Alzheimer’s A to Z

Alzheimer’s A to Z

Without question, one of the most painful experiences of my life was watching my grandma slowly die from Alzheimer's Disease. Many of you who read the blog have read my posts about my grandma, and if you have, you know what an amazing individual she was, and how much influence she had on my life. I can't possibly say those things enough or in enough ways to ever do her justice, so I'm going to rant again...just a little bit. My grandma was one of the most vibrant and wonderful people who has ever lived.  She was full of light and [...]

The Power of Presence

The Power of Presence

If you're a parent, you have no doubt experienced a moment or two when you wonder if you're doing the best job you possibly can.  I actually believe that's a good thing, because, the way I see it, if you're actually concerned about the job you're doing, that means you care.  And if you care, that's a great place to start. I think the best parents are just like the best people in any other endeavor in life.  Always searching for new and better ways to do things, reading up on tips, asking questions, setting goals.  A serious and [...]

Your True Best Friend, Within

Your True Best Friend, Within

How much quality time do you spend with yourself each day? Think about it before you answer. I mean, look, you're always there for you.  I just can't help but wonder if you're really take advantage of that. Everywhere you go, you're right there with yourself...everything you think about, you're thinking about, it too.  You follow you around like a shadow, waiting to help, whenever you give you the chance. Do you trust yourself?  Would you go to yourself for advice?  Do you love yourself?  Do you respect yourself? Your life [...]

Right Here, Right Now

Right Here, Right Now

One of the most miraculous and wonderful things about this life, is that you can be or do anything you wish to be or do. Now, what really gives that idea power and makes it truly liberating for you, is that you can get started on whatever it is you wish to accomplish right now.  Right where you are, regardless of your circumstances. That's the beauty of it all! No matter where you are, you can begin to change your situation and begin to move in the direction of whatever it is you wish to achieve.  It may not happen overnight, in [...]

Life’s a Beach

Life’s a Beach

I've found that life is significantly more fun, when I'm doing fun fun stuff.  That's not a very deep thought, I know, but I was reminded of this simple truth this weekend. The family decided that we were going to take off down the coast, hit the beach for an entire day, have a great meal together and then shack up in a hotel somewhere instead of driving home. So, we took off.  We left laptops, video games, and cell phones behind (well, okay, the cell phone were in the car) and headed for the Pacific Ocean. Now, the funny thing is, [...]

The Law of Distraction

The Law of Distraction

Is the law of attraction real?  Absolutely. Do I believe in it?  I sure do. Has it worked its "magic" in my life?  Yup. Am I consumed by it?  Not a chance. You may be wondering why I would say that.  Allow me to explain myself... I honestly believe that the majority of the people who can't seem to get in the groove with the law of attraction make a huge mistake when they become totally consumed by the law itself.  Or the idea of the law.  They completely obsess over it.  LOA becomes all-encompassing, and nothing else [...]

Parental Guidance

Parental Guidance

Here's one for the parents. As I was writing for my blog this evening, I was outside enjoying a beautiful southern California evening, and watching the kids play in the pool.  I am always moved when I hear my kids laughing and enjoying themselves.  They are real characters, too.  I consider myself lucky to be able to share in their lives, and I take the responsibility of being dad as serious as a big kid at heart can possibly take it. Inevitably, and no matter how hard I try not to be sappy, I always end up waxing sentimental when I [...]

The Will to Win

The Will to Win

Are you willing to be extraordinary? Sounds like a loaded question, doesn't it?  Well, it's not. It's actually a question that you need to ask yourself and answer, if you have any desire to become the greatest, happiest, and most successful version of YOU that's possible. Your willingness and your will power both have a whole lot to do with it. Perseverance, determination, guts, resolution, tenacity, desire and will power are the fuels that run the engine which will power you to accomplish anything you can imagine.  Without [...]

You’re In There Somewhere

You’re In There Somewhere

As I sit here typing on my computer, I realize that I'm becoming one of them. I'm watching TV, listening to an iPod, I have Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus open in separate windows on my desk top, I'm monitoring my laptop, and I'm texting on my phone.  Hang on...okay...just had to finish that text. Seriously, have I lost my freakin' mind? Before you answer that question, check out your own surroundings and make sure you haven't become one of them, too.  How about it?  How many masters are you currently serving? They've been [...]

Travel Plans

Travel Plans

It's all about the journey, right? That is such an easy thing to say and such a seemingly tough one to actually live. But hey, at the end of the day, it's the truth. We'll never be perfect.  In fact, if we ever get to that point where we think we've arrived, we are destined to stop learning and growing.  And you know what that means... (see "If you're not growing, you're dying") So, in spite of the ups and the downs, I believe it serves all of our best interest to buy into this idea that life is truly all about the [...]
