The About Page

The About Page

 I believe in positive kismet/fate and write two blogs; Mirth and Motivation and Positive Kismet where I share motivational/inspirational lifestyle pieces offering life tips, wellness advice, women/girls issues, creative expressions/music concerts, reviews, interviews, social media ruminations, some humor, goodwill pieces, and insights on people, places, and events that shape our lives. Some of my posts are creative pieces, haiku poems, or photography.

I wear several hats: I’m a Mother of two, an educator/reading specialist, Lifestyle writer/blogger, amateur photographer, wanderlust, fitness/yoga, and social media enthusiast. Did I mention that I’m also a Licensed NYS RE Broker? Ha! Nothing gives me more pleasure than a good laugh with friends and family, great music, encouraging people, great food, fashion and accessories, and an occasional jaunt to somewhere around the world. I enjoy working with environmentally and socially conscious brands to share their message through social media and bring in new customers. I’d love to hear from you. You can email me at: contact(@)mirthandmotivation(.)com Reach out and connect with me!

WHO: I shared some specifics above. Additionally, I like to view myself as an internationalist. Growing up on three continents exposed me to people/places that remain culturally rich and varied, and helped me develop a love for traveling/meeting new people and enjoying cuisines from around the globe. My career path has been predominantly in academia, teaching mainly at the university level in Women’s Studies, Comparative Literature, and Writing. Corporate Training called me before the last market crash and led me down the path to blogging. It has been a long and curious journey that no 5 or 10-year plan could have predicted; and I had one. One of many life lessons that have sustained me is my belief that staying open and flexible to the magic of possibilities can lead to exciting and rewarding places we never imagined.

For relaxation, toying with new gadgets, gardening, cooking creative dishes, studying martial arts and yoga suit me just fine; I’m a life long yoga and meditation student. If you’ve read my blog, you’d know that I’m an avid reader (no surprise there) who loves reading across genres; however, I’d admit that I am partial to nonfiction especially autobiographies. I suppose most readers/writers have a bit of the voyeur in them…

WHAT: My interests in learning, teaching, and traveling continue to inform my writing and work. I love exchanging ideas and hearing fresh and positive perspectives on myriad topics that shape our professional and personal lives; I’m drawn to topics on family, business, health, relationships, work, food, life, and more. Hence, my blog is a reflection of my interests and life experiences. (See a few posts listed below).

WHY: My family, friends, faith, and colleagues have been instrumental to my growth therefore I remember, with gratitude, how important it is to encourage others. Mirth and Motivation is a doorway to sharing my appreciation for life, for people, and for those things that add meaning to life. Until we walk in another person’s shoes, we are not in a position to judge them. My blog is about sharing useful information and encouragement, not judgment. I’d love to hear what makes you tick.

My About Page tells you about me and the who/what/why of this blog. This part shares some insights on my blog posts and documents a few from my archives. I wanted to create an easy way for people to check the authorship and timeline of a post. I will highlight archives that represent the general thrust of this blog.

Some Insights On my Blog Posts: My goal has always been to find positive ways to inspire, inform, encourage and motivate others and myself. My posts cover a wide spectrum of Lifestyle topics and the occasional humor piece. Remember this blog is Mirth and… Each post carries a Positive Motivation Tip and I connect each tip to some aspect of the post’s content. The tips can be found at the bottom of each post.

Occasionally, I might add a Mirthful Tip/Funny quote to a post. When I started writing this blog in 2008, my intention was to add a positive, informational, and inspirational note for the agents/managers/staff at work. Over time, it has taken on an eclectic, lifestyle vibe which is diverse and much appreciated by my readership. Since I don’t want us to forget that I write mirthful/humor posts too, (honestly, great humor is not easy to write), I’ve added a few below. Do check out the trackback humor pieces at the bottom of the page.

In October 2014, I took a leap and started my Motivation Mondays series. It was a leap of faith and, as I wrote on the first one called Motivation Mondays: Dream, I took Rumi’s advice to heart and went after those breeze at dawn secrets. Three hundred and thirteen (313 WoW!) posts later and growing, I am grateful for the support and revelations. Thank you everyone for your visits/comments/shares and love!

As I enter my 10th year as a blogger, I’m grateful for all the changes that have taken place on this blog. It has grown in leaps and bounds, had its share of hiccups, and is now monetized. I am grateful for all the help I’ve received from readers, WordPress Staff, BlogHer/SheKnows, SITSGirls, sponsors/brands, and the many visitors who’ve supported this blog over the years. On some levels, it has been incredibly demanding, however, I’ve come to realize that the best approach is to adopt a beginner’s mind and go with the flow. Life is about movement and adjusting to the ebb and flow of conditions.

Each year, I start anew on Mirth and Motivation by observing all that is going on around me. Doing that has helped me gain tremendous insight, set goals, and formulate plans for this blog. I am grateful for the lessons and blessings gained from my observations. Please Contact at contact(@)mirthandmotivation(.)com You may also connect with me by leaving a comment on a post and/or by connecting on Google++Elizabeth Obih-Frank, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram. Thank You! Be Happy. Be A Blessing to Others. You Are A Blessing To Someone!

    What a cool blog! I’m going to be perusing your site!

      You are always welcome! Stay a while next time and update us on the lovely days in East Texas.

    WOW! Another person who works internationally–not sure what kind of a trainer you are but I work in international development in education and gender. As you well know if means a somewhat chaotic lifestyle. Actually, I’ve taken a long term project in Cairo, Egypt and am very much loving the stability even if my family (including my husband) are all in the US. Living overseas provides such a different perspective on life don’t you think? My kids grew up in Sub-Saharan Africa and it’s always been interesting to see how they navigated life because of that experience. Even when we lived in NOVA where there are lots of kids who’ve had int’l experiences teachers would comment on how socially aware ours were compared to other kids their age. I think it was because we were doing work in the grassroots and not living in the capital cities–there were no American schools or clubs memberships. They saw the reality of life for the folks living in those countries up close. Anyway, don’t want this to be a missive. Glad I stumbled unto your blog from SITS. I’ll be sure to drop by again and follow your thoughts here.

    • 27/01/2011 10:12 pm

      Hi Diane,
      I’m glad we connected on SITS and continued our exchange here. Like you, my training experience is long and varied. I’ve taught at the university level, worked as a corporate trainer, a non-profit facilitator/trainer, a motivational coach/speaker and an independent consultant. It has been an exciting, albeit challenging, career path and I look forward to more opportunities to work in the field.
      Thank you for your thoughtful comment… How are you doing? The last time I stopped by your blog, I couldn’t leave a comment. Do hope life is treating you with grace and that you are doing well in Egypt. How are things going there? Do stop by and update me when you can. 🙂

    I love the quote at the top of this post , “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” This is so true when you stop to think about it. If you’re always busy planning and worrying about the future, life will slip by and before you know it, years will have passed. I’ll have to remember this next time things get crazy and I forget to stop and just enjoy.
