We Need a Slow Revolution

Remember when you asked a person “how’s it going?” and the standard response would be “it’s going alright” or “fine” or “good good”, but more often than not today the response is “BUSY!” and then you sympathize and say “I know, so busy”. Being busy has become a cultural norm. I long for the days […]

I need to drop 20 pounds.  I am getting married on June 15 and I was worried about my dress fitting since my ten pound weight gain, and sure enough I couldn’t zip it up.  I bought myself a sample size dress from a bridal convention last year in 2018 and there is no ability to let […]

What is Your Why for Losing Weight and Staying Fit?

I believe Simon Sinek, author, motivational speaker and organizational consultant is the one who began the buzz phrase “what is your why?” and how defining your why can lead you to success & satisfaction. You can find a plethora of talks on YouTube by Sinek, but with a focus more on careers and helping organizations […]

When You Gain Back Weight You Worked Your Butt Off to Lose

Probably one of the greatest frustrations one can experience is “waking up” and realizing you cannot go back to old habits and if you want to continue to lose or maintain, you need to stick to the healthy lifestyle change. I had lost twenty pounds by the time summer arrived last year in 2018.  My […]

The Number One Lesson of 2018 is Health is Everything…

The most important lesson 2018 taught me is nothing is more important than your health.  I have said it many times before, Health is Wealth.  Having a fantastic career is worthless without your health.  Having the financial means to travel, owning the opulent possessions, fancy cars, gorgeous mansions, it all means nothing without your health.  […]

Cafes Abound in South Korea

I remember back in 2001 when I first traveled to Europe, the only place I could find a big cup of strong coffee was at McDonalds. I went to countless cafes and always ended up with a teeny tiny demi-tasse of espresso or a large bowl full of cafe au lait. Coffee has taken over […]

The Greatest Currency is TIME

In my quest for a less cluttered life and embracing minimalism; the reason for the pursuance of less is to free up the precious commodity which none of us seem to have enough of is “time”. The more busy I become with work, navigating traffic during rush hour, checking into social media outlets, I have […]

I Know the Secret to Happiness…

I know the secret to happiness and it is easy; happiness is something every human being can attain.  I can sum it up in one simple word “gratitude”.  Folk like Oprah have been preaching about an attitude of gratitude for well over a decade, but it is 100% the truth and logical when you think […]

Day 21 – Summer 2018 Mins Game 

Today’s purge is a biggie!  I culled the closet to see what I could find & I found a lot.  I probably could have selected a few more items and I may before the end of this minimalism challenge, but I still find myself attached to some things, which I want to give another chance. […]
