Are You Really Alone?

Hi friend, Yesterday I was going to write the most amazing blog post - you inspired me. Why? Because I only write about what I know, and everything you said resonated with me. “I know that.” I thought to myself. “Yes, I’ve felt that way too.” I had a consoling platitude for everything you said. [...]

September – Decision Making Time

Photo by Irina on Unsplash September. Labour Day. A day of transition (understatement). If you are a parent to school-aged children, September can be a bit much (I'm polite here).

Communication – Rules for Life

There is usually a reason someone chooses to become an accountant and that reason is usually because numbers are so straight-forward. They are clear and concise, easy to line up, sort and deal with. They are usually associated with projects and with decisions that have very [...]

Time

I start new posts all the time.  These posts are usually about time. I say start because I often run out of time and never finish these posts I've started. Actually - my post attempts are getting less and less frequent. Why is that? I don't have time to even start posts these days. I realized [...]

This is Kitty                 And this is Kitty out enjoying nature.  "Uh - looks like fireman Lego with a Darth Vader Lego cape and falling off headphones." That's what you think. Oh how wrong you are. Kitty (and Kitty is the combination of Lego man and the cat [...]
