The Third Trimester of Living

This is 60 I recently turned 60, hard to believe, but as I enter my golden years or silver ones to match the evolving color of my hair, figuring out who I am and what should I be doing for the rest of my life has taken on a new meaning. You see, I never…

How are your resolutions going?

New Year resolutions~ plan, act, create, invent, innovate, develop, inspire, share, earn. accomplish Two weeks into the New Year & how's it going? Are you hitting the gym everyday? Have you cleaned out your closets, set up a budget or started that business you always talked about? So many of us make resolutions each year…

Grateful

    Optimist or pessimist?  Do you find the 'good' in life and others or do you focus on the 'bad'?  Life is a never-ending series of triumphs and challenges.  The continual barrage of changing circumstances can be frightening or invigorating, it depends upon your perspective.  I am an eternal optimist.  I embrace what's good…

Motivation

Motivation comes from within.  Our lives keep us moving towards goals and our aspirations get us there.  It is when we really want something that we work the hardest.  Complacency gets you no where, yet motivation can move mountains.  I have devoted the past ten years to my pet project The Honeysuckle Foundation for Children…
