Blessed and Highly Favored

What the F*&k is Happening?!?

Here’s a question I got from a reader this morning: What the fuck is happening to our world Terry? Apologies for the language! Everything that is happening, well, seems to be taking us backwards and further away from love and humanity. I am truly struggling to stay at peace...

How Are Those Resolutions Working Out?

Are We “Wasting” Time?

How to Use Time Wisely to Create Fulfillment Have you ever heard someone say they wished they had the time to learn a new language, clean out the garage, or meditate regularly? My Grandma Esther would have said, “If wishes were horses all beggars would ride.” We live in...

Hurry Up and Wait!

Long-term Results in an Instantaneous World Can you believe how impatient we’ve become? I just made myself a cup of hot chocolate, with miniature marshmallows, of course. No, I didn’t heat the milk in a saucepan over the stove. I stuck it in the microwave. Less than two minutes...
