Hurry Up and Wait

What do you do when you can’t do anything about an uncomfortable situation? At the moment I am sitting in an airport terminal without electricity and that includes air conditioning. In addition, the airline’s computer systems have gone down in three major cities, thereby causing a stoppage of all flights in the majority of their [Read More...]

Where Do You Draw the Line?

Do you like surprises? Your answer probably depends on what the surprise would be. I was recently someone’s “surprise” and she was not pleased at all! When the weather permits I read my spiritual materials and have my morning meditation outside. That was the case last week. I had just finished my meditation when I opened [Read More...]

Being For Something

Are you against rape, child abuse and racism? I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that you are. None of these three issues in society today, or the many more you might think of, are anything we want to see more of. Ernest Holmes taught us that our words have an impact on our present and [Read More...]

Choose the Stream

We have all seen televangelists or motivational speakers. Some of them seem to have the same smile on their face constantly. I find that kind of perennial “happy go lucky” or “everything is just wonderful all the time” attitude incredibly unbelievable. No one is happy all the time.

Snap Outta It!

Are you longing – even pining – for that one thing that will make everything perfect? Well stop it. It ain’t happening, sugar plum. Forgive me if this week’s blog is a little more “in your face” than normal. It’s meant to be offered in love, but it’s a tougher love than I’m normally known [Read More...]

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...]


Were you happy to see 2014 end or was it so terrific you just wanted to see it continue? Either way, it’s over and we have already begun 2015. What will the New Year hold for you? The answer to that question may surprise you depending on who you ask. That brings me to our [Read More...]

Using Methodical Madness to Our Advantage

Do you ever create a “To Do” list, or what I like to call my “Accomplishment List,” only to find it screaming at you later in the day? I am often asked how I keep all the different parts of my life organized. Granted, using Evernote on my mobile devices and desktop has become an [Read More...]
