“Life requires of man spiritual elasticity, so that he may temper his efforts to the chances that are offered.” ― Viktor E. Frankl “Change is essential for survival. All life forms must adapt to their fluctuating circumstances. All form of life result from the process of variation, mutation, competition, and inheritance. The universe is in a constant state of chaos. We each have chaos implanted into our bones. Nature wires all of us for change.” […]

This post ponders the idea of turning sour feelings. a.k.a. – a shitty state-of-mind – – into persevering resoluteness. I am thinking about the alchemy of emotions. Turning fear into fascination; frustration into fortitude, pain into power and anxiety into assurance. It’s about turning my life around. Drilling deep into my psyche to pull through life with courage and conviction. What I believe to be True When we do things thoughtfully we have a better chance at […]

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 […]

To be passionate about your dreams is one thing. To realize your dreams and create with purpose is completely another. Oh the danger of being drunk with passion and intoxicated with ideas.

Limitations are real and something we need to see clearly or we will never make progress. Self-denial about our limitations let us miss where we need to […]

True transformation, real personal change, can come from a spark of inspiration or devastating disruption. When you have been so turned on that your Hell Yes becomes your mantra for mind-blowing transformation or when you have dug yourself into such a deep hole that there is no way out but a mandatory intervention of something has to f😎king change. That moment that transforms your mind and ignites your soul can be fueled when you follow through with […]

Perhaps stumbling through and failing at life sometimes moves us to lose the deep trust in ourselves that we need to thrive. That loss of self-trust keeps us down, frozen and afraid to move forward.   Perhaps if we raise our “royal minds” and learn again to trust ourselves; no matter how many mistakes we make, as Ralph Waldo Emerson suggests in his essay “Spiritual Laws” we can begin to understand the importance of trusting oneself. “What a […]

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 […]
