My morning routine look something like this: At about 5:50 a.m. my dog, Cookie, steps onto my chest, stares into my face, then licks me vigorously until I get up. I check my e-mail on my iPad then stumble into the bathroom to refresh myself and style my out-of-control curly hair. It’s then to the kitchen to brew a pot of coffee and prepare Cookie’s breakfast (a three-course affair) and give her medication. I sit down to enjoy a mug of coffee and read The New York Times for about 45 minutes, then get dressed, put on make up, make the bed, brush Cookie, and sometimes get a wash going. It’s then back more

Criticism…Can You Take It?

Posted on January 30, 2016 11:55 am

Not always to be honest. I’m a tad sensitive to criticism, as it can put me on the defensive. I think it is partly due to the fact that I am always striving to do things exceptionally well, so getting criticized means that I have not measured up to my own expectations or to the expectations of others. But I am also aware that who is doing the criticizing plays a role in how I react. I am not keen on family members criticizing me, as there is the emotional element attached to that. If friends or business acquaintances are critical of me, the initial sting is still there, but I then push myself to react differently. I want to see if there is any merit to the criticism so that I can benefit from it or use it to repair or improve a situation or relationship. more

Now that the first major holiday of the season—Thanksgiving—is over, you’re getting ready for THE BIG ONE!

Self-Limiting Beliefs…Give ‘em the Boot!

Posted on April 10, 2014 03:42 pm

• I’ll never make enough money • I’ll never find my soul mate • I’ll never lose the weight Any of these sound familiar? They are known as self-limiting beliefs, and many of us have at least one of them. They may be delivered as facts but are anything but. They are instead beliefs, opinions, or assumptions we have about ourselves that seem unshakable and the absolute truth. But they are only true because we have decided they are and believe that nothing can shake them. The bad news is that these beliefs declare that nothing will ever change, or we don’t deserve anything better. Recall the term self-fulfilling prophesy? If you believe that something will never happen, well you can be sure it won’t. You are setting yourself up for failure and when it comes, maybe it will even feel good in some strange way, knowing that you were right about nothing changing. The big problem with self-limiting beliefs is that they can greatly limit your ability to achieve your goals and attain success, as they pretty much strip us of the power to change what is. more

Life Stressing You Out? Change Your Perspective!

Posted on May 21, 2012 08:35 pm

Since my mom moved back to New York, visiting her has become a happy part of my weekly routine. It so happens, however, that the neighborhood in which she lives is not the easiest to park in and my parallel parking skills are not as sharp as they used to be. There is also the issue that I park better on the left side of the street than on the right side, reducing my chances by 50 percent. So each week while driving to Brooklyn I found myself fretting over not only how long it would take me to find a spot but also how would I manage to park the darn car. more
