Everyone Is A Celebrity

Everyone Is A Celebrity

Tweet   I spent the last two days at the Israeli Presidential Conference in Jerusalem. I was a first time attendee and didn’t really know what to expect other than the fact that there was an amazing lineup of top name speakers, worldwide activists as well as current and former politicians. I was also excited about finally getting to meet a lot of people in person whom I only knew online .   What is certain is that the … Read entire article »

If You Try, You Have Succeeded

If You Try, You Have Succeeded

Tweet   It takes a lot of guts to take the first step and try something new.   I think that what holds us back and keeps us from trying new things is expectations. The minute expectations are present we become more wary. We worry that we won’t live up to expectations, whether they be our own or others. We obsess about the way we think the outcome should appear.   Today my husband finally did something he has been wanting to … Read entire article »

Believe In Your Kids

Believe In Your Kids

Tweet There is wisdom all around us.   I think that part of the beauty of words is the fact that different people find different insights in the same words. Ten people can read one particular blog post and each can come away with a different conclusion or focus.   The other week I read a blog post by Erika Napoletano.  While I can’t recall how I came across her blog for the first time, her writing is really good … Read entire article »

If You Want Something Enough, You Might Just Get It

If You Want Something Enough, You Might Just Get It

Tweet I believe that when you want something enough, you either find a way to do it/buy it or sometimes, as if by magic (or with lots of persistant and annoying hinting), it ends up happening.   I also believe that at times, the things we think we want aren’t really what we want. That might explain why things we think we want we don’t get. (You may need to read that a few times before it makes … Read entire article »

Jump On Your Ideas

Jump On Your Ideas

Tweet I am a doer. (Unless it involves housework or anything to do with numbers and then I just pretend I didn’t see it.)   Tell me something needs doing and I will usually do it. Unfortunately that usually involves doing that one thing at the expense of everything else. I am lousy at trying to manage a number of projects at once. I can do it, it’s just that it involves more stress than is probably wise.   I … Read entire article »

Life Is Like Baseball

Life Is Like Baseball

Tweet It would appear that I have baseball on the mind, which is odd for me because it’s my husband and sons who are the baseball freaks. I personally can take it or leave it. Who am I kidding, I can just leave it.   On the other hand I am a bit excited right now about baseball, seeing as my youngest son is in Italy playing and pitching for the Israel National Baseball Team and my hubby … Read entire article »

Ask Or No One Can Say Yes

Ask Or No One Can Say Yes

Tweet How many times have you stopped yourself from asking for something because you were afraid the answer was going to be no?   There are quite a few no’s on the way to the land of yesses, but so what? Sure, there is that small matter of feeling rejected that no one likes to experience.  If you let it, it can bruise your ego and lower your confidence. However, the flip side is that even after the … Read entire article »
