Lest you think I might exaggerate…

…about Maria Sharapova sounding like she was giving birth at the French Open today, I give you the video proof.



Don’t sweat the small stuff…

I saw a movie tonight where a character said, “Stop waiting for something to happen.” It was a really simple line meant only to serve as a bridge between scenes. The movie moved on, but my mind didn’t.

To me, it really made sense. We spend a lot of time waiting for the next holiday, milestone, event…or in some cases, for life to get better than it currently is. As a result, we often overlook the fact that, while we wait, life continues to happen all around us. We are so focused on what’s next or what’s wrong with eight now that we fail to appreciate what’s happening in the moment or the fact that we even got that moment at all.

So, what is the lesson herein from which we can all benefit? Stop sweating the small stuff and just live. That’s all there is to it. Go on. Go now. Live.

(See? I can write short, sweet and to the point…occasionally.)

Keeping the ‘Memorial’ in Memorial Day 2011

Memorial Day is a great time to celebrate the beginning of another summer in the U.S. and spend time relaxing with family and friends…..both of which you enjoy in the comfort of a free and democratic country.


While you’re doing it, though, don’t forget to remember the brave men and women who gave their lives over the course of the last two centuries, to ensure you were afforded the opportunity you have this weekend. For many families who have lost sons and daughters in Iraq and Afghanistan, Memorial Day 2011 will be tough to handle.

So, please say a prayer or, if you don’t believe in that, just send a few good thoughts to the fallen, as well as the mother, father, husband, wife, child or friend they left behind. Happy Memorial Day 2011 to all.
