The Oscars are this weekend and I am a movie lover. So, let’s play a game! Two Truths and a Lie: 1) My husband and I have watched over 3,000 movies during our married life together. 2) I was a seat filler at the 62nd Academy Awards on March 26, 1990, while I was attending college in LA. 3) One of my all-time favorite movies is “Singing in the Rain”. One of the things about being a movie lover is that there are so many opportunities for pleasure.
The Gift of Communication
The gift of communication often gets taken for granted, but I was suddenly feeling nostalgic when I spotted this old telephone in an antique shop recently. It flooded me with a million memories.
Home is Home
Home is home, and I’m finally back! After working remotely for the past several weeks with my hubby in Southern California, I am back in my own home office and you know what? I feel a little like George Bailey in “It’s a Wonderful Life”. I’m so grateful for my home and have a new perspective for my office and all the ease I have running my business and my personal life here.
Sharing the Truth
I’m sharing the truth. I am a napper! There I said it out loud in a professional work setting. I used to feel embarrassed that I could use a nap some days of the week. It made me feel like I wasn’t being as productive as I was expected to be or that it wasn’t fair that I was taking this time for myself.

Valentine’s Day has been celebrated around the world for hundreds of years as a day to celebrate the love shared between two people.
Beginning the New Year with Hope
Perhaps you are beginning this new year with a little bit of hope again. I hope you made time to replenish your tank during the final days of the year. As the calendar changes to a new year, it feels like a fresh start.
How did you feel about today?
How did you feel about today? It’s January 3rd. No matter what your working situation is, how did you feel about going back to work today?
Showing gratitude is good for all, so why don’t we give thanks more? I read an article this weekend about research suggesting that people underestimate how much other people will appreciate being appreciated, instead focusing on their own writing.
