Handling Hate

I am convinced that people are sleep walking. They are in a deep dream state of hate and prejudice and they won’t know it until someone wakes them out of it. Hate spells are frightening and awareness can only come from personal insight. America is known as the melting pot. A place that accepts all people, including our immigrant parents. Seems most people forget they are not born American but that their ancestors like parents, grandparents etc were privileged to be permitted to come into this country. Those people built our roads and our economy, and now all I see...


Respect and Social Media

If you are reading this, then your typical computer day probably starts a lot like mine. We log into social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram regularly, and we comment on what flows past in those streams. It's those comments that I feel a need to address as some of them respect the opinion of others, but most that I see are angry, judgmental and downright mean. In the real world, it's unlikely that anyone would ever speak as condescendingly, bullying for opinion, and with foul words to strangers they meet on the street. Yet, many think nothing...

Not too long ago I was invited to be interviewed by Buzzfeed for how the colors you paint your home can make a difference to your life when you make the right choices.

They had taken down the walls, so to speak, and embraced an open concept in the workplace. Though I was impressed with this accomplishment, and I realized that this...

There doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day to read everything one is supposed to read to be more effective in their jobs and day-to-day living. We are hit with social media reading material, posts, memes, articles, blogs and news around the clock. There is no breathing room, or break from it. The expression “need to know” no longer applies and the more inundated we are by this myriad of letters sent our way to form words, the more stress we take into our lives. When does it end? We are living in a time where people do...


The Clutches of the World Wide Web ~ Medium.com

Tags internet, social media, technology

You woke up today and what was the very first thing you did? Most likely, if you arereading this on line, you looked at your email, checked your social media and before you knew it the time had escaped you. Instead of Living, you were posting, all morning long! Posting and commenting on photos, tags, inspirational quotes, disgruntled political statements, satire, etc. There is no end to that because there is no end to the Internet. It is indeed a web and once it grabs you, it holds you in its grasp and ensnares you with information at a fast...
