The Power Of Kindness 

It costs us absolutely nothing to be kind. Mark Twain once said, “Kindness is the virtue that the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” Every day, we are presented with an opportunity to be beacons of harmony, love, positivity, strength, and perseverance - in the process, sending the energy of kindness as we …

Write, Then Rewrite Your Story

I'm still writing and rewriting my story. None of us are finished products. The perception of growing old and retirement hijacks the mind to become complacent in living instead of eager to keep experiencing the magnificent beauty of life lessons. Each day is an opportunity to defy the negative inner voices in our heads. I …

Don’t Be a Fool – Live Today

There are plenty of ways to recognize a foolish individual. They say idiotic things. They generate unforced errors. They arouse the equivalent unforced errors persistently. And you tend to recognize a fool when you see one. Equitably, everything foolish you hear coming from someone else or out of your own mouth are the words: “Someday, …

Leave Footprints of Kindness

Change can feel uncomfortable and nerve-racking. But it is needed to evolve and for newness to emerge in our lives. I am still a works in progress. Discovering what you were born to do requires trial and error. Without mistakes, there is neither learning or innovation. Life is about being your best, not being better …

Here’s What I’ve Learned

I’ve learned that you cannot make someone like you. All you can do is be someone who is true. The rest is up to them; I’ve learned that no matter how much I care, some people just don’t care back; I’ve learned that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy …

Our Christmas Gift

Much last-minute shopping and preparation have taken place this week with the celebration of Hanukkah and Christmas.

Free Yourself, Forgive Yourself, and Merry Christmas

Someone else’s world is just as real as yours. Life is about being your best, not about being better than everyone else. Show the world something it has never seen before.

Pain is Growth it’s Never Negative

Difficulties are meant to galvanize, not discourage. Our human spirit grows strong by conflict. To ask "why" can be the first step to bringing about change and transformation. Realize, attempting to avoid a pain-free life is not realistic. Real holistic growth cannot flourish in zones of comfort. It is our responsibility not to become stuck …

Live The Truth

Time and time again, we hear teachers, leaders, family members, and life coaches telling us, ’To say what is right, to do what is right, to be comfortable swimming upstream or rejecting the choices of the masses.’ What usually goes without saying alongside these inspiring calls are, ”If you see fraud, say fraud” or “If …

It’s Okay To Fire Your Parents

For most people, it's unimaginable for a grown man or woman to choose to stop all contact with their parents. The people who provided food, clothes, and shelter, attended dance classes, volunteered at school, or cheered from the bleachers during every Rugby game don't deserve to be abandoned in their old age just because they …

Be True To Yourself

Every single day our society will attempt to make you be someone you do not want to be. Life is a beautiful and transformative struggle to become our true self.
