Choose Good Fuel To Get Back on Track

This past weekend, I got together with a group of high school friends for an early St. Patrick's Day celebration. Kristen welcomed us into her beautiful home, all decked out with shamrocks and streamers, lined up a fun craft for us to do -- painting wine glasses -- and put ...

How To Spend Your Time Wisely

YESTERDAY was my sister's annual Christmas cookie party -- something she started at least 15 years ago. It's a time for little kids and big kids (i.e. adults) to come together to make and decorate holiday cookies. I hemmed and hawed about whether I would go this year, mainly because I've ...

Your Support Staff Is All Around You

I step on the soccer field to take my spot at right fullback -- the position my friend, Beth, used to play on our team. This was our first game back after Beth's passing. As I fix my headband and stretch my muscles, I notice a beautiful Monarch butterfly perched on ...

Are You Letting Old Thinking Destroy Your Relationships?

My phone chimes. Another text from Ron*. "What's the address for the restaurant we're meeting at tonight?" I roll my eyes. I know he has a smart phone so why can't he just look it up himself?! I text back: "465 West Main Street," as I groan. Well, now I don't know if I ...

How To Spend the Holidays with Loved Ones Who Have Passed

While driving home from a Christmas party last weekend, I pass an exit on the highway off which an ex-coworker lived. Sandy passed away several years ago, and as I continue my ride, I think about the time we worked together. Admittedly, she often drove me nuts. She was a "wake-up-talking" ...

This Is YOUR Independence Day

THIS Saturday, those of us living in the United States will celebrate Independence Day, commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, declaring independence from Great Britain. It's a day of barbecues, fireworks, and pride-filled celebrations. I like the idea of celebrating independence, and not just my country's. Imagine if we created such ...

Top 5 Ways To Be an Energy Vampire

You've likely heard the idea that you are the average of the five people closest to you. As you consider who those people are, are you satisfied with how they're representing you? Conversely, how might they think of you as one of their five? If you can't be bothered with high-functioning, good ...

The Power of the Adjustment Period

When I left for the airport a couple of weeks ago, the car said that it was one degree outside. Seven hours later when I arrived in Belize, it was 90 degrees with 85% humidity. My body nearly went into shock, the difference was so extreme. It took me about three or ...

Embrace the Ease

I'm on my way to drop friends off at the bus station when I notice a cyclist standing on the grass crying, her bike on the ground next to her. She's talking to a man, and is clearly upset. I pull over thinking she was either hit by a car ...

What Are You Attracting?

Some friends and I are hanging out in a small, public park, talking about music. "Ooh, I'm diggin' the new One Republic song, 'Love Runs Out'," I say. Some hadn't heard it yet, so I take out my phone and play it for them, amplifying it a bit on a portable speaker. I'm ...
