The Curse of The Coulda-Shoulda-Wouldas

It's not your fault. You know- that thing (s) you did "wrong" in the back of your mind, sometimes insinuating itself to the front of your mind, aggressively spreading its big ass across even the little nooks and crannies of your mind, eventually invading every facet of your waking, and quite possibly, sleeping hours? That's the thing... Continue Reading →

I Love George Bailey

*It wouldn't be Christmas to me without George Bailey. I wrote this piece some time ago and I read it often as a reminder to myself to hang in there when I'm feeling the way George did on his "crucial night". If you are having a crucial night yourself, I ask that you remember that... Continue Reading →

Eternity? Who me?

I'll just come right out and say it: I don't like the idea of spending "eternity" playing a harp. I wouldn't even want to spend eternity playing a French horn, which happens to be the musical instrument I played from 5th grade through high school and love. I love to hear it starting at minute 1:05... Continue Reading →

Your Inner Voice

 Many moons ago, I remember asking a psychology professor if people who were crazy knew that they were crazy or if they just went through their days in a blissful state of unawareness that something might be amiss. He scratched his chin and told me that it was a good question. He said that he felt it probably... Continue Reading →

CockyShit-head is a superpower

So all this time you believed that being considered a cockyshithead (CSH) was an insult? Guess again! Whether it be movie characters like Katharine Parker  and Zack Mayo or real-life individuals from my own actual life experience, CSHs are a tremendous source of fascination for me.                         ...

To be a simple man

 Lynyrd Skynyrd  understood what it was to be a simple man: Mama told me when I was young "Come sit beside me, my only son And listen closely to what I say And if you do this it'll help you some sunny day" "Oh, take your time, don't live too fast Troubles will come and... Continue Reading →

Forget the numbers

You are not a number. Who you are cannot be represented by a number on a scale, by a calendar, or in a checkbook. The world makes assumptions based on numbers, but we can choose not to adhere to them by teaching ourselves to access the true core of our existence and see beyond these assumptions. This...

When growth is a slow-go

I may have mentioned more than once that I am challenged by my impatience. When I get something that I am sure can help others, I want them to get it too. I want them to get it yesterday in fact. I realize that this is not only unrealistic but also unfair. It has been laid on my heart LOUDLY... Continue Reading →

Start with ONE

The push-up, with its multi-faceted muscle toning benefits, should become your best buddy. It's not a new move, by any means, but many beginning-to-intermediate exercisers avoid it due to a misguided belief that they "can't do them". BZZZZZZZZZ...sorry, I'm going to need a judge's ruling on that: YES.YOU. CAN. It is simply a matter of learning the technique and... Continue Reading →
