Negotiating for JOY in every area of your life is absolutely essential for an awesome life! Winning such negotiations requires a few special ingredients: a couple of dashes of sass and skill, a few pinches of chutzpah and grit ... and ample handfuls of LOVE!!! And the greatest part about it is that when you win, everyone wins!!
Today, Michele and I discuss the nuances of how her life is changing. From decluttering to decorating her new home office to trying a smoked grilled cheese sandwich made by her son who has become quite the culinary explorer. I'm hungry now! We also talk about different forms of psychology and different things you can do to help your child grow the kind of confidence that will be with them throughout their lives.
