    Life Is Too Short

    Constructive feedback is very different in nature to the mean spirited put downs and cleverly disguised remarks of a verbal sniper. Life is far too short to try to please the people for whom nothing is good enough. Around my being I choose to blanket my heart and hold close those...

    What a Drag!

    I use to have a critical "friend" growing up! She was not pleasant to be around, because everything I thought of or said, she had some negative response to. I had gotten an invitation to be a model, when I was a teen, and ran to tell her... big mistake! Her...
