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…]

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…]

Choose the Stream

When we admit that the only constant [Read More…]

Rewards and Consequences

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…]

How Big Is Your Package?

Do you like to receive presents? I think most people would say “yes,” but do our actions support that answer? The books by Spencer Johnson about “The Present” show how living in the present is a present, one that we can give to ourselves if we choose. How would that be if you saw your [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…]
