All the power that we need is within us and will set us free from a life of regret. All unnecessary worry and anguish melts away when we become more self-aware of our strengths and our weaknesses and realize that our greatest moment is the one right in front of us. Our lives become more peaceful and our minds become stronger. Our lives become better when we become more self-aware. “He who knows that power is […]

Expose Yourself

A dear friend sent me this quote above via text message today. It came just in time and felt so very right. I’ve also been thinking a tremendous amount about the importance exposing ourselves. Exposing ourselves to new music, food, friendships, work, skills – in order to grow. And I have also been thinking about exposing our vulnerabilities. To be vulnerable and then share that vulnerability—which comes in many forms (awkwardness, shyness, joy, flirtation, upset, impatience)—with […]

  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. […]

I have come upon a shift in thinking.  It’s the difference between living a life that is unprepared, off-the-cuff and according to the demands and cries of others TO a more deeply connected, intentional and thoughtful life. A life designed to inspire and ignite others. It’s a conscious decision to move away from my “ad-libbed” life, towards an artful, improvised life with deliberate purpose and meaning. “My life is not an apology, but a life. It is for itself and not for a […]

I’m not sure you find your purpose, I think you live your purpose.  If my purpose is to become the best version of me, then what would the best version of me do today? The unbeatable version of me? The most self-respecting version? The most loving version of me? What action can I take today to be that person right now?  Criticize less and compliment more. Let others do things their own way. Talk only when necessary. […]

“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.” Rainer Maria Rilke. Read: Letters to a Young Poet Inspired by Tara Brach’s Dharma Retreat Talk “Letting Go of Judgement” 9/05/2015 “Letting go of “adversive” judgement does not mean letting go of wise discrimination,” Tara Brach.

I am adding yet another new daily habit of 30 minutes of focus and deep concentration by journaling precisely what I want to create in life with the honest intention of being in service to everyone I meet.  I imagine and behold a (super) better version of myself, eliminating any negative thoughts including envy, hatred, judgement, selfishness or cynicism. No matter what, I will carve out this time to make sure this becomes a ritual in my […]

If you suffer from even just an occasional attack of anxiety, worry or ruminating thoughts, this post has some very useful tips on how to stop the spin cycle of subcortical looping, ie. excessive, repeating thoughts of worry and fear. These are therapies and tips that I have been researching and trying on myself. They are not to replace professional medical guidance. First, a few book quotes from  Awakening Joy: 10 Steps to Happiness Worrying as […]
