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 […]

“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.” […]

 In my playbook, every day is Thanksgiving and I bet a lot of you reading this feel the same way. As we remain grateful this holiday, let’s take a moment to consider how fleeting life really is. . .memento mori. A Life That Matters  (A Non Religious Funeral Reading) Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours, days. All the things you collected, […]

I’m grateful for another chance. The opportunity to start from scratch. An opportunity to improve my attitude and behavior. This day is fresh, clean, unworn with emotional stains.  Nothing carried over from yesterday, just this rare and beautiful day, made up of many moments ahead, today is a day in my life, not my entire life. How will I use it?  What I choose to think about today will make me and much around me, […]

  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 […]

When you stop to think about where you will be in 10 years, what do you consider? Will you be doing the things you are doing right now?  Will you be richer? Thinner? In love? Famous? Tomorrow is Today Focusing on our future selves helps us to make new decisions about what we should be doing right now. With this vision and connection to our future self we can apply the action needed today to make the changes in order […]

I was on standby jury duty yesterday. My first time ever and while I realize it is a privilege to serve I just didn’t want to go. Too much to do.  I am sure you can appreciate that. Anyway, as I climbed the steps of the Supreme Court building (in much need of some TLC I should say), I made the deliberate decision that I would approach the day with a mindful curiosity, looking forward to […]

Thich Nhat Hanh writes, “When you say something like I love you. . .with your whole being, not just your mouth or your intellect, it can transform the world.” Because we are interconnected, when we awaken love in ourselves and express it, our love changes the world around us.  The hearts of those we touch are opened, and they in turn touch the hearts of others. Love is the basic nature, the goodness of all […]
