Power and Poise: Similarities of Women and The Dragonfly

julia-yarbough--october-31-featured

Hardly a day goes by living here in South Florida that I am not amazed and in awe of the incredible creations put in front of us, thanks to Mother Nature. While I absolutely love the great outdoors, I’m not a big fan of creatures that creep and crawl, hop (like toads and frogs), or […]

Melting Pot

For those of us who call South Florida home, it is sometimes easy to take the concept of a cultural melting pot for granted. Here you’ll find almost every nationality, race, color and ethnicity you can imagine and quite frankly, some you probably don’t even realize exist! Without packing a suitcase or pulling out my […]

Positivity: How to create light and share

Sometimes people come into your life, and when you meet them, you have no clear idea or understanding WHY they have entered your sphere. That is the case with a dear friend of mine. A man who some of you may have heard of others — perhaps just becoming aware — but nonetheless, a man […]

Man in the Country Song

Stereotypes come in all forms. Even with music. I can’t tell you how often I get a blank stare when I tell folks I like country music. The other day, while listening to my local country music station 99.9, Kiss Country, it hit me… I would like a man like many of those characterized in […]

Frat Party with a Purpose

JuliaYarbough-225x300

What comes to mind when someone says “Frat Party?” If you’re like most people, you may conjure up images of rowdy latenight bashes in which frat boys and sorority girls are drinking, partying and ultimately trashing said party house. At least that is the image Hollywood would have us believe. Well, recently I attended a […]

Reading between the lines

Julia-Yarbough-Highway-to-a-husband

Am I the only person out there who will read the same novel several times? I’ll find a good read, enjoy the story, then several years later, read it – AGAIN. I recently carried out this somewhat odd pattern during a cross-country flight from Los Angeles to South Florida. I’ll set the scene to say […]

Sail Away – Just Go for It!

JuliaYarbough-225x300

Sometimes we have to be willing to step outside of our comfort zones to achieve our goals. Even when we are not quite sure what the end goal may actually be, if there is a voice within us nudging us in a new direction, we owe it to ourselves to listen. Trust the process. That’s […]

How to Create the Life You Want – Lessons from Highway to a Husband

JuliaYarbough-225x300

When I was asked to be a keynote speaker at the first annual Women’s International Holistic Conference, my first reaction was OF COURSE! My second reaction… UH OH, WHAT SHOULD I SPEAK ABOUT? Turns out, when I prepare a motivational presentation sharing my thoughts and personal life experiences, I speak from the heart and it […]

Romance, Fantasy and The Wild West Frontier

Julia Yarbough- July 11

There are many days when I am convinced there is something seriously “not quite right” with me. I freely admit, I’m an odd bird. But during a recent journey to Montana, I crossed paths with a woman who reminded me that sometimes, you have to break the norm. Step outside the box. Follow your gut. […]

Degrees of Separation?

Julia Yarbough

Congratulations are in order to the Miami Beach Chamber for presenting yet another fabulous Gala event. By a chance occurrence, I was seated next to a wonderful woman who used to live in Louisville, Kentucky and she quickly recognized and remembered me from my years (1990- 1993) as a news reporter in Louisville. Wow – […]

Water: Power to Change Lives

Julia Yarbough

Jambo! It’s more or less the equivalent of “Hey, what’s up? How are you?” It’s most often delivered with gusto and a warm, friendly smile. It was the greeting heard most often during 8 days spent experiencing a side of Nairobi, Kenya most tourists probably never see. How did I end up in Nairobi? The […]

Fly, Be Free, Live Life!

Julia Yarbough

When was the last time you stopped, and took a good look at our beautiful, amazing South Florida environment? I mean, REALLY sat still and simply watched the myriad of incredible creatures and plants we share our space with? Each season, there is something that catches my eye and I am once again reminded of […]

Don’t blink, you might miss the moment

Julia Yarbough

Have you ever started a morning with that heavy I-don’t-want-to-get-up kind of feeling and at some point you hear yourself saying, “I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and my bed is against a wall?” Don’t lie. You know at some point you have! That thought then sets a bumpy pace for […]
