The rice comes in two forms. You can choose the packet or the box. The packet takes only 90 seconds to cook, but the boxed rice takes about 45 minutes to make. From a list of options, I decided to try the 'Seven Grain Shrimp Bowl' recipe, except with the Indian Rice Blend and omitting the ingredients my family would not want, red peppers for example. This way, dinner would be ready quickly!…

I cannot be the only one....whose family has an allergic reaction to Monday mornings, although our allergies aren't sniffy noses or red eyes, rather they manifest themselves as moans, groans, and stomach aches that appear mysteriously. In the midst of all this Monday morning agony there are shoes and socks to find, lunch boxes and juice boxes to pack, and car keys forgotten on the hook by the door all keeping us from getting a move on.…Continue

Remember playing car-racing games at the arcade, trying to stay on the virtual road while going as fast as you can? In those videos, sharp curves keep switching and obstacles suddenly appear, causing you to crash and burn if your reactions aren’t fast enough.
It may be fun to play a game, but what about when life itself mirrors this wild ride? Whether you're actually on a…Continue

I had a life changing moment recently. I've written a book been featured on major news outlets like the Business Insider, Wall Street Journal and more. I've been very blessed. I coach an amazing group of women who want to make money with their blog and they are writing books and doing great.
But in spite of all those accomplishments nothing filled my heart as much as the though of helping this young boy. I was a volunteer recently at an event and this was my experience.

I've been telling my husband lately that my life is a lot like Groundhog's Day.
Monotonous. Yes. But I'm actually the one choosing to shape it that way, since it keeps everything flowing smoothly and sanely here.
My personal Groundhog's Day is complete with:
* Anticipating hunger by pre-preparing snacks.
* Thinking of meals in as far advance as I can stand, so I don't end up in a hot…

In my younger days I was naive enough to think I could control change. I’ve learned, but not quickly enough, that no one can control or stop change. And, here is an interesting little fact: Charles Darwin believed that those people who survive the ones who can adapt to ongoing change. They are not necessarily the strongest or the smartest, but they are the survivors. That thought of survival brings me to today’s topic of change and how to understand it a little better.
