Beauty For Ashes & Healthy Changes

Facebook has implemented the new Timeline. I have to admit, I was not too excited about the change. Just as I get used to the "new way" of doing things, it all has to change. But I have forged ahead, trying to make the best of it. I truly did NOT like the idea of going back and looking at what I've posted in years past. Who wants to look at all the yucky status updates we've posted???

And for Facebook themselves, there's alot of negatives attached to them. But I have to admit, I think the Timeline theme was a good move. For me, at least.

You see, this was not the best year for me in respect to health and some personal challenges. And as much as I don't care to go back and look at 2011, I needed to go back. And you know what?? I saw so many WONDERFUL blessings!!! Even the ashes were beautiful!!

"Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and …

Age Is Just a Number. It's What's Inside That Counts!

I turned 50 this summer! I can’t believe I am 50 years old!!
I was just a little girl not too long ago! I was just 18 a few years ago!

Looking for something cute online to express how I felt about entering this new decade and saying goodbye to the last one, I found a quote and decided to make it part of my profile pic.

Age Is Just a Number

I am thankful that I am in good health. Sure, I could stand to lose a few pounds, but aside from my replacing my nearsightedness for farsight and a healing ulcer, I want to keep it that way.
So I am pumping the probiotics and going gluten free!!

And like all the Hispanic women before me, I will always stay a brunette ; )

My friend in the background is a CRACK UP!!

Blogging tips for the new and frequent blogger

So I've been working on my other blog Spin That 45 and so far, it has been an amazing ride!!

I LOVE blogging, there is no doubt about that!! But since I've been reviewing new music and talking about the latest on who to listen to and what, I've been feeling this need to want MORE!!

Give me MORE. . . MORE READERS!!!

So. . . how to go about that!?

Isn't it cool how when you think about something that you want, somehow, THINGS start to happen in a way that you least expect it?

Take for example, spending a morning with Life Coaches' Laurie Hardie & Suzette Parker, who host a radio program called "Coffee with The Coaches." They had invited me to sit in with them at a local coffee house where I met some lovely ladies, including one Marlee Huber.

Through our conversations which centered around the "treasure maps" the ladies brought, the "HOW TO" of how to get there came up. And of course, BLOGGING was high on the list.

Marlee mentioned her n…

It's The Time of the Season

There have been so many changes in my life these last couple of years, which is probably why I haven't been blogging. . . apologies.

My 50's are FAST approaching!!! Perimenopause is in full gear, people!! And it should be, as most of my friends are not only done with perimenopause, but menopause itself!! HA!!

Another change. . . my professional life!

Professional life. . hmm. . .it seems funny to even say that!! Because, I've never really HAD a professional life.

Sure, I've worked since the time I was 8 years old, babysitting, then at 12, working as a hostess at El Torito and other various jobs. Then at GTE for 10 years. But those were never "careers." As a wife and mother, homeschooler, etc, I would joke and say that my career was as "Domestic Engineer."

Everything in our lives is, I believe, training or stepping stones to the next thing. So I suppose one could say, I've been training for this season all my life. : )
