Out with the Old, In with the New

by Teresa Smith on January 5, 2015

It’s the beginning of a new year. Out with the old and in with the new. Don’t we all wish it could be that easy. Don’t you wish that with the each new year, new month or even each new day… you could fully let go of things that don’t serve you anymore and embrace [...]

A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine told me about a park that is an hour and a half away. The park had wolves, otters, raptors and a planetarium. This place sounded like a great road trip for the day so I headed out in my car with a friend Saturday morning to [...]

I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving. It’s nice to be away from our regular work routines.  However, if you were like me…you traded one type of work for another. Wednesday night I was up cooking until… well, it was Thursday morning around 1:30am. I was fortunate to sleep in a little, but then hit the kitchen [...]

I attended some great seminars this past week. I believe no matter where we are in life we can always learn something new. One of the classes spoke about mindset… which you know, I’m all about. Do you have an open mindset or has your mindset gradually shut down due to how you were taught [...]


Things Aren’t Always As They Seem

by Teresa Smith on August 11, 2014

This past week my cousin went on vacation. She had heard about a place in town to board pets. At the facility, there are different levels of service and different types of rooms for your pet. There were overhead cameras in the facility so while you were away, you could always take a peak at [...]

I’ve said it before. I break for butterflies. I hate to hit anything with my car, but when you’re traveling speeds of 40+ mph in a 3000 pound piece of metal, you’re bound to hit something  during your lifetime. I think it’s odd that I’ll be driving and I’ll see a possum that’s been hit, [...]


When Your Soul Needs A Boost

by Teresa Smith on July 7, 2014

Several weeks ago I attended a presentation where Tony Robbins was one of the recorded speakers. He stated that people ask him all of the time if he ever got depressed or down because his job is to uplift others and help others create a more positive perspective. He stated that he had down days, [...]


Celebrating Life

by Teresa Smith on June 30, 2014

The one thing I enjoy doing each week is getting together with my family. Each Sunday evening my brother and I gather with my cousins and aunt.  At times we’ll meet at a restaurant and other times we’ll gather at my cousins house to grill. Sometimes my cousin prepares everything and all I have to [...]


No Looking Back

by Teresa Smith on June 23, 2014

OK… I admit it. I did a bad thing while driving the other day. No, I wasn’t putting on makeup, I wasn’t texting… none of that. I was driving down a road near my home and saw a sign posted the opposite direction of how I was driving. I looked in my rear view mirror, [...]


Life is All About Perspectives

by Teresa Smith on May 12, 2014

Life is all about perspectives. Well, at least that’s my perspective. I remember years ago in my first job. I had a lot of difficulty with a co-worker. We had different styles of doing our jobs. Our offices were next to each other and you could easily hear through the walls. I reported to several [...]
