Ramsey - 23 Jul 2016

It has been quite a year. And at this moment, like so many from the past year, i am reminded how important it is to savour where we are right now and how many blessings we have. It can be easy to get caught up in petty grievances and day…

It’s a new day and the adventure has already begun. In the past year, I’ve gotten married, gotten pregnant and left my job. My husband has moved over to the UK and just started his new job. Busy, if complicated times.
I find myself contemplating what I should…

It’s amazing how life seems to get in the way sometimes. Be clear of what you want, and don’t stop until you find it. I’ve always been pretty open minded. Who knew where I would end up. I always took steps to make sure it wasn’t anywhere bad, but I…

It may seem a bit late to be talking about New Year’s resolutions but it shouldn’t be. So often we seem to forget about them by the end of the first week of January. When I sat down on the 1st and looked at my resolutions, I found my 2011…

My step-grandfather was buried yesterday. Hard to imagine he is gone, even though I didn’t grow up with him. A loving, witty, sharp man to the very end of his wonderfully long life. He was also always wonderful to my mother. My thoughts go to his wife, my equally incredible…

That’s where we find ourselves at this time of year. As Americans, it is a time to look at our lives as they are at the moment, relish the people we love and acknowledge the wonderful blessings that have come our way.  We all have our different traditions - and…

It’s been a long cold winter for many of us. As we hibernate, we have a tendency to collect lots of things. Some of them to keep us warm, some to protect us from the elements and some just to keep us company. While they are nice to have in…

It’s a new year. A new decade. What will it bring? Whatever you want. You have to stay open to the opportunities but you also have to seek them out. They can’t always find you, certainly not the good ones. Think about what you’d like to get out of 2010,…

It’s funny how those three words can mean so much. They reveal feelings and set up expectations. They are used lightly by some and sparingly by others. But what is it that guides us on our decision to say it. Attraction? Sex? Intimacy? Connection? I’ve had quite a few friends…

What does that really imply anyway? A higher power has decided that this is my destiny? All the signs are pointing to yes? Maybe, maybe not. Signs may be pointing, but where this falls down for me is understanding what they are pointing toward. I don’t know what “is meant…

I am just back from a trip to Abu Dhabi. I had a rather large work event there which involved many people from around the world, as well as a few locals. “Local” in Abu Dhabi is a bit of a misnomer as most of the local don’t need to…

“I was just being honest.” How many times have we heard (or said) that? A friend once said to me “yes, but were you being honest to help or hurt?” That’s an interesting question. It is easy to hide behind honesty. And don’t get me wrong, it’s important to be…

The funny thing about making the world a better place is that it ISN’T a full time job. You don’t have do to it every second of every day. But you do have to do it when it counts. The other day I was walking down the street when I…

I just returned from a trip to the US and I can honestly say there is nothing better than landing in Philadelphia with the warm smiles and welcome. The customs agent, as I raced by and handed in my sheet, said “Welcome back. Have a safe ride home.” “Thank You.”…

We all get a little antsy sometimes. If it’s not antsy, it’s the feeling we are trudging through mud. Either way, we want to be going somewhere, making progress, moving forward. I had a boss who once said, “I don’t care if we go the wrong direction, I just don’t…

A new week begins. It’s a fresh start. Even if it doesn’t always feel like it. It’s another opportunity to look at something a different way, get yourself out there and take a new step.

Sometimes we take life so seriously, when what we really need to do is…

The world would be a better place if fear played a more productive role in our lives. So often fear leads us to choose to not do things. Fear of the dark, the unknown, the consequences. Sometimes we don’t even realise it is guiding us. We just make the safer…

Ramsey - 03 Sep 2009

Be a Better Place isn’t only about what I want or what you want. It’s about appreciating the different things - specifically- that we each want. Last night, at the official launch of Be a Better Place, a group of us came together and shared what we all think would…

Ramsey - 02 Sep 2009

There are so many things we want. For ourselves, for our families and friends, and for the world. And they are attainable. They aren’t out of reach. And often the things we want are things that create a better world for us all.

And that leads me to wonder, what…
