    Don’t Cross The Line

    Are you patient? Are you a procrastinator? There’s a fine line between patience and procrastination. Can you recognize the difference? The patience/procrastination line is usaully blurred by fear. Beware of crossing that line. It may be comforting to know that everyone gets scared, and it is perfectly OK. Sometimes just acknowledging our fears is enough to make […]

    Self Examination

    I’m a recovering perfectionist and an aspiring “do my best-ist”.  Life is good.  HappyNow… Are you your harshest critic? Sometimes in the midst of intense self-examination, it’s easy to forget what’s good about ourselves. So for one minute concentrate on your strengths. What do you do well? What positive changes have you made with respect […]

    A Happy Birthday

    I was born on May 29th, 21,185 days ago. Why do we celebrate a birthday only one day a year? What about the other 364 days? Why not celebrate life every day? We can choose to make every day, a day for celebration! When I was a little kid I waited for weeks for the big […]

    Memorial Day

    Take a short break from the Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Sales and Beach Parties to remember what Memorial Day is all about. Memorial Day is a holiday that has evolved dramatically over the years. Memorial Day observances began after the Civil War to honor the Union soldiers who gave their lives during the conflict. It was expanded […]

    Sleep

    Sleep is good. Regular periods of sleep are key to a healthy body and a clear mind. Sleep is the time  your body renews itself. When life gets busy, sleep is often the first activity that we sacrifice. Considered a luxury by many busy people, sleep is actually as vital to sustaining a balanced life […]

    Selfish Time vs Self Time

    I recently read this… “I love people.  I love my family and my children and my friends, but inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that’s where you renew your springs that never dry up.”—-Buck This quote made me think about the importance and difference between “Self Time” and “Selfish Time”. […]

    Believe Your Feelings

    Have faith in your gut feeling. Sometimes you can’t believe what you see, you simply have to believe what you feel. By accepting and following your feelings, you unify your emotional, mental and physical states. When you try to fight or deny them, you divorce yourself from the reality of your most basic being. Faith […]

    Fear

    Nobody enjoys being afraid. Fear is very uncomfortable. Since it is obviously unrealistic to expect to go through life without encountering fear, it’s best we have a plan when fear arises . When fear enters my life, I have learned  to imagine it as a “messenger” who is trying to tell me something.  I try […]

    Be Generous With Your Smiles

    “Give to the world all that you have, and the best will come back to you.” I love this quote. When I share something I love, something personal, with my family, my friends or even with my acquaintances, it gives both of us a special feeling. Generosity blesses the giver as much as the receiver. […]

    The Clean Air Act

    Take a deep breath.  How’s the air around you? How’s the energy aound you? Clean? Polluted? I believe our attitudes are an outward expression of our thoughts. Our attitudes often dictate how other people relate to us. What you say, how you say it and the words you use have an incredible impact on all […]
