Missing It

As an imperfect human, I miss things. I miss things epically! I whiff a basketball shot, avoid the jerk cutting me off in traffic, misunderstand a conversation, forget an appointment… Missing is a part of life. If only missing were a sport, I’d be a gold medalist in the Mislympics! Over time, I’ve learned that missing isn’t all bad. There have been times I’ve missed a phone call or someone’s meaning...

It’s Not Easy Being Green.

Last weekend I hosted some boisterous Middle School girls for a sleepover. Yes, I’m old enough to have a 13 year old daughter, and I’ve been teaching her and her friends for two squee-filled years. During the giggling, crafting, and truth-or-daring I was taken back to the awkward, self-doubting tween I once was. It wasn’t easy feeling different then, and the same holds true as a 30-something year old. Can you...

The Early Bird…

…Catches the Worm? Nah. …Writes the Book. Masters the Marketing. Cleans the House. Looses the Weight. Checks off ALL the To Do’s. That sounds a lot better! Right? Over the past few weeks, I’ve discovered that the first few hours of my day set the pace for its entirety.  So, what do you ‘catch’ first thing in the morning? To be completely transparent, I am the worst at mornings. I want a few more...

#Create

Have we become so uncreative as a culture that we can’t think on our own? Do we need someone to provide a numbered menu and drive through to pick up our creations at the next window? We all have the ability to create. I recently posed a question on Facebook and Twitter, and asked what people would create if they could create anything. Guess what I got? Nothin’. Not one person answered. The next day I posted a similar question in...
