Personal Responsibility

“YOU are completely responsible for all your success and failures, as well as your inner happiness.” I find this fact so uplifting and inspiring, that it often reminds me of the day I went hang gliding a few years ago. I have always been intrigued by the majestic sight of watching these “human butterflies” in

A Word From the Wise

I recently read a news article that disturbed me and I wanted to share my thoughts with my readers and see what you think. Apparently, a 98-year-old woman was served with eviction papers on her birthday – from her 71-year-old son. He believes she needs to live in a nursing home. However, she is still

The Power Within

There are times when we believe in everything and everyone but ourselves.  We seem to be in a constant search for mentors and role models. When we make mistakes in our lives, the most brutal beating we take is the one we inflict upon ourselves.   We count ourselves out before the referee has even blown

Changing your perspective

We are all aware that having a positive attitude in life will serve us much better than a negative one. For some reason, however, we can easily be drawn into the negative side. So how do we establish a positive attitude on a daily basis? I think, speak and write about this almost every day;

The Wind beneath My Wings

It’s always hard to believe in yourself or in what you’re doing when others are telling you that it’s impossible or that it can’t be done. I know what positive and negative comments and reactions can do to someone. I have experienced them both. We all have. Had I not had the belief and support

Prevention Begins With Being Prepared

Workplace health and safety hazards can be costly; not only financially, but more importantly, to lives as well.   However, if the right steps are taken, we can prevent them from becoming accidents. We don’t need to be surrounded by combustible materials to face serious safety risks.  Precautions need to be taken at home as well as

“Johnny Five”

What is “healed”? Does it mean to be restored to a former condition? Could it also mean to get better? If “healed” includes getting better – maybe even better than before, could it then be that the disaster – the very situation which we are healing from – is actually an integral part of the

Seeing Me as Me

Generally, even well-meaning people who interact with folks dealing with disabilities, tend to speak to us kindly, but not as they would “normal” people. It should be obvious that everyone has some sort of disability; many wear glasses, hearing aids or have other sensory challenges. Some are more dexterous than others. Some are as graceful

“The Wind Beneath My Wings”

“Look Dad, you’re flying!” Those wonderful words spoken by my three-year-old son, Christian, while I struggled to regain my balance, inspired the theme of my speaking business: “Who needs legs, when you have wings?” Flights of fancy, I believe, are as important as real flight. Of course, I will never really fly. That’s impossible. Or
