Dr. METate logoMedi-Tate & Mingle is not just a convenient play on my name. It is my personal oxymoronmy yin-yangmy Libra scalesthe balancing act that exists within me. MEDI-TATE describes the side of me that is introspective, cerebral, intuitive, spiritually grounded, and individualized. While the MINGLE is my social butterfly, people-person, interactive, talkative side. Bringing them together allows me to reach out to you.

Resolution is defined as a firm decision to do or not do something.  Synonymous with other words like intention, commitment, plan, and promise, there is a marked emphasis on action.  As the year has turned, the age old discussion of New Year’s Resolutions is standard.  The winter holiday season has come to a close and […]

Mutual Suspicion

Without a doubt, we are in the “selfie” era.  In a given 24 hour period (or even a 1 hour period), it’s nearly impossible to scroll through any brand of social media without seeing a selfie.  I suspect that you can walk just about anywhere and see people stopping to take selfies in front of […]

Am I A Hater?

0

Hater.  It is arguably one of the most over-utilized terms in pop-culture conversation in recent years. Whether it’s during a heated debate about sports, fashion, or various pop-culture icons, the term is bound to surface when someone brings up a subject of controversy.   Urbandictionary.com defines a “Hater” as a person that simply cannot be happy for […]
