Paying it Forward! August 1, 2016 – Posted in: News

Have you ever heard of the phrase paying it forward? I first learned about this 2 years ago, when my daughter and I were at a toll booth about to pay and the ticket-taker person said it was paid already by the car that just pulled off. I was in awe, felt God had personally Blessed me, and smiled the whole rest of the trip. The next Sunday in church the Pastor happened to be preaching on Christian values and behaviors and brought up this same phrase. He said that it is our responsibility to pay it forward when we are Blessed. It doesn’t have to be about money, it could be just complimenting someone, saying hello and asking how they are doing, helping someone open a door who has a bag full of packages, or giving a sandwich to a homeless person.

Dress Better, Feel Better July 25, 2016 – Posted in: News

It’s been said many times that dressing up, having your hair done, wearing makeup, wearing jewelry, getting in shape, etc… makes you feel better about yourself. And that you should do it for yourself and not for someone else. But doesn’t it also make us feel good when someone else notices? I happen to use this technique when I am in a mental slump. I notice that when I go to my office in sweats and a tee, I feel sluggish and tired. Keep in mind I work from my home office, so rolling back into bed is closer to reality than it may be for others.

Do our clothes/outfits really boost self-esteem, confidence… Read More

Digital vs. Print: The Book Battle Rages On February 2, 2015 – Posted in: Blog, Books, Inspiration, Thoughts

As the holiday shopping season swings into full force, it’s interesting to watch people buying books. Many a wish list has everything from the latest by Stephen King to an Amazon Gift Card (an actual card or via email) to a new e-reader device. Yet the battle for which is more popular is truly running neck and neck. No matter who you ask, the answer is always different, and usually very passionate. Christine Donovan, from Deerfield Beach, FL, says, “I love my Kindle! I can have anything I want at my fingertips! The store is always open, no matter what my mood.” Essentially, she’s right. The internet is always open, and you can go to any site that sells digital books, pick what you want, pay and within seconds it’s downloaded onto whatever device you use. Yet others will say, “But I love the feel/look/smell of a book in my hands,… Read More
