Recently I had a conversation with a friend and I mentioned that there are times when I feel stupid. Usually it’s when I’m watching the news channels and the topic of International relations and foreign policy comes up. My friend tried to reassure me by saying that “most Americans are ignorant to the real issues in other countries” and that “I know a lot more than most”. Let me tell you that getting the highest grade on a test that I still fail is no reason to celebrate.
Before we get into ways to get out of a bad relationship; we must first identify what one looks like. Now I’m not talking about the obvious “bad” aka “dangerous” physical and emotional abuse riddled ones that shelters are built for. I’m talking about the silent dream-killer, hope stealer, words-DO-hurt relationships.
It seems the older we get the more difficult it becomes right? Meeting people is easy, we do that every day, but what about forming a new connection, a bond with someone that we didn’t know, never heard about, met by chance and hit it off with immediately?
The other day, while riding in the car with my bff/driver/business partner/baby daddy/husband I asked the question, what do you think I should blog about next? Without missing a beat and totally unrelated to our previous conversation he says “Why some people should never get married”.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the DRAMA of things when you do not have a clear vision of where you are going and the experiences that you want to have along the way. I’ve been recently tested and for a spit second, I found myself LOOKING for all the reasons and explanations to explain SOMEONE ELSE’s words and behaviors.
Has anyone else noticed that we have become a society of “haters”? Now by “we”, of course, I mean “them”. Because none of “us” would set our DVR’s to record those reality Housewives shows only to be able to talk about the rachet’ness of the women on them.
If you’ve been thinking about making a major change in your life, transitioning into another job or industry, starting your first or next new business or you want a new perspective on a question or issue that you don’t want to discuss with your family, friends or co-workers; securing a coach may be just the thing you need to kick start your next venture into gear.

Before you turn the big number with a zero behind it and start feeling some type of way about “getting OLDER”, you should consider the perks and plusses of getting old. Surely this will give ME something to look forward to during the next 90 days…or will it?
