Leap of Faith

Leap of Faith

I was frozen with panic standing there on the edge of a piece of volcanic rock tenuously protruding 60 feet above the glistening and beautifully translucent aqua blue water. As I looked down, I could see big mounds of volcanic rock and coral below. Of course, they...
Be The Hope

Be The Hope

Last month’s personal note was a call to action to never give up on hope despite the daily exasperation and despair of living in what often seems like a world gone mad. It’s completely normal to get overwhelmed by the enormity of all the bad things happening. It’s...
Spring Cleaning of Your Mind

Spring Cleaning of Your Mind

Welcome to Spring, a season of new life and new beginnings.  There’s a freshness and a stirring sense of promise in the air as we wake from our winter hibernation and look forward to what summer and the rest of the year will bring.  Growing up this meant little league...
Who Is the “My Person” in Your Life?

Who Is the “My Person” in Your Life?

We all need someone in our lives that we can call “My Person.” This idea of “my person” grew out of a saying Carolyn and I have: “thank you for being my person.” I am not quite sure when we first started saying it, but it has become a powerful...
The Power of a Simple Act of Kindness

The Power of a Simple Act of Kindness

A simple act of kindness can have a huge impact. For example (and this is by no means an exhaustive list), saying “hello” to the passerby, asking someone how they are doing, calling a person by name, saying “thank you for your service” to veterans and first...
What’s the Point If You Aren’t Having Fun?

What’s the Point If You Aren’t Having Fun?

Many of us have felt “stuck” or in a rut at some point in life. Oftentimes it’s due to the fact we become focused on the “end-game” and not the journey. If your happiness is dependent on accomplishing certain goals, what happens if fate intervenes and outside events...
Honoring Our American Heroes

Honoring Our American Heroes

Over the years, Memorial Day has become the unofficial launch party for the upcoming summer. Beaches and backyards are filled with frolicking and barbeques. There are sales galore for all the shoppers out there. To top it off, many of us get an extra day off from work...
Stillness is the Key

Stillness is the Key

As one of our clients likes to remind us, “the world spins so fast!” It’s true that life moves so quickly that it oftentimes feels we are barely keeping up, if at all. If you feel this way, you are not alone. In addition to drowning in overwhelm,...
Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

When we say those words we usually say them with a gusto fueled by joy, exuberance, and excitement. However, for some, this time of year can be laden with melancholy and laments of regret about time gone by or unmet goals and aspirations. Added to that this year for...
Life (Happily) Interrupted

Life (Happily) Interrupted

Life never goes exactly as planned.  We fill our days with expectations, tasks, and goals, only to have life disrupt them all.  We truly live a life interrupted.  This year has underscored that very boldly for all of us in different ways. Some disappointing, some...
Get Rid of Your Panic Button

Get Rid of Your Panic Button

With the tempest that has been swirling around us this year, it’s natural to feel a sense of unease, anxiety, and even downright panic. These are natural human reactions and emotions. Indeed, it is part of the human condition and in our makeup to have an internal...
The Power of a Perfect Moment

The Power of a Perfect Moment

For me, a “perfect moment” is a moment of calm, presence, and connectivity that results in a “nirvana-like” awareness.   It’s a moment that often comes out of nowhere and overwhelms me with an instant clarity of mind. It leaves me with a peaceful truth and...
