Avoiding the Fog Of Overwhelm Part I

fog of overwhelm

An example of overwhelm: driving in the worst fog I've ever encountered, many years ago. I couldn't see anything except the two red brake lights of the car ahead of me. I couldn't see the lines of the road, and I dared not pull over to the side of the road for fear of being hit by another car. All I could do was keep my hands on the wheel, pray … [Read more...]

What About The Voice in Your Head?

You have the Voice in your head. You probably know this. If you don't, you should. You may be thinking: "What voice? What is he talking about? I don't have a voice. Maybe he has a voice in his head, but I certainly do not have one in mine." Well, that's what I'm talking about. It's OK, we all have the Voice in our head. Maybe more than … [Read more...]

It’s Better to Be Grateful than Dead

Gratitude

Why do we have only one day a year dedicated to giving thanks? If it was up to me, we would have Thanksgiving day once a week, (minus the huge feast). Think about it: if you lived 80 years, having Thanksgiving day once a year would give you 80 days when you were reminded to be grateful. If you had it every week, you'd have 4,160 days reminding you … [Read more...]

31 Scary Questions to Ask Yourself

  It's all about scary this week as we approach Halloween and Day of the Dead.  It's a time when it's fun to be scared, as long as we know that it's just a movie, or someone dressed up as the walking dead. Truth is, there are plenty of really scary things out there.  But by far, the scariest things are those that we hide … [Read more...]

The Right Question Is Better Than the Answer

The right question

"Judge a man by his questions, rather than his answers." ~Voltaire Sometimes the right question is more important than the answer. When we ask a question, especially to ourselves,  we expect an answer. We all want answers. But sometimes, asking the right question is more important than getting an answer. Questions often contain beliefs. … [Read more...]

Meditation: Is it for You?

Meditation

"Meditation is a lifelong gift. It's something you can call on at any time. I think it's a great thing." ~Paul McCartney "At the end of the day, I can end up just totally wacky, because I've made mountains out of molehills. With meditation, I can keep them as molehills."~Ringo Starr. If you are old enough, you know that Paul and Ringo hung out … [Read more...]

The Most Important Thing

The most important thing is to be awake

The Most Important Thing. What is it? The Dalai Lama says spreading a message of harmony is the most important thing. Audrey Hepburn said it's to enjoy your life. Princess Diana said it was family. John Wayne said tomorrow is the most important thing. Steve Jobs said it was remembering that he will soon be dead. John Wooden said … [Read more...]

12 Ways to Cultivate Gratitude

Take responsibility for your ability to feel grateful now. Realize that nothing outside of you needs to change or be different for you to feel grateful. Have a mantra. Create the habit of repeating a word or phrase to say throughout the day to bring you into present moment awareness. “Be Here Now”, or “What is this?” or “This is my life, right … [Read more...]

You’ve Got to Be Alive to Have Gratitude

Gratitude

There may be some dead that are grateful aside from Jerry Garcia and the band, but maybe the highest form of gratitude  is feeling lucky to be alive. I find it interesting that we only have one day a year dedicated to giving thanks. What if every week we had a Thanksgiving day? (Minus the huge feast, of course.) If you lived 80 years, … [Read more...]
