Why Not?

There were a few things about me in my 20s that remain true today: I think outside the box and am a visionary I hate paperwork This presented a unique situation for me as I started my corporate career at IBM. I entered that world in a very unconventional way, starting...

The Gray Cords

I weigh now the same amount as I did my senior year in college. Lest you are amazed, this is not necessarily a good thing. You see, when I was a senior I was at my heaviest. All I could wear was a pair of light gray Levi’s corduroy pants. They became known as “Jan’s...

Same Day, Different View

It was Monday. It was cold and rainy. I had a desk full of half-completed tasks and a to-do list that went on for pages. I did not want to get out of bed. I opened my eyes at 6:00 and immediately decided that was too early. At 7:00 I actually woke up, looked at some...

Love, For No Particular/For Every Reason

I remember the first flowers I ever got from a guy. Roses, on Valentines Day, from a funny, smart, loving boyfriend. While I was thrilled with gift and sentiment, I wasn’t ready for the relationship. If I had any regrets in life, it might be that. Over the following...

Part of the reason I like to hit the snooze button in the morning is the feeling of power over this “thing”: I’m not starting my day being told what to do. The other reasons are that morning sleep seems so much more satisfying, and my bed is especially cozy then. But...

A Missed Goal Lets the Light Shine

Maybe it was the day after Christmas let down. Maybe I’m just exhausted. Or maybe, I thought, it was something deeper. But for whatever reason, I was crying. I was reading an article on the sports page of the New York Times – and crying. Really? The article was about...

Believing is Seeing

I was 12 – well past the age of believing in Santa – and yet here I was, standing in line to go sit on the big man’s knee with my younger sisters, and to plead my case of being a good girl and deserving that for which I was asking.  It was because of those...

Where Are YOU On Your To-Do List?

I have a to-do list that spans multiple pages. I have yet to decorate my house for the holidays. I have a vague idea what I am getting people for Christmas. My mind will not stop thinking about all. I. Have. To. DO. I’m going to get some reflexology today. And eat...
