Be someone I want to respect.

I am not a big fan of rude, despite the fact that some days, it seems that rude people rule the world. At some point, I thought maybe it would stop. Surely, kindness, consideration and an overall sense of justice would kick in and some kind of decency equilibrium would be restored. Oh, silly me. Apparently, even the mentors of the world are allowed to slap on a jersey and ball cap and coach folks into leading their lives backsides […]

Bounce Back.

There is an actress currently on an American Soap Opera who has been on the show for a very long time (and by “very” I mean before remote controls were in play to change the channel to or from the television show she’s been on) – and since the day she was hired to be on the show there’s been a clause in her contract that she cannot gain more than five pounds. Five pounds. I don’t know about you, […]

Team YOU.

I’m not sure if it happens to everyone, but I am at a point in my life where I’ve decided I need to cut some people from my “team.” We all have people in our lives that make our “team” and I think we’ve allowed some players to participate along the way who are not up to snuff. Growing up, I often heard the phrase “Life is a rat race.” It was often followed by, “…and the rats are winning.” […]

Yakkety Yak and the games we play.

A short time ago, someone that I don’t know very well (at all, really), made a comment about my life based on what was read on my FB page.  Period.  No other informational input, just the less-filling, not very nutritious, artificially sweetened thin slices of social media served up sporadically over time.  I happen to love social media, but it is a bit like one of those cartoon flip-books – picture by picture, it goes by rather slowly.  Rifle through […]

I know Jack.

Last night I learned of Jack LaLanne’s passing and thought for sure it would be followed by Mark Twain’s great quote “reports of my death are greatly exaggerated” with Jack raucously laughing in the background, because if ANYbody appreciated a good joke, it was Jack, especially if he was the one telling it. They say that the 1914 Atlantic hurricane season was the least active on record.  I’m going to say it was simply because Jack was born smack in […]

HOT Yoga

I attended a Hot Yoga class, at the recommendation of a friend, thinking it would be a good thing for my back and neck after my December car crash.  Oh, the road to you-know-where is paved with good intentions and I’m here to tell you it’s more than a little hot along the way.   Hot Yoga.  What is it?  First clue?  First word.  Everything else doesn’t matter.  I knew from the get-go what I was getting into, but thought […]
