My Goal of the Day: To write meaningful, relatable stories, articles, and blog posts that are easy to read, transparent, entertaining, and informative.
My Thought of the Day: Words can and do change the world. Write as if your legacy depended on it. How do you wish to be remembered?
My Action of the Day: Grabbing a strong latte before diving into my work.
My Deed of the Day: Breathe, smile and write (they are all related)
My Tip of the Day: Aging is an abstract. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
A Day in My Life:
What do you love most about Your City?
Having been born in San Francisco but lived elsewhere for parts of my life, I could never wait to get back to the City. Now? I enjoy my time in a vibrant but sometimes sleepy suburb 100 miles away from there, and I’ve never been happier. Except for the shopping, that is….
Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?
Full-bodied homemade (by the restaurant owner) Greek yogurt with berries on top, drizzled with a bit of sinful maple syrup.
What are you doing at:
6:00 AM – Still dreaming in technicolor but only a half hour away from reality.
10:00 AM - By now I’ve finished a few editing jobs and authored a blog post for a business (writing) account I have. I’m just starting to attack my job as a remote Community Manager for Girlboss Media. And I am thinking about what I might write about next either for my own blog (I ALWAYS have something to say) or for one of my two Psychology Today blogs. I also work out with a strength trainer at this time twice a week.. My arms are NOT flabby.
12:00 PM - Favorite Lunch spot/meal?
Lunch is usually an afterthought. Too much of an interruption.
7:00 PM - By now (depending on the day of the week) I’m either watching recorded programs with my amazing spouse, singing my heart out at a karaoke place with him, or enjoying a short stogie and a brandy out on the patio.
11:00 PM - In bed playing word games and slipping into the arms of Morpheus.
What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?
Just one or two lattes does it for me. The rest of the time I keep a bottle of San Pellegrino on my desk.
Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?
Most used app? Facebook. Most frequently visited Insta page -- my baby girl’s. Sometimes it’s the only way I know what is going on in her world.
What should everyone try at least once?
Going to Greece. Especially Santorini. (It’s my happy place.)
Where do you enjoy getting lost?
In Venice. Paris is a close second...
