• Embracing Your Life – ALL of It!

    We have all had those moments when we wish something different happened — small little annoyances, and major tragedies alike. The latter are profound and often beyond the pain that words can describe. The former–bad breaks, missed opportunities, people in our way and problems of all sorts–are numerous, often trivial, by comparison, but bother us […]

  • I Love Winter

    There are many reasons I love the season of winter. I love the crisp cold air, the incredibly clear blue skies, the sound of the wind howling through leafless trees, the smell of the fireplace and the cozy warmth of the hearth. But, above all else, I truly love the winter because of the spring […]

  • Examining our Emotions

    At our recent Men’s Group, one of the guys shared something he recently came across…a book that suggested that our emotions are essentially another sense; similar to smell, taste, sight, etc. This got me thinking, largely because I have spent so much time considering the effects of emotions, both personally and professionally, that they have […]

  • It might be Winter, but there’s still a Garden in your Heart

    Now in the midst of the dark of winter, recovering from the festive period past, deeply entrenched in our hibernation, one might assume all is dormant; but, that’s not necessarily so. As I gaze out at our garden from the warmth of my writing desk, I am aware that there is still life under that […]

  • Doing Less

    One of the hallmarks of people who are not feeling as well as they’d like is described as the feeling of being overwhelmed. For some, this means not having the energy to do the things they want; and to others, this manifests as a drain on the muscles of motivation that are required to stay […]

  • In Pursuit of Happiness

    I’m struck by how many times the word happiness comes up in conversation. Not only the ones that I share in a professional capacity, but in my life ongoing — indeed, in my own head, almost incessantly. I’m guessing that I’m not alone. So, when I saw that a nearly discarded piece of paper, left […]

  • How Will Your Story Go?

    “They” say that today is the first day of the rest of your life. And, I believe that is true. Yet, so many times, I find myself rehashing the past, indeed, reliving it, or at least, playing the past forward. One of the most important things we can do, of course, is to redirect our […]

  • Majesty Shrouded In Mystery

    I think I was 11 years old when I first saw a Redwood Tree. Walking within the eerie primordial mist of Muir Woods, just outside of San Francisco, I was struck by something more awesome than anything I had previously seen or experienced. The forest itself was breathtakingly beautiful, but there was an element of […]

  • The Solar Eclipse: When Darkness Obscures the Light

    Something interesting is going to happen in a few hours. Our sun, the most conspicuous force in the universe beyond the earth itself and apart from our own individual lives within the cosmic reality, is about to disappear — a relatively rare celestial event, at least as far as our single lifetime is concerned; a […]
