Conservative or Liberal: How To Stay Friends When You are Total Opposites

I have to admit I am conservative in my views on issues in general and very proud of it. I am open to other's viewpoints, and yet I value my own. I simply cannot stand "wishy washy" people; they are the worst kind of people to be around, always changing their minds like the direction of the wind or changing their opinion to please whomever comes into the room. I have many friends who are liberals. They have their opinions and I have mine, and yet, we seem to get along. How is that so? How is it that we can stay friends when we have such opposite views?...more

HOW I CLEANED UP MY FACEBOOK PAGE......The Art to Unfriending.....

I guess I was like most people who had no clue what they were doing when they first got hooked up with Social Media......Truly I had no idea what Facebook was about or how to even do it......About 5 years ago my husband suggested to me that I should get a Facebook account....I said "What's Facebook....?".....So one evening when I was relaxing I went and opened up an account.....I had no profile photo (now it seems I have way too many) and only 2 FB friends to start off with.........more

POLITICALLY INCORRECT........Why I am not a Feminist......

A lot of my friends think I am politically incorrect......but then I also think I am politically incorrect......In other words I tend to say what I think rather than say what everyone else wants to hear.......I feel our society has become so consumed in  saying only what they think will be approved of by the majority and most people avoid what would be ridiculed by those who seem to "bully" opposing views........more

WHY SO MANY LOVED.....JOAN RIVERS....

I simply loved Joan Rivers......but I really didn't  fully discover her till after she tragically "passed" recently.....I listened to her on Johnny Carson years ago and thought her to be so funny and yet it wasn't until recently that I discovered all the wonderful dimensions of who she was....She truly was an amazing woman.....A woman who overcame many obstacles to achieve the level of success she achieved....Yes, she was most often politically incorrect...but then that is why so many loved her....She said what others were thinking, but simply too afraid to say what was on their minds....more

MY FINAL BLOG.....or IS IT.....? .........GETTING TO YES........WHEN YOU MAKE A MISTAKE.....

GETTING TO YES…….Getting what we want in life often requires us to do the work to make it happen……Getting to YES in life in any negotiation of any kind can seem like climbing a steep mountain in flip flops….Every inch of the way is difficult….And yet, when we are determined and want to get a yes we will most often come up with every way possible to make a Yes happen…....more

TAKE THE TIME TO LAUGH.....AN UNCERTAIN MOMENT......DON'T LET ONE NEGATIVE EVENT DEFINE YOUR RELATIONSHP....GO HAVE FUN....

AN UNCERTAIN MOMENT…We all have those moments in life where we simply don’t know what the future holds in some area or areas of our lives….Those moments of watiting to see how it all turns out. Those moments can be some of the hardest….those waiting moments…...more

A CLASSY ANSWER....WHEN TO SAY NOTHING......WHAT IS CLOGGING UP YOUR LIFE and YOUR DREAMS.....WHEN NOT TO BEND.....

A CLASSY ANSWER….Often we can be put on the spot with someone who simply is looking for us to say something negative….Someone who simply wants us to join in the verbal “beating someone up….” People pull others into conversations that normally they would never enter into…but somehow they get caught off guard and fall right into the negativity that the other person is promoting….So how do we respond….?...more

OLD FRIENDS/NEW FRIENDS.....WHATS CLOGGING YOUR DRAINS?...GET PRESENT.....A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN....CHOICES....PROMISES.....

OLD FRIENDS NEW FRIENDS….I love my old friends that have stayed in my life on purpose….I love my new friends that have entered or will enter….Both give me perspective that the other cannot give….My old friends tell me who I was and the travels I have been on. We laughed together and cried together and built our dreams together……When life sort of took us on separate roads we still remained friends as I merged into new trafffic to meet new people with different personalities….....more

GOOD SURPRISES....BELIEVING THAT YOU CAN......THE DEVIL AND THE COMPUTER....RISE ABOVE THE LAUGHTER.....COMMON SENSE.......

BELIEVING IS HALF OF GETTING THERE…..So much of achieving our dreams is simply believing that we can achieve it…..All things start with an idea….an idea that it is possible to achieve. We don’t act on things we know we cannot create…but we do act on things and beliefs that we can create…..It all starts with a belief…..Without believing that we can create what it is we want we will never know if we can….for it takes belief to push us out there into the world to make things happen…....more

MOTHERHOOD.....HAS PUBLIC SCHOOL LOST IT'S MIND?....HOMESCHOOLING...

MOTHERS…..Today is Mother’s Day and so I find it appropriate to celebrate Mothers on this day….but the truth is we should be celebrating Mothers everyday…..For Mothers are the ones that shape a child’s life the most…..Mothers are the ones that simply take what God has given to them as a gift and proceed to shape their life throughout their lifetime…....more
