I’m a natural list maker.  I make daily to do lists, grocery lists, repair lists, kids activity lists, places I want to eat at list, favorite wine lists… you get the picture.

One of my favorite lists to add to is THINGS TO TELL YOUR KIDS.  Here’s what’s on it right now:

  • always be yourself
  • think positive
  • don’t hit your sister
  • find the good in every situation
  • respect yourself and others
  • I love you even when you are a butt head
  • try it, you might just like it
  • do the right thing even if someone isn’t watching
  • listen
  • do even the small things with pride, like making your bed
  • tell the people you love that you love them daily
  • work hard and then even harder
  • learn from your mistakes
  • make a difference

What are things you tell your children?  What are things you think all children need to hear?

Leave us your comments because we actually want to hear them and share them.


Meryl Streep’s Awesome Advise on Body Image

meryl streep



It’s good to have strong women from Hollywood speaking about body image.   Our culture spends a lot of time and money promoting an unrealistic and unhealthy skinny body image for girls, and as a result,  many girls spend a lot of time worrying about their weight and having a poor body image.

Meryl Streep advises not to spend time worrying about your weight because there are better things.  She believes that for both young men and women, what makes you different or weird is your strength.

Hallelujah!  She is so right.

be different

be weird

Give up the worry about weight.

She thinks everyone tries to look a cookie cutter way, but those who are different are the ones who stand out and get picked.  Take this advice to heart… she’s been in the spotlight for many years and wildly successful.

Instead of comparing yourself to the girl in the photo or ads of your favorite clothing store and then filling your thoughts of how you can achieve that same look.  Spend that time growing your talents and skills.  Spend that time doing things that you love.  Spend that time helping others.  You have value right here and now just the way your are.



you are just twenty minutes away from feeling good about yourself

Do you want to know why I think you are just twenty minutes away from feeling good about yourself?

It’s something very simple and something we all need.





Have you heard of TED Talks?

A mindful friend sent me a note with a link to Brene’ Brown’s TED Talk about the power of vulnerability a few months ago and now it’s my turn to recommend this amazing resource.

If it finds only one person who didn’t know about TED Talks and who is curious to learn more, then I would be thrilled.

I find myself now spending time viewing TED Talks in lieu of watching the Walking Dead (I know I know).  With over 30,000+ videos on topics from technology, science, entertainment, business, design and global issues, there is so much you can explore.

There is so much you can feed your brain, your soul, your sense of curiosity with watching a few TED Talks.

A TED Talk typically runs twenty minutes and once you are done with it you’ll find yourself browsing other topics and talking about what you’ve learned.

Here is a short list of personal favorites and most popular talks

Ken Robinson’s talk How schools are kill creativity is about creating an educational system that fosters creativity

Amy Cuddy’s talk How your body language shapes who you are
