Save money: Limit worktime expenses

  There are some actions I perform in my life that, in the past, I haven’t allowed much brain time. If it’s something Ifeel I  need to do, I just do it. Like spending money on a Lyft ride to work when it’s freezing cold outside. (I DESPISE the cold weather) I spend part of…

Are you living your best life; or playing it safe?

It’s a question I’ve been asking myself a lot lately,  particularly about my career choice as a nursing assistant. I’ve always believed that I belonged in a helping career. Years ago, in high school, becoming a social worker was my chosen path but then life took me down another path – a couple of them…

Forget the secrets: Eat well with 3 steps

I read a lot about secrets. The secret to eating healthy; the secret to losing weight. And as a 56-year-old who has starved herself, spent probably hundreds of dollars on diet pills: Dexatrim, Hydroxycut, Green Tea Fat Burner, Jillian Michel’s Fat Burner; I’m here to tell you, THERE IS NO SECRET.

My Raw Vegan Journey

Spring is coming! So it’s time to reinvent myself a bit. I’ve always been a bit of a chameleon: from straight hair to dreadlocs; carnivore-carb queen to vegetarian; vegetarian to vegan and back to vegetarian; couch potato to runner to yogi; and now vegetarian to raw vegan. It’s enough to make your head spin huh?…

Quiet time: Enjoying the silence

This morning I needed a quiet space. I was sick of the movies in my Amazon Video list, sick of the movies in my DVD collection, sick of the gospel and R&B music on my Spotify playlist and sick of the same in my CD collection. Not that I won’t ever watch or listen to…

Stressed? Zentangle your life

Well, here we are in 2018! If you’re reading this post, you made it to another year; another chance at new opportunities; another opportunity to begin your life again. Whatever was in 2017 is now your past, my past, our past. And to begin my year, I’m expanding on a creative endeavor that I discovered…
