Going to Hell?

One Moment. Recalculating. Dontcha love it when your GPS app catches that you’ve made a wrong turn and immediately recalculates your direction to get you back on the right track? Dontcha wish life was that way? It is! Spiritual mind treatment, or affirmative prayer, is like a spiritual GPS...

This May Tick You Off

Women of Power Have you noticed a resurgence of women acting powerfully? It’s not like there hasn’t been a growing stream of upwardly mobile females in the workforce in the past 50 years. But the #metoo movement acknowledging what men have denied for decades if not centuries, growing numbers...

So You Want Stability?

Fantastically Temporary Have you noticed how quickly attitudes, concerns, and outcomes are changing? At my “day job” in the aviation industry, nothing seems to stay the same. I’ve been involved in that line of work one way or another for over four decades and it’s always been that way....

Victim or Victor?

  Have you ever felt victimized? You may have been taken advantage of by someone you trusted, felt cheated out of an opportunity, or perhaps physically harmed in some way. Unfortunately, at least one of these possible scenarios may seem all-too-familiar to you. Much of what happens in our...

Is It Time to Quit?

So MUCH To Complain About!

Have you got complaints? “Have I got complaints? You should only HAVE the problems I have!” It’s not enough that we have our own issues to deal with. On top of everything else there’s the constant stream of bad news coming to us from social media. What can we...

Food Pictures, Anyone?

Are you craving non-political, non-outrageous social media postings? You’re not alone. The past couple of weeks have been exhausting! One of my co-workers posted this the other day:  “I've done a lot of unfollowing lately. Please bring back the posts of what you are having for dinner.” I get...
