If you wanted to leave some money to your children, how would you split it between them? You could come up with numbers based upon their likely need for help. Or you could simply divide it equally…after all you love them all, well…equally. Equal distribution is probably the most common way of dividing assets. Yet, what about the situation where one of the kids is very successful financially and has no need for your money? What message does an unequal gift send?

How many minutes ticked away as we waited for this subtle cool to arrive, feeling the pervasive heat embracing us like an fur coat? The day was an overzealous host, benevolent and giving of warmth, when it was least wanted. We pull the shades down, and sit in the warm darkness of the indoors.

Snakes are a fact of life in Myanmar (Burma). There are more than 150 species of snakes in the country, and 40 of those are venomous. While King Cobras and Vipers are common, the most well-known snake of Myanmar is the Burmese python.

I could have been highly offended, and justifiably so. Instead, I made a conscious decision not to be. His words, although definitely not seasoned with salt, summed up for me in a nutshell the shared plight of many women over 40. This particularly applies to those of us who, either by choice or by circumstance, remain single. Fostered by a youth-enamored society, the assumption is that rather than being in any way enhanced by age, women are tarnished by it.

At the age of 30, I was diagnosed with Multiple Personality Disorder. The diagnosis was actually a blessing, as well as a curse. The blessing? It clarified, identified, and explained bewildering behaviors, irrational fears, and confounding symptoms that I'd experienced my entire life. It set things in order. Now things made sense. I made sense, and I begin to see myself as I never had before.

Picture this: walking in high heels is the equivalent of walking on a ramp. When you wear high heels, the angle of your body changes to adjust for the incline of your feet. As you can imagine, the downward force places extra pressure on the balls of your feet.

Money does not just buy things but also experiences. How many beautiful memories come to mind because you gave yourself permission to spend money on a new experience or adventure.

We use money every day but perhaps money and happiness doesn't even belong together in the same sentence. Does money truly make you happy? Do we usually make money decisions based on emotions, not facts?

In my ten years of living on a sailboat, a typical bad day was a dragging anchor, a ripped sail, and our toddler throwing a vital tool overboard. At sea as on land, it always happened in three's. That chapter in my life impressed certain truths upon me, and although many of them were elicited from a sea or boat-related experience, the underlying moral of the story applies equally well to my life on land today. I now find these truths to be self-evident.
