Decision time is made

If anyone looks back over my blog, my posts, etc. I look like I'm all over the map in 'what I want to be when I grow up.'

I'm passionate about memory keeping and paper crafting.  I love to make things (that makes me an artist) and I really want to teach people on how to record their memories without the pressure of 'scrapbooking'.  Women hear that word - scrapbooking - and they immediately think of these fancy, beautiful pages that conjures up the thought, "I can't possibly do that -…

Dan’s Six Month Challenge

As most members of this community know, Dan put out a challenge in his August 15th podcast. He proposed if someone would read/listen to “positive, encouraging, uplifting, instructional material” for thirty minutes each day for six months, that their income would double. He even offered to buy lunch for those who would actually do that. I know several people have written in saying they were taking him up on this. I too was intrigued, and decided to go for it and prove Dan…

Regret or No Regret, Which Will You Choose?

So many things were going through his mind as he was transported in the back of the ambulance.  “Is this it?  Is this the end?  There is so many things I still need to do.  I still have so much to say to my family.  I regret so many things.  Please, I just need a little more time.”



In the many years I spent working on an…

Subjective Nature Versus Ego-Driven

Subjective decisions are always based on unique knowledge about what is best for oneself and in that sense it is related to the ego, naturally. But there is a duality to the human nature. When an action goes beyond its boundary (only someone ego-driven would pretend to know what is best for some other subjective…

Awareness leads to opportunities

We're about a month into our official school year here, but as homeschoolers, the learning never truly ends. 

One thing we have been teaching our twins is to be aware. Awareness has many benefits, on the one hand, awareness can save a person from harm, or prevent you from being the butt of your brother's latest prank. On the other hand, awareness can open an opportunity to something unexpected.

The unexpected happened a few days ago.

I had gone to the local market to…

Have you ever tried Peruvian Cuisine?

Here in the Salt Lake City area, I have never experienced Peruvian food or given it much thought. Then three weeks ago when I was rushing to get to an appointment, I saw this restaurant in an obscure location. I quickly took note of the name and vowed to return.

And return I did. I also got to write a…

Tough Boss? You're Lucky!

"I hate my boss." Have you heard that, or said that yourself? Think about the reasons someone might "hate" their boss.

- They pay attention to details and notice when you stray across the line.

- They hold you accountable for your actions.

Overtime pay

It is not very often that I write on labor laws or politics. 

You see this site is not involved in either.  However with the Labor Day holiday so close and my background in and around unions I thought I would share a piece of information that has been set aside and possibly forgotten.  This little bit of history helps put work and family into perspective and changed the way I viewed “overtime” forever.…

Health and Nutrition: Your Body is Sending You Messages – Are You Listening?

All too often we consider “symptoms” as annoying or alarming and do our level best to shut them down – as quickly as possible! But what I would like you to consider is that symptoms are your body’s language! The way your Intelligently created body communicates what it needs is through symptoms. The symptom doesn’t always…
