Of course, it has a meaning of something too stimulating you to have a perspective of something or to think through something. Over the past two months, I have sought out ways to give my soul something to ponder, work through, understand perspective, determine what, if any is a takeaway which I can learn from.

Trump, that’s the Apprentice... am I the Undercover Boss… say what? Over the past week I had three interactions which made me reflect on my journey in life and give thought to pivotal moments that changed me.

On Saturday, May 16th I was fortunate to tour the FAA tower at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport through the New PDK Airport Association.  The tower has a 360 wrap around deck where you can see the entire airport and downtown.

Effie, Brace yourself, Thank You Mrs. Doubtfire… #TuesdayTakeaway

Today's Tuesday Takeaway, Mrs. Doubtfire In 1993, Thanksgiving ushered in a new character named Mrs. Doubtfire who continues to bring laughter some 21 years later.  I'd like to share with you one of my favorite scenes of the movie, the interviews. Do you have a favorite character? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=is0RMnx0sAo My favorite inquiry is a toss-up between I am Job and don't make me get the hose. While traveling over the weekend I debated whether a Mrs. Doubtfire clip from the movie woul[…]

Deep breath, now exhale… You are ALIVE!

Gearing myself up mentally for a long day before me tomorrow starting early and non stop meetings. I took a pause last night reflecting on my #TuesdayTakeaway Challenge - Can’t Sleep?

After all, each day when you wake up is a good day. I crawled into bed last night hearing the heavy exhal[…]
