How To Accept Disappointment

It’s a Sunday, the one before Thanksgiving, and I find myself in my office. Sad. Teary. Alone. The boys are at the movies. My daughter is playing with a friend. And here I am. I want to be reading a book in a bubble bath, but the time feels like it should be spent on reflecting. On looking back at […]

Why Do We Give?

Does doing random (as in to a stranger) or personal (to someone you know) acts of kindness really accomplish anything? Could doing something as seemingly immaterial as paying $2.50 for a stranger’s cup of coffee possibly have a meaningful impact on their day? After paying it forward for now 50 consecutive days, I can tell you I honestly don’t know. […]

The Art of Listening…

I’ve been on this Pay It Forward kick for the last few weeks. I’ve paid for strangers coffee, sandwiches, paper towels, a stuffed animal, etc. It’s been interesting to see the responses.

Trust in the Timing

The Loving Almighty created us, knows us, and knows what is best for us, even if at times, it pisses us off. I’ve had to come to terms with that, even though I admit to brattishly, egotistically disagreeing with the Creator of All.

4 Forgotten Things to be Grateful For

Are you a Receiver of Abundance?

I just had a major self discovery. It’s quite life altering, and my guess is that if you ask yourself these two questions, you may share the same epiphany. The questions are: Do you believe you a receiver of abundance? Are you actually open to receiving at all? Here’s how the topic arose. This week, I went to see my Naturopath. She […]

The Benefits of Space Clearing

On my way to a meeting in Florida, I found myself with an empty home, too little time to start a new project, and too much time to sit idly by and wait for the cab to arrive. Just the day before I had watched Denise Linn free Hay House videos on how to clear/renew the energy in your surroundings. […]
