    How Will You Measure Yourself Today?

    How do you measure up? We are surrounded by measurements. The physical world is filled with measurements. Measurements allow us the ability to compare ourselves with others.  How old are you?  How much do you weigh? How much money is in your pocket?  Time is measured with seconds, minutes, hours, days, months and years. Measurements allow us to compare […]

    Happy Birthday!

    Happy Birthday to YOU! Oh, you say today is not your birthday. Really? Why not. Why celebrate a birthday only one day a year? Why not celebrate the anniversary of the day you were born every day? Today is gift, that’s why it’s called the present. Unwrap each day with wonder, awe and love. Accept […]

    Give Thanks

    Welcome to Today. Flowers in a garden will thrive if they are cared for in a “loving manner”. Yes, if they are left alone they may bloom and show color, but as time goes on they’ll lose their ability to do so if they’re not cared for. Weeds will eventually take over and the soil will […]

    Just Be

    Just Be Quiet…. I love spending time alone, but it’s usually not “quiet” because I’m walking, biking, hiking, driving or listening to music. At least once a day I try to force myself to spend time doing nothing, absolutely nothing, and that includes no music, no reading, no TV, no eating, no talking. Nothing.  I […]

    Is “Noise” Your Drug of Choice

    Our lives are typically filled with noise. There are the noises from the outside world that we cannot control, and then there are the noises we invite into our lives. Noises, even the ones from seemingly innocuous sources like the television and radio can become mind-numbing if not taken in mindful moderation. Noise allows us to […]

    Right or Happy?

    I’ve often asked myself, “would I rather be right, or happy?” What does that mean? Would I rather be happy or right, is a gentle way of suggesting that when I obsess about my own point of view or insist on having it my way, I have to step back and check my priorities. I […]

    The Fourth Element

    Three gifts and a search…. I believe we are born with three gifts. These gifts are our body, our mind and our spirit. Keeping a healthy body, mind and spirit is a life long evolving endeavor. I also believe we spend much of our life searching for the “Fourth Element”. I believe it is the […]

    Rest

    Good Morning, “What is without periods of rest will not endure.” —Ovid This quote resonates with me, maybe it rings true in your life. I need to be more mindful of rest. Naps are a wonderful experience. When we are tired, we need to stop and give ourselves time to rest. Sometimes we think we […]

    Ask Fear To Be Your Friend

    Do any of your fears intimidate you so strongly or even paralyze you to the point that you stop trying, stop experiencing or stop learning? When we face a fear we learn something about ourselves. As we learn, we change in some way, and to do so revises our perception of the world. This revised […]

    Chasing Happiness

    I used to chase after happiness. I always expected certain things, or certain people, or certain situations, to make me happy. I used to think, if only “this” or “that” would just happen, I’d be happy. And many times “this” or “that” would happen, and guess what, I would be happy for a while, but […]
