STOP with the Shaming!

“A critic is someone who never actually goes to the battle, yet who afterwards comes out shooting the wounded.” – Tyne Daly As if we didn’t have enough negativity in the world right now – but what is the DEAL with keyboard warriors on social media trying to incite anger, panic or finger pointing.

Hard Conversations

I recently read a statement that made me think…to summarize:“It seems that almost every woman knows another woman (or man) who has been sexually victimized, but almost no men seem to know another man who would do such a thing”.  The. Math. Doesn’t. Add. Up!  This got to me (and my blood slowly simmering up […]

Sexy? Smart? Both…?

Since being cooped up indoors, I have admittedly been doing a little more “Netflix and Chill” (alone!) than normal. I watched a documentary called “Miss Representation” the other evening and it touched on something I thought was interesting, because I have noticed it and felt the same way! I’m talking about the “sexy” super hero […]

The Gift of Life

Lately there’s been a focus on dividing the generations and (seemingly) pointing blame at one group of people or another. There’s also a careless attitude floating about with a sentiment of “COVID-19 only kills the older people” …as if that’s something not to be concerned with?

Words I Dislike

I don’t know about anyone else – but I HATE the word “mentee” and the word “tasker/s”. These are VERY prevalent in my workplace and I would guess they are most likely quite common in any office based setting – however they make me cringe whenever I hear them. I come from the (argument) camp […]

Invest in YOURSELF

Frequently we are guilt-tripped into feeling like somehow we aren’t allowed to be better. We get into this stale mindset and are convinced that we’re either 1. fine the way we are or 2. we should be spending our time, energy, or resources on “more important” things for our families, relationships, job or community. I […]

Boss vs. Leader

It’s been said that “people quit bosses, not jobs” – and I wanted to look at that idea. Boss v. Leader I never thought about the importance of the terms/labels until much later in life – but I think there are important distinctions. When I think of “boss”, it brings forth ideas of being told […]
