You may have guessed (or already know) that my keyword for this year is “Energy.”  I have many goals, and I am at a point in my life where I need to make them happen.  I don’t want to wait for a better time.  Even if it takes years to reach a goal, the time to start is now.

My morning mantra will be- “Let me get moving.”  That’s a great start for energy.  Of course, I’ve charted out some things I have to do.  Stretches to get limber and not feel old or sore all day.  I intend that to become like second nature to me.  Then the list goes on.

I’ve done this because I read somewhere that a resolution is nothing without a plan.  This is so true!  Working a full-time job can tire a person out.  Yet, I want to…

Review of 180 Seconds by Jessica Park

The Cozy Pages

So someone may have discovered a new favourite author.  I have to read another book by Jessica Park ASAP.  180 Seconds was wonderful. It was romantic, poignant, heart wrenching, funny and topical.   How can one book be all of that in just about 300 pages?!

Some people live their entire lives without changing their perspective. For Allison Dennis, all it takes is 180 seconds…

After a life spent bouncing from one foster home to the next, Allison is determined to keep others at arm’s length. Adopted at sixteen, she knows better than to believe in the permanence of anything. But as she begins her third year in college, she finds it increasingly difficult to disappear into the white noise pouring from her earbuds.

One unsuspecting afternoon, Allison is roped into a social experiment just off campus. Suddenly, she finds herself in front of a crowd, forced to interact with a…

5 Reasons You Can’t Break The Cycle Of Living Paycheck To Paycheck

Elena Peters

On my drive back from yet another Christmas meal with family yesterday, 3 turkeys in 3 days, I could not help but notice the 5 mile long traffic jam surrounding every shopping mall I passed. I realize that it is Boxing Day and that I have seen some great deals in the flyers but holy cow, you couldn’t pay me to sit in traffic, fight for a parking spot, and stand in line to pay (or credit) something else I don’t really need or can’t afford.

Sure, I would love a new computer or a larger screen TV for our family room (Our 40 inch seems tiny compared to today’s standards). I certainly have enough actual cash in my hands right now and lots of room on my credit cards. So why not? I deserve it right? And honestly, yesterday morning while sitting at my old, slow computer, I was…

Thankful Thursday – Trust

Purrseidon

P1180764Dear Furiends,

Living in this multi-species household, I think trust is important. Having someone you trust is something to be thankful for. That is why this post is purrticipating in Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I have been hearing that word for months, mainly as it pertains to dogs and how their trust is unconditional… I can not abide the thought of a dog being better than a cat at something.th

Adrian Savage wrote an article that said, “Trust is fundamental to life. If you cannot trust in anything or anyone, life becomes a constant battle against paranoia and looming disaster. You can’t have relationships without trust, let alone good ones. Intimacy depends on it. I suspect more marriages are wrecked by lack of trust than by actual infidelity. The partner who can’t trust the other not to betray him or her will either drive them away or…

From Growth to Gold Medal!

HorseAddict

In the spring of 2012 Charlotte Dujardin, and her horse Valegro, came to Florida to compete in the Dressage Masters at the Jim Brandon Center.  Some of us had heard of her but she was not well  known outside of her native England. From what we saw  we were impressed and we knew she would be a contender. But we did not know how exponential that  growth would be.

Charlotte and Valegro warm up for the GP

London Olympics, August,  2012. I was lucky enough to be there with 22,000 other people to see this.
