By Linda S. Fitzgerald / August 30, 2019 / 2 Comments

Persistence, the Daughter of Success! Each week I get a great e-letter from Rob Hatch, partner with Chris Brogan at Owner Media. This week was exceptional and got me to thinking about the importance of persistence and perseverance in achieving what we are most passionate about. Whether the passion is personal, professional or spiritual. Rob…

I Hate the Thought, When Only A Cliche’ Will do!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / August 23, 2019 / 0 Comments

I Hate the Thought, I hate the thought behind a common cliche’ we use when describing how to accomplish HUGE important tasks. You know, the one about eating an elephant! I get the context; but the vision of doing so is repugnant. It’s certainly true that one accomplishes elephant-sized projects by chipping away at them…

A Change of Seasons. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / August 2, 2019 / 0 Comments

A Change of Seasons. . . It’s really not a change of season as much as a change of mood and focus. I speak of having taken the month of July off from blogging. It would be great to report that the time off was consumed by a vacation at the beach, long sauntering walks…

May I Join You?

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / June 21, 2019 / 0 Comments

May I Join You? Last week when talking about community and the value of “tribes” as defined by the brilliant Seth Godin, I stated the following: “By whatever name – Godin calls them “Tribes”; we call them a Neighborhood-  they are one and the same. Vehicles of connection. Opportunities for change.” At least 2 women in…

The Attic Holds Treasures! It has been another on of those weeks. The end came before the middle and now the end is near and I have no post prepared. I remember that I promised a great one about community and I’m not the least prepared.  It seems yesterday was Monday, so today should be Tuesday,…

Last Week’s Horns. . . Last week when I wrote the blog post; I was sittin’ on the horns of a dilemma! And it was not a pleasant place to be. But time marches on and as it does; Papa God removes the sting from the horns and resolves the dilemma to our benefit. I…

Sittin’ On The Horns. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / May 31, 2019 / 4 Comments

Painting the picture! Nearly a year ago, an organization I helped to start in my home area took on a strange complexion. New leadership who had taken over from me when I served a “pro-tem” position turned nasty and ugly. Suddenly, I was the villian from whom stuff needed to be hidden. A secret meeting…

The Likelihood of a Cat’s Death. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / April 26, 2019 / 8 Comments

Cat Got Your Tongue?  When I was a young woman, I rarely spoke my mind. And when I did, my words were so far from how I really felt that one might accuse me of insincerity – even hypocrisy. I definitely let the cat have my tongue. How did I handle pent-up feelings? I talked…

Thoughts of Success & Failure ~ From the AWI Archives!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / March 15, 2019 / 2 Comments

Sometimes We Must. . .  Sometimes we must adjust our days and weeks to accommodate life events we hadn’t planned for. Such is the case for me the past several weeks. Friend’s sudden illness, hospitalization and subsequent stay in skilled care threw my usual schedule into disarray. It also intruded on writing fresh content for…

Provocative Thoughts on “Sisterhood”!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / February 15, 2019 / 0 Comments

“Sisterhood”. Good word or not? What does “Sisterhood” mean to you? Simple question that may or may not be simple to answer. Recently I posed a series of questions to our Facebook group The Neighborhood in preparation for the AWI relaunch later this year. I opened the question series as follows: “Why are you a…
