Tomorrow is promised to no one

This past Sunday, we attended a small BBQ at the house of some friends – another couple.  On Monday night, the husband flew to Peru, arriving in Lima some time on Tuesday.  Yesterday, he traveled to a small town to meet with friends and do some swimming.  In the afternoon, after a swim, he had […]

Changing the world

“… you can’t predict – and most likely will never know – if and when some small gesture you make today will cause someone else to turn their life around, or even just pay it forward, extending a helping hand to someone else. Every act, no matter what kind, causes ripples in the seas of our lives.”

You cannot have a happy ending to an unhappy journey

If we go through life focused on the negative, using every opportunity to point out the ugly and the unfortunate and the unjust things in this world (all of which are personal judgements, by the way), we’re going to end our lives unhappy, unhealthy, and full of resentment and fear.

Let the experiments begin!

Just reading the introductory sections of this book gave me goosebumps – I’m connecting to it like I haven’t connected to a book in a long time – and it’s got me excited to see the results.

You don’t get a better Corvette for suffering

If someone has spent 14 years walking to work, and has developed a desire to drive a new Corvette, is their desire any more valid than yours, which came forth when you watched a great commercial about the latest model? It’s the same desire.

WHINING IS A VERY GOOD THING!

“The entire Universe is set up to produce whining within you! You cannot squelch whining. You are born whiners. Whining is a good thing. Write that down in big letters: WHINING IS A VERY GOOD THING!”

What’s love got to do with it?

Appreciation is a concept I can get my head around. I know how it feels (yes, I know how love feels, too – don’t go there), and I know how to look for something to appreciate in another person, a work of art, an idea. But I’ll be honest; it’s not something I’ve…

The Universe is only answering YOUR vibration

…She wanted to live a life of fun and freedom and financial independence and health and happiness… But she wasn’t willing to take responsibility for it. She died broke, alone, mostly without friends, and convinced that she was the butt of the Universe’s jokes.

Could be tomorrow afternoon

If thinking about a thing sets the Universe to work delivering it, doesn’t it make sense that thinking about it can also delay, obstruct, or even prevent the Universe from delivering it, as well?

The Egg

“How many times have I been reincarnated, then?”

“Oh lots. Lots and lots. And into lots of different lives.” I said. “This time around, you’ll be a Chinese peasant girl in 540 AD.”

You really are the center of the Universe

No wonder 2 year olds can be difficult to handle! They’re having their little worlds re-shaped, against their wills. They hear the word “no” a hundred times a day; why should it be a surprise that it’s often the first thing THEY use to respond to someone else’s requests/demands/orders?

Go do something

If you’re a parent, you are doing your kids a disservice if you don’t kick them out of the house to play. Take away the iPhone (blasphemy!, I know) and the portable Game Boy. Force them to…
