Last Thursday, after a long day at work, I walked to the bus stop eager to get there by 6:00 pm.  Why the excitement?  I wanted to settle in and listen to The Aware Show.   I usually read my email or a book while on the bus, so doing something different is always fun.    Lisa Read More…

in Health[ 2 Comments ]

Does anyone else suffer from this annoying habit “one more thing to do before I leave for the day?”    I’m always rushing for the bus or am a few minutes late meeting someone because I did one more thing. I’m not sure when or why I started this habit, but probably when the kids were Read More…

In these economic times, I’m grateful that I have my own bookkeeping business and am making a living from my work. A year and half ago I had no idea how I was going to pay my bills, and in a short period I’ve built a strong business.  Yet I’ve been running myself ragged with Read More…

Do You Celebrate?

Normally I’m in my office around 1:30 o’clock in the afternoon, busy working and not at all in touch with the outside world. On St. Patrick’s Day, I had the gift of being on the bus around this time and all around me was a ‘sea of green.’  In New York City, the St. Patrick’s Read More…

Happy New Year! I definitely had a grand old time eating my way through the holidays.   I ate whatever interest me and it wasn’t all about veggies and salads.

Closing One Year, Opening Another

in Family, Friends, Health, Relationships[ No Comments ]

It’s hard to believe another year is closing.  Don’t you find that time seems to be moving by more quickly. I do love to look back and see how the year evolved.   Did I do what I wanted, what did I miss and what surprises surface that I didn’t anticipate? This is the time I go Read More…

Is ‘Yes’ In Your Life?

in Health, Personal Growth[ 4 Comments ]

Happy Halloween! This is a wonderful celebration with scary costumes demanding a treat.   I am stretching this image a little!
