The key is to see that we have a choice each moment we are alive. The power is in knowing that while we may not always like the choices we have, we do have choices.read more
“It’s all your fault”!
“Well, you told me to”!
Blame sucks. Big-time.
And not for the reason you think.
We often move through our lives from point A to point B, without considering the journey in between. We move from bed to coffeepot, from house to office to store, from start of work to end of task often without considering or paying attention to the travel itself.read more
We splashed our way through the prior night’s rain puddles. My dog Velo dove headlong into the shrubbery following the scent of rabbits all along the ridge.
