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 […]

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!” […]

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 […]

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

In my last post Are You On Guru Overload, Part 1, I talked about the fact that, if you are trying to accommodate changes in your life that you really don’t like, it doesn’t matter how advantageous they are made to appear, they aren’t going to work for you. Or at least, you aren’t going […]

Are You On Guru Overload? Part 1

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

I’ve decided guru overload is real, and it can be a serious affliction! Let me explain. Online these days you can find an expert for anything you want to learn about. That’s good news of course because, whoever you are, there will be someone you are comfortable learning from. Sometimes there will be a number […]

Moonshot Thinking

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

I learned a new concept today: Moonshot Thinking. It was a new one but “moonshot” gave me a pretty good idea. Les Brown says “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” I’ve liked that philosophy since I first heard it. Today I was listening to Peter Diamandis, a brilliant […]

Multi-Generationalism

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

Multi-generationalism. Is it even a word? The concept of multi-generational integration seems to be less common, less popular than it has been in years gone by. I need to say that sort of generically because it has been less true in my own life. At boarding school, it was often easier to have me spend […]

Your Habits Have Personality?

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

Ok, Ok, your habits don’t exactly have a personality, but you do. And now for a chicken and egg type question: Does your personality shape your habits? Or do your habits shape your personality? I’m smack dab in the middle of “Better Than Before” by Gretchen Rubin. I usually wait until I’ve finished a book […]

All I Want For Christmas…

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

All I want for Christmas is to opt out of the craziness. I’ve been around long enough to remember a time when Christmas meant Mandarin oranges and new socks, and maybe a small gift. It’s not that I’m THAT old, as in not Depression-old! It’s just we didn’t have a lot of money and there […]
