Last week I was planning an IG post about being tough when life isn’t fair. And let’s be honest, life often isn’t. Whether we get hit with little jabs or a giant center punch, we may at times feel as though we are being bantered about by the waves of misfortune. Some of us can… Read More When Life Isn’t Fair
We talk about midlife being a beginning rather than an ending – an opportunity to refine, recharge or completely reinvent ourselves.

If you follow me on Instagram (@helengreenwell) you’ve seen a few posts and stories about the way I’ve been challenging myself with #75Hard. What the heck is this thing? First, a little background.

Maria was fabulous. My biggest issue… Read More Vamping the Vampire Facial – My CIT Microneedling Experience
How many times have you asked a friend what you should do in an upcoming event and heard the response, “Just be yourself.” Up for a job interview? “Just be yourself.” Giving a speech? “Be yourself.” I heard a great lyric to a song this morning: “be yourself ‘cuz everybody else is taken.” Isn’t that… Read More The Importance of Being Yourself
I’m back! It’s been an incredibly busy last few weeks. Work is busy, life is busy – everything has been busy! I’ve been doing my best to fit in a little rest and down time and it hasn’t left much time to blog. And then, to my chagrin, I discovered I didn’t actually post a… Read More The Value of a Little Rest
