  A Missing Piece of the Mental Health Puzzle:   Mental health is a topic that is both front and center these days. It is a pervasive problem that affects everyone on some level and thus needs to stay at the forefront. But in addition, I am suggesting a slight, yet very important, shift of […]

“Life Untriggered”          “If I do not want what you want, please try not to tell me that my want is wrong.         Or if I believe other than you, at least pause before you correct my view.          Or if my emotion is less than […]

  You are “Good Enough”—AS YOU ARE!   A few weeks ago I learned that a friend of mine had sadly taken her own life. As tragic as this was, I understood. For only a year and a half earlier had her daughter and only child, also taken her own life.   A truly heart […]

The Art of Living a Virtuous Life   They say that we grow wiser with age. What I believe to be the foundation of this truth is that as we age we mature and get humbled by life. This opens our minds and hearts to possibility and allows us to dig deeper in order to […]

Mid-Life Introspection: The Truth of Life   Every so often when I reflect on my life, I find myself returning to rhyme, to express life’s greatest lessons as they have evolved for me over time.   We do not walk down a single path, on a road that’s predictable, certain, and straight.
