*Sometimes silence is your answer.
*It’s ok to not relentlessly stick to your schedule as long as you’re doing what you’re supposed to be doing, changing it up can be a good thing.
*The Bayliss Bitch is indeed quite bitchy. (It’s a hill by the way)
*Hill running is mildly entertaining.
*Compromise is an art. When carried out well it can create a masterpiece.
*Our kids and teens need people to stick up for them. Without adults who are willing to help change a child’s situation they could be lost forever. It really does take a village.
*When your power wheelchair isn’t working and you can’t get out of your van, your first call is not often your state Senator’s office. However, if you do call, I’ll work to get you out.
*A Mary Kay business is not just “pink jars and pink cars” – it’s really about enriching women’s lives, making them feel beautiful inside and enhancing their self-confidence so that they can kick some major butt.
*It’s ok not to be “perfect” – if you don’t win that prize this month; you have the next month and the one after that waiting for you. Keep moving forward.
*I would like Michelle Obama arms, thanks.
*I’m not the girl that says “let’s catch up over dinner/drinks/lunch/etc” but really doesn’t mean it. I mean it. Sincerely.
*Some days you just need a pair of fantastic shoes to brighten your day.
*I LOVE this quote “I hope that my achievements in life shall be these – that I will have fought for what was right and fair, that I will have risked for that which mattered, and that I will have given help to those who were in need, and that I will have left the earth a better place for what I’ve done and who I’ve been.” As a policy maker at the County level and as a staffer at the state level, and in my daily life I try very hard to live by this motto. I hope that I will make a difference.
*I’m much more tired and hungry when I don’t eat a balanced diet.
*A good medium, black, ball point pen is my favorite. Right now I’m loving the Pentel tko – yes, I’ve thought about this.
*I’m not old enough to be a cougar. I’m a puma.
*I LOVE cards – I would take a card over a gift any day, but I ALWAYS have a hard time finding the perfect one for people.
*Parity for mental health is not just a want; it’s a need and a necessity. Improving coverage and access for people with mental illness will benefit not only the person but their family, employers, and the community as a whole.

*It's almost always better to leave well enough alone.
