Do you NEED a relationship to be happy?Click here to read the full post...October 9th, 2014Family and Relationships
I’ve had recent conversations with two women who recently experienced breakups. Both are devastated, scared and on an immediate course to find a replacement to help them feel better. Who can blame them? It doesn’t feel good to be rejected or be alone. So the typical response is ease the pain and do it as fast as we can. Often our first line of defense is to fill the gaping whole with someone new. Loneliness averted. Pain eased. So far so good. Until it isn’t.
While I understand our desire to avoid or lessen the pain of rejection or loneliness, what concerns me about the answer these women seek is the instability of it. If our happiness and peace of mind are continue »Tags: happy bitch, I want to find love, I'm so lonely
Bragging RightsClick here to read the full post...
When I think back as far as I can remember on the self esteem/self worth bandwagon I rode, I realize what interesting (read wacked) turns many of us take.
When we’re little, we’re often told we can do and be anything we put our minds to. Most of us were regularly told how smart and capable we were and praised consistently for small achievements like tying our shoes, learning to properly write the number 5 and even coloring between the lines (mostly). These days, we even give 5-year-olds diplomas for graduating Kingergarten. ???

A Case for Changing Your Tune – Special Post for TunigoClick here to read the full post...
Hey there! I recently wrote a fun post for the music site Tunigo and thought I would share it here with you:
“Life’s a bitch and then you die” they say.
What I want to know is, who is the dimwitted “they” and why would they start such an ugly, self-defeating rumor? Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not perfect and ashamedly admit the phrase has stumbled its way out of my mouth a time or two (along with some colorful words that would turn a truck driver’s head). And anyone on the outside looking in would fully (click here to read the full post on Tunigo)Tags: happy bitch, Keryl Pesce, Tunigo
When Life Piles it On and You Wonder Who’s Holding the ShovelClick here to read the full post...
So life's a real Bitch (capital "B" intended) lately, you say. You're doing your thing – keeping out of trouble (well, most of the time – a little might be fun), working hard, taking care of everyone around you – demanding boss, incompetent co-worker, whiney girlfriend and even whinier boyfriend. Everyone else gets what they need except you. The only one who showers you with unconditional love, affection, attention and adoration is your dog. And even SHE has crap you have to clean up.

You don’t need a Search Team to find Happiness at Work!Click here to read the full post...
Whether it is a boss who is borderline psycho (OK, hands in the air – who’s had one of those?), a company which doesn’t show its appreciation for your hard work, a co-worker who barely deserves the right to be called a “worker” or the conditions or functions of your work sucking, there are ways you can be happier at work.
In a nutshell, you’ve got two options. You can either change your circumstances or change you.
Let’s address the first option.
Change your circumstances:
1 – Follow your passion.
Take 30 quiet minutes away from distractions (I know it may be tough, but figure it out) and do some blue-sky thinking. Temporarily set aside continue »Tags: happiness expert, happy at work, happy bitch, hate co workers, Keryl Pesce, work related stress

If your body could talk, what would it say to you? "Thank you for feeding me healthy foods and exercising me. I feel great. I look great. Oh, and thank you for the importance you place on getting plenty of sleep so I can rejuvenate myself. I've shown my appreciation by removing those bags under our eyes."
