Sometimes we've just had enough.  Enough difficulties.  Enough sadness.  Enough loss.  Enough pain and heartache.  Yet, we persist.  What is it that keeps us plugging along, doing life, and somehow knowing that we must put one foot in front of the other? There seem to...

One of the gifts that I have received recently is the gift of trust.  Trust in life. To me, this does not mean trusting that everything will work out fine, or come out ok.  It means that I am learning to trust that whatever happens,  I will be ok--life will go on.  It...

Some days are just hard.  Life gives us unwelcome challenges.  People we love get sick, are in pain.  We come up against our own limitations to help, or to control the situation.   It is easy to fall into a chasm of fear at these times, where we are unreachable, even t...

Today I am thinking about all of the ways that I forget to be humble.  I think I know what is best.  There is no problem with this, if I am focused on my life and my decisions.  But, when I start to believe that I know what other people need, and what they should do in...

Some days, nothing goes quite right.  I have an appointment, and everything seems to conspire to prevent me from getting to it on time.  My toothbrush isn’t charged and I have to find a manual one, I spill my coffee taking it out of the microwave, coffee lands on my sh...

I came across a simple, yet profound resolution for the new year.  It includes a wonderful prescription for happiness.  I wanted to share it with you:

Be who you are,

Do you sometimes have days when everything just feels like too much?  Too much to do.  Too many worries.  Too much to figure out.  Too many problems.  Too many bills.  Everything feels overwhelming.  At times like this, the simple maxim, ‘one day at a time’, really can...

Today, I am thinking about kindness.  We all aspire to be kind, yet struggle to be kind to ourselves.  We have an idea that this is selfish or self-indulgent, or that we don’t deserve to be treated with kindness.  How can we be kind people when we leave ourselves out o...
