Everything is Connected

The Circle of Life, Ying and Yang, give and take, the Earth has a way of balancing and interconnecting everything. These are two of my favorite videos that not only show the interconnectedness of life, but also how one small act can make an entire world of difference. In 1938, Sir Nicholas Winton, saved almost […]

Greener Grass

It took a few viewings of Almost Famous for the great lessons of the movie to take hold. My favorite lesson is about Mystique. It’s been four years since I wrote about that lesson. It’s one I’m still working to learn. Is it movies that have instilled the belief the grass is always greener somewhere else? Or, is […]

We’re Failing Social Media. Again.

It seems like every other day the Twitterverse is gloating over another social media “failure”. A tweet that’s gone awry, someone who tweeted to the company account instead of their personal one, a “cute” post taken not quite right. Most are mistakes made by interns or freshly minted associates. You could say, teachable moments. Others, […]

Almost There

“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us is something valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch.” – e.e cummings Perception is a funny thing. Oftentimes, it’s also a reality. And more often then not, our own perceptions are our worst enemies. Our perceptions tell us that […]

Limitless Possibilities

The words “limitless possibilities” has popped up a lot lately. To me, it’s a fascinating concept that is difficult to master. What does “limitless possibilities” mean? I’m glad you asked, because here are three explanations: In a fiction book I read recently, the main character struggled with opening herself up to the limitless possibilities. Instead, […]

5 Lessons of 2012

It’s that time of year when we all look back and reflect. When I started this series in 2008, I thought it was silly and overdone. These days, it’s one of my favorite sets of posts to reread. They bring back the memories of the people and events that were important to me in year’s […]

Memories Missed?

 How do you know if you miss someone/thing or the idea of that person/thing? It’s a question I’ve had over the last week or so, although I’m not quite sure how to answer it. Thanks to this blog, I can read back on a lot of memories; they bring the moments back to life. What […]

The Perfect Guy

A lot of my single friends know exactly what they want in a partner. They have a list of criteria for someone to live up to. I’ve never had one. I’ve never been able to articulate what my “perfect guy” looks like. But, I think I’m starting to get a pretty good idea. When I […]

The Best Parts

I loved this post so much, that I wanted to repost it in its entirety here. It’s a good reminder of how to choose some of the people you decide to keep in your life and why you should let others go. I went on a date last night and then you texted and asked, […]

The Definition of Love

I’m also asking people, “How do you know,” “What’s it feel like?” I never really get a straight answer or the one I’m looking for. Few, if any, are able to articulate their thoughts around loving someone else. But, I thought this post did an interesting job. So much so, that I wanted to repost […]
