Labor Week

Family First

UNITED STATES—Christmas has come and gone, and to be honest with everyone I am so happy. I felt a bit more stress this year than in previous years past. Not 100 percent sure why, but it did indeed transpire. I always tell people, as soon as Thanksgiving arrives, it seems Christmas sneaks right around the corner before New Year’s...

Academics Matter For Kids

UNITED STATES—I tell this to people all the time and I stress this all the time: academics are vital for kids. If you have a child that is struggling, you cannot wait until the last minute to start to make things happen. You might be asking why I’m bringing this up. Well, I got news over the weekend that...

Mental Health Is A Serious Matter

UNITED STATES—Mental health is something we keep talking about, but I honestly feel as if we’re not having the conversation we really need to have to address the issue head on. The reason I really want to discuss this issue is because I was utterly stunned to turn on the local news last week to discover one of the...

The Money Battle

UNITED STATES—Money, it is the one commodity some people have loads of and others wish they could earn more of it. With Christmas fast approaching, it really got me thinking about finances, where I’m spending my money and what I’m spending it on. However, this isn’t really a question about my finances it’s about others. Nothing bugs me more...

Overspending On Christmas Gifts

UNITED STATES—Oh, how Christmas, but it can indeed be a stressful one for many Americans. Why? We attempt to do a bit more than what we need to, specifically when it comes to purchasing Christmas gifts. I will be the first to admit that I am indeed one of those individuals. I just love the notion of giving, but...

Overloaded, Exhausted And Burnt Out

UNITED STATES—I hear this question all the time: why are you so tired? I sometimes have to laugh inside because if I truly said what I wanted people might think I’m attacking them. That is not the cause, but its exhaustive going through the laundry list of things that I have to deal with in life. I have two...

Patience Is Lacking America!

UNITED STATES—What are we doing America, where nowadays we cannot seem to utter two simple words: EXCUSE ME! Ugh, this drives me absolutely bonkers and I do not mean that in the slightest way. I swear I may have given some of the dirtiest looks to date to so many people during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. We are lacking common...

Life Changing Decisions

UNITED STATES—It is hard to believe, the year 2018 is slowly coming to an end and it has gotten me thinking so much about the decisions I’ve made in life and where I want to be a year from now. First, I’ve come to the realization that I’m spending a bit more money than what I should be doing. I...

Letting Go Of All The Small Stuff

UNITED STATES—This week I found myself in a bit of a predicament. I had to swallow my pride and apologize for being a complete a**. I’ve been told I can have a bit of a temper, but I like to believe I am able to control my temper for the most part. Only a few things annoy me: people...

We All Fear The Word ‘Budget!”

UNITED STATES—I was watching something on television recently and the word budget kept coming up and it hit me: man you’re spending a bit of money. It’s time for me to put the brakes on things and focus my attention on where my money is going. Back in 2017, I did something amazing in my opinion because it really...
