How To Live A Lopsided Life

How many of us can still hear our parents saying, “sit up straight” during dinner time or, when we needed an attitude adjustment, “you better straighten up?”  My father, in particular, was a stickler for walking tall with shoulders back; no slouching! I’ve tried to walk the straight and narrow path most of my life.  However, at this stage of the game, I’m going radical.  I’m going to throw caution to the wind.  I’ve decided to take on...

Opening Your Heart to God

There’s a natural rhythm to our beating hearts. It’s an ordinary, life-giving thump-thump, thump-thump, thump-thump.  Steady, unfaltering until…well, until…something goes wrong.

I had a heart problem. Heart Mapping During the noninvasive...

What if the people at work were nicer?  What if I had taken better care of myself?”  Playing the what if game can be a powerful drain on our psyche. I know because I’ve been guilty of living my life smack-dab in the middle of the what if principle.  Different circumstances raise my what if levels and, lately, the gauge...

Running Into Your Daddy’s Arms

I admit to being a “daddy’s girl” while growing up. We had an extraordinary relationship and, as Father’s Day approaches, my thoughts are filled with special moments with him.   So many remembrances…like this one. In my neighborhood, each family had homes built on one acre of land… big backyards were the norm.  I was 6 years old and, along with two of my neighbor buddies, we decided to do something we...

How To Take Charge When Someone Is Hammered

Admit it…we’ve all been hammered at some point in our lives.  I’m not talking about being over-served with libations.  Nope…I mean when you feel as though you’ve been pounded into a 2-by-4 with no chance of escape. You’re discouraged. You’re weary. You’re disheartened. You want to pull your hair out in frustration!  Life isn’t going your way!  You’re on the precipice of falling into a chasm of...
