Rebuilding Myself- One Heartbreak and One Better Choice At A Time

I lost another friend to cancer today. 39 years young. As I reflect on her life, remembering how she loved life, not only the good times, but how she never met a challenge she didn’t take on with her larger than life smile and her gracious and caring heart, I can’t help but feel guilt and sadness. I am a survivor. Survivors know what I am talking about. Happy to be alive – feeling a sense of guilt because another friend has taken their last breath while you sit looking at your email and Instagram feed.

REGULARS, TIPS FOR WOMEN

NOW It’s Time To Think of YOU!

Perhaps this is nothing you haven’t read about before, yet perhaps it is something you need to be reminded of, especially this time of year.  As women, wives, mothers, and grandmothers, we are generally the caregivers.  We think of and take care of everyone else during the holidays making sure the perfect gift is found, the house is decorated to bring joy to the season and the perfect parties and meals are prepared.  And then there’s the clean-up afterwards.  I hope that you’ve had help and your efforts have been appreciated.

Menopause Transition

DON’T MISS THIS IMPORTANT PREVENTATIVE HEALTH OPPORTUNITY

Sometime between ages 45 and 55, for many women, gynecologic and related health issues begin to emerge. Menstrual cycles now seem different, mood swings and memory lapses appear, and sleep becomes more chaotic, coupled with warm flushes. And the weight! Why at the mid-section? These irritating acknowledgements belie a more ominous change. During this menopause transition, loosely referred to as “perimenopause,” events are unfolding that have an impact on a woman’s cardiovascular risk.

Education To Make Lasting Changes For Life

Happy New Year and a warm welcome to the year 2017!  Speaking of warm, as this issue of the magazine is released, I will most likely be teaching at a School for the Deaf in Hato Mayor, Dominican Republic.  

This trip follows my recent visit to Haiti as I worked with the deaf population in that country back in November.  Within two months, I will have experienced and immersed myself in the Island of Hispaniola’s need for further exploration of Deaf Education along with their desperate need for the education of Sign Language Interpreters.  These experiences have led me to see the dire need for education to make lasting changes for life.

Did The Holidays Steal Your Happy Hoo-Haa?

I’ve spent a career working with women in the salon industry. My goal has been to make women feel sexier and more confident.

I’ve also reminded countless women to focus more on their relationships instead of all the extra crap that inundates their lives.  During this past holiday, however, I think many people forgot the true meaning of Christmas.

Meeting Life’s Challenge’s as Growth Opportunities

Life is full of challenges. Some don’t require much effort while others seem like ominous, impossible circumstances that linger quite some time, until we figure them out… if we figure them out.

My biggest challenge in life has been growing up as a transgender woman in a world that doesn’t understand what “transgender” means. It’s been a series of challenges really, all stemming from being transgender (or perceived “different”) in today’s cultural and social climate.
