Your Pain is Valid

When I worked with the insurance company, the president/CEO had a few methods for motivating that I’d say were at best, ineffective. At least ineffective for people like me. The one thing that stands out–and I see where he was trying to go with it but it just didn’t work for me–kind of messed me up. Read More

How to Handle the Intangible

What if I handed you a strange looking object that you really weren’t sure about? You didn’t know what it was, what it did, what it could do… It just looked kind of futuristic and mysterious.

I know that everyone wants to live without regrets—meaning they want to live in the moment and live their best life—but, even if you’re living your life fully and making decisions based on the direction of the pull of your heart, you’ll still have some regrets (which, I guess is a good thing because you wouldn’t have made those moves if you weren’t listening to your heart).

Sometimes I wonder and almost fear what will happen if I run out of material. I mean, I’ve put a ton of work into building websites, gaining readers, and putting out books and blogs with the promise of putting out more. I guess it’s a fear of letting people down. Read More
