Have you Googled yourself lately? Or better, have you had your teen or college kid Google themselves lately?
If so, what did you find? Were you shocked by the results?
Following your dreams is not for the faint of heart. The truth is a lot of stuff will go right and a lot of stuff will go wrong. At the end of the day, to persevere you have to be able to say, “I’m going for it. I’m taking my leap. F*CK IT.”
Let me preface this by saying, I am not a fitness trainer. I am not a health guru. Not a doctor. Not a physiotherapist. I am just a certified life coach and entrepreneur, and what I am saying today holds no scientific weight, nor any weight at all, you might say. It’s merely based on my personal experience and perception.
But I do, however, think I’m onto something.
It’s cold outside baby! And whether you’re in full winter clothes or toying with spring fashion (I’ve been wearing some pastels to work lately), there is one place that has you covered in this department. Day to night, causal wear, career apparel, girls night out, date night, wedding wear, winter coats, shoes, accessories. Yes, your one stop shop is LeChateau.com. I have been their proud Brand Ambassador for over three years now.
If you don’t believe me, take a look at this video…
And without further ado, let’s show you some great winter and spring looks for every woman, that come in every size, for every occasion.
It is better to prevent burnout at work than to treat it after it happens. Once someone enters this dull routine from which one only craves to escape, it requires serious involvement and sometimes psychological treatment.
But is there a way to prevent burnout without experiencing and treating it? The answer is yes!
What you need to do is to pay attention to the following signs that put you in the risk group to burn out at work:
Happy almost Valentine’s Day!
I like how relationship expert Colleen Long uses the “chocolate/broccoli” analogy. Our long term, loving, secure relationships are the “broccoli.” They are the things that, if we stay committed to, consistently over time grow us up. They make us healthier, more evolved, more balanced, well-rounded individuals. However, chocolate comes along in life (just like opportunities for affairs) and tempts us with ideas like “How wonderful would life be if I could just eat chocolate all the time?” or “This must be the thing I was meant to eat all my life.”
But we all know that no good can come of a long term diet consisting of only chocolate.
On this morning’s Global TV parenting segment, I discussed a very trending topic – #CurvyBarbie. Yes, Barbie has a new body, and it has most moms celebrating, a few skeptics, and others who simply don’t care.
For years, I have been clinging to the sage words of one of my writing teachers, repeating them both aloud and internally, like a sacred mantra. Writing, he told me, is 10 percent talent, and 90 percent tenacity. That is likely true of most things in life. Whether searching for a literary agent, a publisher, a dream job, a relationship, persistence is clearly the way to success.
Somewhere in that equation though, I wonder if a certain percentage should be assigned to serendipity, that fortunate happenstance that surprises and delights. Serendipity, it would seem, was working for me recently when a new business acquaintance of mine was headed to New York City from his home in Vermont.
