Who Decides What Kind of Day You Are Going to Have?

Do you let other people decide what kind of day you’re going to have? What I mean by that is do you allow other people’s attitude or actions steal away your happiness? For instance when you’re in traffic and someone cuts you off does it tick you off? Does an unfair boss ruin your day? When your partner is miserable, does that mean you will be too? When someone is rude to you do you respond in kind? The truth is that people who are mad, angry, rude or just plain miserable are really very unhappy on the inside and...

What Are the Diamonds in Your Life?

They say, “Diamonds last forever.” And, that statement is true. Their brilliance and shine and value never diminish or go away. But, what typically doesn’t last forever is our appreciation of these little gems. In a way, their brilliance, shine and value are equal to the first day they came into your world. But for some reason the excitement and happiness you felt when they first became yours fades with time. And, the bling factor becomes just another thing factor. STUFF AND THINGS Think about how you felt when you got your new car. Were you excited? Did you love...

What Do You Want Your Life to Look Like?

I had several emails asking me to discuss goal setting for 2013. I’m sure many of you have been thinking about what you want the next year to look like. As I sit here reflecting on the last year, the good, the bad and the ugly; the ugly being those extra Holiday Party pounds, but hey, I look at it this way, it gives me another goal to add to my list. Ha! Plus it would be a lot uglier to have to pass up those mouth-watering appetizers oozing with cheese and wonderful flavors that make you melt along with...

It's Hard to Let Things Go and Even Harder Not To

Tom’s comment about last week’s blog really hit the nail on the head. He said, “I think it’s hard to let go of things, but it’s even harder not to. Wow…that is exactly the point. I got a lot of emails and a few comments saying that when ‘Bad Things” happen it isn’t always easy to let go or to get over it. And guess what? You’re right. That’s why I always preface these discussions about healing, letting go or dealing with adversity with the fact that it’s normal to go through the initial emotional upheaval. You may cry, A...

When Bad Things Happen

When “bad things” happen how do you react? First of all I guess we would have to determine what your definition of “bad things” would be. Typically a bad thing is anything that upsets you or rocks your world in some negative way. The more formal word would be “adversity,” which is defined as any difficulty or misfortune. And bad things come in all shapes and sizes. Anywhere from spilt milk, losing something you value, traffic jams, someone criticizing you or being rude to you; all the way to the” big bad things” such as losing your job, your home...

What is the Picture in Your Mind?

What is it that you wake up and think about in the middle of the night? When you catch yourself day dreaming where have you projected your mind in that moment? Are you thinking of anything good or do you find yourself in the middle of your problems? Are you having imagined conversations with someone who has upset you or do you find yourself dwelling on what is wrong in your life? Do you go over and over the same scenarios wishing things were different and do you replay the past and live with regrets? Now first let me say,...

How Do You Want to Feel?

Today is a new day and like today and every day you decide how you are going to feel by what you choose to think about. No kidding, even though your circumstances can have an impact on your life, how you CHOOSE to deal with whatever it is will be how you experience it. How you choose to view what has happened or is happening to you will affect your mood, your outlook, your depression level or happiness level, and it affects everyone around you. And, it will ultimately affect how you go through each day; either sinking in the...

How Do You View Things?

First, let me say, thanks for all of the well wishes for my trip to Peru…It was simply AMAZING! The Andes Mountains are truly majestic. I was blessed to be able to experience such a beautiful country and culture. I REALLY had a great time. I even hiked the death defying (Waynapicchu) Huayna Picchu. Now, let’s dive in. We’ve talked many times about how your beliefs about something have a direct impact on how you experience whatever happens to you in life. I know that most of you get it, but when the rubber meets the road, do you live...

Can You Regain Trust?

First let me say, “Wow.” I think I hit a nerve in the last blog. I got so many emails and responses that it seems most of us unfortunately have been on the receiving end of betrayal. I’m going to make this short because I’m heading out to the airport to go on my first real “adventure” trip to Machu Picchu. As I said in the last blog, regaining lost trust is an uphill battle and one that you and your partner need to be prepared for the long haul. It’s not to say that with time and commitment you...
