The best gift you can give anyone is your full and true presence. Distractions are everywhere, and who has the time for anyone, really? I resolve from this moment forward to make more time for truer communication with those I love. This is what makes life more memorable. Generous Listening Inspired by Becoming Wise I’m thinking about how important it is to listen generously. How to compassionately communicate and hear another’s soul, even through the most […]

Being cautiously optimistic keeps me informed and realistic while remaining hopeful about the outcomes I wish to manifest. Being too realistic can dry up my soul, but being too optimistic can make me extremely delusional. If I see only the worst, it destroys my capacity to do something and if I only see the best, I may become blindsided by the bullshit I’m telling myself as things go horribly wrong. A case for remaining causiously optimistic throughout the day. 1. I […]

I think to some extent we all want to improve our lives. We all want things to be better. A better career, more money, less weight, more adventures, loving relationships. Right? I don’t know if I have met anyone who doesn’t want some improvement somewhere in their lives. So what’s the problem? I think what’s difficult is the change that is required to improve. That’s where we get stuck. It’s really hard to change you, but it’s […]

advice / love / relationships

Somewhere along stumbling to happiness and following our passion it’s easy to miss the true purpose of our existence. So wrapped up in achieving personal success, whatever we think that looks and feels like for us, we forget about the memorable mark our day-to-day behavior leaves on others.

We all play many roles in life, sister, brother, wife, husband, doctor, lawyer, manager, director. . .  Sometimes there are roles we want to play and other times their are roles we get to play. Taking care of a terminally ill loved one who may not be the best version of themselves due to pain, anguish and fear is not an easy role to play. My brother and his wife have taken care of my […]

  Continuously watch your state of mind for the quality of your thoughts are everything. It doesn’t get any easier, you just get better. You can’t just change your attitude, you need to also change your behavior. “Inconsistency of the mind does not suit a wise being.” – Seneca  Hurt people hurt. More often than not, it’s not about you at all. Youth is not an age, Youth = Freedom. It is emancipation from boredom and […]

Life is comprised of moments. Each moment lasting about three seconds. It can be a moment writing a proposal, a moment doing the dishes, walking the dog or a moment saying hello to an old friend. We experience approximately 1,200 three second moments in an hour and about 500 million moments in a lifetime. The quality of your life is not determined over years and decades but by what you do with each three second moment over […]

  Three things that are helping me grow right now . . . 1. Understanding Certainty vs Accuracy The Quest:  How to know the truth. Understanding that just because someone appears confident in what they are telling you, meaning they seem to be 100% certain about their story, doesn’t mean that the story is 100% accurate. Be careful and cautious about believing what you hear, read and watch. “Certainty” does not always equal accuracy. Stay cautiously skeptical. 2. […]
