This Positive Shit

This Positive Shit

I can still remember the conversation. My wife and I were talking about some of the good things that were happening in our lives, which hadn't been the case for quite a while. We had, for what seemed like a very long time, been powering through some pretty difficult and trying times, and there now seemed to be a little bit of positivity seeping into our otherwise rocky set of life events. To the best of our knowledge, the only thing we had consciously done differently during this particular series of hardships was change our way of [...]

You Talkin’ To Me?

You Talkin’ To Me?

The conversations that you have with yourself may be some of the most important that you ever engage in. I know that sounds kinda funny, especially since we often equate talking to ourselves with being a little nutty. We tend not to think too much about the things we say under our breath, or the things we say to ourselves about ourselves when we do something that we might consider less than terrific.  But I believe it's wise to listen to these conversations we're having, some of them taking place rather quietly in our heads, and it's [...]

Mother’s Day Tribute

Mother’s Day Tribute

It's impossible to express the thanks to our mothers to the degree that they deserve it.  Moms are just the greatest people on the planet.  It's as simple as that. Of course I wanted to post and say Happy Mother's Day to my own mom, who throughout my life has always been there, always cared, and continually provided a foundation of security, love, forgiveness, and support that is unmatched in this universe. I also want to say Happy Mother's Day and a huge thank you to my wonderful wife, who has made our home the greatest place on [...]

Road Warrior

Road Warrior

Imagine this: You want to go to Florida from California by car, so you plan a trip across the country.  You have always wanted to do this and you are at the point in your life where nothing else matters to you.  In spite of being a little scared of the unknown, you are extremely confident and motivated.  You have a map that gives you a pretty good idea of how to get there, money in your pocket for gas, and a cooler full of Mountain Dew (or some other form of stimulus to keep you awake for a long period of time).  At this point it's time [...]

Laugh Or The World Laughs At You!

Laugh Or The World Laughs At You!

Have you ever noticed that when you're in a crummy frame of mind things just keep happening to you to sustain that mood? It's like God or the Universe has this really funky and warped sense of humor. Here's the scenario:  You wake up in a bad mood and as you get out of bed you feel your back twitch.  "Oh, perfect!" you say to yourself with a full batch of sarcasm...then you get in the shower and drop the soap, repeatedly...now your back really hurts, you're mad at the soap and off you go to go grab some breakfast before you rush out [...]

Optimize Your World

Optimize Your World

One of my favorite quotes of all time comes from Anne Frank.  She said, "In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart". Considering what she went through in her life, it is a remarkable statement to say the least.  It speaks to the resiliency of the human spirit, and the unquenchable optimism that can take hold of a person, which is more powerful than just about anything else in the entire world. It is also probably one of my favorites because my wife and I were both in the play, The Diary of Anne Frank, [...]

Thanks…Let’s Keep in Touch

Well, happy 2010 everyone!

If you [...]

The Life of a Child

The Life of a Child

Okay, we’re in the midst of a 30 blogs in 30 days challenge here, people…so I’m thinking it’s time for a short series.  In other words, I need to bust out 22 more blogs in the next 19 days.  Now I don’t want to sacrifice quality, or start writing about things that I don’t understand…but I am going to need to “double post” at least a few of days to make it work.  It’s just the tiniest amount of pressure, but I’m feeling it, nonetheless… I’ve had some great feedback from a lot of you who have e-mailed about topics [...]

No News is Good News

No News is Good News

I tried something this past year, that I never would have imagined trying.  I stopped watching the news on television.  I also stopped listening to talk shows on the radio, unless they were related to sports (hey, we all have our vice). Now, to set this up, I used to watch cable news, local news, and I also listened to talk show after talk show on the radio.  I was a world news, local news, and political junkie.  And it was absolutely driving me nuts!  I would hang on the words of each talk show host, and feel frustrated when someone [...]

The Power of Positive

The Power of Positive

Positive energy creates more positive energy.  A positive attitude is literally contagious.  There is almost no cure for it.  Except relentless negativity.  Yes, negative energy is the kryptonite. A negative attitude is also contagious, and it spreads like wildfire.  It cannot easily be contained.  In fact, it can only be squelched by the power of positive. So there you have it.  Positive attitudes and negative attitudes are equally powerful and equally perpetual.  They are also the direct result of a conscious choice that you or [...]

Who Do You Think You Are, Anyway?

Who Do You Think You Are, Anyway?

What is it that you really want to do?  I mean really want to do?  Who is it that you really want to be? What's the goal...the ultimate achievement?  What is the one thing that you would like to accomplish if there was nothing holding you back?  Think about it.  (You can pause here if you like) Get it set in your mind.  (Really, do this, it will be fun, revealing, and quite possibly life changing)  Have you got it?  Okay, now what if I told you that I know exactly what it is that's holding you back...and that by getting this one thing [...]
