The definition is “compassion or forgiveness shown toward... Read More Dear Dazzle: Strike a Pose

Dear Dazzle, I had an experience this morning that I found quite comical.  It was exactly what I needed to lift me out of the funk I have been in. Boy did it show up right on time! Most of you know that I left an abusive marriage. I am still unpacking how traumatic and abusive it really was.  It isn’t my favorite thing to... Read More

Dear Dazzle: Offer it again

Dear Dazzle,    It is really easy to stop offering what you have to offer when you hear the word no.  When you offer a product or program and the response is not positive or overwhelmingly yes, we have a tendency to file that away in the category of “no one wanted this” and stop offering it. Sometimes the way we offer... Read More
