Figuring out who I am

Mission Possible

      No Comments on Mission Possible

We’ve all seen corporate mission statements.   Tesla’s is “to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy”.  Google’s is “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”. Did you know that individuals can have mission statements too?  This was a foreign concept to me until I went through my company’s leadership training program.  Full disclosure- when this… Read more »

If you are reading this you know I’m a huge Miami Dolphins fan.  If you didn’t know it before you knew it because you read my rant about my fellow fans I posted a couple months ago As you may or may not know, the last month of the season was pretty stressful for us Dolfans.  The team caught… Read more »

New Year, Same Blog

      No Comments on New Year, Same Blog

I’m not a fan of New Years resolutions.  Even less so for my blog than for myself. There are a few things that have always been true for my blog and will always be true: #1 I will never try to sell you anything.  I am not going to put ads on my blog.  I am not going to accept… Read more »

Spouses in Cars Getting Dinner

Along the way and during the drinking of said coffee they talked about everything under the sun- from the boxers vs. briefs debate to what happens… Read more »

National Personal Space Day

      No Comments on National Personal Space Day

Today is a day to celebrate all by yourself.  It’s National personal space day. It could be said that there are two kinds of people in this world- huggers and non huggers.  People who are huggers sometimes forget that non-huggers exist.   In recent times- i.e. 2020 – the huggers were forced to become non-huggers and I’m told this was tough… Read more »

The Struggle Continues

      No Comments on The Struggle Continues

A few years ago I wrote about my life-long struggle with wet/ stinky armpits  I’m sad to report that there hasn’t been much progress since then. I tried several “natural” deodorant products – i.e. ones without aluminum.  Most of them simply didn’t work.  I still smelled bad, but with a hint of vanilla / flowers/ etc. included in the overall… Read more »

That’s Obsolete?!?

      No Comments on That’s Obsolete?!?

It’s said that the only thing in this world that is constant is change.   Technology advances seemingly at the speed of light, rendering things that were cutting edge just a few years ago obsolete now. Along with things becoming obsolete, skills do too.   No one needs to know how to operate a telephone switchboard or send a telegraph anymore.  No… Read more »

Today is World Mental Heath Day. Anyone who knows me at all knows how important this topic is to me.  I’ve been very open about my own life-long struggles with my own mental health.  I’ve been very vocal about how the stigma surrounding mental illness has hurt me and people I love. Mental illness is just that- an illness.   There… Read more »

The Best Time of the Year is Even Better This Year! I Hope.

This weekend is the kickoff of the new NFL season.  FINALLY! I’ve been waiting since February 12th for this! This year I did something new.  You’ve probably heard of the NFL Sunday Ticket- it is a package that allows you legally to view all out of market NFL games from the comfort of your couch.  For 11 years it was… Read more »
