  • Celebrations are Important in Life

    When I was a young adult, I missed out on a number of family celebrations that I could not fit into my schedule.  I was busy with my career and new friends.  And, I lived in distant cities.  Now, I have a better understanding of the uncertainty of life.  The losses.  The heartache.  The ...

  • Would a Stranger Describe You as Confident?

    The television sprung to life with a game show.  Not my usual fare, but it caught my attention.  A young woman had just gotten the chance to compete on-stage.  When asked about her life, she said, “I was a college student, but now want to have a singing career.” It was not what she said that struck me.  It was her total ...

  • Time for the Annual Flu Shot

    Do you need to make every working hour count?  Do you have a big deadline in the months ahead?  Or a event scheduled this winter?  As self-employed people, when we cannot work we may lose income that is never recovered.  Influenza can be quite serious, costing us 10 to 14 days of health, or worse.  Every year my husband and I get flu ...

  • Hunched Over

    The thing I heard most from my mom when growing up was:  “Stand up straight!”  I had the bad habit of standing with a curved back and protruding stomach.  Fortunately, I grew out of it. Later, after spending years over a computer keyboard, my posture became somewhat fixed in the opposite way:  shoulders forward and down, spine in the slouch position, head ...

  • Need Refreshment?

    August is half-gone.  For most of us, our energy level will be rising again soon.  In the South, students are beginning to return to college.  Public schools are gearing up.  Vacations are winding down.  Although people in other geographic locations are on a later schedule, we feel the impending arrival of a national mood change. Are you craving refreshment?  Before the crush and excitement of the fall returns, take some time.    Need a break in the action?  ...

  • Know Yourself

    Whether working in our small businesses, or leading our non-business lives, we can become happier and more confident if we have a working knowledge of our selves.  No one is perfect, but we are all capable of improvement as we mature. It troubles me to hear people say, “You can be whatever you want to be.”  That is not true.  If we do not have good visual skills, we can improve them with training, but will ...

  • Walk This Way

    You know the feeling, I’m sure.  I finally get out of the home office and am in the midst of a long list of errands.  The office supply store.  The dry cleaners.  The pharmacy.  Pulling into one more parking lot, at Target, I look for the closest parking space.  I have to hurry.  I have to cross off everything on my ...

  • Do You Hear What I Hear?

    A dear friend has rediscovered a world she had forgotten.  With the help of technology, she is now able to hear sounds that had gradually disappeared from her life.  Disease in early adulthood had stolen much of her hearing so subtly that she did not notice.  Now, she is amazed to hear her clocks tick and chime.  She did not need these sounds, but now she is enjoying them. We hear sounds all around us, even ...

  • Facing Facts

    When crisis comes, do you look it in the eye?  Can you recognize it for what it is? Shortly after September 11, 2001, a dear friend admitted that – after hearing the news – she climbed into bed and pulled the covers over her head.  I am sure she was not the only one who reacted that way. Identification and acceptance of reality is an important sign of good mental health.  This is particularly important when it ...

  • The Vacation That Wasn’t

    Three years ago my primary client had a personnel change late in the spring.  Since summer was their busiest time of the year, I decided not to take vacation.  I wanted to be there for my new client to help him through the maze of processing and planning. That was a very bad idea. Without the refreshment that comes with dedicated family and relaxation time, I began to feel mentally drained.  I grew tired of the grind. Fortunately, as ...
