How To Make Your Life Exponentially Better
How to make your life exponentially better. Anyone think that by chasing happiness, your life is gonna magically turn itself around? That if you could just be happy, dadgumit, your rivers of worries and heartaches would align with the sea and flow effortlessly out of sight, cleansing your life and freeing you to get on […]
Why Is This So Hard?
Why is this so hard? What is this? Life. Life is like learning how to drive a stick. Life is hard, y’all. But why? Why is life hard? Cause, um, we’re breathing and we’re feelers of all the feelings. Yeah, I’m going with that. Oh, my babies – is life popping you in the kisser?! […]
Who Are You and What Do You Do?
I’m obsessed with who it is I am and what is is I do. Are you? It’s my literal business to be deeply aware of what I do, whom I do it for, what folks want and how I can offer them (you!) what is needed and wanted. At my most basic, I’m a teacher. […]
When is it Best to Ignore Internet Wisdom?
I’m about to lay some valuable Internet wisdom on ya – feel free to do you and ignore. You know the commercial about feeling FOMO (fear of missing out)? When you are in search of what it is you need to know, what it is you are desperate to know, ignoring the sage-like gurus, ignoring […]
It’s Not Clever – It’s Pathetic and Lazy

Salty over Facebook? What Are You Doing About it?
This post was going to be about Facebook bending us over in the trust department and Zuckerberg’s Facebooksplainin’ about how we allowed all they’ve done to us. ~friendly non-threatening face here~ He’s not entirely wrong. We willingly let him in, thereby signing up for our personal Brutification (et tu, Mark?), so it seems childish to… […]
How Do You Narrow “It” Down?
It’s late afternoon, I’m drinking a Corona, listening to the workers next door saw through their 100th piece of wood for the day, trying to put my thoughts together. Thank goodness for Don Henley – the music of wide open spaces and road trips. SHUT THE HELL UP, WORLD! MAMA’S TRYING TO WORK. Yeah. There […]
About the Happiest New Year Pic Ever! Now What?
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Told ya. Happy! This year, this day, this moment – something is happening to me (I’m betting you can relate), something is insisting I change course in my business. It didn’t happen at the strike of midnight on New Year’s Eve, as so many watched the old slide away and the new […]
Is Speed What It’s All About?
My favorite running shorts talk smack. If I pass you while running, this is what you’ll see: They’re comfy and funny as hell, especially for me when I charge past your slower-than-me behind. SEE YA! ~maniacal runner’s laugh~ When I wear these shorts, I usually do two things. #1: Laugh at their ridiculousness. #2: Think […]
