Don’t Tell Me What to Do!

You Know You Should … Do you like to be told what you should or shouldn’t be doing? I don’t. People often try to be helpful by finding solutions for us. It’s not usually as helpful as they’d like to believe. I bring up “shoulding” because perhaps you’ve noticed...

Let It Go

Does It Really Make a Difference? Have you found yourself watching someone’s mouth move, but not being able to be interested in the nonsense you’re hearing? I do my best to be engaged and concerned when someone is relating a story to me. Really I do! But there are...

I Demand Justice!

Revenge v. Justice Haven’t you ever wanted to see someone who’d hurt you “get what they deserve?” Most of us have. Grandma Esther used to say, “Every dog has its day.” Rest assured she wanted to be there to watch it happen, if not personally take part in the...

Schläger Schmläger

Refuse to Compare Yourself to Others How much do you compare yourself to others? If you’re anything like me, probably more than you would like to admit. Why do we use precious energy to put our lives side-to-side with someone else? What’s behind this very common need we have to...

Who’s Killing Your Dreams?

Why a “Dreamkiller” May Be Your Best Friend Do you find the complainers in your life a total drag? Do some people seem to suck the very life out of you? Psychic vampires. That’s what they’re called. This type of person is especially drawn to those of us who...
