What’s New With Mary and Paul


Greatness Challenge – Paul – “THINKING”

No Comments Oh, Mary!


So….it’s been a few days…

The hardest part of this challenge is the “thinking” part. My mind races so….and reels about..it has been the most difficult for me to do.
Dressing well is….well…what I do.
Changing my story….second biggest challenge. I have many stories….and since my mind is always working. I’m always working on a story. Exercise has been spotty…but improved.


Greatness Challenge – Mary – “Is Your Life in The Toilet?”

No Comments Oh, Mary!


Well mine is literally! My phone fell in last night before I taped the “Oh, Mary!” show!

But it was a gift, truly a gift! It was great not to be on the grid this morning. I did miss things, but it all worked out! I actually felt more focused than I have been in awhile.

When I thought my life was in the toilet, contacts, connections, pictures, ALL OF IT! But the truth is, when the phone was out of my life, I was living.

Put down your phone, read a real book, maybe not check facebook and see what happens, you will like what you see.

Greatness Challenge – Mary – “Revenge doesn’t work anymore”

No Comments Oh, Mary!


How many times do we think, if the person that wronged gets what is coming to them, we will feel better?

Well I am here to say it doesn’t work anymore for me.

There are always three sides to a story, your side, their side and the universe’s side. Now as I try to act like a grown up most of the time, I have to see my part of it and my behavior toward someone that wronged me, has been less than stellar and it is getting in my way.

So how does grudges, feelings of revenge, etc…get in your way?

Are you ready to let go? I am.

Greatness Challenge – Mary – “When it is Dark”

No Comments Oh, Mary!


Interesting my blog on 10/15 was I will not be SILENT and then I went into hiding this weekend.

I am an upbeat person most of the time, but then things can rock you to the core and then it is harder to get out of that darkness.

Yesterday I wanted to sleep and sleep and sleep. I was in a funk but my daughter wanted me to take her to the carnival.

I decided, to say yes and not no and it was exactly what I needed.

I had fun because she had fun. Okay that may sound completely co-dependent, but the truth is, sometimes we can be set free by watching our children be joyous!

When we left the carnival she had a big smile on her face and sighed, “Mom I had fun and thank you!” This kid is great!

What gets you out of a funk? Can you be joyous and free?
