How Sports Can Get You Ahead In Business

Girls, It's Time To Get Into The Game

by: Sharon DeVellis

This Gal's Got Game

Do you think about raking when someone mentions The Maple Leafs?

I’m the first to admit that I barely know anything about hockey even though my youngest son plays in both winter and summer and my husband has played forever. I’m the person at every hockey game asking:

What’s offside?
What’s icing?
Why did that kid get a penalty?
What’s offside again?

Hey You! You're Better Than Who You Think You Are

How wonderful would it be to see ourselves through someone else's eyes

by: Sharon DeVellis

Seeing Yourself Through Someone Else's Eyes

My thighs are too big.
I wish I had better skin.
I’d look good if it wasn’t for this muffin top.
I don’t want to go out tonight, I feel fat.
Ugh, these bags under my eyes make me look 70.

Are you guilty of saying something like this to yourself?

I am.

We’re our own god damn worst enemies, aren’t we? If anyone ever said something like this to our kids or one of our friends, we’d go all, “It’s on like Donkey Kong” on their asses. Yet, we have no problem saying these things to ourselves. Every. Single. Day.

Sharon is a Common Sense Parent which is somewhere in between being free-range and helicopter. She believes in being active as a family and eating well 85% of the time. The other 15% is for the days when she's PMSing and then all bets are off. So far her parenting style has worked wonders for her two boys who astound her on a daily basis but that's not to say she doesn't have time to totally screw it up. She can't teach you how to keep your house clean while balancing a job and motherhood but if you're a mom who's struggling to figure it out, you've found your tribe.
