Hello Fear

The most valuable commodity in our world is fear. People become workaholics because they of their fear that they may become poor, or their fear that they may become insignificant if the work goes away.

Taking the Wheel

Confession: I am an instagram junkie. I don't post very often, but I spend a lot of time looking at what others have posted, and I even get a few (read: a lot of) screenshots. I have seen quite a few posts recently where people talk about how amazing 2016 is going to be. Someone... Continue Reading →


Put a frog in a pot of water and start heating the water. As the temperature of the water rises, the frog is able to adjust its body temperature accordingly.

I'm learning to stop overextending myself. This includes resting when I hit the limits of my physical ability, asking for help when I need it, saying no to conversations or relationships that are taking more than they are giving, saying no when a yes won't do anyone any good, and most importantly, taking a nap...

Living for others

In general, we spend way too much time living for ourselves and thereby overlooking the power of helping others out. It's true that we need to look out for ourselves and that we can't love anyone if we don't love us, but we shouldn't get stuck on loving ourselves and never move beyond that. It's...
