Perfectionism has robbed me of so much. So much time. So much energy. And so much of my LIFE! If you’re at all a perfectionist, you can perfectly relate. I will tell you, that – at once – it is a quality that has catapulted me to fabulous victories and paralyzed me into frozen inaction.…

SIXTY SECONDS, PRICELESS PAYBACK You really need to take a couple minutes to look at this. Couple of minutes = a spirit inspired. A Life EMPOWERED. And the payback on that, well, priceless. And since we all know ALL women and ALL moms work, (Dads too, frankly), so I wanted to share this from WomenWorking.com. A great…
It’s sweltering outside!
Time to shed some clothes and have some summer fun!
So what will you do today? Some fun in the sun and Swimming?
How ’bout the grill. Throw on some hot dogs… which leads me to what I wanna do.
I wanna jump naked on a trampoline. And Dance. But lots of jumping. High. And do flips. And toe-touches.
Here’s why it’s so important… and why it can dramatically change your life for the better.
Good- byes. Good-byes are tough. They tug at the tears and seem to leave an empty place in your heart. “But for a TV SHOW??”, I ask myself – almost ashamed. But this is not just a TV show, this is Oprah. And it’s been 25 years. My entire adult life, plus some. But now…
I just recently told you about James Tate.
According to Connecticut teen James Tate, he thought a written invitation would garner his a “Yes” from his date… here’s how he did it… giant letters on the side of the building at Shelton High School.
After seeing Tate’s invitation on the building, school officials banned the teen from the Prom altogether.
It triggered an international controversy and HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS exploded a digital revolt!
The web was ON FIRE and exploded.
School officials had NO IDEA of the giant social media beast they’d awakened. And you’ve GOT to see what’s happened since!

I’m so excited I was able to take part and to help out with Media coverage…. check out some of the other juicy details with my exclusive behind-the-scenes access.
But Friday night was just the tip beginning of a star-studded affair, the excitement was only just beginning and you won’t believe all the events.
We hear the word a lot these days. Everywhere. But what is it?
How can you get inspired or find inspiration? That burn-in-your-gut kind of passion.
It’s not a destination. But it does begin a journey.
Here’s a few secrets about inspiration. If you truly delve into the possibilites, it will change your life.
I was on the phone yesterday doing an interview for a story when I mentioned that I’m going to be a stay at home mom with Harper, rather than finding another job. The
woman I was speaking with was a well accomplished Manhattan attorney — and mom. “Well, don’t stay home for your kids,” she told me. “They won’t remember. Make sure you do it for yourself.”
She said that when she told her 23-year-old daughter that she’d stayed home with her Saturday nights because she couldn’t bear to leave her, the daughter deadpanned: “That was stupid.”
A reader on MommyMoi recently left me a similar comment: “All I know is that FOR ME, the nine years I stayed home with my children (mainly because of unemployment) were not good. I love being at work, and my children (now 13, 15 and 17) don’t even remember that I was ever home. They understand that I love my job just about as much as I love them. Of course, I was able to arrange my hours so I could be home in the evenings. Most studies I have seen indicate that children benefit most from parents who are happy, so you have to decide what will make you happiest. For me, it was definitely work outside the home!”
