Can you possibly have as many distractions in your life as I do? 

I suppose a better question might be, who doesn’t? Thats just life these days.

I think if I had to give 2017 a name it would be titled “2017 The Year Of Distractions”.

I don’t know about you, but for me, it seems that the more I get myself together, the more I feel like I don’t have it together. Yea, think about that. Not easy to admit it but I think it may be true for many of us. Am I all alone in this?

There is so much vying for our attention that the minute we fix our eye’s on something that will lead to new growth and a better rela...

It can be a catch 22 because you want that boulder off your shoulders but the boulder is no lightweight pebble and can be too heavy to get it off of us without help.

What happens to you when you make a mistake and discover it? Moreover, I have to wonder what happens when you make another mistake right after the first one affecting the same group of people! People that you just met! Maybe that never happened to you but recently it happened to me. 

I told the story of my mistake to my marketing guru friend and she said, go write a blog about it and I thought that was a perfect idea and one I never would have thought of. Why is it perfect? Because in my past I would have never done such an embarrassing thing.  Listen, i’m not anything close to perfect and once up...

Doesn't it seem like we spend a ton of time waiting for something we've worked so hard on to come to fruition? We do all this work, and find all of this energy and motivation and we sit back and wait. And then we wait some more.

Maybe like me, you start to get a little impatient which eventually grows into frustration and suddenly you are jumping out of your skin because you just can't wait another minute for "IT" to happen...whatever IT is!

I think sometimes we learn the most while we wait. Whether we wait for a promotion or for our business to take off or even for pounds to drop or a failing rela...

Can you remember or identify that time in your life where you discovered that doing things the way you always have in the past just doesn't cut it anymore? What you thought was working either never did and you didn’t notice or suddenly, it has been brought to your attention. One day, either like a 2x4 whacked over your head or the culmination of lots of little messages it becomes intolerable. 

First comes your awareness. Then it seems to grow and fester and become a bigger problem or annoyance. Suddenly it's always in your face and you can see how much it might be hurting you and even others in yo...

One of the lessons I keep learning is that my view of things at times is significantly off. My story around my "stuff" is skewed. My belief system needs a complete reboot. How about you?

Frank and I had a good time together in the beginning of our relationship. He was an accepting, loving  and understanding man. His only issue was he had a drinking problem. I knew I was getting myself into trouble. I broke up with him early on and all it took was a mushy card with a sweet note to find my way back to him. 

I have always had these two sides to me. One was the escape artist and the other was the real me that spoke very quietly and secretly to me. That voice was such a whisper but it spoke to me saying, this is not who you are and you know it. It was clear, deep down on what...

So, if you remember, I ended part 2 of Growing up Sandy with such a dysfunctional view of myself and a totally skewed idea of what I was supposed to be in order to fit into the worlds expectations of me. I thought and believed, now that I was thin….that all was good in disillusionville (yes, I made that word up). 

Part 3 

Anyway, my unintentional goal became, let’s make up for lost dating/boy time. Let’s just say my judgement was off, my self respect was no longer a consideration. I’ll leave out most of the details except for a few key points. 

My part time job at the local Toys R Us for Christmas 1...

Good Girl Lost

Remember those early teen years where the whole world lay before you full of hope and opportunity? Here's what I remember about that time....oh and that's me in the middle in about 1976 in Manhattan. That might be the Manhattan Library. I have no idea what the sign was for.

Anyway, as a young teenager, I really was such a good kid in my heart like most of us are. Yet this good girl was starving for....well, anything, everything and more.

Sound familiar at all? Looking back now, I had plenty of friends and plenty of good times yet, always totally aware of my perception of never truly f...
