Are you getting enough?

How much is enough

  Okay, get your minds outta the gutter here! I’m talking about water, you know, good old H2O? Whenever I hear multiple messages about the same topic I start to feel like I’m meant to pay closer attention. Like I’m being hit over the head with it. Lately I’ve been hearing a lot of people talk about how much water you should drink. I get it; most of us don’t drink enough water. In fact, most of us are actually pretty dehydrated and have habitually been in that state for a … [Read more...]

Remember how far you’ve come!

wooden bridge

  Remember how far you've come; not just how far you have to go. No way! Those were my thoughts when I learned that I was going to need to speak in front of an audience… This is my story, the story of how I achieved something I believed impossible. Almost two years ago, I decided to embark on a new journey. The journey of starting a business…little did I know that I was going to need a lot more than just talent and willingness. I took a course and got my designation as an … [Read more...]

Do You Have a Plan B?

Plan B

    I can’t believe that it’s been 5 years since my divorce and the beginning of the creation of Woman’s InSite. So much has transpired in my life since then. I had no idea where this website would take me. If you had asked me where I wanted to be in 5 years, most of what I’m doing now wouldn’t have even been on my radar. I certainly didn’t have the confidence to think that I could do many of things that I do now. I had no plans to be a speaker, author of a book, … [Read more...]

Failure to Lunch

  “I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” Michael Jordan Houston, we have a problem! When is the last time you had to debate with yourself about going to lunch? O.K., I don't see too many hands raised. When is the last time you debated going to workout? O.K., pretty much the room chuckled and raised a hand…some raised both. Getting and staying in shape is an ongoing issue that we all face. Once January rolls around the “new” New … [Read more...]

Weight Gain vs Abdominal Separation After giving birth to your precious bundle of joy, it's not uncommon to struggle with getting rid of the mommy tummy. There should have been some weight gain during the … [Read more...]

Knowledge, is it a good thing?

Woman-thinking

Recently I was thinking about all that I’ve learned since starting this website nearly 5 years ago. When I think about the fact that the only thing I knew how to do on a computer when I started was how to send an email, it makes me wonder about my sanity at the time. What was I thinking? I mean how in the world did I think I’d be able to run a computer-based business? I had NONE of the skills needed to make it work. All I had was desire, drive and determination.   Just because I … [Read more...]

Press On

Climbing to the mountaintop

The landscape of our life is full of mountains and valleys. We mature with every step we take along our journey and become wiser and stronger for it. We’re constantly improving and growing. When we stop doing that, our purpose here is complete.   When facing the valleys of life, it can be very seductive to just settle in and have a pity party. Many times people cave into the temptation and stay in that frame of mind for a while. They lie down and cry and keep crying until they’ve … [Read more...]
