My One Word 2013

Sick of the same old resolutions? 
Tired of boring goals which don't impact all areas of your life? 

Frustrated every February when you feel overwhelmed and vow to never make a New Year's Resolution again?

I've always been a resolution maker, but often felt like my tireless list of goals just wasn't working out for me anymore. And, if I cut the list to just a couple of things, it wasn't enough. So a couple of years ago I searched for a new way to approach this and I found the solution!

For two years now I've been able to focus all year long without feeling like a failure and without getting stressed! And the best part? It improves all areas of my life!

It's a powerful concept and it's called:

Year One: 
(that was hard)

Year Two:

(much easier and helpful with time management and focus)




My life hasn't always been a picnic, I'm sure you can relate to life's difficulties. Though our trials and tribulations most likely are very different, we all have some sort of mountain to climb or speed bump to get over.

Ever notice that you can't get through them if you're not POSITIVE????

Everything I do I want to do with positivity and certainty...
I want whatever I do in my life to have a positive affect on me, my children and others as well.

There is enough negativity in the world, so I want to be the one who helps counteract that.

Another reason My One Word will work for me is because when I make decisions I will only make them with conviction, I will only allow things into my life which will affect me positively and bring joy to my life...

Life is too short to be negative.
There are so many instances in life where the experience could be more joyful if we had a brighter outlook.


Try My One Word. I bet you'll have success with it! 
Come back and see my progress throughout the year!


Ask them what they would like to work on this year and let them pick One Word!

Back to School Anxiety: Bullying

Download “School Boy Being Stressed” by David Castillo Dominici via I recently wrote about how to help your child if they’re struggling with going back to school because they were bullied. My biggest most important tip was to listen, because I honestly could not write a ‘How-to-make-them-not-afraid’ column. Frankly I thought that was absurd. Fear is sometimes real. Anxiety is sometimes truly there, and for a good reason. Our job as parents isn’t to try to make it go away, it’s to try to find out the true source of those worrisome feelings. If you’d like to read more, click here. And if you’re child is struggling to find excitement about the new school year, don’t deny it, just accept it and move forward gently.

Green Punch Buggy....!!!!

Green Punch Buggy...No Punch Back! As I was writing this blog post, my son came to me showing off his Lego creation. And don't you know I got hit at least five times since on my computer screen was displaying at least five different punch buggies, of five different colors thanks to Google Images. (Bad timing I'm thinking...) How can we possibly have world peace with these silly cars in the world!? ;) Don't the owners of these cute-but-obnoxious-cars understand that driving these things around town promotes violence!? ;) Anyhow.... The original purpose of this blog was to ask parents everywhere this question: Do you find yourself saying 'PUNCH BUGGY *BLANK-COLOR*! '  to yourself, even when the kids are not in the car??? I do! Isn't it funny how those games we used to play as a child are still around? I bet our parents say the same thing.... HAPPY FRIIIIIIDAAAAYYYY! P.S. I got hit at least ten more times, since as my son stood beside

Good Customer Service At Home

Over the years, my careers have mainly been customer service based. I started in a family business and then moved on up through the rungs from waitress, to hostess, to sales associate, manager and eventually the GM of a hotel. In all my years, my training taught me that you should always do your best to take your customer all the way to what they need, make them happy, and never leave them until they are done with you. I pride myself on my customer service abilities. Though the other day, I think I failed at customer service in my own home! I was getting ready to cut my daughter's hair and because of how long it had gotten (she's been growing it out for a year!) I felt this time it would be best  if instead of me spritzing it with water, she could wash and condition it real quick. She was fully clothed so I just suggested she run into the bathroom and wash her hair in the tub. She’s fourteen. I suppose I just assumed that she knew how to kneel over the tub and do it.
