    To Numb or Not To Numb?

    If Nothing Changes….

    The Treadmill of Life

    Who’s First

    Who’s comes first? Where are YOU in line? Self care is so often an after thought, but without it, you place your health at risk. Putting yourself first means that it may be necessary to say no to someone else in order to say yes to yourself. We have all heard the instructions of an airline […]

    Ruts

    What is a “rut”? The dictionary defines a “rut” as “an established mode of procedure or course of life, usually dull and unpromising”. I am often a victim of ruts. Many of us fall into ruts and stay in them for a long time. Sometimes a ruts are not problems, they may even be helpful, […]

    Failure is a Valuable Teacher

    Failure is a reality. Failure is painful. Failure is a beautiful gift. We all fail at times and it can be very painful when it happens, but it’s better to fail while striving for something wonderful, challenging and adventurous than to not try because we are afraid we may not succeed. “Frequent failure” seems to be such […]
