Deceitful People

I get so many emails from people asking me how to deal with betrayal. Have you ever been on the receiving end of a lie? Or, have you ever been deceived by someone you care about or worse yet who you are in love with?  There isn’t anything quite like the realization that you’ve been lied to by someone you trusted. When you are married or in a long term relationship it can turn your world upside down and turn you inside out. It could possibly be the worst feeling next to losing someone you love. Well, in a way,...

Everyone Has Something

The other day I had back to back emails from two different people living in different parts of the world telling me that they felt so alone. Whatever it is you’re going through, I don’t care what it is; you’re not alone! You may feel alone, you may act like you’re alone, and you may even convince yourself of it. But, regardless of who you are, what you do, what you have or don’t have; at one time or another everyone has something they have to deal with whether they like it or not. Think of all of the people...

Are You Addicted To Worrying?

Most people think of addiction as the need for and abuse of some form of substance such as drugs or alcohol. As we all know addictions can run the gamut from gambling, eating, pornography, shopping, playing video games, working, exercise and more. But the most insidious addiction of all is being addicted to the habit of worrying. Not all people are addicted to the maladies mentioned above. But worrying is the one habit that can befall even the most positive people at one time or another. Do you worry? If so, what do you worry about? And how long have...

The Snowball Effect

The snowball effect. You know the concept. The snowball starts small and gains mass and speed as it rolls downhill out of control. It’s the same with your mind chatter. Particularly if they’re thoughts of worry, fear or whatever you feel bad about. If left unattended, before you know it your thoughts can be spiraling out of control leaving you emotionally drained, depleted of energy and feeling depressed. The more you dwell on what’s wrong in your life the worse you feel. I was lying in bed last night thinking of things that weren’t right in my life. For me,...

Believe It or Not

What is belief? According to Webster’s dictionary it is confidence, faith and trust in something being true. What is faith? It’s a firm belief in something for which there is no proof; complete trust. What do you believe about yourself and your life? And, where do you place your faith? Really think about these questions. When you dig down deep enough and find the answers you will begin to understand why your circumstances are what they are. You know the old saying, “I’ll believe it when I see it?” This kind of thinking is what most people live by. The truth...

When You Get Knocked Down

Adversities come in all shapes and sizes and there is no question that occasionally they will even knock you off your feet. Sometimes you may feel like NOTHING is going right. Regardless of how positive you try to be, eventually you become worn down and you don’t even feel like getting back up again. After all, there is only so much a human can take and you may even wonder: When am I going to get a break? No matter what it is that is causing you to feel beaten down, discouraged or defeated, it only has power over you...

Listen to Your Words

Have you ever listened to yourself talk? Or, do you ever tune into what you are thinking? Just for today become aware of your words and your thoughts. I think you will be surprised by the choice of words you use to describe how you’re doing and how you feel, and equally surprised at how your thoughts are consumed with people and situations that bring up less than desirable emotions. Typically they are innocuous little comments that may seem innocent enough but they impact your mood, your life and how you live more than you realize. Your life and how...

Trying to Change Someone?

Have you ever tried to change someone or wish they would change? Has anyone ever tried to change you or tried to convince you that they are right and you are wrong? It’s amazing how often we either don’t accept people for the way they are or they don’t accept us for who we are either. This phenomenon runs the gamut from people telling you how to dress, what you should eat or asking why do you like to eat that, (because  “I like it” comes to mind!) to telling you how you should feel and what you should say....

Are You Stuck With No Way Out?

What is it that is holding you back from being happy? What do you feel is the road block in your life that “if only” that particular thing was different then you could be happy? Have you ever consider that the real reason you remain stuck in this imagined hell isn’t because of the outside circumstances but it’s because of you? Oh I know, admitting that it’s you is a hard pill to swallow and there are things that happen in our lives that basically suck, big time! But…it’s up to you as to whether or not you rise above...

Expand Your Vision

You’ve heard of thinking outside the box, right? When you think outside the box you open yourself to innovative ways of approaching problems or situations and you can look at things from a new perspective. But when you are stuck in a rut feeling like there’s no way out of your situation whether it’s mental, financial, emotional or physical it’s hard to think outside the box because you’re stuck inside of it! I often hear people say things like: I’ll never meet anyone again, I’ll never get out of debt, who would want to hire me, I guess I’ll be...
