{Joyous Holidays} Emotional Funk Fix

by Africa
The holiday season typical brings forward an entire range of emotions for everyone. There is the general joy of the season, but also the added stress of dealing with family members you don’t see often, gift-giving, past issues, and other people’s emotional junk. I’m not saying that the holiday season is the only time these suckie emotions come shooting forward, I have a few other times of the year when I get triggered, only that the holidays seem to be a trigger for most of us. I do have a few friends and family members that just opt-out altogether. Yes, […]

{Joyous Holidays} Shape Your Legacy

by Africa
Over Thanksgiving, my step-brother said we were immortal. We’re not kids anymore, so I wasn’t really sure where he was headed with this notion. I know there was a time I thought I would live forever and could leap tall buildings in a single bound, but that isn’t today. Honestly, that hasn’t been for quite some time. I guess the hush in the room was finally too much, and he explained that we are immortal because of our children.

by Africa
Now for something completely different . . . no video. Don’t freak out!  I know it’s kinda weird.  Perhaps a little scary. I thought a change of pace was in order.  In just a few short days, I will celebrate my one year anniversary with my husband.  If you’ve read my about me, you know it was a rollercoaster ride to the altar.  No, not a Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Rollercoaster of Love and not on one of those awesome ones at the amusement park.  It was an emotional rollercoaster. At times business felt that way too – a crazy […]

Practicing Random Acts of Kindness

by Africa
I’m not proud of my actions, and I certainly would not want what happened to me, happen to you!  Today I share my epic fail.  What makes it worse is that it involved a random act of kindness. Did you ever have one of those moments where you are not sure what went wrong? You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late” – Emerson… Click To Tweet I’m interested in your thoughts about random acts of kindness.  Do you perform random acts of kindness?  If so, in what ways?  If […]
