I’m a little late in posting this week because I’ve been Self-centered. I felt the beginnings of something coming on a few days ago and made a conscious decision early on to explore a new approach in how I spoke, thought, and felt about it. Instead of my typical, whiny “I [...]
Thanksgiving is in a couple of days and I want to talk about the giving part of it. A bit backwards from the typical emphasis on the thankful part, I know, but this thought struck me so I’m sharing it with y’all.
I’ve been listening to Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose by Eckhart [...]
Friday, 11~11~11, dawned windy and unseasonably cold on Ocracoke. I sipped my coffee peacefully, watched the trees bending in the wind, enjoyed the sunrise and colors of the sky.

The hearing for my name change was this week and it’s official … I am now, *legally* Angela Ivy!
I’ve been moving toward this for months. I was surprised by a part of me that was expecting the world to be marvelously different because my name changed. Like I would walk out of the [...]
Today, I’m sharing an article written by Christine Kane, Mentor to Women Who are Changing the World. (I *love* that!!!)

As I reviewed my mind-map of goals [...]
