up company. Interwoven into that has been settling in with my fiance’ after moving in together earlier this year, working on finishing my MBA, and wedding planning. In the midst of everything, my fiance’ received the unexpected news of a […]

When you’re not Christian enough in their eyes.

Religion. It’s an amazingly powerful word, full of emotion. Wars have been fought and won over it. Relationships have ended and started because of it. People’s lives have been turned around as a result of it. My faith, lack of faith and every step of the way in between has been an evolutionary process full […]

2014 begins with the end in mind.

Eat less sugar. Buy a house. Stop cussing. Get in bikini bod shape. Complete a marathon. These are few of the New Year’s resolutions I’ve made in years past. I actually completely stopped making resolutions entirely because I felt they weren’t genuine and like most others’ resolutions, are very shortly lived. It wasn’t until I […]

So a job, a career and a calling are sitting at a table.

So here I am, sitting in my twelfth interview in the past four months, at a small but beautifully designed agency. I’m chatting with a young-ish owner about the various businesses he’s got his hands in, in addition to the one I’m interviewing for. Our conversation feels more like two people chatting over drinks than […]

What should be right for one, isn’t always right for another

Life is filled with shoulds. You should do this. You should be doing that. It feels like they are the most active in the thirties years of life. This is a time when many lives shift from an immature, present focused mindset of achieving and having fun, centered around the self to a more mature, […]

Little miss busy’s 10 tools to manage life better

People almost automatically respond “I’m so busy but doing good!” when asked how things are going. I’m definitely guilty of it myself. Ironically, I actually mean it when I say it. I must be a secret masochist because I tend to  pile more on top of an already busy schedule.  I can’t pass up fun/exciting/engaging/great/challenging opportunities for the life […]

What does friendship look like in your thirties?

For many people, their friends are like family members. Beloved and cherished friendships that bring grounding, strength, love, faith, hope, happiness and excitement to our lives. Friends can be made in so many different ways. From school, work or while waiting for a flight even. Through romantic relationships and friends of friends. Living in different […]

20 things I know now that I didn’t know in my twenties.

I was recently reading an article by the CEO of Docstoc on Forbes about “20 Things 20-year-olds Don’t Get” and it got me thinking about my experiences and wisdom. In experience, comes wisdom. So I asked myself, “What do I know now in my thirties that I didn’t know in my twenties?” The Sex & […]

Life’s sense of humor…part 1.

Have you ever noticed how there sometimes seems to be a running theme during certain periods of your life? For me, things seem to happen in 3’s like a cascading thump to the head, as if to say, “Just in case you weren’t aware of this…pay attention!” My running theme the past couple weeks has […]

You know you’re thirty when____.

I’ve been paying attention to my language and action a lot lately. Why? To see if I’m exhibiting signs of my age. Sadly, I noticed a change beginning when I was 29. My daily priorities were changing. My crazy nights out were being swapped for early bed times and rested mornings. The filters by which […]
