The noose around my neck

Often in these blogs we have looked at realizing our dreams, and what is holding us in place away from those dreams.  What ever is holding us back is like a noose around our necks; sometimes it seems the harder we try to move forward the tighter the noose gets.  That is exactly how a noose …

Don’t take it personally

As I continue my review of the wonderful book by Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements, and compare the suggestions contained in this book shamelessly with those contained in my own book It’s All About Me, today we look at the idea of being more impersonal with our work with others.

I can’t do it!

No one on this entire planet can keep us from doing anything we choose, except ourselves.  And, we are sooooo good at keeping ourselves from achieving our goals with two very small words; I Can’t. Once we utter those words we are done. More often than not what we are really saying is “I won’t.”  I …

Whose path is this?

I loved my mother and father, and they loved me, for that I am grateful.  Yet I often wonder these decades since they left this planet  what they would think of the path I am walking in my life right now.  The simple truth is that it does not matter how they would be viewing …

Suicide

No, nothing glib in this blog, suicide is a very serious experience in so many lives.  For the person who finds themselves sitting at the precipice of life or suicide the world is a very empty place.   This person believes the world will be better off with out them, and that further more, no one will care if they …
