Wait for it. Wait for it. Wait for it. All good things come to those who wait? Is that true? Do you mind when you have to wait for something? Or do you do whatever is in your power to make things happen NOW? I’m a pretty patient person when it comes to waiting. I never mind waiting in a doctor’s office when he/she is running late. My thought is that someone must need the attention more than I do. I don’t mind waiting in lines at the grocery store because it gives me the time to read the headlines on all the gossip magazines.Read More →

Do you have a favorite holiday? Are you all about the festivities of Christmas or do you prefer a Labor Day barbeque? Do you doodle hearts in anticipation of Valentine’s Day or are you more of a Halloween pumpkin and skulls person? Maybe it is all of the above because you just enjoy a good celebration. One of my favorite holidays to celebrate is the Chinese New Year. Given I am not Chinese or that I’ve never been to China, it may seem odd for me to enjoy this annual event. To me it is no different than people who celebrate Bastille Day or CincoRead More →

How did you learn to share?   Does it go back to your earliest memories of childhood where you didn’t have a choice but to share with your siblings?  Were there things that you wanted to keep to yourself only to share them later because it was the right thing to do?  As an adult, sharing is a part of life.  Sometimes it is what we want to do and sometimes we do it grudgingly. It can be as simple as sharing our thoughts with a friend or coworker.  Or it can be as challenging as sharing a belief on religion or politics.  You can shareRead More →

I love to make recipes from different areas of the world. I feel even though I may have never been to very many places, I can get a taste of what the natives are eating. (Unless there are areas where natives are eating natives, I won’t do that.) I sometimes am hesitant to write about my attempts in fear of them not being authentic. People get so hopped up when you aren’t genuine or real with things. Example….this one time I put on a super padded bra. It was kind of neat to see how different I looked but when I walked out of myRead More →

When do you realize that you are starting to get old? Is it a number that makes you old? 40? 50? 60? 70? Is it when you and your friends start every conversation with the weather and commentary on your aches and pains? Maybe it is when you start putting the word “the” before other nouns? (Example… The Cancer, The HBO, The Twitter.) I have my moments where I do something and then say, “Ready or not….here it comes…I’m getting old!”   I think the first big indicator for me has been my glasses or as I fondly call them…my old lady glasses. I can seeRead More →
