From Be Brave

What’s Hair

Hello Friends and happy Friday! I hope everyone has some relaxation planned this weekend! I’ve mowed lawns and mopped floors this week, so that Saturday I can spend in my yard doing a little rose pruning. I think it will be relaxing 🙂 I’ve been following Rachel Hollis and have a strong interest in her…

It’s A Colorful Spring

Hello friends and Happy Wednesday! I was thinking of all the bright colors in my closet this spring and had a little giggle reflecting back to the movie “Devil Wore Prada”- “florals for spring? Groundbreaking”! LOL! I think spring is always full of bright, fun colors but for some reason I’m really rocking them (no matter what Miranda Priestly says- I don’t need her permission, I don’t work for her!) So I thought I would share two of this week’s fun bright spring looks that I love (closet shopping win)! First I couldn’t resist going all purple/pink on Monday! Seriously,…

Dodging the Punches

Hey friends! I thought I would share some of my difficulties lately and how I’m dodging the punches. Someone very close to me is involved in the dissolution of her marriage due to a emotionally abusive spouse. Her spouse also knows my ex husband (I divorced him about 17 years ago). I have found out that her husband and my ex shit talk about me throughout some family events (involving my adult children and grandchildren- those are most events I continue to be around my ex husband). I also found out that my ex inquired (to the person close to…

History of Brave Women

Hello Friends! Happy Thursday! I was listening to a podcast this morning by Rachel Hollis-interviewing Lisa Kleypas discussing her writing career and historical events that shape women’s lives. I thought I would share some history of a brave woman I know. My grandma Lindberg, Norma R Lindberg was born in 1920 and died in 2009 so I had time as an adult to get to know my grandma Lindberg. My other grandma, Faye H Dana died in 1982 and I didn’t get to know her as well as an adult; I was only 17 when she passed away from cancer.…

Mellow Yellow

Hello Friends and Happy Monday! You might ask, is Monday happy? How can that be? Well I didn’t have terrible traffic on the way to work, I was able to check all my emails and update my excel sheet before my two groups. I’m now able to create a blog post on my lunch hour, the sun is shining….that’s enough to make me happy! Actually, just the sunshine makes me happy, it’s been raining forever (I exaggerate a bit right?) LOL So I wanted to share my discovery of the color yellow! I wore it a few times last summer…

Times I Didn’t Listen (and why I’m proud)

Hello friends! I’ve been listening/watching several inspirational speakers (Rachel Hollis, Ashley Lemieux, Mike Lemieux, and Stuart Edge) which is really pumping me up to be myself! ❤️ Today I thought I would share the times in my life that I DID NOT LISTEN to others opinions of me and that makes me proud of myself. Many years ago in admiring (someone close to me-their coworker physical workout and body improvement) I said “I want to do that, I want to do what they did” – to which my loved one said- “you can’t do that, what makes you think you…

2019 Doesn’t Like Me

Happy New Year friends! Seriously this is what I thought last week! (I have this thing against odd numbers!) but seriously I experienced some unexpected difficulties at work which hijacked my whole week of blogging and life as a hopeful-positive person. Life is hard sometimes but then I just have to keep going right?? So…

Finally Share my Hair

Hello friends and happy Sunday! I hope you all have had a great weekend! I finally decided to share another of my “hair” adventures. I blogged about possibly cutting my own hair about a week or so ago but I finally did it! I got my own hair cut in a chin length bob type…
