My Breakfast With Jermaine

By momondays | Sep 17, 2018

I read and watch news like most of us and was becoming stressed by the horrors the media presents us with daily. The more I watched, the more fearful I became that I would find myself in any of those terrifying situations. My terrifying situation happened unexpectedly while on holiday in the U.S. and it…

Dreams have a way of find the light of day, if you let them…

By momondays | Jul 30, 2018

A few years back, I was fortunate enough to see B.B. King at his blues club in Orlando. I was doubly fortunate enough to be sitting in the front row — not that much farther away than the screen you are reading this on is from you. It was a powerful experience, not only because…

Keeping it real

By momondays | Apr 26, 2018

I am a big believer in synchronicity and that things happening for a good reason… at just the right time! You see, I finished writing my momondays talk a while ago, yet didn’t even notice that I was being completely inauthentic in real life. I was in the process of getting a job, one that…

What makes momondays different?

I am reminded of poet David Whyte who once said, “It takes tremendous courage to live any life at all. Even if it is only tending a simple garden outside one’s kitchen window.” For me, that is what momondays is about… ordinary people like me standing on stage to tell my story in a way…

Staying in the game

By momondays | Apr 14, 2018

To feel the moment, be in the moment and be grateful of this moment is what I try to get to. I have one more day of life to make a difference, to lift myself up and be of some account. Having gratitude has pulled me through, even for the small things, and when I…

Gratitude

By momondays | Mar 21, 2018

​Today I am grateful for the inspiration to pen my thoughts. Being a visual artist, painting is my language for expressing my thoughts and experiences. So why try to speak in a different language? That’s where gratitude comes in. Today my heart is overflowing with JOY, and the only way to let it flow and…

The Power of Serendipity

By momondays | Dec 17, 2017

After almost five decades of reading business how-to books, articles, on-line submissions and periodicals, one of the most significant points to resonate with me has come from Susan Scott’s great book on “Fierce Conversations”, published in 2002. In it, Scott suggests that we should approach every conversation of significance in our lives, as if it…

The Economics of Happiness

By momondays | Nov 4, 2017

The idea behind my philosophy came from a point inside of me when I realized that at my core, my ultimate desire in life, is to help people realize they can be happy. They don’t need to accept things as how they are, or definite. They can instead take control over their outcomes, or play…
