The Winter Doldrums

Feb 26, 2015

By Mo Breden That’s my excuse.  I’ve not posted a blog since early January.   Yes, I know I live in Florida and you are saying “what winter”.  We do get colder weather here, believe it or not.  It just doesn’t snow and the cold weather does not last very long. But the winter doldrums is my excuse, and I’m sticking to it. As compared to where we were last year...

Hearing the Hard to Hear

Feb 25, 2015

You hear something unflattering about yourself. It happens. How you handle the situation as an adult matters more than it did when you were in high school. This is your opportunity for real growth. Here are some things to avoid: 1. Running Away. When a person points out a negative trait of ours, or airs a grievance, it is tempting to run away. We want to remove...

“The Shining” comes full circle in “Doctor Sleep”

Feb 24, 2015

The novel I am writing about was published in September 2013. With schedules being what they are I cannot spend as much time reading as I would like and am behind on the list of books I want to immerse myself in. I just got the chance over the last 3 weeks to enjoy this stunning novel. The ladies in this book are powerhouses and are so worthy of appearing in...

Unexpected Places

Feb 17, 2015

Three weeks ago I was living in suburban, rural almost, Florida. Now, I find myself and my family living in the middle of Manhattan in the city of all U.S. cities. In the winter. In the snow. As I pushed my daughter in her flimsy umbrella stroller, through this blackish snow-mush that collects anywhere a human might want to cross the street, I had to pull over....

From Busy to Delicious

Feb 13, 2015

I’ve been burning the candle at both ends the last couple of weeks. Apart from a bump here or there, I have been feeling generally resilient. How do I do it? I’ve come up with a multitude of recharging and recuperating strategies. The busier I am, the more I amp up the self-care. At a certain point, the ‘busy’ and the ‘self-care’ build...

Upcycling in the Kitchen

Feb 6, 2015

Have you ever gotten home from a long day wanting healthy and delicious homemade food, with tired feet and an aching brain, and absolutely no desire to cook? I certainly have. What usually follows is either cereal or delivery. How about the next day? You hit snooze an extra time (or five): how can eat a healthy and sustaining breakfast, and make the train…much...

Growing Pains

Feb 3, 2015

This column was inspired by the movie “Foxes” (1980) and contains spoilers. This is one I hope you share and discuss with your teenagers. You may want to view “Foxes” first being it is an “R” rated film and only you, as a parent, can determine what is appropriate for your kids to watch. Jeanie, Annie, Madge and Deidre are...
