“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving..”
—Mother Theresa—

Here come the holidays racing in
like they are being chased by a harried haint leftover from Halloween. Ready or not, in the next 55 days, most of us will run around inundated with mile-long to-do lists. Cleaning, decorating, traveling, cleaning, cooking, baking, shopping, cleaning, wrapping, partying…WHOA! I’m going to stop right there and give you permission to holiday differently this year. I don’t want you to be there (thinking if I can just get through the holidays), when you can be here (designing the holidays you desire).
Everything on that lofty list of to-dos I just rambled off can be enjoyable, but here’s a secret: even if that stuff doesn’t get done, you can still enjoy yourself this holiday season. You don’t have to define the “success” of your holidays by how clean your house is, how awe-inspiring your decor is, how many presents you buy for people, or if you burned the turkey (or forgot to unthaw it!) In fact, tell me three things you got for Christmas last year.

Hissy Fit - November 2022 - Hey Pumpkin: Spice it Up

...because everyone needs one every once in awhile

Hissy Fit - November 2022 -  Hey Pumpkin:  Spice it Up

I know it’s that time of year to be extra thankful, but it seems like the humbug is already trying to take root in my holiday happiness, and it’s all due to pumpkin spice haters.

I don’t care if you don’t like pumpkin spice. All I ask is that you don’t care if I do. But that seems to be a problem for a lot of people. They can’t seem to enjoy their flavors, and live with the fact that some people choose pumpkin spice.

I happen to be a lover of pretty much anything pumpkin, especially when it comes to pie, bread, cookies, coffee or general desserts. Those pumpkin rolls, constructed of pumpkin bread rolled up with a thick layer of cream cheese, are so insanely delicious they should be against the law. And pumpkin cheesecake, O.M.G. thank you Cheesecake Factory for not listening to “those people” who say abhorrent things like “it’s too early for pumpkin spice.”

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” —Anaïs Nin

I’ve done it again. Put myself in a position to stress and worry. As the founder of Pink and Paisley Magazines, I have a passion for people and connecting them with each other to benefit both sides. I love putting people together, so much so, we used to do an article called Mix and Match. We would have a single man and a single woman go on a date, along with our writer, who was perfect for this assignment. Sometimes it was a match, and sometimes not so much, but it was always fun—though risky—and made for great reading, too.

In my passion to connect people, Pink has become the events leader for women in our area, and this is where my stress comes in. When people look at things from the outside, it all usually appears easy; and one would think after doing them for so many years that it is easy. Granted, we have gotten the due diligence of our events down to a science, but where the uneasiness comes in is the part out of our control: Will anyone come?

Hissy Fit - October 2022 -  Fight Like A Girl:  Win Like A Woman

Binge Watching: Binge watching a television series on a streaming app actually starts with an A—addiction. Aha, they got you! I was having a conversation with a local server the other evening, and he was talking about how wonderful a certain series was and how he stays up all night watching it. I don’t know the stats, but I believe lots of people do this. I want to break the news to binge watchers that they are in complete control. I’m not sure how we get hooked, probably because one show starts immediately after the one before it finishes, but somehow, the fact that we can stop it, get a great night’s sleep and resume right where we left off during our next free time slot eludes our brains. Thus we binge watch…for hours on end.

There are lessons to learn in almost every moment of any given day. Basically, if you’re breathing, you can be learning. However, there is a big difference between educational learning and life lesson learning. Educational learning is easy to pick up as you go about your day being exposed to new facts, news, how-tos, words, etc. However, in order to learn life lessons, you have to not only be breathing, but also paying close attention.
