Trusting yourself

So it has become glaringly obvious that I needed to do this post. With each passing day over the two weeks I have heard numerous stories about good friends being let go from work and "not knowing whats next".  I shared with them, "if we knew what was next, we wouldn't be living now would we".  The biggest idea I have heard from people is that they don't know what is  next, or who they are without their work.  I always challenge them to see the beauty in change.

This quote by Marianne Williamson resonated so loudly this morning as I woke up to find another friend out of work, depressed and confused.  

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothin…

Deleting Facebook Off My Phone

So as many of you know I am a tech and social media junkie. I need to be going to TSMA meetings (Technology & Social Media Anonymous).  I have been and still am a huge proponent of Social media and technology when it works.  When it technology doesn't then it becomes another paper weight, and when social media, especially on my phone, is quirky, slow, or unresponsive, well then I delete you off my phone.

The day that I knew was coming

It happens to all of us.  We know a certain day will happen but we continually put it off.  We say in our head, "it won't happen", or "its a long way off".  Well the day came this week and although I am surprised, it was a great soft set down for me.  The event I am talking about is my dentist, Dr. Jeffrey Greenberg, decided to retire and turn his practice over.

It was funny because I had a small idea that this was going to be the year when I drove down for my last appointment.  I had that sneaking suspicion in my heart that he was going to tell me this year, I just wasnt' sure when.  Thats part of what being an empath is.  I was blessed to have an amazing visit with the Dr and my dental hygenist, Priscilla earlier this year.

I got the call on Thursday and didn't recognize the number.  I let it go to voicemail.  I listened to the message and it was awesome.  Dr Greenberg said  that he wanted me to hear it first before social media and other outlets tha…
