About Me ~ Welcome

Mary Biz here… Welcome to my blog.

My goal is to help you become more passionate and proactive through personal anecdotes and other findings, on wisdom, life, humor, and other assorted things that I’ve learned since kindergarten.

Ernest Hemingway once wrote,”It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”

So What’s Your Journey?

I should make this disclaimer at the beginning… I am not, nor have I ever been, perfect! As a matter of fact, I may never be perfect. I do always strive to become better. And in case I can’t be better, I strive to, at least, have lots of fun!

Have You Discovered Your Role?

William Shakespeare wrote, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts.” (As You Like It, Act II, Scene VII).

Are You Meeting Your Own Expectations?

The great philosopher Socrates once made a bold and daring statement that, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” Likewise, another philosopher, Santayana, once observed that, “He who does not remember the past is condemned to repeat it.” All that being said, we learn from our mistakes and the mistakes of others. Imagine a world where we can share the bounty and pick from the fruit of the vine? What a Wonderful World that would be!

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is You er than You.” (Dr. Seuss)

While I freely admit to imperfection, my years of nursing (working with the sick and suffering), my years of teaching (working with families as caring and imperfect as my own), my enduring friendships (hearts and warts included), my long-standing, and strong marriage (again as imperfect as any other), and my rich love affair with my own family (both nuclear and extended, dysfunctional, crazy, profoundly happy, loving, supportive, …not enough adjectives), my years of being a student, with all the stresses and joys ~ still in progress ~ (learning is a lifelong affair), my degree in psychology has never prepared me to be the expert that life experience has provided. I am grateful to share my stories. I am humbled to share yours. I am thankful for the journey.

If you have ever once wondered, about life and its nuances, how to navigate situations, or how to respond to them in a proactive way, then this blog is for you. I look forward to connecting with you.
