Ever Rationalize…

Irrational choices? When it comes to what we eat vs what we shouldn’t eat? It’s OK, we all do, just some more than others, but we can all have better luck if we don’t keep or buy the things we have a weak spot for. It’s not that you don’t trust ourselves, we do…we trust… Read more »

Conscience

Started to write a piece, back in the day, about conscience when my son Sam was 8 years old and he walked in. He asked what I was doing, and I told him…and he said “Oh Dad I know about that”! I scrapped mine…here’s his: Conscience is where you have this white thing with a… Read more »

Our time is valuable…

And so is the time of others…that’s why we need to people of our word. If we say “Yes, we mean “Yes”. If we can’t do something or make it somewhere, we say “No”. And if we aren’t sure, we don’t commit. These may be simple things, but it is the simple things that matter… Read more »

A change…

In nature…whether it be the tides, stars, weather, or pretty much everything else…things are constantly changing. The same goes for our lives. So why is it so hard for some of us to accept change? Life and history shows that we resist change because we, as people, like to give the minimum to get the… Read more »

We are Thankful…

For our part in paying the rent, it keeps a roof over our heads and keeps us dry. For our utility bills, it will help keep us warm with heating and water. For the low gasoline prices, it let’s us have more money for what we want, instead of what we need. For our tight… Read more »

No Regrets, Only Lessons…

By having regrets, we spend our present and future strolling down “Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda Street” which serves no purpose. Finding lessons from our… Read more »

When balancing out…

We need to remember to get “out” side. Sanitariums of the past had the recipe, when folks needed to balance “out” their lives. Set in beautiful settings, the “patients” we urged to slow down and take in what nature had to offer, like long walks, sitting on a park bench beneath majestic trees, surrounded by… Read more »

Life is a Marathon…

And not a Sprint. That’s why we can’t sprint for too long in life, otherwise we have to pull up and rest, while we watch the ones that take their time – pass us up. We are not saying we shouldn’t pick up the pace from time to time, we just need to pick the… Read more »

Everything that is not seen…

Doesn’t mean it doesn’t matter. It’s easy to understand that all things we can touch or can be seen, has a value. But what about the things we can’t see? Radio waves, sound waves, microwaves and light, for example, cannot be “touched” or “seen” …but can be quantified by the results they produce. The same… Read more »

The more we open our hearts…

And let others in…The more valuable we are to others and ourselves. Or we can protect our hearts, and keep others out, to play it safe, but it won’t allow us or other to reach their full potential. Talking to someone at not at them, while looking into their eyes, allows us to communicate from… Read more »
