Me, Myself and I


How comfortable are you in your own skin?

Can you stay in a room without the radio or TV and just enjoy being by yourself for hours on end; hence, Me, Myself and I; or, are you the restless one who needs to be busy every minute; needs the constant companionship of radio, TV, computer or surrounded by friends.  




Life is comprised of forty percent privacy and sixty percent sociability but given the human behavior, this will vary. 

The total introvert prefers eighty percent privacy and twenty percent sociability. The social aspect is based on necessary interaction with fellow humans.

The extrovert has a huge appetite for life which includes travel and sociability; hence, the Me, Myself and I represent solitude, a negative factor. Their privacy level depends on their needs or mindset. 

The rare “perfect balance” of Me, Myself and I, is the person who is totally comfy in their own skin, embraces both their privacy and the social aspect with their specific circle of friends. They can survive with or without the radio or TV.

The lonely, Only Child, strict upbringing and low-income. Learned to entertain herself and created imaginary friends; hence, Me, Myself and I became a part of life – learning to survive without the small luxuries; then embracing the simple things which other people take for granted.

In another part of town, lived the family of 10 – parents and eight daughters. The eight daughters were spoiled to the core – never wanted for anything and competed against each other; hence, Me, Myself and I were non-existent.

The lonely, only child and the eight daughters were related. Their moms were sisters.

Hear My Roar!

There is nothing in this life that cannot be fixed or, resolved;hence, life consists of situations, not problems. Like grandma used to say“there’s a lid for every pot”.

Whether it is parenting, enjoying a relationship or, trying to advance in the workplace, the key ingredients are patience, persistence and pursuit.


Patience:Stand back and view the entire picture.

Pursuit:  Aim high until you achieve that dream/goal.

What you would realize later in life that you live in a negative society that thrives on obstacles that hold you down and hold you back.

The Early Years
From toddler to adolescence, your mind was pretty much on what you wanted to be when you grow up. Family and friends mused over your vivid imagination. You were a child and had no voice of your own.

During the scholastic years, your classmates an…

Why Marrying Your Best Friend could be a Mistake

Each of us has that one special someone we have known for most of our life and to whom we can bear our soul without being judged or betrayed. They are our support system 24/ in good times and in not so good times. They are that one positive, constant we depen -->d on to keep us honest and grounded.
Soulmate and best friend are entirely different. A soulmate is someone who encourages us and helps us grow on all three levels – personally, socially and professionally.
We share secrets with our best friend and other stuff we could never share with a family member, other friends or acquaintance; so why is it a huge mistake to fall in love with and marry our best friend?
A best friend means just “that” / someone we turn to for rescue or advice when life’s ocean creates too many ripples and we feel ourselves drowning.

When we marry our best friend, life changes but not always for the better. That person actually stops being our best friend since marriage takes on a different hue and role. M…

What Puts Power in the Power Couple

Grandma always said: Be beautiful at the window, be an angel in the kitchen and a devil in the bedroom. 

Love, trust, understanding and communication are the common denominators for a good relationship, whether you are companions or dating long-term and contemplating the big step.
The Power Couple is the highest level-relationship. They do have their ups and downs, but quickly resolved and never disclosed in public.
The power couple is admired and envied. They always seem to be in sync and display compatibly wherever they go. This is not a fairy tale relationship by any means but the ingredients are different.
How It begins Most people marry their high school or college sweetheart or, they go separate ways after school for whatever reason – they might marry – then either divorce or become widowed. Then it comes into play at the High School Class/College Reunion. They meet once again, catch up and discover they are both in the “same place” and ready to rekindle that old flame.
The power c…
