What Are You Waiting For?

Many of us know when we need to make changes. Maybe it’s after that Doctor appointment. Maybe it’s after another fight…one more job loss…when the bills outlast the money. Changes rarely happen with we’re comfortable. In fact, changes almost never happen when things are going well and we’re ‘safe and secure’ in our own lives. […]

Getting Warmer!

Ahh, winter. A beautiful time of year–from the indoors! I love to watch the snow coming down out the back of my patio door…or my office. Beautiful! Seriously, there are very few feelings that are nicer than coming from the snow into a warm house…chili waiting…or maybe hot chocolate, wrapping yourself in a blanket and […]

I Wonder…

I wonder what will happen tomorrow…or the day after tomorrow. Will the ’causes’ that I agreed with have passed? Will those I disagreed with have failed?

Foolish or Wise? Which Will It Be?

There are no shortage of ‘opinions’ today. People seem to grow more ‘opinionated’ every day…and show it–with gusto!

One thing we can all agree on, however, is that ‘just because […]

No Rest for YOU!

One of my favorite ‘Seinfeld’ episodes from years ago was called ‘Soup Nazi’. There was a chef in New York who was very temperamental, and IF you wanted soup from him, you had to make sure to conduct yourself according to his ‘code’ while in his shop…otherwise you’d here the phrase, “No soup for YOU!”, […]

What Are YOU Here For?

Why do YOU exist? Most of us never think about this. We go through our days, our weeks, our months and our years doing pretty much the same thing. We get up, get ready for the day, grab a quick breakfast on the way to work or school, then come home, eat dinner, maybe watch […]
