The Blessing of Limitations

Recently I’ve written about having problems as part of experiencing our humanity. I’ve also brought up using disempowerment as a tool of empowering our lives. Both of these topics have resulted in numerous emails or comments on social media. Most have applauded my stand, but there are a couple of people (in the most severe [Read More…]

Light a Candle

How tired are you of the negativity, outright lies and blatant disregard for common sense we hear from the media? I know. Silly question. It’s like whenever there’s a disaster of any kind in the world:  We don’t want to watch, but we do. Sometimes we get so addicted to the details – even though [Read More…]

There is Power in Disempowerment

Do feel like you live from a place of power, meaning you feel empowered in your life, the decisions you make and the direction of your life? My friend and colleague, the well-known prosperity speaker and Unity minister, Rev. Edwene Gaines, introduces herself as a “woman of power.” That rubs some people the wrong way [Read More…]

I Love You – Now Change!

Have you noticed how we hold celebrities and spiritual leaders to a higher standard than others? We can be quick to criticize the conduct of people we hold in high esteem if what they do or say doesn’t fit the pictures we’ve created of them. For example, if celebrity couples separate or divorce the gossip [Read More…]

Are You Missing Out?

Do you like to “people watch?” Considering the amount of time I spend in airport terminals for my “day job” it’s become a major pastime for me. I was having breakfast in Miami International Airport this week with a view to the terminal concourse. Many of the passengers, airport employees, TSA agents and flight crews [Read More…]

What’s Your Vision?

Do you have a “vision?” One of the most important tools we can have for success is a personal vision statement. It succinctly articulates what we want our lives to accomplish, what we want to enjoy, how we wish to live, with whom we wish to live it, and what impact we intend to have [Read More…]

I Didn’t Mean It!

Ever say something and before it’s even out of your mouth you knew you’d regret it? You might have said right then or perhaps later, “I didn’t mean that!” Sorry. You sorta kinda probably did. Our comments might not indicate the type of person we want to be remembered as being for generations to come, [Read More…]

Why?

How often during the day do you ask or hear, “Why?” “There is no answer to a ‘why’ question.” I was once told. I believe the comment was in response to what a minister should say to comfort the surviving family of someone who had recently died. Actually, that’s probably not a good time to [Read More…]

We Are More Than We Know

Has anyone ever told you that you should live up to your potential? I’ve heard that, either directed toward me or in passing when one person is discussing someone else (usually their husband or child). My first thought is always, “How do you know the ultimate potential of someone else?” My second thought comes something [Read More…]

Can We Save the World?

I admit it. At times it’s just overwhelming to me. I don’t know about you, but sometimes the charity emails, social media postings about the great needs of people locally and around the global, and the unending mail delivered to my house requesting donations is just too much. I go to the grocery store and [Read More…]
