Admittedly, I [...]

CONCERN cares — conquering cancer one child at a time

Volunteering brings me great joy.  It was always part of my master plan in LA.  Not only is it a good way to meet people, but more importantly, giving back/helping people will enrich and expand your life. I’m not new to volunteering — I’ve done it throughout my life.  An experience that I regularly think [...]

No, I work at CBS

I got a story for you.  Most of us have done it…….mistake someone for someone else.  I have done it a couple times in my life.  Well, I recently did it again AND in an outrageous way. I was at BRICK CrossFit in West Hollywood taking my first class.  If you haven’t done it yet, [...]

You live the life you create

I recently wrote a post about how I get through challenging times.  (The last few months have been a bitch, to say the least.)   Anyway, I left out an important coping mechanism for me: hearing people tell their improbable journey story.  These people inspire me to keep on keepin’ on.   Their stories offer hope and keep [...]

This quote came from my boyfriend, Michael.   I’m not sure the origin of this quote but it spoke to me.   I held onto a couple things from my past too long.  I’m happy to report this is no longer the case.  I’m a better and stronger person from these experiences.                                                                   ”We must let go to live on!”

I recently came across an interesting guy, Mark Suster, an entrepreneur turned VC after selling his second company to Salesforce.com.  Mark published a post (titled Life is 10% How You Make It 90% How you Take It) that really spoke to me.  In fact, I used it for this week’s Monday’s quote.  This is an excerpt from [...]

Monday’s quote

Entrepreneur turned venture capitalist Mark Suster says this is one of his favorite quotes: “10% how you make it and 90% how you take it.*  It’s not a recommendation that you don’t have to put in effort to make your life better. It’s an acknowledgement that whatever the outcomes in your life you can choose [...]

Ahhhh, the little things

I want to be as frank as possible with you.   This journey I am on is an emotional rollercoaster.    I have either really high highs or low lows.   I can’t seem to find middle ground.   I make progress in one area but then something happens that knocks me down.   I take one step forward, then [...]

Today’s quote comes from a great website I recent found and turn to regularly.   Gretchen Rubin is the best-selling writer whose book, The Happiness Project, is the account of the year she spent test-driving studies and theories about how to be happier.   I haven’t read the book yet but it’s on my list. “Man needs, for his [...]
