    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 […]

    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. Fear can cause us to leap into action or paralyze us. Fear has been with me since childhood, like the fear of getting in trouble […]

    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 […]

    Control vs Adventure

    “A controller doesn’t trust his/her ability to live through the pain and chaos of life. There is no life without pain. There is no life without submitting to chaos.”……Rita Brown What a great quote. It is very hard for most of us to see how controlling we are. If you’re like me, sometimes I feel […]

    The Library…..

    The Library I remember going to the library as a little kid thinking, “Wow, look at all the books, so many stories, so much information stored in this room. In the age of computers, I don’t go to the Library very often anymore. These days, it’s my mind that is a library and I try […]

    “Stinkin Thinkin”

    Stinking Thinking can be our greatest of spiritual burdens. The key to dealing with negative thinking is to stop the thoughts before they build into a dominating sense of pessimism and helplessness. Don’t believe everything you think. “Stinking Thinking” feeds on negative attitudes and resistance to spiritual growth. Watch for signs of negative thinking like self-pity, […]

    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 […]
