Life – It Doesn’t Have To Be A Struggle

We seem to always struggle. We struggle with bosses who don’t respect us or our work. We struggle with trying to get more things done each day than are humanly possible. We struggle trying to get our kids to do their homework, get into bed, get into the car and stop bothering their siblings. Struggle, … Continue reading

Thank You, Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou, the amazing American author and poet, was one of these great people. Though many of us are saddened by her passing, we continue to find the joy … Continue reading

Tell Me About You

This past week I have been interviewing job candidates for my clients; they are looking to hire several people into new roles. I love to watch how people present themselves – in what they send in, on the phone and face-to-face. This is worthy of some comments, so here I go. It is important for us to … Continue reading

Choose a Different Thought

You see someone that others have told you is a jerk so you share a negative comment about the person with your friends. Someone cuts you off on the highway – you think the person is inconsiderate so you speed ahead and cut the person off. Someone makes fun of something about you. You make … Continue reading

The Ripple

We had a great rain this week. The puddles were amazing – deep pools that created mini lakes in places where moments before, no water had been. As the wind blew the last of the storm through and the clouds and rain moved past, drops of water on the trees fell into the puddles. Each … Continue reading

Take Your Blinders Off

We start off as amazing, creative and original beings who, over time, learn how to think, act and live like everyone else. I call it building the blinders. And with blinders, all we see is what is in front of us – the things that looks like what everyone else does. All we see is the same … Continue reading

When we talk about greatness, many people think this means that things must be perfect – things must work out as … Continue reading

You Can’t Train Against Nature

I love watching Cesar Milan, The Dog Whisperer. And though he is sharing his thoughts and experience with dogs, much of what he says relates to humans too, including this one – you can’t train against nature. Some dogs are born to run, others to sit in our laps. Confine the herding or hunting dogs … Continue reading

I Love You Because…

I was listening to the radio this morning over breakfast and heard the barrage of ads looking to sell the conventional Valentine’s Day gifts – flowers, candy, cards and jewelry. I love that we celebrate love. What it made me think about was how could celebrate love without buying gifts? Because love is about action, what if we were … Continue reading
