Have You Just About Had It?

How are you currently handling the barrage of media information? I lived through the Ronald Reagan years in California when President Reagan was governor of that state, as well as remembering his presidency. Suffice it to say I have a pretty good idea of what it was like to...

Will You Accept or Except?

Theme for the Week of March 28: Identify Yourself With What You Want Affirmation:  We see a world in which individuals rediscover their personal power to create an individual life that works within a life that works for everyone.

Getting Everything We Want

Can we have everything we want? I’ve often said that we can have everything we want, but we just can’t have it all at the same time. That seemed logical until recently. Turns out I’ve wrong all along. Mike Dooley of tut.com says the correct answer is, “Absolutely not!”...

Hurry Up and Wait

What do you do when you can’t do anything about an uncomfortable situation? As I am writing this I am sitting in an airport terminal without electricity and that includes air conditioning. In addition, the airline’s computer systems have gone down in three major cities, thereby causing a stoppage...

Stop Tolerating Your Life!

In my last blog I wrote about accepting people as they want to be. In other words, stop trying to teach the pig to sing – it doesn’t work and it annoys the pig. Please don’t get self-righteous and tell me I’m calling people pigs, although that wouldn’t be...
