    What’s For Breakfast? Lunch? Dinner?

    What’s on today’s menu? For me, curiosity and hope make for a healthy breakfast. I  snack on open mindedness, integrity, and generosity. I always try to carry a smile with me that I can share if a hungry visitor wanders into my day. At lunch I try to enjoy the local “daily special”. In the […]

Happiness is an inside job and it takes practice. […]

    Do Overs

Sharing the happiness of others will also make our spiritual candle burn […]

    Each of us has inside our heart a basic sense of goodness and kindness. If we listen to our hearts and act on what we hear, we will give to the world what is needed most, namely goodness and kindness. It is not complicated but it takes courage. It takes courage to listen to your own […]

    Character vs Reputation

    Character vs Reputation? Do you have the courage and strength to take the path less traveled. “Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” —-John Wooden Do you strive to be one of the “popular kids, […]
