What cannot be said will be wept. Sappho It all has to be said. It has to be tried, attempted, overturned, and examined. Life is meant to be lived. It is meant to be explored, with a bit of tension of uncertainty. It was not designed for us to be mere spectators. What...
I don’t wanna

I don’t wanna

You don’t want to and you wouldn’t be the first to say it, too think it, and not do it. I guess there is no shame in that, because it’s common. Very common. So common that there is great comfort in numbers. Millions of people don’t feel like doing things and so...
slowing down

slowing down

In a world that revs you up and obsesses over better and faster, it has never been more important to slow down. There has never been a more important time to just slow down, forget about better and go slower. Much slower. We have to learn to purposefully find a slower...
I’m busy and have no time

I’m busy and have no time

You might hear someone say this today or perhaps it will be you that utters these unfortunate words. I’m busy and I have no time. Busy and no time. Emily Dickinson beautifully and poignantly exposed the folly of this statements in her poem The Chariot. She wrote,...
quieting those voices in our head

quieting those voices in our head

There are always voices in our head and there will always be voices in our head. It is who we are, it is who we are meant to be. But the important thing to remember is that we can influence those voices in our head, and furthermore if we can’t influence them, we can...

change

Rolling with change is tough to do for most people, but if you do, you can take solace in the fact that you’re living a fulfilling life. How you cope or embrace change says a lot about who you are. If you stiffen, brace yourself, and have to get dragged in a new...

Those who are easily shocked should be shocked more often. Mae West   The world is full of sensitive people. Full of well meaning people, and sometimes not so well meaning, who try to model the right way to live, but very often they are surprised and shocked by what...

Those who control the present, control the past and those who control the past control the future. George Orwell   You must take control of your present reality. Your life, your dreams, and in fact the well being and happiness of those that are connected to you depend...
a rough day at the office

a rough day at the office

I don’t think it would serve anyone any good if I only wrote about the ups but hid or avoided writing about the downs. Yesterday was a down, one of those drafting days that strings itself into our lives once in a while, or often. I will spare you most of the details...
done over easy

done over easy

Done over easy. That’s how I like my dreams early in the morning, with a side of home fries, and a hot coffee; two creams, no sugar. Done. One syllable. One single point of focus. Completion and a conclusion. When it comes to work we are funny people. If we are...

the value of making connections

The Value of Making Connections   Learning to communicate effectively is not something you can do or master in one day, but rather, it’s something you have to challenge yourself with everyday in order to live with purpose. Effective communication is not an option and...
spotting a made up crisis

spotting a made up crisis

Not every crisis is real and it’s important to know the difference. Without knowing the difference between a real crisis and a fake crisis, you’ll end up doing a lot of work, a lot of hurting, all the while misdirecting you time for nothing. A crisis needs to stand...
crisis

crisis

Time is at a premium these days but it has always been, we just never noticed and it is never going to change. The more you love and engage yourself in a meaningful life, and as the things you love to do multiply, they will steal your time as they push and pull you,...

Poor is the man whose pleasures depend on the permission of another. Madonna   You bore a heavy cost when you were educated in a public education system. It’s sad really, because well meaning people with well meaning hearts convinced and trained you to comply and be...

Don’t withdraw, don’t surrender, don’t give up. Roméo Dallaire   Never withdraw and never surrender to negative thoughts and to unwelcome criticism. Never surrender to your mistakes and heap fulls of failure, or to anything else that forcibly intends to suffocate your...
whatever it takes

whatever it takes

Create a life of doing whatever it takes. Not blindly and unethically of course, but a life that will push you to become someone you might not think you can become. Do whatever it takes, so that you are always growing. Do whatever it takes, so that you leave this life...
a thousand different ways

a thousand different ways

We often get stuck looking for the way to do something and we probably picked up that habit in school. We learned that two plus two is four, that its not five or six or seven. We learned what the proper capital of a country and that water boils at one hundred degrees...
don’t reject yourself

don’t reject yourself

Don’t reject yourself. There are plenty of people that are willing to do that for you. You no longer have to reject yourself. It’s not your job description any longer. You can let go of the burden and responsibility. Consider yourself set free. Free to no longer...

she who hesitates

She who hesitates is lost, or at least really, really inconvenienced. Call it what you will, be it hesitation, fear, laziness, insecurity or procrastination, whatever identity you choose to give it, but remember that he who hesitates is most truly lost. She is missing...
