THE 40% POWER

THE 40% POWER

  Circumstances, attitudes, genetic make-up – key words for how we live our life. Because inherent in life are hardships and those slippery slopes, we know that it can’t always be rosy and yummy. But it can be meaningful, purposeful, enriching and pretty awesome. We need to live it in a flourishing way – pain and all – and get the most out of this one-shot deal. (unless of course you really believe you’re coming back for another chance) There… Read More

LETTING GO VERSUS GIVING UP

LETTING GO VERSUS GIVING UP

  “By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try. The world is beyond winning.” “But whatever happened to persistence, perseverance. Tenacity, or just plain CARING a lot? How do you stop caring??!?” Today’s blog is inspired by yesterday’s affirmation and the above response we got from it. It’s a question, a concept, sometimes a conundrum.  It’s one I  find myself facing all the time.… Read More

GRATITUDE: LOST AND FOUND

GRATITUDE: LOST AND FOUND

Many years ago, I found myself at Disneyland under duress.  Yeah, yeah, it’s the Happiest Place on Earth and I’m fortunate enough to live an hour away from it and it always made my son so happy when we went but this was just one of those rainy, dark Saturdays when the Happiest Place on MY Earth was the couch in the living room, a book and the dogs on my lap and “Dirty Dancing” on TV. Woe to Princess… Read More

I DON’T UNDERSTAND

I DON’T UNDERSTAND

  I don’t understand electricity. I use it anyway. Every day.  My ignorance has little effect on the value of the voltage. Recently, on late night radio, I heard that a light bulb isn’t really a constant light. It’s something like 60 flashes Per second. We see it as a constant.   I did a little research and found this. http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/solar-at-home/2011/08/18/how-optical-illusions-can-build-a-better-bulb/ Okay.  Got it. Not really. It’s fascinating but, a little above my pay grade. It’s information that sent me racing… Read More

THE ILLUSION OF TOP BANANA

THE ILLUSION OF TOP BANANA

I’m making up a new word.  Dis-attractive.  It’s to describe the highly addictive cyber candy right there at our fingertips every day.   You can open up your browser and lose yourself in the maze of information, gossip, shocking celebrity behavior, fashion disasters or conspiracy theories.  It’s Alice down the rabbit hole of “Search”.   It’s an easy place to miss-place huge hunks of our lives. And there is little on line more compelling than the sight of our own name in… Read More

SECOND BANANA SYNDROME

SECOND BANANA SYNDROME

  second banana noun Informal. 1. a comic who supports the leading comedian, often as a straight man, especially in burlesque or vaudeville. 2. any person who plays a secondary role or serves in a subsidiary capacity.   This is a very interesting blog for me to write, especially this week.  But I have been thinking if not this week – when? I’m writing it for several reasons; the first might be selfish, as I discover much about myself when… Read More

WITH GRATITUDE AND TRUST EVERY DAY CAN BE NEW YEARS!

WITH GRATITUDE AND TRUST EVERY DAY CAN BE NEW YEARS!

Today marks the first day of the New Year.  January 1st, 2014. For the last several days, in fact, most likely since Thanksgiving many people, (my guess is far too many people) have been over indulging in a variety of ways.  Perhaps you have been over indulging for decades. Many have been over eating, over drinking, over spending, under exercising, generally engorging themselves on life with the idea that come January 1st (that would be today) they will put an… Read More

THE WORRY WARRIOR AND THE ZOMBIE ZOO

THE WORRY WARRIOR AND THE ZOMBIE ZOO

  One of my favorite movies is “Shaun of the Dead”.  It’s a very funny film written by Edgar Wright & Simon Pegg, also director and star, in that order. There’s a running gag in the film where the lead actors are surrounded by zombies but never see them.  It’s an industrial strength take on the old Abbott and Costello bit where Lou Costello would try to get Bud Abbott to turn around to see the monster. By the time Abbott… Read More
