2 Days ’til 40: 40 Favorite Posts from My 400 Days ’til 40 Journey

I must say that it was much easier to choose 40 photos than to choose 40 posts!  One of the fun things about this particular journey is that I allowed myself to write (or post photos) about whatever I felt on any particular day.  As a result, I have a wide array of followers who each connect in different ways to what I write – this has been amazing.  I imagine that in the future, as I become a bit more focused, I may have a less diverse group of readers, though I hope not!


Here is my top 40 list of posts, hopefully as eclectic as my readers are.  Some I chose because of the importance of the content, some because they make me laugh (yes, I realize that I have a weird sense of humor that others do not always appreciate) and some because I like the way the words flow.

17 Days ’til 40: Want a Job? Connect!!!

Screen Shot 2012-05-23 at 9.37.40 PM


It is a fact. It is almost impossible today to find employment if you are not connected. Social networking and high visibility within social media sites is now necessary in order to make meaningful connections with future employers. This phenomenon will only continue to grow as our technology continues to expand in ways we cannot begin to predict or understand. Gone are the days (almost) of newspaper advertisements. Most companies place their “help wanted” ads on their websites. Other companies use online job boards to post their openings where a larger audience will view them. When I am looking for employees, I do both.

72 Days ’til 40: STOP WASTING THIS MOMENT!!!


The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly. ~ Buddha

The present moment is filled with joy and happiness.  If you are attentive, you will see it. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Each of us is the best we can be when we are fully present, focused yet relaxed, curious yet non-judgmental, committed yet flexible. ~ John Kuypers

81 Days ’til 40: It’s a SMALL World


Yes, I know it is pathetically cliché, but it really is a small world, particularly with the internet bringing us closer together.  WordPress has a very cool feature, which all of my fellow bloggers are aware of, that records where blog visitors live.  I get a list of all of the hits my blog receives daily and the countries they come from.   Read the rest of this entry »

175 Days ’til 40: Stepping Back to Move Forward

Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. ~ Steve Jobs

If we are to go forward, we must go back and rediscover those precious values – that all reality hinges on moral foundations and that all reality has spiritual control. ~ Martin Luther King Jr. Read the rest of this entry »

176 Days ’til 40: Making Reservations (For Dinner)



We have all had those evenings, haven’t we?  We come home from a long day at work and the last thing we want to be doing is preparing a meal for our family.  This is even more challenging in homes where both parents must work.  Sometimes we find that in these moments we are more likely to either make reservations or order food for delivery.  This is dependent on the degree of exhaustion – do we have the energy to eat in a somewhat dignified manner without drooling on the table?  If so, we go out – otherwise, we order in and drool on the couch while watching t.v. and eating out of paper bags and styrofoam boxed fast food.

I prefer home cooked meals, but there are times when those breaks are so critical to our mental health.

Today, 176 days ’til 40, I am thankful for the permission we give ourselves to make reservations every once in a while instead of making dinner.

182 Days ’til 40: Crazy Remedies (That Work!)

I have a confession to make.  Those who know me will not be surprised.  I am a strong Dr. Google follower.  It is true.  I consult Dr. Google with all sorts of ailments, mostly in search for cures that are cheap, holistic, natural, or do not involve my having to head to the doctor.

242 Days ’til 40: Life’s a Beach

273 Days ’til 40: Facebook: Fanaticism, Fiasco and/or Fun?

Today I was thinking about Facebook….  not because it just started selling stock and not because there is already a lawsuit by shareholders….. no, I was thinking of Facebook just because.  I was wondering whether Facebook is a vehicle for fanaticism, fiasco or fun…… Read the rest of this entry »

276 Days ’til 40: Inventions that Change Our Lives

At 276 days ’til 40, I am old, but I am not REALLY old, and with a projected lifespan into the 80’s, I certainly have a long way to go if my genetics and life circumstances choose to cooperate.  That said, when I look around at the world today compared to the world I was born into so much has changed.  I realize that so many of the things I rely on today did not exist, or existed only in their infant forms, when I was young.
