Giving Away Our Power

Is your life affected by the actions of others? More specifically, are you allowing someone else to stop you from having the life you want? Madisyn Taylor recently wrote, Often, when we’re unhappy, we fall into the habit of thinking that, if only one or two particular things in our life would change, everything would [Read More…]

Be Yourself

Have you been told to just “be yourself?” What does that even mean? And, does the person know what they’re in for? We teach our children to express themselves, yet our public school system is set up all too often in a one-size-fits-all environment. I remember my mother looking for pantyhose one time and seeing [Read More…]

A Dance With Life

A Dance With Life Are so excited to get to work that you almost can’t stand it? Sadly, many people will say “No.” Studies have shown the majority of workers don’t like their jobs .Work is drudgery, paying our dues, a necessity evil. Geez…if THAT’S the way we think about it no wonder people don’t [Read More…]

Celebrating Our Failures

There is a danger about living our lives in a positive way. What’s that, you ask? We may feel ashamed when things don’t turn out the way we thought they would. We might feel that if our desires are sincere then the outcome should be assured. To avoid the pain we may even refuse to [Read More…]

Why Did This Happen?

I originally wrote parts of this week’s blog shortly after Malaysian Airlines flight 370 went missing. A recent event in my own life has had me once again asking the same question – over and over and over again:  Why did this happen? Something very personal in my extended family happened last week. My niece, [Read More…]

How Vulnerable Are You?

Seeing people with their noses buried in their devices is something I’m becoming more aware of in the past year. When my niece visited last year we saw more of her forehead than her eyes. I knew she was in bed from the radiant glow of her device snuggled in beside her. I now work [Read More…]

The Illusion of Companionship

Are you reading this on your mobile device? Over half of my readers access my blogs and messages via a smart phone or tablet. But does yours feel like it’s surgically attached to you? I sometimes feel like mine is, which is why I’ve been taking consistent and proactive steps to disconnect from the technology [Read More…]

Stop Tolerating Your Life!

In my last blog I wrote about accepting people as they want to be. In other words, stop trying to teach the pig to sing – it doesn’t work and it annoys the pig. Please don’t get self-righteous and tell me I’m calling people pigs, although that wouldn’t be an insult anyway. Pigs are perhaps [Read More…]

Changing Others

“Just who do you think you are to tell God what to do?!?” That’s the response I got from a spiritual counselor years ago when I was detailing to her all the ways my lover at the time needed to change to have the life he deserved. “What makes you think what he’s going through [Read More…]
