Off Of The Chain Gang

Off Of The Chain Gang

Hey Hey! Maybe it will take more than what has happened in your life to finally get you to take some chances and make some lasting changes.  We are very stubborn when it comes to doing things differently than what we have been doing.  It is at the point where we are so absolute in our ways that we would rather die than go against what has been drilled into us.  How does the world change if we are ... »

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

Hey there, So much of our world is made up, a response to programming, not purposeful or deliberate. At the same time there are very real manipulations and calculations that are happening all of the time. To me there is a lot of confusion, frustration and circuitous bullshit. Humans make life so much more complicated than it needs to be and, in many ways, refuse to take a route that is simple and ... »

Forget To Remember

Forget To Remember

Hiya!! What was your childhood like? What situations do you recall the most? Do you consider these things to be fact? Do you call this memory up often? Do you think it changes over time? It does. Memory is very faulty… our memories are a construction of our past, not a clone of it. What seems to be a single memory of say, a whisk, is actually your brain retrieving the name of the object, the shape... »

Grab Happy

Grab Happy

Howdy! I was recently working with a client discussing tempering joy… It isn’t the first time I have had this discussion, it is rather commonplace actually. Many people have a hard time allowing themselves to celebrate good news, possible successes or simply enjoy the moments they have for fear of those moments being gone. Now, not getting too excited about things because you could end up di... »

Fear of Flying

Fear of Flying

Hi! When you let go of the idea that you will be safe if you have a relationship with someone who understands you, who gets you; when you stop worrying about things that are not happening right now; when you remember that all of this is temporary fear pops up and then bounces away. It is the exact opposite of what happens for those who believe that a relationship will fulfill them, “knowing&... »

Honestly

Honestly

Hello, Honesty, it is sometimes the best policy.  Sometimes the pressure to be honest leaves people lying to themselves.  If you just don’t admit what is happening then you aren’t lying, right?  What if honesty isn’t the best policy in the way we have been using it.  How about it being the best policy for you to be honest with yourself, to own what is happening for you in order f... »

Working It Out

Working It Out

HI there! Working out is a wonderful things, or can be. It is also a practice of patience and faith. Results aren’t immediate when you begin your journey to fitness; the road is also an arduous one. The thing about getting strong and healthy is that you never regret it, you never ever look back on your less fit self and think that you made a mistake moving beyond that. When you are not at yo... »

If You Want It

If You Want It

Hi there, If you want to do something do it… you don’t have to be perfect at it or know what you are doing, really… just do it. If you want to write, for example, then write. Write your dreams, write your stories, write your hopes and write your fears. Write about other people, write about yourself, make up stories and speak your facts. If you want to dance, dance… everyday. Put music on, mo... »

Kidding

Kidding

Hi there, One of the reasons I enjoy speaking to children so much is that they are so much easier to talk to, share ideas with, create worlds with.  They dream, they speak their dreams, they sing, dance and have fun for no reason at all.  They laugh easily, make jokes that aren’t funny but end up being hilarious because they just enjoy the ridiculousness of it all and make friends easily.  T... »

Choices

Choices

Hi there, You will be ok.  If you push harder, sweat more, sleep less and go farther you will survive.  We have such a distorted idea of what we are capable of.  If you want to be successful, if you want to reach a goal you are going to need to suck it up and go for it.  Wake up.  WAKE UP!!!!  When things go wrong you figure out how to manage your life around trying to get them to go right… right?... »

What’s Good???

Listen Up!

Listen Up!

Hey! This is an appeal coming directly from my heart and soul, please, please, please stop putting yourself down, abusing yourself, telling yourself you don’t deserve this or that, being your own worst critic.  Please stop treating yourself like you don’t matter, aren’t worthy and are less than.  Please stop being the perfect example for emotional and physical abuse.  Please put ... »
