I’m Surprised At You!

Are You True to Yourself? Do you ever find who you are, who you really are, conflicts with what others think you should be? It was Terry Cole Whittaker who wrote, “What you think of me is none of my business.” Many of us know this to be true....

Do You REALLY Listen? “YOU’RE NOT LISTENING TO ME!” How many times in your life has someone screamed that at you? I’ve been on the receiving end of that frustrating communication. And, speaking solely for myself, I have to say that almost without fail when those words were thrust...

Do You Talk to Yourself … a Lot?

Are You Spending or Investing? Do you spend or invest? We do both, of course, but you’re probably thinking about money, right? This blog has nothing to do with currency, bank accounts, retirement funds, or a stock portfolio. What then? I’m glad you asked! It’s about the way you...

This past week we’ve had a most interesting example of how to let go of the past through celebration instead of mourning. News reports and videos showing the celebration of the life of Nelson Mandela by the South African people have inspired people around the world. But a few...

Twenty Shopping Days Till Christmas!
