    Pebbles in Your Shoes

    Question: What prevents you from reaching the top of a mountain? Answer: “It’s not your tired legs but the pebble in your shoe that keeps you from climbing”. More often than not it’s how we handle the “little things” that has the greatest impact on the quality of our lives. It’s less about the crises […]

    Change Is The Only Constant

    Perhaps the greatest constant in our lives is change. We change every day. We change as we learn new things. We change as we are exposed to new thoughts and ideas. Too often I find myself holding on to my old beliefs, beliefs that contradict what I am learning today. Why is it so hard […]
