"You will always be successful." I read it in a #fortunecookie, and it's true. #success

I have written many posts on success. Apparently, fortune cookies have a lot of advice to give on the topic. What does success mean? Many people think success is attaining great wealth or power. We might get the impression from television and the media…

Check out my entries for the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman 25th Anniversary Logo Contest.

I love the outdoors. Because of this, I spend as much time as possible doing fun outdoor activities. A couple of years ago, I was introduced to the NYS Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program. The program is part of the Department of Environmental…

“Be prepared.” Lieutenant-General Baden-Powell first coined the term in 1907. It later became the motto for the Boy Scouts of America. Baden-Powell wrote that the motto means, “you are always in a state of readiness in mind and body to do your duty.” In…

There's more to music than meets the ear. Find out what in this week's post. #fortunecookie #music #space #therapy

Life is better when you're laughing. A few "ha ha ha's" can make it less blah blah blah. #fortunecookie #laughing

Christmas is around the corner, and everywhere I go I see Santa Claus. He’s at the mall, on the street corner, even on television. Sometimes he’s by himself and other times Mrs. Claus or elves are with him.  I noticed that Santa always seems happy. If you…

Your success will astonish everyone. Once you recognize what it is, it will even astonish you. #fortunecookie @talentsmarteq

When I was in high school, I considered trying out for the cheerleading team. I learned the cheers, performed the moves well, and was tiny and loved to climb—perfect for the top of any pyramid. I thought, as a freshman, this would be a great group to…

Wish you had more #confidence? Learn how to gain some without the help of a genie. #fortunecookie

I love the animated movie Aladdin (1992). There are so many life lessons in the film: be honest to ourselves and others, society does not define who we are, be careful what we wish for, and all that matters is who we are on the inside. Practicing these…

When it comes to looking for #advice, sometimes we should take our own. #fortunecookie #SolomonParadox

My Fortune Cookie Friday posts come in many forms. Some are about me and my life. Other posts are about health or politics. It’s not surprising that I should have a few on advice. Today’s fortune reminded me of an article in Forbes. Igor Grossmann, an…

A refreshing change is in your future, especially if you have a little quiet time. #fortunecookie #relax #Quiettime

Imagine we’re walking down a winding path in the woods. The dappled light seeps through the branches above. The wind rustling through the trees, the twittering of tiny birds, and the low ripple of a hidden brook overshadow our padded footfalls. How does…

If doing your best is about quality, consider the Project Management Triangle, even with the simple tasks in life. #fortunecookie

“Do your best.” That is what we have been told since we were children. We should do our best at whatever we do, be it school, sports, or art. If we follow this supposedly simple premise, we won’t be disappointed in the results. Is it really that simple?…
