Holiday Traditions

I need to get away from all the political crap out there, so I am going to go get a Christmas tree this weekend. I didn’t get one last year because we were in the middle of a bathroom remodel and it seemed that everywhere in my house was a staging area for the construction. . . . → Read More: Holiday Traditions

Random thoughts on the state of our country

I understand that some people think we have gone overboard with political correctness. I don’t understand why some people seem to think that the opposite of being politically correct is being rude. If that is the choice, then I will choose to be PC. I do not see the need to purposely hurt people, or . . . → Read More: Random thoughts on the state of our country

It’s not over until it’s over

I am going through some rough times right now, and I ran across something President Barack Obama said in his last couple days as president: “…the only thing that is the end of the world is the end of the world.” Wow – that really speaks to me right now. I think it is the . . . → Read More: It’s not over until it’s over

Acknowledge the changes in your life

When something is over, it deserves to be acknowledged. Whether you are happy to see its completion or not, take time to say goodbye. It may be some event that is finished, a relationship that has run its course, a job that is over, or anything else.

There is always hope

There is hope. There is ALWAYS hope. I don’t always see it right away, and so will wallow in my despair for a while, but eventually I will find that hope and start feeling a wee bit better.

A new day

It dawns on me today, that even though some things are changing for what I perceive to be the worse, my head seems to be waking up and doing quite well these days. I really prefer not to have to give up anything, but maybe it isn’t too bad to give up a little to . . . → Read More: A new day

Choices & decisions

I am always learning from sessions with my clients – and I hope I always do!

And we may not always agree with the choice they make. . . . → Read More: Choices & decisions

Recalibration part 2

Recalibration

Recalibration – is that something you do very often? Lately it seems to keep coming up for me – it seems like I am constantly recalibrating my position. Maybe that’s a good thing.

Every time I think of recalibrating, I think of that lovely story written by Emily Perly Kingsley, about planning a trip to . . . → Read More: Recalibration

Consistent or Change?

Years ago – it seems like another lifetime – I used to design software for insurance agencies. The company I worked for had just put out the first GUI (graphical user interface) system for insurance agents – that’s how long ago it was. It was an exciting time – things were changing so fast.
