Ask Mikey: Farewell Ahwatukee, I will miss you
Posted: December 23, 2015

It is with a heavy heart that the time has come for my Ask Mikey column in the Ahwatukee Foothills News to come to an end. It has been a very interesting and blessed journey, as I have appreciated getting to know the community more and more throughout the years.

Ask Mikey: Don’t change who your kids are meant to be
Updated: December 23, 2015 - 1:53 pm

Do you remember when you were just a kid? When you didn’t have to worry about paying bills, working long hours, or providing for your family? When your job was just to go to school, get good grades, and do your chores? As long as we did that, our other only job as a kid was to play and to have as much fun as we possibly could.

Ask Mikey: If it’s not your dream then why are you doing it?
Updated: December 23, 2015 - 1:53 pm

When we were young we had the world ahead of us. We were filled with ambitions, dreams, goals, and future checkpoints we knew we wanted to hit — “In 10 years I see myself owning my first home, five years after that a family, 10 years after that my own business, 20 years after that retirement.”

Ask Mikey: Should Ziosks be at restaurant tables, or is that taking it too far?
Updated: December 23, 2015 - 1:53 pm

The other night my husband and I decided to eat out at one of our favorite restaurants. We both worked a hard day surrounded by technology, and we looked forward to getting a break from it. When we sat down at our restaurant we were quite disappointed as supposedly now our favorite restaurant has installed those touch-screen Ziosks to all of the tables.

Ask Mikey: Turn your tragedy into something positive
Updated: December 23, 2015 - 1:53 pm

Have you ever stopped to wonder, why did this happen to me? Why am I constantly struggling? Why am I always broke? How come other people have less tragic events that happened to them in their life than I have had happen in mine?

Ask Mikey: Manipulating, guilt-tripping others is not showing that we love them
Updated: November 18, 2015 - 10:54 am

Ask yourself something. When you ask someone if they want to go see a movie with you or go out to eat with you, and they say “no” because they have other plans they agreed to prior to your offer, is your response, “Sure no problem, I understand.

Ask Mikey: We need to look harder for the positive things in life
Updated: November 04, 2015 - 7:35 am

Have you ever had one of those days where you let everything that may be going wrong in your life get the best of you and cause you to block out everything that may be going right in your life?

Ask Mikey: Attention all 30-something-year-olds
Updated: November 04, 2015 - 7:35 am

With the economic recession that hit us about seven or eight years ago, a lot of things have changed. College graduates are not able to just get a job as easy as it used to be right after graduation, young adults are living at their parent’s home longer, and couples are having children in their 30s and 40s now instead of their 20s and 30s.

Ask Mikey: Chivalry is not dead
Updated: November 04, 2015 - 7:35 am

Dear Mikey,

I would like to talk about something that I’ve noticed in our community. Women are constantly stating how chivalry is supposedly dead and they are always complaining about how there is a lack of good men out there that are hard to find.

Ask Mikey: Finding the light in the darkness of the world
Updated: November 04, 2015 - 7:35 am

Dear Mikey,

I have been struggling a lot lately with the negativity of the world around me. The people in my life are currently going through their own struggles and so I think that is why they are spilling their negative energy on me. Yet, the events going on around the world right now aren’t helping much either.

Ask Mikey: Bullying is not just a child issue
Updated: November 04, 2015 - 7:35 am

For quite some time now my CEO, in my opinion, has been harassing me and bullying me in the workplace. He constantly points out my flaws in front of my other co-workers and degrades me and never has anything nice to say.

Ask Mikey: Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you won’t succeed in life
Updated: November 04, 2015 - 7:35 am

Dear Mikey,

I grew up in a very poor and low income area when I was a child. My dad passed away when I was only 5 and my mother did everything to try and raise my brother, sister, and I the best way she possibly could.

Ask Mikey: Don’t wait too long to start living your life
Updated: November 04, 2015 - 7:35 am

Dear Mikey,

I just turned 35 years old yesterday and I swear I had an epiphany. I have just spent the last 35 years chasing dreams, working hard to move up in the world, working overtime to save money to buy a house, and have been chasing women and have just been solely focused on that to where I realize now, that I have never actually started living my life.
