“The Glitter and the Glue”

I came upon a delightful book in my travels this week. The author is Kelly Corrigan (http://kellycorrigan.com) and her new work is entitled, Glitter and Glue. The book is based on a comment her mother once made. It seems in their family her father was the glitter and her mother was the glue. I knew [Read More...]

Being Successful Isn’t Hard

It’s funny how “stuff” from growing up can still be echoing in our minds far into adulthood. I was taught by my father that we’d never have enough money and that there would always be more bills than money. Sometimes our family couldn’t get ends to meet, but at least if the ends waved at [Read More...]

Go for the Gold

Make no mistake about it; the Sochi Olympics had millions of people around the world glued to the big screen for much of February.   The experience was so intense for some people, that in Canada, very few even slept on Sunday as they opted to get up as early as 4 a.m. (or just [Read More...]

Open-Minded or Wishful Thinking?

“There is a difference between having an open mind and believing something because we want it to be true.” When I heard that on NPR I had to pull over to write it down. It is imperative that we keep an open mind when we live a life that is based on thinking positively. Circumstances [Read More...]

The Power of Resistance

One of the most subtle ways that we get in the way of ourselves is to resist the change that we want to see.   It’s easy to recall Ernest Holmes’ mantra “change your thinking, change your life” when we’re in the midst of moving ourselves forward into a new level of consciousness, but the [Read More...]

Will You Be My Valentine?

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Thanks to mass marketing wanting us to believe everyone should be in a fairy tale relationship, February 14 can mean expectations from those in relationships and gloom for singles. Someone told me that Valentine’s Day doesn’t matter because “it is just a made-up holiday” and, therefore, we really [Read More...]

Love is a Verb

When I was a little boy my mother used to sit down with me a few days before Valentine’s Day and help me make up my list of classmates. She told me it was very important that I not leave anyone out, because everyone was deserving of love and there was no limit on it. [Read More...]

The season is meant to highlight the value and importance of living [Read More...]

Are You Content or Complacent?

There are an unlimited number of advertisers vying for our attention. Many of these suggest that if we look like, smell like or sound like the digitally-enhanced and airbrushed models in the ads our lives will be complete. It’s a marketing ploy that says, “If you have this (whatever this is), you’ll be happy,” even [Read More...]

Mind and Addiction

This past week, actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his home, reportedly with a needle in his arm and evidence indicating he had suffered a heroin overdose. By the time this blog is posted, many details and more will probably be confirmed, but it was a sad ending for a man who, by [Read More...]
