Pin Your Tail Back On, Eeyore!

Rewiring Our Thoughts Are you accused of being a Pollyanna about life? Pollyanna was the little girl who always saw the silver lining in every cloud. Personally, I’d rather be Pollyanna than Eeyore from the Winnie the Pooh stories, the latter who sees the cloud in any silver lining....

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...

What’s In Your Consciousmess?

Is that a typo in the title? No. But when you think about it, consciousmess just might describe life as we know it right now. At this moment in time it seems a lot of us are angry with this mess we believe humans have made of our planet....

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...

Light a Candle

How tired are you of the negativity, outright lies and blatant disregard for common sense we hear from the media? I know. Silly question. It’s like whenever there’s a disaster of any kind in the world:  We don’t want to watch, but we do. Sometimes we get so addicted...

I Didn’t Mean It!

Ever say something and before it’s even out of your mouth you knew you’d regret it? You might have said right then or perhaps later, “I didn’t mean that!” Sorry. You sorta kinda probably did. Our comments might not indicate the type of person we want to be remembered...

Can We Save the World?

I admit it. At times it’s just overwhelming to me. I don’t know about you, but sometimes the charity emails, social media postings about the great needs of people locally and around the global, and the unending mail delivered to my house requesting donations is just too much. I...

Distractions

Are you easily distracted? I am if I’m not holding an almost constant vigilance with my purpose. I suppose it might have something to do with that ADHD thing. So, yeah, some guys in white coats feel I have this inability to effectively give my attention to what’s in...
