RATIONALIZING YOUR OWN BULLSHIT

A good friend of mine made up an acronym, ROB. He dropped it on me earlier this week, for good reason, and it gave me a little pause. He was right, I was. In fact, I’m so good at ROB one might think it was my full time job. People should pay me for that … Continue reading RATIONALIZING YOUR OWN BULLSHIT

TRUST THE UNIVERSE

This morning I listened to my children wake up. My son, the five year old, bounced out of bed, went to the bathroom, and came into the kitchen to give me some love before eating breakfast. He finished eating, took his dishes to the sink and went into his room to get dressed. Isn’t this … Continue reading TRUST THE UNIVERSE

GRATITUDE

Experience has taught me that more gratitude I show to others, the happier I, and as a result, others around me, become. Joy spreads joy; the more I give the more I get.

WAKE UP. BE AWESOME. GO TO SLEEP. REPEAT

I had an epiphany yesterday, during yoga, where most of my enlightenment occurs. Standard. Our instructor asked us to think about the one person who loves you unconditionally, no matter what, and to dedicate our practice that day to them. I of course immediately thought of my children. They love so freely, so much, so … Continue reading WAKE UP. BE AWESOME. GO TO SLEEP. REPEAT

LIFE LESSONS

Life is a journey, not a destination, and it’s going to be a bumpy ride no matter what path and vehicle you choose. Have goals, have vision, have ambition, be mindful of the road.  But stop asking yourself if it’s the “right” path every five minutes and just keep moving forward anyway. The question isn’t … Continue reading LIFE LESSONS

YOU’RE NOT REALLY _________ ALONE IF YOUR KIDS ARE HOME

"You're not really drinking alone if your kids are home" I saw that statement on pinterest yesterday, and it was just one of those things that you read and laugh, re-read, laugh again, think about it more and laugh some more.  It was funny on so many levels that move way beyond face value.

THE DAILY RUN: QUALITY CONVERSATION WITH ME, MYSELF, AND I

Twice a week I am fortunate enough to have a work schedule that provides me with the mornings to myself. The kids are at school, I’ve already put in a good three hours of work before they got up and off to school and I have deemed myself worthy of a break. Well, not just … Continue reading THE DAILY RUN: QUALITY CONVERSATION WITH ME, MYSELF, AND I
