Living with OTHERS

DESERVE Mercy?

I once was pulled over by a cop for not having my tags up to date. As I sat there waiting for him to go back to his car to run my plates to see if I had actually paid for new tags, my mind was racing to remember if I had gotten the tags paid for this vehicle or was it the other one. I had paid online for the first time and never […]

Loving the Enemy

I realized the other day that my justice-o-meter is on hyper-sensitive. We had received a letter from those in charge of my husband’s compensation and pension review based on the injuries from his accident 27 years ago.

Obstacles: The Orange Cone Zone

I am getting excited about what is possible, seeing what needs to be done and working the steps to reaching my goals and then BAM! I hit a construction zone I was not expecting, with orange cones everywhere and traffic down to one lane moving at 25mph. Ugh. Why?! First off, that has happened to you too, yes?! I know I am not alone. I have had a few clients who on week one make […]
