As a pet owner, life long pet lover, an animal advocate, and a
former manager of the SPCA of Wake County I know what it feels like to lose a pet. I also know what it feels like to find a lost animal and not be able to locate the owner. Conversely, I have also experienced the "high" that you feel when you see a pet and its owner reconnect. It is an amazing feeling--a high that you never want to come down from.
emotions I speak of combined with the financial impact on the pet… Read More

When I am presenting our services I often hear this comment. But when you really think about it, your existing insurance may not be adequate. Most people purchase life insurance for the benefit of a surviving family member. Even if your intention is to cover final expenses, it may not be adequate. Lets consider what final expenses you may have. There may be hospital and other medical bills due from an illness prior to your death. You may also have other debts owed from credit card accounts… Read More

When my mother mentioned buying a treadmill once, my father looked at her with a slightly surprised frown on his face. “That contraption won’t take you anywhere,” he said, “you walk and walk, and you never move from the point you started.” It was a joke, of course, but when I thought about those words later on in life, I realized they can be applied to more than exercise.
A treadmill is surely a great invention – one can walk in the comfort of one’s own home, sheltered from petty… Read More

“Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation leans on the doorbell.” ~ Author Unknown
Yesterday I had the best time talking to my daughter and two of her little friends, as they were telling me what they want to be when they grow up. Although Princess was definitely on top of the chart, the next two hot personas on the “want to be” list were mommy and model. That fun talk made me think about all the projects that we envision and give up because of obstacles and hardship. Are… Read More

Take a peek at your desk. Are there unpaid bills or unfiled papers? Check out your To Do list. Do you have unanswered phone calls or projects that have sat for months without action? Look around the house. Are there repairs yet to be made or messes yet to be addressed?

There are moments that remain so clear in one’s mind that it would be suitable to say they were forever captured in a mental photograph. For me, one of these moments took place a little over a year ago, when on a chilly April afternoon – a snapping breeze was blowing in, unforgivably and unseasonably, from the Mississippi river only a couple of blocks down – I stood at the corner of Dumaine and Royal in new Orleans, and vowed to be back the next year or even sooner.
Earlier that day… Read More

"You are the person who has to decide. Whether you'll do it or toss it aside, you are the person who makes up your mind. Whether you'll lead or will linger behind; whether you'll try for the goal that's afar, or just be contented to stay where you are." ~ Edgar A. Guest

As the summer continues to heat up, we may be motivated to wear lighter, more revealing clothing, just to stay cool. Shorts, sleeveless tops, and swim suits as we hit the water to cool off. Being the human beings that we are, we want to look good and feel good about ourselves as more bare skin is revealed. Is there a solution to removing the “cottage cheese” look to our skin and cellulite?
So what is…

It is not uncommon for strange things to happen when my friend Donna and I get together for meditations. Saturday night was no different, but what we learned from an odd occurrence only confirmed something we had already come to terms with.
After an unusually rough week for my friend, we decided to get together for coffee. She arrived at my house around nine at night, after my children had gone to bed, and we sat at my kitchen table discussing all that had happened. To her credit,… Read More

It is said that most businesses fail within the first 5 years.
What bothers me about this high number is not just the businesses that didn't work out, businesses come and go all the time. What bothers me is the shattered dreams of the ones that started the business. I have met many hopeful entrepreneurs that not only lost a lot of money, they lost their hope, spirit and desire to dream.
What is sad is that in most of these cases, it… Read More
