OUR LOVED ONES: THE FORGOTTEN ONES IN OUR STRUGGLE WITH A SEIZURE DISORDER

My previous post about Matthew Perry’s death was a tough one to write, but it made me think of Brooke Shields’ recent revaluation – she suffered a seizure in September. Her opening up about that day and how those she was with handled the situation made me think of two other people who recently opened p about their loved ones struggling with the seizure disorder. THEIR words proved one thing: the struggles of the loved ones of those suffering seizures aren’t talked about enough. This blog post is a start!

WHAT MATTHEW PERRY’S CHANDLER BING CAN TEACH US ABOUT LIFE AND STARTING OVER

You can call me the ultimate ‘Friends’ fan. I used to watch the show religiously when it initially aired. It was a show that taught me English, and it was a show that taught me about friendships and I didn’t have any. To no surprise, it was very shocking when Matthew Perry passed away on October 28th, and his death got me thinking of what his character, Chandler Bing, means to me.

IS SOCIAL MEDIA THE REAL CAUSE FOR SOMEONE TO LOSE OUT ON PROFESSIONAL OPPORTUNITIES?

The reunion show of ‘Selling Sunset’ had Nicole in hot water for her recent social media activity. Luckily for her, it didn’t affect her professionally; only that her co-workers hate her even more and the company culture at the real estate agency is… not the best. But this entire ordeal got me thinking a lot about how OUR social media activity can affect our professional lives. So I ask the question, is social media the real make-it-or-break-it?

WHAT WOMEN (AND MEN) MUST DO IN 2024 AND ONWARD TO ENSURE BETTER WORKING CONDITIONS

It was a big surprise for a lot of people when Michelle Williams was announced as the narrator for Britney Spears’ audio-book, ‘The Woman In Me.’ Williams is a great actress who’s worked her butt off for decades. Sadly she’s mostly known for difficult personal life, specifically her relationship with Heath Ledger and beyond. So it made me think of how us regular women are belittled and diminished and treated less than at work, and I tell you why, how, and what we, as women, as well as men, need to do for this to change.

WOMEN – THE DISGRACED MONEY MAKING MACHINES IN BUSINESS

Britney Spears’ memoir, ‘The Woman In Me’, came out last month, and we learned a lot about the pop star that we never knew before; from her relationships with her family, collaborators, friends like Paris Hilton, and relationships, like the one she had with Justin Timberlake. Her coverage of her relationship with Timberlake got me thinking of of the disgraceful treatment of women in the business. Consider this a continuation of the previous post.

WHAT A COMPANY CULTURE THAT SUPPORTS AND PROTECTS WOMEN LOOKS LIKE

The most recent season of ‘Love Is Blind’ was a complete sh*tshow, and it was evident just by my previous post. But there was a lot more to it, including Renee and Carter’s unreleased storyline. This particular storyline made me reflect on what a company culture that supports and protects women NEEDS to look like. Here, we’ll be talking about sexual assault and abuse, so consider this as a trigger waning.
