Only One – Lonely One?

mother-1039765_1920-e1451928215470-620x264Here’s a re-post of a blog I did for KnotSoSubtle.com. I believe this is an issue that many “only child moms” worry about from time-to-time. Perhaps my take on it will give you peace of mind to enjoy the path you’ve chosen (or life chose for you.)

This re-blog from Tom Roston at Ideas.Ted.Com definitely gives some food for thought. There is quite a balance between being bored with an idea and being so totally confused you move on.

5 Signs Your Insecurities Are Taking Center Stage at Work (and Everyone Knows It)

You’ve probably had times at work when you’ve had to suck it up, project a happy face (even though your mood was anything but), and get on with it. A little faking it to get through the work week is normal, but if you’re constantly putting on an act with the intention of appearing confident, that’s a problem that needs fixing.

Re-blog from Richard Moy (Guest blogger at The Muse)

The 4 Best Lessons I Learned When I Made Myself Leave Work at 5 PM Every Day

Do you find yourself staying at work later and later each day and wonder what it would be like to walk out the door with the rest of your coworkers? Richard Moy tried it, and you might be surprised to see the results.
