Rite of Passage

Everyday you and I transition to something, someone or someplace.  These transitions are called Rites of Passage. Many will be planned like a wedding, many unplanned like the death of a loved.   In either case, planned or unplanned, transitions happen.  And, how you and I choose to label them (this is good this is […]

Two Voices

You and I have two internal voices – one whispers you can, the other shouts you can’t.  Which one we listen to is our choice. The bumble-bee wanted to fly and, in my  imagination I can hear its internal conversation …..I think I can, but the odds say I can’t… that may be, but something […]

Ready to decide?

There comes a time in every life when a person needs to decide what type of life they want to experience before proceeding.

They beckon for our attention

There are many voices in our head.  Some louder than others, some recognizable, some are not; some make us feel good, some do not.  And, the one thing they have in common is they are constantly beckoning for our attention.    Listen carefully because the voice we give our attention to will be the voice […]

What are we identifying with?

Part of our identity is tied to our choices and when we make I’m afraid choices, we limit how far we can grow and go Ronald Reagan did not identify with I’m too old. And, at age 69 ran and won the Presidency of the US.     Yuichiro Miura of Japan did not identify with […]
