The Journey of Belonging

The Journey to BelongOnce upon a time; let’s call it, “The Beginning”, there was this guy.  The writer calls Him God.  The writer never really explains where God came from.  The writer says He was always there.  WOW.  Something we don’t understand already.  Okay.  So we have this guy God who already existed in the beginning.  Cool!  Now, on with the story.

Head Trash

One of the most fascinating things is how we all end up dealing with Head Trash.  You know, the messages you tell yourself that often seem to tell you that things won’t go well for you.  Perhaps the messages say that you shouldn’t take any risks because you will probably lose.

Do you have anything like that going on in your head?

Sometimes we call them tapes.  The messages that we replay over an over again.

If only I had said….something Continue reading Head Trash

Seeing Life From a Different Perspective

Last time I wrote about Harry and Sally.  They don’t always make the most logical or sensible decisions…at least it seems that way to you and me.

Today I received several phone calls.  One saying my new glasses arrived.  Another asking about how to respond to a Real Estate deal with a couple added and unexpected twists.  These two calls made me think about Harry, Sally, Rose Colored Glasses and how the lenses we see through affect what we see.

My friend called about the Real Estate deal.  He really needs a new place to live this week.  He called to say that the landlord asked Continue reading Rose Colored Glasses

Yearning for an improved relationship

A Yearning Heart Makes Decisions Blindly

Yearning for a good relationshipA Yearning Heart Makes Decisions Blindly

…for many and various reasons.

A brief study of relationship.

Did you know that one of the biggest contributors to the dating scams going on around us is the feeling that we are alone and abandoned?

Let me tell you a story about someone I met not so long ago.  Perhaps we can see one of the reasons that some of our friends make irrational decisions about new relationships.

 Harry Met Sally

Harry got married young.  He had a good idea of what he wanted and thought he found her in college.  They say that opposites attract.  Perhaps that is why Harry found Sally, someone who was organized and methodical to help him balance tendencies to be disorganized and distracted.  It almost worked.  The problem with marrying another person is, both people have baggage, issues and life experiences that contribute to the way we each make decisions.   How we feel is a reflection of what we believe about ourself, how we feel about our partner and how we feel about life experiences that happen to each of us.

There are reasons why Harry picked Sally.  He liked her beautiful long hair, her cute smile, her smart organization.  He thought he liked Continue reading A Yearning Heart Makes Decisions Blindly

instaquote-19-08-2014-02-16-24Without the right tools life is very frustrating.

The truth is, it’s very frustrating trying to live your dream when you don’t have the tools and the healthy support systems you need.  Most people give up their dream because no one is helping and encouraging them on their way.  Maybe you understand what I’m saying.

When you try to make a LifeShift™, but don’t know exactly how or where you’re headed – and you don’t have the support you need Continue reading Change Your Story, Change Your Life! – Part 4
