What’s stopping us?

What can we do when our lives resemble a river full of unexpected logs blocking our go?     We can choose one or all of the following: climb over them go around them build on them But, the following choices are not options:  turn around  stop

What are we creating?

We are always creating. And, to create a harmonious sound from music, a musician must learn to play along with other musicians. And, to create a world filled with wonder, we must learn to listen, understand and love one another. Look around and see, listen and hear what you have created up to now.   Then, […]

Consequences

A definition of the word consequence is a result or effect of something that occurred earlier. A good reminder – with every decision, choice, we make there is an outcome – a consequence.  No judgment, no criticism, just an outcome.    Some consequences will be beneficial and some will not. So the next time we are […]

The Domino Effect

Don’t like this or that?  Stuck in reaction?  Change it, you can do it by simply changing the relationship we perceive or have attached to this or that. When our perceptions change the representation of this and that in our minds change.  When the representation changes, our reactions change. It’s a domino effect and works […]

Are you in the game?

You and I were born to win.  However, many do not believe this statement and show up to play the game of life half-hearted and even defeated.

I trust on me moment…..

No matter how big or small, young or old, life will present us with a trust on me  moment. A trust on me moment comes when uncertainty and doubt knocks on our door or when we find ourselves in new situations, approaching the unknown, and the only guidance we hear bubbles up from within. A trust on […]

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 […]
