Lost. Stolen. There Is A Difference.

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

I was going to start this post with a definition of “lose”, but when I went to dictionary.com, there were a couple dozen definitions (gotta love the English language!). Maybe I should start at the beginning: I had a career in ElderCare.  Frailty.  Dementia.  Illness.  and inevitably Death.  So many things in those days were […]

Good Thing. Bad Thing. Who Knows?

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

I was recently reminded of the following story: Once upon a time, an old farmer lived in a valley with his son, a handsome and dutiful youth. They lived a peaceful life despite a lack of material possessions. They were very happy. So much so, that neighbours wanted to understand the secret of their happiness. […]

What Do You Think About Body Hair?

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

Have you ever considered the universal fascination we have with body hair? Both women and men are susceptible to societal expectations, norms, and aversions about the hair that happens (or doesn’t) on our bodies. I listened to a CBC Radio program recently about this and I was interested to notice what I agreed with and […]

What Excites You?

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

Seriously! What excites you… that you can tell me in front of my 7 year-old grandson! I’m mostly talking money here. Thinking about day-to-day life, how stoked would you be to find out a gas station across town was selling gas for 3₵/litre less than every other gas station in town? Would you call your […]

It’s About The Word “Girl”

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

What do you think about the use of the word “girl”? Over the years, I’ve had some pretty strong opinions about words used to describe, explain and categorize women. Recently, I watched a video from Mayim Bialik (Amy Farrah Fowler on Big Bang Theory) where she went on a bit of a rant about women […]

When… Then…

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

A friend posted an article about the price of alcohol in B.C. today. Fortunately, that doesn’t affect me as I only drink wine! It did, however, get me to thinking about the fact that I’m now old enough to pull that old line “When I was a kid, a chocolate bar only cost a nickel!” […]

When They Beat Me To The Punch

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

You may or may not have figured out that “Sass” is a mainstay in my life. Sass in a fun way, of course! No lip, no smart ass, I’ve even left the self-deprecating humour behind. Sass as in quick responses, exaggerated body movements (when appropriate) and assertive appreciation of unusual skills. Here are some examples: […]

Being My Dog

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

I spend about an hour a day being my dog. Actually, I’m much more delightful than my dog, but that’s a whole other story. Let me explain. I have a Facebook page for my dog. She has about 3500 followers and a weekly reach of 7,000 to 12,000 views. It’s a fun page with a […]

About Role Models And Reality

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

Have you seen those articles and photos of the 80-year-old body builder? The 90-year-old sky-diver? The great-Gramma who is still Latin dancing with her grandson? Then there’s the career figure skater, the gymnast and the swimmers… who are still practicing their craft well into their 80s. Aren’t they amazing? Wouldn’t some small part of you […]
