No Such Thing as Luck

You didn’t make a deal with the devil. The other shoe isn’t going to drop. You weren’t born under a lucky star. You’re not on a streak. You haven’t happened into anything. You aren’t living a charmed life. No more so than anyone else. You aren’t lucky. This was meant for you. You deserve it. [...]

Don’t Look, Just Leap

Permission to be shortsighted. You don’t need to see the big picture. Not now. Not tomorrow. You don’t need to know how it’s all going to turn out. You don’t need to know how or why or when or even who. You don’t need to have a strategy. You don’t need to have a daily, [...]

I’ll Be Happy…When?

I’ve lived in the same apartment for [gasp] nearly nine years.  How that possible? What the what?! That’s a long time.  I moved into my delightful studio shortly after 9/11.
