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

FOURTH ANNIVERSARY OF MY ACCIDENT

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

GIFT OR CHORE?

GIFT OR CHORE?

We are all so busy. Life moves so fast. It often goes from hectic to frantic to out of control. We are trying to do so many things in the course of a day. We have work to get done. Many of us have kids who need our attention, houses to maintain, places to go, people to see, things that need doing pronto if not sooner. And then if you are like me, I’m trying to do things slowly, sometimes,… Read More

INFRAGILIS ET TENERA

INFRAGILIS ET TENERA

  Infragilis et tenera, unbreakable yet tender. In Japan, a pottery tea cup that has been broken is often fixed with gold, thereby making the broken the most cherished and beautiful. A crack does not mean that the cup should be thrown away; a crack makes it stronger when filled with gold. Have you ever experienced a hairline fracture than ran the whole of your body that started to split, threatening to allow all your innards to spill out? What… Read More

WE DID IT!

WE DID IT!

We try and be grateful every day. Some days we have to really scrounge around in the corners of our lives and on others you can’t stop grinning from the gratitude. Paulie and I feel that way this week as Gratitude and Trust made it onto The New York Times bestseller list. It is thanks to many of you who have supported us and the book since we started and those who have joined in along the way. I think… Read More
