10 Keys to Lifelong Happiness

I recently came across a terrific blog post claiming “The 15 Things To Give Up To Be Happy.”  Although I agreed with most of them, some of them I didn’t.  I don’t believe that those same 15 things will work for everyone.  Nor do I believe that the 10 that I will share with you

Quite the “nerve” and “straightforwardness” of a flight attendant!

Quite the “nerve” and “straightforwardness” of a flight attendant! I received a bouquet of flowers from a flight attendant on trip from Honolulu to Salt Lake City yesterday. Was it an act of kindness? A gesture of love? Was it that “Christmas time of year” sort of giving? Was it someone that I knew or

Believe In Yourself

I have found out that belief in yourself is absolutely necessary if you want others to believe in you.  If you don’t believe that you can do something, how can you expect others to?  Where would David be if he hadn’t believed he could have defeated Goliath? We all know the story – it’s one

We’ve all heard that saying: “Talk is Cheap.” When I hear that, I believe that should be followed by another famous proverb, “Action speaks louder than words.” In other words, we must make sure that our talk is not cheap.

Choose Your Leaders Wisely

Blame Game

We’ve all had events happen in our lives where we felt it wasn’t our fault. We think to ourselves: “Why did this happen to me?” It could be a trivial thing (not trivial at the moment!), where you couldn’t find your keys. You know exactly where you put them …. They aren’t there!! Or –

Paying It Forward

Most of us know what the above title means. And I’m hoping that we have all had the opportunity to do this. It is so simple to do that I think it would happen more often if we just thought about it. I have a friend that works at a restaurant and he told me

Wounded Prison Systems, Wounded People

Have you ever had one of those days when you have so many thoughts running through your mind, that you can’t get them written down fast enough? If this happens during the day; that’s not so bad. But when it happens in the middle of the night, and you aren’t able to grab a pad

Finding Your Center

  Each day of my rehabilitation, I gained confidence and ability. Having lost all strength in my stomach muscles, I found it nearly impossible to maintain my balance if I leaned to one side or the other. Sitting on a mat with my legs straight in front of me, I would attempt to raise my
