Life After The Mouse...

Enjoying that remote work life!
Hey Folks!  It's been a LOOOOONNNNNGGG time since I've even said hello, much less created a blog post.  I'm ashamed (well, not really, but at least it makes it sound like I'm somewhat apologetic).

So, what have I been up to?  Good question.  A little bit of this, a whole lot that and tons of rigamaro.

I guess the biggest news to date is that I am no longer an ESPNer!  I left the Disney family almost six months ago. I made the decision to head over to Pace Communications to join the hectic, yet entertaining world of content marketing. Yes, ladies and gents, I am now officially an "Agency Chick" and have been learning to love the life. The account that I am currently working on is blu eCigs® electronic cigarettes.

So in addition to leading blu's digital editorial program, I also get to do quite a bit of writing for the site as well.  Here are some of my recent pieces:

Please read, and let me know what you think.  Feedback makes me happy:-)

I'll be back soon guys, promise!

Until later,

Mondays Don't Have To Suck: How To Avoid Monday Meltdowns

Mondays generally suck for a number of reasons. The first two reasons that come to mind are (1) it's no longer the weekend and (2) it means a return to the corporate grind for a large portion of the population.  Here are my top  five ways to shake off those Monday Blues.

5). Always Dress Up on Mondays
When you look good, you feel good.  So go ahead, pull out that new outfit and killer stilettos and sashay down the hall. And remember, your heel can also be used as a weapon in meetings (not that I support violence...ummm, yeah, so on to number 4).

4). Avoid Meetings
Whenever possible, avoid scheduling important meetings on Mondays, especially Monday mornings.  Most people need the day to catch up and map out the week.  No one is happy on a Monday, so why subject yourself to yet another meeting or conference call...better to reschedule for Tuesday. Everyone will thank you.  Guaranteed.

3). Liquid Crack
Develop a coffee habit.  Drink large quantities of coffee---caffeine soothes the soul.  Don't drink coffee?  Start. The addiction will make you forget it's Monday.

4). Hide
Become a hermit.  Avoid people at all costs.  Your co-workers will most likely ask you intrusive questions like, "how was your weekend?" which will force you to recount all the great times you had over the weekend, serving as a painful reminder that the fun times were over the minute your alarm clock went off.

And last but not least...

5). Denial
If all else fails, denial works.  Simply pretend it isn't Monday.  Develop a case of selective amnesia and operate as if it is actually Tuesday.  It'll help, promise.

I'm A Grown Up...

During Bday Celebration #1 (4/24)
This past Friday (April 26) I turned 37...yeah, let that sink in (three whole years from the big 4-0).  I'm officially in my late thirties and I must say, I'm loving it.  It feels really good to be a grown up, well, it feels really good to be a happy, well-adjusted grown up.  

Positive thinking and the Grace of God is a powerful healer. Despite how it looked on the outside, a few years ago, I was battling all kinds of demons: bad relationships, horrible decision-making, low self-esteem and a lack of faith.  But I tell you, once I was honest with myself, let go of everything and everyone that wasn't good for me, I was released from all of those chains.  I left it all on the altar---hurt, pain, disappointment and I let true Joy in.  Best decision ever.  

Enjoying Chuck's pre-bday celebration in Charlotte (4/14)
I am in such a great place. Spiritually, I'm getting better everyday.  Emotionally, I am happy beyond belief.  Professionally, everything is falling into place.  Personally, I'm in love, I have great friends and an impeccable team surrounding me.  God is not through with me yet.  This is only the beginning, and I'm trusting in Christ to see me through.  I'm all in now, and I'm not turning back.  

Life is good.
