Dear Me…

Dear Me

I woke up to this text… “I have a challenge for you Stephanie…right when you wake up to write a congratulatory note to yourself from your 70-year-old self for all the accomplishments you’ve made up until now, the things you’re proud that you’ve done, the person you are, the path … Continue reading Dear Me…



Litter Critter

I’ve got a thing for…garbage. Yes garbage, it may sound a little odd but it drives me crazy nature is infected with litter as it was recently on a potentially beautiful beach in Florida. All our senses were being stimulated – fresh air filling up our lungs, waves crashing, salt water dusting our … Continue reading Implore

Good Question!

Do Today

I visited a friend. It wasn’t a normal visit and in fact it wasn’t even a normal friendship. We played on the same sports team, we had mutual friends, we had been in the same business. All was good. And then we went and did a business deal together and … Continue reading Do Today
