There is a moment in everyone's life when all the cards are on the table, all the chips, too -- the moment of truth when the entire universe, it seems, is conspiring to call one's attention to the choice we have every single day to let go of the past and move towards what is truly calling us.
I wear makeup. Not every day, but then, I work from home, so half the time I don't put on my clothes, let alone my face. But if I'm going out and I have time, I'll do my makeup. But what message am I sending my kids?
I once read somewhere that if you're looking for the perfect man to fulfill your dreams, become the woman you would marry if you were a man. I thought this message was right on target and so clear that it got me to start working on my self-image and take my mind off what I expected from a man.
If you hate doing something, but do it anyway just because you think it'll help in the long run, you might want to think again and think hard about it. You'll start to cultivate some self-knowledge and direction to move you toward doing your own shit, on your own terms.
Democrats keep trying to drive our country forward with policies designed to help Americans in the 21st century. Unfortunately, Republicans are stuck in reverse. In 2016, let's find Democratic candidates who will move the country forward.
Keep expecting the best and visualize and write down what qualities you are looking for in your soul mate, but don't drive yourself bonkers, get out and do something constructive or fun, who knows you might bump into them!
Every choice we make leads us closer to, or further away, from being the person we desire to be. The more conscious we are in the choices we make, the clearer we are on who we are. That's how powerful our freedom to choose is.

Parents can opt out of having their kids vaccinated for either philosophical or religious reasons, depending on the state. Posturing as a defender of individual liberty, when people already have it, is selfish political grandstanding and nothing more.
As challenging of a time that was for me, I came out a different person. A better person. It helped to wake me up, and it was then I realized when you choose happiness above all other things you start to understand life a little bit better.
If you're not happy with your current relationship (and it's not abusive or destructive), do everything you can to shape it into what your heart desires. Only then, walk away peacefully. Ask yourself: 'Have you done everything you could possibly do?'
We don't have to wait to make choices that make us feel good. We don't have to throw up our hands and decide we are failures because we didn't follow through on our intention. Sometimes the best laid plans need tweaking -- we need to make room for our humanity.
I'm not watching the Super Bowl this year. Not just because of Deflategate, although that's probably what pushed me over the edge. Mainly, I've realized it's a complete and utter waste of time. I have better things to do.
When you take a minute to simply look within yourself, you will more often than not make the right choice for your health. And you won't have to limit yourself to these stupid, harsh rules that don't really hold anyway. Lose the resolution and resolve to choose happiness.
