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

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.

FOURTH ANNIVERSARY OF MY ACCIDENT

This Thanksgiving weekend marked the 4th anniversary of my near-death accident when an out-of-control SUV with a sleeping driver barreled into my bicycle. I was an experienced cyclist taking all possible precautions — I was wearing a helmet and bright clothing, obeying traffic laws, and riding on the right shoulder of a sparsely travelled country road. It was 1:06 pm on a Saturday afternoon and everything changed in a split second. I think about that moment in time every day.… Read More

IT’S THE MOST PECULIAR TIME OF THE YEAR

  Here we are smack dab in the middle of that Judea – Christian Happy Hour called The Holidays.  Christmas, Hanukkah, whatever you may or may not celebrate, most of the people around you are either successfully or anemically attempting to bury themselves in good cheer, consumption of goods and group revelry. The more pious look inwards to what the holiday is truly supposed to mean, but for the most part it’s tinsel, twinkly lights, excessive eating and drinking and… Read More

Appreciation

WITH A SONG IN MY HEART

  It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog. I’m sorry to have been missing in action. An extra full plate is partially responsible. Endless blessings. But, I experienced something a few days ago that lit a fire and made me want to share it with you. I’m sometimes obsessed with time passing. I often retrace my life back to events that have led to especially meaningful moments or milestones. I wrote an earlier blog about it. I concluded… Read More
