B”H How many times was I told that there was nothing that could be done about my back pain; that there was no obvious cause of my pain, and that I would just have to learn to live with it? So, that’s what I did. The smorgasbord of treatments that I tried over the years include, but are not limited to: pain killers, chiropractic adjustment, Alexander Technique, acupuncture, Chinese cupping
Books Read April & May 2019
B”H You thought I forgot!? No, but where does the time go? We’re in June already! Kids out of school!? Crazy. But, did you read the book I did tell you about in this post, The Latte Factor? Hmmm, what exactly are you waiting for? By the way it’s SUCH an easy read, it makes for a perfect vacation book to read by the beach. I’m serious! (Oh and I
The Hidden Treasure
There’s a true and poignant story of a lost masterpiece discovered amidst the clutter in an eccentric man’s estate. Ernest Onians had spent most of the 1940s and ‘50s rummaging through estate sales across the English countryside, amassing a vast collection. Over the years, his personality evolved from passionate collector to paranoid hoarder. First, he filled his farm to the brim with stuff, and then proceeded to build shacks to
The Latte Factor
B”H I’m going to push off April’s Reading List for a few more days, and talk to you about a book that I just read, last week, on May 8th and 9th, specifically, because I don’t want you to wait till May’s Reading List to hear about it. It’s called The Latte Factor by renowened author and financial expert David Bach. Here’s why every woman I know should read it
Where’s My Ego?
B”H Knee deep into Passover cleaning, trying to rid every nook and cranny of my home from chametz, I also attempt to eradicate the chametz within my soul – the Ego. The Pharaoh that lives inside of us and tries to keep us in shackles, well grounded to our physicality, and distant from our highest self. He’s mighty and strong, arrogant, boastful. Oh, I know him when I see him.
Are we cleaning for Passover again!?
B”H As I search for crumbs in every nook and cranny of my chametz-infested home, I hear a voice in my head say in frustration: “Where did my kids hide their stash of leftover Purim hamentashen? Didn’t I do this last year? Isn’t Passover supposed to be the holiday of our freedom? This doesn’t feel too liberating to me!” Just before the Jews left Egypt, G-d commanded us to sacrifice
Books Read in March 2019
B”H March reading hasn’t been as exciting as February. In fact, it has been more of a choppy month. I’ve jumped around a few books, which is unusual for me. Even though I have yet to finish any of them, I was at the bookstore in Brooklyn, New York about to purchase three books! I bought books for my kids, but surely I will end up bring something home for
Passover Ready with Beyond the Balagan
B”H I know it’s not even Purim yet, but this year’s Pesach Productivity & Activity Bundle by Beyond the Balagan has brought a smile back to my face. (I have a sinus infection and am feeling kind of blah!) This bundle is so good ya’ll. I love that: my kids will get tons to keep them entertained as we get ready for Passover, my Seders’ will have those fun elements
Why I Don’t Do it All (and You Shouldn’t Either)
B”H Chodesh Tov, Ladies! Over the past few months, I’ve gotten numerous emails asking “how I do it all”. First of all, the answer to the question of how I do it all is, “I don’t!” I don’t do it all. I outsource and delegate, a lot! Why? Because I think it’s better to allocate my time to the things that: are really important to me, only I can do
Books read in February 2019
B”H B”H I read less in February, but I read! Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverted Kids Since I loved the precursor to this book so much (I told you about it here), I decided to read the version that Susan Cain wrote for kids and teens. I wanted to know if I should let my kids read it and I was excited that they would have access to
