Breathe!

Omg! It’s the count down and Christmas is almost here. Next thing you know, it will be 2020. How are you handling the hustle and bustle of the holiday season? If you’re like me, you are feeling a little overwhelmed. Having fewer days this year between Thanksgiving and Christmas has made the process of getting … Read more

Joy

In writing this post, I decided to first look at the definition of joy. I had always thought that happiness and joy were similar or the same, but have come to find that these feelings are very different. Joy comes when you make peace with who you are, why you are and how you are. … Read more

Fearless Women

Simply, the definition of being fearless is someone who is not afraid to face his or her fears. I admire anyone who is fearless, especially women. Women who are brave and courageous have a quality that enables them to face life’s challenges without showing fear. This doesn’t mean that you won’t have moments of feeling … Read more

Letter To My Daughters

My  Dear Daughters, There’s so much that I want to say. I hope that I’m as much of an inspiration for you both as you both have been for me. I’m inspired to be a better person because of you. The creation of Walking Through Life As Women is my dedication to you both. You’re … Read more

Ordinary Moments

Why can’t an ordinary moment be as special as an extraordinary moment? There’s so much to find joy in and appreciate in every day. Why wait for a special occasion or event? Take time to see the beauty that surrounds you. Don’t make the mistake of waiting until everything is going well before you can … Read more

#MeToo

As we all know, Me Too is a movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault. This movement keeps growing, the stories keep coming, and more women (and men) are finding the courage to speak up. I don’t think any of us have a sense of the magnitude of the problem. I’ve dealt with it. Early … Read more

They’re reminders to slow down, to notice the little things, to not take things for granted, and to be present. When I … Read more

Making It Happen

I’m all about making it happen but translating a dream into reality is never easy. Setting up goals, putting those goals on paper and implementing (if you know how) those goals can strip you of your energy but hopefully not your passion and vision. Sometimes getting from point A to point B can be a … Read more

Why Isn’t Your Glass Half Full?

Have you ever been around a friend or family member who is so negative that you find it hard to be around that person? I have. I want to support them, but after a while, it gets to be a bit draining. And, I tell myself that I care (and I do) but sometimes I … Read more

Women Friends

I’m writing this post because I recently went through something where I needed support and I needed someone to talk to. My women friends were there and are still there to give me support….a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, and offering advice that I need to hear. It’s wonderful to know that no … Read more
