Bulletin Board Bombast

by Carol Hess on November 15, 2012

I’m a member of one of those online local community bulletin boards.  What a comment those bulletin boards are on our society – good and bad.

The Kindness of Strangers

by Carol Hess on October 22, 2012

Every weekday morning, I start my day by working out in the local YMCA pool. I never in a million years thought I would get up at the ungodly hour of 5 am to do such a thing. I also never thought in a million years I would come to enjoy it so much. Yes, […]

The Time Has Come — Part 2

by Carol Hess on October 4, 2012

In my last blog post, I talked about the transformational shift that’s occurring on our planet right now.  We are being asked to let go of our old ways and surrender to the new – a new that has not yet made itself felt or seen except to a few.  A new that will lead […]

What’s in a Name Tag?

by Carol Hess on August 22, 2012

“I’ll bring the name tags.” That was me volunteering at a women’s empowerment group I’ve recently joined.  No big deal, right?  So I’m bringing some name tags.  Who cares? Me.  Because it was one of those precious moments when I realized how far I had come in this personal development journey of mine. I have a brass […]
