“And I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, ‘If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.” – Kurt Vonnegut

I was talking to my amazing friend, Kristen, last week. It was her birthday. (Happy birthday!) We started talking about what you do when your dreams and wishes come come true.  We all know what it’s like before that moment. I’ll use my first book as an example. I’ve wanted to be an author since I was 6 years old. I was discouraged because it wasn’t a secure and steady job, so I didn’t pursue it in earnest until I was 40. I know what disappointment in regard to dreams is like – it got turned down twice before it …

My friend, Paige, had a giveaway on her website for the Divina Journal for Magical Babes.  I’m not a big journaler, and I’m not usually drawn to stuff like this but I couldn’t stop looking at it. So I entered the thinger, encouraged my friends to try and I lost. πŸ™‚ BUT my friend Keva won! And she’s amazing.

I have pretty strong feelings about gossip.  It pisses me off.  I don’t know if it’s because of my 20+ years as a social worker (confidentiality!) or my 30ish years reading tarot (confidentiality!!), but I just.  Don’t.  Like.  It. I was in my 30’s, in fact, before I realized that people talked about me after I left a room.  I suppose I never thought about it.  Why would people talk about me?  I’m approachable and open to conversations.  It just never occurred to me that I would be that much food for conversation, I suppose.  The way that I realized that …
