Your Stress is Stalking You

July 20, 2017 - By: Helene Furst

Here it comes again. That feeling of being watched, overwhelmed and afraid. It’s daylight, but you feel it watching from the corner across the room. Stress. Anxiety. However you look at it, it is scaring the bejeezus out of you. But that’s OK because I’m going to fill you in on a HUGE secret. We all get freaked out. I am starting a new job, I just moved, my baby is starting high school, and my middle guy is leaving for college. In the middle of Nowhere…remember Courage the Cowardly Dog and that farmhouse…yeah? Well, then you get the idea. And my stress is most assuredly sitting in that window of the stakeout house. It’s waiting for the prime opportunity to jump me. But I’ll be ready.

It’s no secret that I am a student of Zen and meditation. I NEED that serenity in my life, and I have just learned about an excellent type of meditati... [Continued]

To App or Not to App, That is Thy Budget

So we’ve been doing this budget thing for ooh, a month or so? I know I have mentioned a few websites or apps before, like Learnvest, etc. But what if you need help on the go? Deciding how you’re going to track your budget is critical to your success. A budget is entirely useless unless you can keep up with it 24/7. Without some vigilance on your part, no matter your intentions and how fancy or great you planned the budget, it will become useless. You must keep track of all new charges all the time…that’s where on the go apps come into play.

The most important thing to remember always is that the BEST budgeting system is the one you ACTUALLY use! If you have to use whiteboard walls, post it notes and flashing lights – if you don’t use it, you lose. So let’s talk about what would make an app ideal for YOU and your lifestyle. My perfe...

Respect, How to Win at Life

July 13, 2017 - By: Helene Furst

Hey there peeps! Hope your summer is still going along fine, and that you haven’t forgotten to take care of your sweet, precious self. I want to revisit the whole idea of respect. It’s complex, really, that positive vibe you get when you are kind to others, etc. But what IS respect?

Respect, in my very humble opinion lovelies, is all about how you treat others. It’s that sense of understanding other people’s feelings, believing in yourself and other’s abilities, and generally, being that awesome human you were tossed into the universe to be. Respect is a two-way street, but if you respect yourself and others, well, then others will treat you with respect as well.

The way we show our respect to any human being varies from one person to that of the other because of our cultures, religion and the environment where we live. Basi... [Continued]

Welcome to Morning Beans. Grab a cup of your favorite coffee, pull up a chair, and let's chat! I'm Helene and I am many things: writer, artist, mother, daughter, wife and friend. I write for all of us: the overworked homemaker, the executive goddesses, the poets, artists, and the wild hearted women

I believe life is about living your dreams, and sharing your story. And we all have stories. It's about being human and sometimes fallible.

Come visit often, and let my words move you, motivate you, and make you smile.

I believe in the power of words, in colorful conversations (often with strangers) and in the bright spark of friendship.

Welcome new friends.
