Finding My Inner Boy

For five years I was a mom to a girl. This meant that I spent a lot of time thinking pink and sparkles. Most of my play time with my child was spent playing with her baby dolls, having tea parties, or painting her cute little toes. I was comfortable with this role as a mom. I am a girl. I understood her and what she would like. Plus, come on, what mom does not love getting to be a dance mom and being backstage at ballet recitals with their daughter? It was a dream come true!

New Year, New Day, New Chance

Each New Year, we make resolutions. We pledge to reinvent or transform ourselves into a better, faster, stronger, less cursing, more praising, highly philanthropic, in-the-moment person. While our intentions may be good, our goals are often too lofty and our willpower is too low. Without a good plan, many of us will fail or abandon our resolutions. In fact, only about 50% of people keep their New Year’s resolutions for three months, and even less keep them for six months.
