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).…

Write for Us

Write for Us

Hey Ya’ll

When I was a little girl I never once thought or said “When I grow up, I want to be a writer.”

I still haven’t.

If anything writing causes me extreme anxiety and I have little confidence that I am writing stuff that people actually want to hear.  I just can’t seem to find an authentic voice that is entertaining, informative and encouraging enough to others.

I guess that’s the keyword…. ENOUGH

So, I am happily seeking others who love to write, love to connect with people through their words and want to help them with insight, facts and stories with an emphasis on positive thinking, self help, raising teenagers, being a teenager, life lessons, inspiration and motivation.…

tips to promote a positive body image

“Do you think I’m fat?”


I think this has got to be one of the worst things a parent can hear but it is happening more and more these days and particularly from our daughters.

At what age do you think girls start having thoughts of weight and comparing themselves to what they see in the media?

Well, apparently negative body image starts pretty darn early:

  • 42% of 1st to 3rd grade girls (yup, you read that right) want to be thinner reports the National Association for Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders, ANAD.ORG
  • 40% of 9 and 10 year old girls have tried to lose weight
  • 53% of 13 year old girls are “unhappy with their bodies” and this grows into 78% by the time girls reach 17 years old
  • 81% of 10 year old girls are afraid of being fat
  • the amount of time an adolescent watches television, movies and music videos is associated with their degree of body dissatisfaction and desire to be thin
  • one in every three (37%) articles in leading teen girl magazines include focus on appearance and most advertisements (50%) use and appeal to beauty to sell their products
