The Power of Relaxation

Let’s face it, life is busy. We often run from moment to moment, “doing” as opposed to “being”.  One might ask, “what’s the big deal with always doing?”  Here’s the issue, doing makes the human life more dense.  Titles and accolades are nothing more than a balm for low self esteem.  In the end, talent …

Finding Inspiration

I don’t know about you all but I find life to be long and short all at the same time.  As humans, we plan for magnificent futures while enjoying the amazing present.  As each of our goals are accomplished and/or life throws in twists and turns, we can find ourself uninspired.  Take note, it is …

Inside Out

I had lived the majority of my life before understanding how neuronal pathways remember what we teach them.  Literally everything you think, do, and say with regularity becomes programmed into your mind.  What this means is your mind is on replay each and every day.  In order to make changes to your life using your …

During the course of life, all of us make choices and perform actions.  I am sure we can all remember a time when we acted without a full understanding of a situation.  The likely end of such a scenario is pain to self and others.  Hopefully, as we age, we gain knowledge, develop insight, and …
