Moving your life story from “I Can’t” to “I Can Do It!”

I sat in the car for a few moments before starting the engine, gathering my thoughts. I could literally feel my mind racing, like it actually had a heart beat and I started to laugh. I laughed and laughed. I must have looked like a loon to anyone driving by. You see I was laughing at the fact that despite my intentional focus on positivity, … Continue reading Moving your life story from “I Can’t” to “I Can Do It!”

Rejoice and be Glad!

One of my favorite verses from the bible is from Psalm 118:24:  This is the day the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. In my humble opinion, the implications of this verse are powerful, less in the literally interpretation of creation and more in the subtext of opportunity…human opportunity. As the sun rises and sets, we are given another chance … Continue reading Rejoice and be Glad!

“Que Sera, Sera, what will be, will be!”

Dear Doris Day, I heard that you died today at the age of 97.   A long life by any stretch of the imagination.    They say you will be cremated, as you wished, without any fanfare.  I’m sorry if I’m intruding on your final wishes, but I can’t let you go like that. Doris Day, you were an amazing actress, singer and advocate.  You were … Continue reading “Que Sera, Sera, what will be, will be!”

Steps to avoiding the rabbit hole of negativity

I am convinced that quickest way to slide down the rabbit hole of negativity is to allow yourself to become a complacent participant in life by cutting off your connectivity with others. Look, I get it, maybe you are going through cancer treatment or other health issues, or you are dealing with an unexpected financial burden, or maybe a break-up, death of a loved one, … Continue reading Steps to avoiding the rabbit hole of negativity

Finding “Me” in a Photo

I have always been fascinated with photography.  Oh, not in a way that I ever wanted to pursue any sort of career with it.  No, I’ll gladly leave that pursuit to my very talented brother and sister-in-law who have spent decades mastering not only a variety of camera lens and filters to achieve a perfect shot, but also possess a level of chill and patience … Continue reading Finding “Me” in a Photo

Reflecting positively on life’s weeds

There is good in the weeds! I truly believe in the healing power of positivity not only to heal us physically and emotionally, but to inspire us to live our lives seeking not what is wrong, but what is right!    That’s challenging because humans are curious creatures and it is our curiosity that pushes us into negative territory time and time again. Now I’m … Continue reading Reflecting positively on life’s weeds
