    T.E.A.M.

    Life is filled with teams. No matter how strong, smart, talented or motivated we are, our most meaningful achievements in life have come with the help of others.

    Paralyzed by fear

    “Fear can drain us of life’s energy and creativity. Fear often paralyzes the human spirit.” Fear is often a driving force behind many of our actions or our in actions.

    Courage…One Day At A Time.

    I do not have to have courage for a lifetime, I just need courage for this moment, just for NOW. I am helped by the philosophy that encourages me to live one day at a time, one hour at a time, one moment at a time. It is too daunting to try to live my […]

    Stop and Be Real

    Are you running from the truth? When we accept the flow of life as it’s presented to us, we are acknowledging reality. We all have on occasion, run from the truth. When we were in a situation that frightened us or made us anxious we would run away or even imitate an ostrich and stick our […]

    Solitude vs Loneliness

    “Being solitary is being alone well; being alone luxuriously immersed in doings of your own choice, aware of the fullness of your own presence rather than the absence of others.”—–Alice Koller I love solitude.

    I’m Not Sorry

    “I’m sorry”. I’ve said it many times, most of us have said it at some point and some of us say it at the very first moment of confrontation. But what does saying “I’m sorry” really mean if we aren’t sorry. What do we do if we’re really not sorry. What if someone feels we owe them […]

    Messages

    Do you believe that exposure to negative or positive messages have impact on your thinking? Why do large corporations invest millions of dollars for one or two, 30 second commercials during the Super Bowl? They believe they can influence your thinking and subsequently your actions in less than one minute. Why then do some people […]

    Nadi Shodhana and HappyNow…

    How do you feel? Right now, how do you feel? Tired? Excited? Happy? Worried? It’s all about energy. When we are in a restless energetic state, we become manic, agitated and stressed. When we are in a lethargic energetic state, we become sluggish, apathetic and depressed. Mindful breathing is an effective method to balance our […]
