“A Lost Traveler”

I can still remember the feeling that I had in the pit of my stomach on two of the last flights I took before the world shut down from Covid. The first one was on a flight from Boston to Ft. Lauderdale mid-February. Our flight was delayed due to a tropical storm in the south.Continue reading ““A Lost Traveler””

“What’s your story?”

Your stories are the fabric of your life. What do they say about you? Is it what you want it to say about you? I think it’s important to remember that we are the creator of our individual story regardless of what circumstances life throws our way. How we respond to life, the decisions weContinue reading ““What’s your story?””

“The Importance of Confidence”

What makes you feel confident? Is it when you are at your ideal weight, have a certain amount of money in the bank, job title, attractive partner by your side? Why do we need these things to have a positive attitude about our own skills and abilities? Shouldn’t we accept and trust ourselves with confidenceContinue reading ““The Importance of Confidence””

“When will things return to normal?”

This is a question we all have asked ourselves – consciously or unconsciously. There is surely a communal longing to feel a sense of safety and normalcy again. When will we be able to greet someone without awkward hesitation?  When will we be able to travel without fear of judgment from others? When will weContinue reading ““When will things return to normal?””

“Ordinary Moments”

Watching movies that were filmed “pre-pandemic” puts into perspective the ordinary moments that we take for granted. Scenes from packed bars and restaurants, crowded sporting events, large family gatherings, and bustling city streets with no one wearing a mask makes us all move a little in our seats as this has been embedded in usContinue reading ““Ordinary Moments””

“Escaping the winter blues”

I used to avoid traveling in the winter months. I didn’t think it was worth the headaches associated with the unpredictable New England weather. All it takes is a good “nor’easter” to ground air travel for days. I thought winter months were best for playing catch up on bills and work, but after seeing enticingContinue reading ““Escaping the winter blues””

“What does it mean to show up for yourself?”

This is a question I find myself pondering a good amount. It’s a term that has become quite trendy these days, but what does it really mean? As I cope through stress, I find myself pouring that extra glass of wine (that I really don’t want), fighting with myself not to pull in to DunkinContinue reading ““What does it mean to show up for yourself?””

“How I am becoming healthy again”

I have always believed that “health is wealth”. To live my best life, I need to make health a priority so that I can feel good and have enough energy to enjoy the fullest life possible. I have seen far too many people taken too soon or become handicap at a younger age than theyContinue reading ““How I am becoming healthy again””

“Opting Out”

Avoidance is a coping mechanism that is used to avoid stressful situations. An interesting new social norm that has aroused my curiosity is the ignoring of texts, messaging apps, email, and other online invites. I have heard people say that it’s a “polite” way of declining and it should not be considered rude. No responseContinue reading ““Opting Out””

“2020 – A year of change”

“Change is the law of life, and those who look only to the past and present are certain to miss the future” -John F. Kennedy I remember ringing in the new year full of hope.“It was going to be a great year”, I thought. After all, Halloween was going to fall on a Saturday. NewContinue reading ““2020 – A year of change””
