  Posted On:  July 20, 2019

Have you ever had one of those days when you just feel stuck?  Maybe you are feeling a slight impulse for something different or maybe it’s a bigger impulse to change things up.  If you have noticed that your life isn’t matching up with what you want or feel that it should be, it’s time

Stop pursuing happiness and seize it right now

  Posted On:  December 9, 2016

It seems like we are infatuated with the idea of pursing happiness instead of the actual experience of it. We think about how happy we will be when it’s Friday, how much we are looking forward to our vacation, or how much better things will be when we get XYZ complete.  Little do we realize that

Be what you want

It is impossible to create immunity from the harmful, painful, and at times devastating statements and opinions at times, but I think there is a better way to insulate ourselves and promote hope than by making sweeping statements of separation or reacting with anger and fear.  Be honest, when was the last time that you

Lose interest in negativity

  Posted On:  November 9, 2014

I am amazed how much energy I have committed to negative people and their experiences.  I used to think that I toxic people were drawn to me for some reason. I would find myself completely worn out and thinking “Why is everyone around me so unhappy?”  And after a while, my frustration would get to

A powerful reminder

  Posted On:  May 6, 2014

This week I have been reminded that when people act out in prejudice, discriminatory, and outright ignorant ways…they are being driven by fear.  It may be fear of themselves, fear of uncertainty, or such a deep fear they don’t even realize it exists within them.  My response will either give fear more power and promote

Strength training for everyone.

If someone asks you how your week is going, what are you most likely going to focus on?  Too often we get caught up in the things that we didn’t do well, the tasks we didn’t complete, or simply the daunting things piling up in front of us.  And sometimes, all of those things start

Unplug and open up

  Posted On:  March 25, 2014

Last week I arrived to a lunch meeting about 20 minutes early and decided to keep my phone in my jacket pocket instead of keeping myself preoccupied with the latest status updates on all of the social media sites.  As I sat there and took in my surroundings, it was astonishing the stories that I

Presence for Presents

  Posted On:  November 29, 2013

I love the holidays.  I love anything that brings people together and nurtures connection with each other.  Unfortunately, a by-product of all this connection is the much dreaded gift exchanges and holiday purchases that sometimes overshadow the spirit of the season. This post is created in the spirit of including some presence in the presents of the season.  🙂
