    The one thing that is used a lot when coaching and training others is the power of affirmations. Affirmations are positive statements that can help you challenge and overcome your self-sabotaging behaviors and negative thoughts.

    International Widow’s Day: What It Means To Be a Widow

    You may not know it but today is International Widow’s Day! I didn’t know about it until I became a widow myself three and a half years ago. There are many people who tell me that I don’t look like a widow because I am too happy, too powerful and too put together! So it got me thinking that it is time to redefine the term WIDOW.
