From the Publisher - November 2015

Every year as the holidays approach, my heart longs for meaning, connection and peace. For me, the holidays are usually a series of chores, hurriedly getting done in between deadlines and commitments. With my task driven head overruling my longing for joy heart, the holidays, quite frankly, never live up to the expectation of “it’s a wonderful life.”

When I set out to start my publishing company, which now consists of Pink, Paisley and LIZ magazines, I was unsure, unknowing and downright scared. However, I was also excited and filled with dreams. In fact, my mantra was “Don’t let anyone steal your dreams.” I was adamant about it. These were my fighting words, my strategy and my anchor. Whenever I was the keynote speaker at events, my entire talk was usually centered around, “Don’t let anyone steal your dreams.”

Plus Size, My Ass!

Hissy Fit - September 2015

As a former fat woman, I am still mad about how limited my options were to finding cool, stylish clothing when I was a size 20. One of the best things about being 67 pounds lighter is the endless options for clothing choices. But, that is only because I have gotten myself well below a size 14. Did you know there are certain brands, which I won’t call by name, that only make clothing up to a size 12? If you are bigger than that, I suppose they would prefer you not defile their style.

Now that it is September, most students have been back in school long enough to be getting comfortable in their routines. While the thought of learning, exploring and studying doesn’t provoke a lot of excitement in most kids, the fact of the matter is they will know more by the holidays than they know today. Gaining knowledge is a side effect of school, even for those who don’t try very hard.

Shaking My Head...Sometimes It's All You Can Do

Hissy Fit - August 2015

SMH is an acronym that stands for “shaking my head” and is usually used in texting or on social media. According to Urban Dictionary, SMH is used when someone finds something so stupid, no words can do it justice. Lately, I have encountered a few SMH moments, which I would like to get off my chest because, quite frankly, shaking my head is not working and I’m hoping words can clear the air once and for all.
