MISSING IN ACTION

MISSING IN ACTION

One morning last week I fixed a delicious, almost healthy breakfast of gluten free cereal, berries, a little yogurt and low fat milk.  I say almost healthy because I quickly polluted the entire affair with some really wonderful sugar loaded granola.  A “habit” that began innocently enough months ago. My intention was to add a tablespoon or two of “yummy” for taste. That lasted about a day. My “just a touch” of granola had grown large enough to finally startle… Read More

EXCUSE OR EXPLANATION?

EXCUSE OR EXPLANATION?

  Excuse and Explanation, two words, two distinct actions that are not only confused, but often misused. One thinks one is explaining something when in fact they are actually using an excuse. The dictionary defines excuse as a “defense, justification, and an alibi.” Where as explanation is “clarification, account and enlightenment.” Despite their very different meanings we often make an excuse when we should be offering up an explanation. We should be clarifying when we are defending. Here in the… Read More

WHO ARE YOU FOLLOWING?

WHO ARE YOU FOLLOWING?

  I don’t know the difference between my left and my right. Well, that is not true, I do know; I just don’t always pay attention to which is which. For instance if you happen to be in car with me and tell me to “Turn left”, I may take a sharp right. Which usually leads the person with me to ask, “Don’t you know the difference between your left and right?” I’m not sure where my inability to sometimes differentiate… Read More

HAND IT OVER

HAND IT OVER

  The concept comes in many different forms, with many different sayings attached. “Letting go and letting God”  is perhaps the most famous refrain. A less specifically religious, but one that covers a multitude of higher powers…“I don’t know what to do – you take over.” The second affirmation in Gratitude and Trust covers this. We are only letting out the first two affirmations before publication. “I don’t know how to do this but something inside me does.” They all fall… Read More

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

FIRST RESPONDER

FIRST RESPONDER

  As we all know the first responder is the person on the scene of an accident or crime that shows up ( hopefully) before anyone else. EMS, Police, Firemen, the first ones we rely on in case of emergency. They are fast.  They are proficient in being ready to move in a split second. They are so trained to act they don’t actually have to think. That ingrained sense of “I’m on my way” is why you hear about… Read More

GOING THE DISTANCE

GOING THE DISTANCE

  You hear that phrase a lot these days.  Sometimes it’s about finances.  There’s a particularly unpleasant commercial that shows people being given pieces of ribbon that equals their financial preparedness.   They’re all shocked to find the savings or retirement plan they thought would carry them to the end of their days only lasts till they’re 67 or 71 or some date that’s quickly approaching.   It’s fear as a marketing tool.   And it probably works. Going the distance has sweeter… Read More
