Time Machine

Share this:

Time Machine  If I had a time machine, there are a lot of things that I would go back in time and do differently – a choice I made, the way I treated someone, actions I took or did not take . . . But undoubtedly, over time, I’d look back at some of those […]

Pursuing Joy

Share this:

Pursuing Joy  Pursuing joy in making phone calls. Pursuing joy in cleaning the kitchen. Pursuing joy in taking the kid to the dentist. Pursuing joy . . . We can pursue joy anywhere we go and in anything we do. We can also turn all those things into chores and then suffer our way through […]

A bad idea

Share this:

A bad idea  Sales training teaches us that if we make a prospect feel stupid, they probably are not going to buy from us. We can do this by using jargon, big words, acronyms, by making things unnecessarily complicated, by acting superior . . . That seems like a good strategy to apply everywhere in […]

Emotional creatures

Share this:

Emotional creatures  We are emotional creatures, not logical creatures. Our emotions run the show. Last week was a weird food week. Nothing tasted good or was filling. I ate more and more often than usual. And, I ate less healthy than usual. My thoughts about getting back on track and my attempts to use will […]

Flip that switch

Share this:

Flip that switch  I see this fairly regularly: A person thinks, “I need a break.” Then their actions start to become very ineffective, things keep falling apart, setbacks keep occurring, etc. They end up getting the break they said they needed but not the rest and recharge because they are flailing around in ineffective action. […]

What in the world have we agreed to?

Share this:

What in the world have we agreed to?  Imagine that a kid makes a mistake and then mom or dad gets really mad. At that moment, the kid could create an agreement along the lines of “I’ll be perfect from now on and in exchange, you will never get mad at me again (because that […]

Self-Care ~ luxury or necessity

Share this:

Self-Care ~ luxury or necessity  So often when people get busy or stressed, the first thing they drop is self-care. This is a mistake. When they do this, they are looking at the cost (time) rather than the benefits. Self-care (exercise, prayer, meditation, personal growth time, relaxation, social connection, etc.) can produce stress relief, stronger […]

Triggers and Plans

Share this:

Triggers and Plans  If we don’t have a plan (and so often we don’t) to deal with getting triggered, then we just react. And, we usually react poorly. And, we will certainly get triggered. It is a part of life. If we have a pre-thought-out plan, then we can make a choice that serves us […]

Drifting along like a tumbling tumbleweed

Share this:

Drifting along like a tumbling tumbleweed  Tumbleweeds go wherever the wind decides to take them. They just drift. If we don’t know what matters most and where we want to go and then if we don’t have a plan and act around that plan – then we become human tumbleweeds. We just drift. And, the […]

Stress Dust

Share this:

Stress Dust  The pull cord on one of my window blinds broke. When I took the blind down, I was amazed to see how much dust had crept into that tiny space between the top of the blind and the window frame. It is kind of like how stress and worry sneak into our lives. […]
