Setting goals without creating limits

  Posted On:  June 30, 2014

What was the last goal you set for yourself?  Did you make it?  How did you feel afterwards?  Was your success of that goal the motivation for your next one? Goals are critical in assisting us with determining a direction that we want to go and ultimately sustain a level of satisfaction and contentment within

Need space?

  Posted On:  June 10, 2014

Regardless of annual income, or lack thereof, the only real estate that we all have guaranteed to us is our own personal space.  I’m not talking the walls that house and shelter you, I’m talking about the intangible energies that embody who we are and how we conduct ourselves.  We are constantly maintaining, creating, and

A powerful reminder

  Posted On:  May 6, 2014

This week I have been reminded that when people act out in prejudice, discriminatory, and outright ignorant ways…they are being driven by fear.  It may be fear of themselves, fear of uncertainty, or such a deep fear they don’t even realize it exists within them.  My response will either give fear more power and promote

If someone asks you how your week is going, what are you most likely going to focus on?  Too often we get caught up in the things that we didn’t do well, the tasks we didn’t complete, or simply the daunting things piling up in front of us.  And sometimes, all of those things start

I love the holidays.  I love anything that brings people together and nurtures connection with each other.  Unfortunately, a by-product of all this connection is the much dreaded gift exchanges and holiday purchases that sometimes overshadow the spirit of the season. This post is created in the spirit of including some presence in the presents of the season.  🙂

Who is ready for the holidays?!  If you just responded with an exasperated sigh or cringed as you read those words, this may be a good post for you. This time is mentally and physically exhausting all by itself, so why not consider doing a quick mental health check-up before you find yourself wanting to call

Apples and Oranges

“Comparison is the thief of joy”—Theodore Roosevelt. You know the saying “that’s like comparing apples to oranges”?  When I was younger, it would always baffle me because I couldn’t understand why you would need to compare such similar objects.  But as a culture, that’s what we like to do…compare identical things and circumstances and then participate

It’s okay not to be okay

  Posted On:  August 30, 2013

I write often about ideas and strategies that increase a sense of well-being.  They originate from a place within my soul that knows peace even if I am not always present in that space.  And typically the ideas and strategies I talk about offer a backdrop of inspiration and uplifting energy.  The reality is that some
