November 2010 Happiness Project: Attitude Adjustment

Attitude is everything.  And I firmly believe that life is 10 percent what you make it and 90 percent how you take it. This month’s happiness project focus is on ATTITUDE.  Let that marinate for a minute. How does your attitude affect your happiness? Attitude is defined as your manner or disposition, but also describes […]

What’s Your Top Health Concern?

Mine is breast cancer.  I was diagnosed five years ago. Fortunately, and by God’s grace, I found it early.  Today, I am able to celebrate five years as a cancer survivor.  It was scary.  And still is.  It is always in the back corner of my mind. I’m not the only one.  WebMD asked women […]

Money Can’t Buy You Love, But it Can Buy Happiness

At least according to new research on the subject.  And happiness increases as your salary increases up to about $75,000 a year.  At $76,000 and up, your happiness is downhill from there.  Hmm.  That seems counterintuitive.  But hey, they’ve got studies to back it up.  According to The Huffington Post: People’s emotional well-being – happiness […]

Where’s My Mom?

Physically, she’s probably sitting at home on the couch watching HGTV or The Biggest Loser. But the mommy I once knew is gone. My mother is battle-tested, and battle-scarred. But that never held her from moving us forward. The last couple of years haven’t been a crystal stair. Hell, neither have the last 40 years. […]

I was recently visiting family back home.  My cousins, who are more like sisters to me, and I were having a conversation on toxic relationships with family, friends and significant others, and how sometimes the best thing you can do is distance yourself from them. It seems harsh, but regardless of if you love someone, […]

The Sound of Silence: I Dare You to Give it a Try

Silence is the relative or total lack of audible sound. By analogy, the word silence may also refer to any absence of communication, even in media other than speech. Silence is also used as total communication, in reference to non verbal communication and spiritual connection. Okay so like many of you I saw the new […]

Music and Mental Health

Music has always been soothing to my soul.  No matter the tribulation, task, or terribleness, music was my way to power through the pain – whether physical or mental.  Music allowed me refuge and permission to let out whatever emotions were bottled up inside.  Suffice it to say, music has a calming effect that prevents […]

Why Do You Blog?

I get lots of questions like this from friends and strangers. They say, “you have a full time career, why are you blogging?” My responses vary depending on the audience. In my most honest and pure moments I admit that it’s cheaper than therapy. Life isn’t easy.  And it doesn’t come with an instruction manual.  My […]

What If There Is Nothing Wrong With You?

Wow.  We spend so much time asking ourselves what is wrong with us (women especially) that we rarely think about the novel concept that nothing is wrong. Hilary Rubin posits this question over at The Huffington Post: I was sitting listening to a recording about practicing being in the moment from my coach Marie Foleo […]
