Self-Care Slump

Do you ever feel like all you want to do is stay home, eat chocolate and crawl into your woman cave? That was me this past week. I hit a wall. It felt like steel. Cold. Hard. Blue. I’m a force in the world. A happy, resourceful, tenacious, spirit-rich woman. I don’t hit walls. I […]

It’s the Money, Honey

Money Who hasn’t struggled with money—finding it, keeping it, saving it

Elder Care or Care(less)

We walk into the front lobby and we feel comforted by the giant birdcage, the pleasant arrangement of magazines that adorn the contemporary stone table between two warm and cozy chairs. We don’t notice that the magazines are old copies of Runner’s World. It’s been a very long time since any of the residents here […]

The Girl Effect

Confessions of an Info-junkie

It’s an affliction. I’m convinced of it. I’ve always been a bit of a late bloomer. I didn’t learn to swim until I was 21. Not because I didn’t have strong arms or legs or the desire. I was deathly afraid of water. I couldn’t even shower without  gasping for air when the water washed […]

Green Tea or Anomaly

Green Tea or Anomaly? I woke up this morning ready to greet the day with grace and gusto but shortly after my feet hit the floor I could tell I was in for a challenge. My head was pounding—very rare for me. I can’t even remember the last time I said, “Not now, honey, I […]
