Wendy’s Window-Succeeding With Passion: Designing The Life You’ve Always Dreamed Of!
May 23, 2019
I’ve been in the business of helping people figure out their lives in different ways for many years now.  What I’ve learned is that most people go through the motions of living, but they rarely live a life that is truly fulfilled.  They search for the next thing verses enjoying the moment and finding the beauty in the present.  There’s nothing wrong with growing and doing new things, but when we do it to fill a void or to run from something in our lives, it is not acceptable. If we want to live the life we’ve dreamed of, or more importantly the life we were designed to live, we must find our passion and purpose and live every moment to fulfill it. We have to stop putting our value in the wrong things. ... read more »

Wendy’s Window: What is the Plus in the PLUS Awards?
April 4, 2019
I’ve always been grateful for people who go above and beyond and have a heart for helping others. As a child I experienced abandonment by my biological mother and sexual abuse by my father.  I was raised primarily by my paternal grandmother who instilled certain core values into me that have guided my life.  My grandmother encouraged my activities in school, church and community and because of the various activities I was involved with, I became a “product of the community.”  As I worked in the community, the community sowed back into my life. Many people went above and beyond to help me, and they became the PLUS in my life. ... read more »
Wendy’s Window: King is Queen
March 21, 2019
Many of us are familiar with Gayle King, but we usually think of her as Oprah’s bestie.  A few years ago, while attending the California Women’s Conference when Maria Shriver was California’s First Lady and the leader of the conference, I was given a chance to go back stage and meet Ms. King. I found her very approachable and friendly.  It was a short encounter, but enough time to leave a positive impression on me. Although Gayle has a strong personality and she has accomplished many things during her career, I think some people can under estimate her because of her relationship with Oprah, but don’t sleep on her because she is a queen. ... read more »
Wendy’s Window- ‘Are You Feeling Loved?’
February 14, 2019
When I think back as far as elementary school, I remember how exciting it was to go to the store and buy the packages of Valentine’s Day Cards. It was such a big deal to bring them home and write your name on the cards, along with the names of your classmates on each of the envelopes.  I found it interesting how there were usually just enough cards in the package to give one to each student in my class and a special one for the teacher. It was as if the card companies knew exactly how many children were in classrooms across America.  On Valentine’s Day we would have a little party that usually consisted of a heart-shaped cookie and punch, and we would go around and give each other our valentines. If my memory serves me correctly, there always seemed to be that “special someone” you hoped would give you a card and if they didn’t your little heart would drop to the floor. ... read more »

Wendy’s Window: And Still I Rise
January 24, 2019
The news and media continue to unveil more and more stories about different levels of sexual abuse, sex trafficking and or harassment towards women and girls almost daily. Although we know this behavior has existed since the beginning of time, it is time the covers are thrown off and the truth be exposed.  I am sensitive to these stories because as a survivor, my heart breaks whenever I hear them and I understand how these women must feel. Women and girls who’ve experienced any type of abuse or domestic violence struggle with self-esteem issues and it oftentimes influences their psyche and future choices.  It is a process for us to dig ourselves out and understand that we still can rise.  ... read more »
Wendy’s Window-Reset, Recalibrate & Shift Your Mindset About Making Resolutions
January 10, 2019
As I dissect the meaning of a resolution, especially the part referring to anaction of solving a problem, I realized that I do have a problem because historically I always viewed resolutions in a negative light.  I now understand that I must reset, recalibrate and be mindful of the resolutions that I make and how they are good for me. Perhaps, in the past, I have been in denial because I felt defeated before I even got started. As I’ve gotten older, the main area where I feel the most challenged is with my discipline around health and exercise.  But I know that eating a steady healthy diet (allowing opportunities to treat yourself from time to time), along with some level of consistent exercise is critical to an overall healthy life. ... read more »
