We’re all doing the best that we can. Do you believe that? SOMETIMES…We forget to call a friend on their birthday. We are preoccupied with our own life.We react badly to the server. We lose our calm and simply lose it. We lose our patience.We honk at the person who doesn’t go on green. We are just grouchy. We stay in […]

Busy? Overwhelmed? Stressed? Wondering if this crazy roller coaster ride is ever going to slow down? YES, it can! If you choose to PAUSE and smell the flowers…something that seems and feels counter intuitive for so many of us ladies on the go.  “But Bita, if I pause, it’s going to slow me down! I’m […]

Did you know that our emotions only last for 90 seconds? According to Harvard brain scientist Dr. Jill Taylor, our feelings start to dissipate after only a minute and a half.
