Inspiration Time

In Creating Happiness, Recent Posts by Barbara Jacoby

Ah, the weekend!  Here it is, Saturday morning and I don’t have to get up at any particular time.  Some people might think that I am lazy for not getting up and “doing” tons of things before the day goes by but I have learned something else that is far more valuable to me.  I know that this is the …

The “Thank You” Factor

In Creating Happiness, Recent Posts by Barbara Jacoby

This past week, I had the opportunity to work with a group of people to help all of us to learn more about team building.  There was lots of great information that we all received and that was further expanded with our team building exercises.  But the one single thing that I found to help everyone as they alternately split …

The American Spirit of Giving

In Creating Happiness, Recent Posts by Barbara Jacoby

Yesterday I attended the Spring fundraiser held by the Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center Guild in Burbank, CA.  This hospital is very special to me as this is where I had all of my cancer-related surgeries so although I have attended their events in the past, this is the first one since my own experiences with this hospital.  And with …

Happy Easter

In Creating Happiness, Recent Posts by Barbara Jacoby

I personally subscribed to the rule that there are two things that I never discuss and they are religion and politics.  But just because Easter is a major religious holiday for all Christians doesn’t mean that there isn’t a message for everyone.  History does reveal that Jesus walked the earth, that He spent his time here helping, healing and teaching …

Lindsay Lohan In The Headlines Again

In Creating Happiness, Recent Posts by Barbara Jacoby

Living in the Hollywood area here in California, I can count on all of the celebrity stories being included in our local news and normally I completely ignore them.  This week, however, Lindsay Lohan was back in the news with major headlines indicating that if she doesn’t get help, she is going to die and that really caught my eye.  …

Marriage

We were missing in action from the radio show this week as Kirk and I were attending the marriage of his nephew (and Godson) to what appears to be the perfect mate for him.  Of course no one will ever know what goes on behind closed doors but these two really do seem to balance each other and to be …

Spring Fever

I can’t seem to focus on a single thing today.  I keep looking out the window and seeing the bright sunshine and am so excited that this is the first time in 5 weekends that it hasn’t rained.  I know that the temperatures are suppose to be around 80 degrees for the next few days and we are now back …

Why I Watch the Oscars – Watch Red Carpet LIVE

In Creating Happiness, Recent Posts by Barbara Jacoby

As I sit here watching the first of many pre-Oscar shows, I couldn’t help but wonder why I was drawn to this event.  I really don’t care who wins those statuettes as I think that is more important for the industry people making the decisions about who they want to hire for their next movies.  I will watch the opening …

Olympic Inspiration

In Creating Happiness, Recent Posts by Barbara Jacoby

As the closing ceremonies are now just hours away, I can’t help but continue to ponder on these Olympic games and the effect that they have had on me.  I have watched and enjoyed and appreciated the games every 4 years since I was a little girl.  But this year, things are different and in some ways so much more …

Cancer: Helping Others

In Breast Cancer, Recent Posts by Barbara Jacoby

As I concluded a second Let Life Happen radio broadcast last evening on the subject about “how did you react when someone told you that they had cancer”, I wanted to thank each and every person who posted a comment or shared a story on this subject.  As we all know, that is a really hard subject with which to deal and I …
