Welcome to my blog!

Hello! My name is Paula and I love to write. I have an affinity for words and I want to tell tales about life and share experiences. I now have my very own canvas. I’m so excited! I have wanted to be an author since I was a child. I graduated from the Morris Journalism Academy in 2007. It’s funny how sometimes your passions are put on the back burner, while life goes on. You have probably heard the line “Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans”, (is it from a song? Not sure). I am blessed with the gifts of time and space now, and here I am doing what I love.Check out some of my articles.. Happy reading!

Advice For Every Woman



This was written by Pamela Redmond Satran. It was published May, 1997 by Glamour Magazine and although I believe that women (and men) should have and be whatever and whoever they want, I think this outstanding piece is a first class guide for ladies.


A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE…
enough money within her control to move out and rent a place of her own, even if she never wants to or needs to
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE…
something perfect to wear if the employer, or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE…
a youth she’s content to leave behind
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE…
a past juicy enough that she’s looking forward to retelling it in her old age
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE…
a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE….
one friend who always makes her laugh… and one who lets her cry
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE…
a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE…
eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a recipe for a meal, that will make her guests feel honored
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE…
a feeling of control over her destiny…
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
how to fall in love without losing herself
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
how to quit a job, break up with a lover, and confront a friend without ruining the friendship
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
when to try harder… and WHEN TO WALK AWAY
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
that she can’t change the length of her calves, the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
that her childhood may not have been perfect…but it’s over
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
what she would and wouldn’t do for love or more
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
how to live alone… even if she doesn’t like it
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
whom she can trust, whom she can’t, and why she shouldn’t take it personally
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
where to go…be it to her best friend’s kitchen table…or a charming inn in the woods…when her soul needs soothing
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
what she can and can’t accomplish in a day…a month…and a year
