How to become positive on a sh*?ty day

You're feeling sorry for yourself.



Your (fill in the part of your body) hurts, you've got a meeting you're not looking forward to, you cheated on your diet, you had an argument with someone close to you, you're looking for work, or perhaps, like me, you've got a deadline to meet and you're stressing out whether you'll finish on time.



So what better time than, now, to shift to a positive attitude. After all, "A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than… Continue

How to be Good

Most of us like the idea of being good, and since it can mean different things to each one of us, I'd like to explore this topic a little deeper.



As a little girl, being "good" meant obeying my parents, doing well in school and feeling good when someone told my mother, "She's a good little girl."



As we grow older, how to be good is generally associated with giving to others, whether it's a listening ear, helping someone in need, or volunteering our time for what we… Continue

How will todays's electronic crazed kids turn out?

I have not seen the movie AVATAR in 3-D, but a thought suddenly occured to me: How would a child from some remote African village, one who has never seen a movie react to wearing special glasses and watching AVATAR in 3-D? Would they think the characters were real? Would they run out of the movie theatre screaming? Or would they simply get hooked like most teenagers since the movie surpassed the $1 billion mark.



What are your thoughts on that?

When Our Words Can Help Another Mom.

"You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late."

Ralph Waldo Emerson.



When I opened my comments this morning, Kaci from MY THREE SONS, gave me a beautiful gift. Her kind words made me realize how we can touch people with our written words.



You see Kaci is a single mom raising three sons: 14, 13 and 3, and she wrote: "I have a little story that I wanted to share with you. Last night my 14-year-old son was sitting with me in the… Continue

When Your Teenager Shows Initiative: Even if it's Paintballing.

As with most families in the northern hemisphere, it's summertime, which means twelve weeks off. What to do? sports, summer camps, summer school, volunteering, or jobs? With a fifteen-year-old, it's different. They're a little too young to get a summer job, and often quite lazy.



Well this year's different. Jordan, my youngest son, has shown some initiative, and I'm feeling quite proud of him. He wants to earn some money for his passion: Paintballing. Now, don't get me started on the… Continue
