This is Why We Experience Lack

Who Is Your Source? Ever get your paycheck and think, “W…T…F?!?” (WTF = Where’s the FAITH? What did you think I meant?!?) With so much going on in our lives we can forget significant events. Situations like forgetting about an advance on our salary, a deduction for a loan...

Three Words to Avoid

How Being Right is Destroying Our Planet When was the last time you did an “ego check?” You may not be familiar with the term, but I’ll bet you’ve heard this one:  “You’re cutting off your nose to spite your face.” No one would really do that, but it...

All Stop!

When Life Comes Screeching to a Halt Remember when the captains of the various Enterprise vessels on StarTrek ordered, “All stop?” The ship came to a complete stop. Engines were shut down. The crew wasn’t going anywhere. Every so often life has an “all stop” for us. Last week...

Mistakes “R” Us!

My CV of Mistakes Don’t you just love to tell others all the things you’ve done wrong? Hmmmm…. Probably not. But that’s exactly what this blog is about. “CV” (if you’re unfamiliar with the term – many Americans don’t know what it is!) stands for curriculum vitae, Latin for...

What Really Matters

There is so much going around me in my world. I suppose the blessing is that most of it is going around me and not going through me. It reminds me of how a common phrase in Christianity to “be in the world, but not of it” can have...

Self Care is not Selfish

Do you find it difficult to address your own needs? I know a woman who is a wonderful mother and homemaker, but she seldom takes time for herself. An executive I know works long hours during the week yet spends most of the weekend arranging meetings for the following...

God Is…

  Let me begin with the acknowledgement that you may substitute any other more palatable word for “God” in this discussion. Many people still see God as the old man in the sky who punishes us if we’re bad and blesses us if we’re good (maybe…if He’s feeling so...
