Why Should I Worry, Why Should I Care ? I don’t like worriers. You know the type. They worry constantly and tell everyone their worry. My mother-in-law is a worrier. She says she can’t help it. My mother was a worrier. We would be driving on the freeway and she would think she saw something happening on the road (often it wasn’t anything particular) and she would make this noise like [...]

Letting Go -- What does that mean anyway? Why should we let go? What’s the benefit of letting go and isn’t that the same as giving up? When is it enough?

Our resistance to change and our inability to accept change can cause feelings of being stuck, restlessness and depression. Sometimes I ask in my groups, "Who here is having a fairly okay time in your life right now?" I wait [...]

Ugh with New Year’s Resolutions! I don’t like New Year’s Resolutions. I feel limited, vulnerable and almost defeated before I’ve begun, since I know from experience I rarely accomplish anything past January 31st. It occurred to me many years ago that resolutions could be made and re-evaluated anytime during the year. So why make only New Year’s Resolutions? Why not make [...]
