Stop Chasing…if when, why and how?

We are motivated to chase development as we enter this world, benchmarked against other babies, toddlers and children until our physicality has reached its peak. The chase then changes lanes to the mental capacity of knowledge as we learn and are tested viaContinue reading “Stop Chasing…if when, why and how?”

Present with All Five Senses

This is about being present. This is about how to know you are here and not there. This is about bringing it back to center.

I promisedContinue reading “Present with All Five Senses”

Dress Rehearsal to 50 with only six months more to practice before my debut!

Time to stop the guesswork Run don’t run, eat don’t eat, work don’t work, sit don’t sit…it’s insanity! Everything we are supposed to do, we aren’t. Everyone we are supposed to be, we shouldn’t.

Even Concrete Cracks

This was the reality check I was given as I found myself in a puddle of tears. “Even concrete cracks” is the resolve to understanding why even the strongest of the strong humans crack.

The Plight of 49

As I write this I am 72 hours from my 49th birthday or maybe better said, 72 hours from the completion of my 48th year on this earth. I am still searching for a lot of things but most ominous is the search for contentment. There is something about the “9”s that get our attentionContinue reading “The Plight of 49”

Who are you…really?

This moment in our lives when everything we thought “was” “is” we are faced with many questions about life and who we are.
