Be Here Now

Be Here Now

Are you ready for 30 things in 30 days?  If so, then let's dive in. I figure that if we're going to get this party started, then let's go for something BIG right out of the gate. The first challenge I'm going to throw out is maybe the most important one of the bunch.  It may not be the easiest to apply, but if you put it into practice, it will have the most lasting and significant impact in your life.  So here it is... LIVE in the present. It's sort of  trick challenge, in that, the present is actually the only time [...]

The Gift That Keeps Giving

The Gift That Keeps Giving

Judging by the title of the post, you might assume I was going to write about the wonderful Holiday Crud that has been circulating for a couple of months now.  It seems that about every third person I have run into lately has some form of a head cold, or sniffles, or allergies, or something...well...cruddy.  I picked it up from someone and managed to pass it along, and yes, it seems to be the perpetual offering that each of us have bestowed on each other as we closed out 2009 and leap headlong into 2010.  Nice gift!

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 2

Worthiness is defined in the dictionary like this: "Having adequate or great merit; character, or value; of commendable excellence…deserving"   If you didn’t have a chance to read the previous post is this little series, check it out.  I wrote about how the first part of establishing positive self esteem in a child is in teaching them to believe in themselves. The second part of it is in teaching them to understand their worthiness. I think that this is very critical to understand and even more so to apply. I know a lot of [...]

Talent That Works

Talent That Works

I heard something that was pretty profound last night as I was watching the Ultimate Fighting Championship's UFC 107 event on television.  I am a fan of martial arts, and have grown fond of watching these MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) events.  It seems a little violent to some I know, and I also understand that it's not for everyone.  But to me, I truly enjoy watching the skill set of these athletes, as all of the world's fighting arts are put on full display.  It's a clash of cultures and styles, with opponents using everything from [...]
