MAYBE, AND THAT IS FINAL

Acceptance, Change

MAYBE, AND THAT IS FINAL

To be or not to be. Sometimes the choice is ours. Hamlet knew he could “his quietus make with a bare bodkin.”  That would be a knife in Elizabethan times. A little extreme. If I were going to “end the heartache and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to” I sure as hell wouldn’t stab myself. No, I’m not suicidal. I’m not even depressed. Forgive the maudlin beginning but Hamlet’s soliloquy is probably the most brilliant thing ever written about throwing… Read More

APPRECIATING THE PRESENT

APPRECIATING THE PRESENT

  Here’s the thing: you can’t change the past and you can’t predict the future. We know these things on a fundamental level yet we do little things every day to suggest otherwise. I get stuck on the little things, I complain about the little things. It’s nearly constant, and it’s a perpetual New Year’s resolution of mine to knock it off. But once in a while I’ll happen upon a picture from 3 years ago and get some forced… Read More

13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do by Amy Morin LCSW

This blog was sent to me today and  I felt it was worth sharing here.  I did not actually ask the author if I could post it, but it’s all over the web, so I hope she doesn’t mind.    It comes from a book called 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do by Amy Morin. The book came out in 2014 and has been translated into over 23 languages. I say buy it.     Mentally strong people have healthy habits. They… Read More

GAME OVER

Unprecedented numbers of white-collar workers are facing the prospect of losing their jobs; this has happened to blue-collar workers over many years and, somewhat patronisingly, been deemed inevitable/acceptable and a necessary trait of industry modernising via automation, etc. There has been little sympathy for such job losses. With white-collar workers the reaction has been somewhat different, largely because this impacts a whole different demographic and is part of the narrative chronicling the demise of the middle-class, its impact on consumerism… Read More

THE YEAR WE LEAVE BEHIND

Book Tour, Moving Forward

THE YEAR WE LEAVE BEHIND

That time of year,  we nudge one year out the door and invite another one in.  While I like to look ahead and set up a plan of action for what I want to accomplish in the new year, I also like to look back and see how I did in the year that is making its exit. The year of 2015 was about furthering the message of Gratitude and Trust.  When the book came out I told myself and Paul,… Read More

Time

Time is the most valuable coin in your life. You and you alone will determine how that coin will be spent. Be careful that you do not let other people spend it for you.
