Living in Exponential Times -- We live in a time where information is being garnered and put out at supersonic speed. We literally cannot keep up with the outflow of information now available. We must slow down and deliberately pay attention to how this information stream is affecting our lives and our children’s lives. How can we navigate without being sucked under? How can we manage [...]

There is a saying, “mind the gap.” It was originally brought about by the subway system in London, reminding passengers to pay attention to the space between the platform and the train.  I’ve heard several speeches where people have expressed this phrase as a metaphor for being mindful. Today I’m thinking about "minding the gap" in terms of something different. I would like to suggest [...]

Perhaps goal setting should be changed to “focus setting” or “focus intention” since to accomplish any goal we have to ask ourselves, “Where is my focus? Who or what receives my attention?” If you have a goal, say to lose weight, and yet the only thing you are doing is weighing yourself, well that obviously won’t be enough. You must spend time to focus on the desired outcome and [...]

Why is it that we feel we can’t ever make mistakes? Why is it so painful? Did you ever think when you made a mistake, “Oh others have made this mistake as well?” I tend to feel very isolated in those times and full of judgment. I can’t even think that others have made mistakes, I’m so lost in my own condemnation as if I should have know better, could have done better, could have been a [...]

Of Course You Doubt Yourself-You’re Trying to be Perfect! Trying to “be perfect” is a no win proposition. Stop please. Among the many problems of trying to be and do all perfectly is that you are inherently imperfect. Being imperfect is actually part of your entitled humanity. Entitled humanity? What does that mean? It means that you were created with certain flaws on purpose. And your life [...]

Living with a Generous Spirit -- “Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.” Martin Luther King Jr. Many religions talk about being generous to those less fortunate. We are reminded at this time of year to be monetarily generous to charities. But what does it mean to live generously? How does one live with [...]

We are in the season of madness. Everyone, everywhere shopping, driving, doing, doing, doing. Sure, let’s miss our holiday to spend the night camped out on the sidewalk, and break windows (3rd Street Promenade's Urban Outfitters) rushing in to buy, buy and see what else to buy. Let’s not forget about the people who have to miss their holidays for stores to open early for us to buy [...]

Hunger is a funny thing. We tend to think that it’s all physical, but it’s not. I know some of you are thinking right now, “What is she thinking about? Of course hunger is physical.” But hunger for many of us is deeply rooted into feelings of having or being enough. And the fact is that we often don’t feel that we have enough or that we are enough, so hence we are hungry. It’s not [...]

Being Bullied as an Adult -- Recently a story regarding newswoman Jennifer Livingston, became national news when she responded on television to address a man who had attacked her via email about her weight. (www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/03/jennifer-livingston-news-anchor-today-show_n_1935779.html) The man made a personal attack on Ms. Livingston by suggesting that she was a poor role model [...]

Taking Inventory of Your Emotional Toolbox -- What is an Emotional toolbox? These are your inner resources to help you cope well when things are difficult. Notice I didn’t say just “cope.” I said, “cope well.” There’s a big difference. I know this difference. Coping without doing it well feels like trying to survive. What I mean is when things come at you, what do you pull out [...]
