Healthcare In a Perfect World

With healthcare at the peak of political discussion and debate right now, I thought it a good time to chime in my two cents about the subject. First, let me explain that this post is by no means a political view or one that puts me at the feet of any party. What I care about is women and their families getting healthy and staying that way.

We’ll Miss You Patrick Swayze

It saddened me every time I saw one of Patrick Swayze's photos on the cover of a magazine in the grocery. Though I'm sure that he didn't want his fans to feel sorry for him, it was hard to see such a vital, handsome man with a lively career in film languish in such a way.

Are Cell Phones Dangerous?

As women, we are busy; communication is important to us. For most of us, mobile technology has become as important as running water and electricity- a cultural necessity. And, being without our cell phones would be a disaster, or at least constitute a mild tizzy.

Deja Vu

Landing in Philadelphia for Journey trip #33, I hopped into my car and set Betty (my GPS) to navigate me to Scranton. On the phone with my sister-in-law, I realized I’d been there before. You know that crazy Dèjá Vu feeling that washes over you? And then it hit me.

Insurance Companies and Alternative Medicine

Because I have suffered from chronic migraine for about eight years now, treatment options (that I would consider) are getting slimmer by the minute in mainstream medicine. This fact is one of the reasons why I am so interested and knowledgeable about alternative therapies and the use of natural remedies. A girl has to do - what girl has to do...when there is pain involved, that is.

Women's Life Link would like to introduce, Dafna Michaelson. By a random Google search for the "best women's blogs", her assistant found us and emailed about Dafna's extraordinary journey around the US in search of unsung heroes.

Healthy Fashion

Although the terms "health" and "fashion" may not be commonly used together right now, I believe we will soon see a deluge of "organic/healthy" clothing and accessories that takes us to a new era of living healthy and looking great while doing it. Since I'd like to see every woman consider the "Be Well-Be Beautiful" concept as a lifestyle, I thought we could take a look at some of the products that are currently offered in the market.

The Green Woman

We live in a day where the terms "going green" and "organic" are becoming more prevalent. Many of you have taken the initiative to act on the call to make this earth we live on a better place; however, many have not. It's one of those things that anyone can do and everyone should. I'm not preaching from a pedestal here; I only recently started making an effort to "save the planet" by recycling.

Recognizing Great Leadership

Watch and Learn Each woman on this planet has the responsibility to find a path to her personal greatness. It's a journey of trial and error at best. Consider a small child when ready to walk, she may not understand the mechanics of her body, or how each joint works together with muscles and bones to make her walk; she does want something on the other side of the room-her goal-so she finds a way to get there.

Where Has Mentorship Gone?

I sat in my living room the other day talking to a friend. We got on the subject of mentorship by way of realizing that neither of us had a great example of a loving marriage as we were growing up. I took the thought further by trying to think of any couple that I knew personally who would score an eight or higher in that department.
