Listen To Your Heart

What does that little voice tell you right before bed? Or, when you are making plans? Or, when you are inspired by a life experience, something you read or by something someone said? Does it seem to whisper that you are not good enough or that you will never reach your goals? I think we […]

Anger Control 

I want to share with you this story, it was told to me by my mum when I was small and I think there are some lessons here that we tend to forget even as adults. Once upon a time there was a little boy who was talented, creative, handsome, and extremely bright. A natural […]

Don't Stomp on People

“It’s possible to climb to the top without stomping on other people.” Taylor Swift   Most people think that the rich and famous have trampled over lots of people to get where they are. Taylor Swift is trying to set the record straight here to say that it is possible to accomplish big things without […]

Measuring Life

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” Maya Angelou Here’s a great motto for life, not the number of years that we accumulate but the number of times we have those moments of awe that make life worth living. Be sure that […]

Depression

Unless you have suffered from depression, it is nearly impossible to know what it’s really like. Even if you grew up with someone who suffered from it, you don’t know what it’s like to be depressed. You just know what it’s like to live with someone who is depressed. From the outside looking in, depression […]

Understanding & Forgiving

I feel sometimes resentment and anger seem involuntary, like reactions you have to indulge for a length of time proportionate to how badly you were wronged. It might even feel like your anger is a justified retaliation, and you would be weak if you just let it go. The irony is that after we have […]

Ohana

“Ohana means family – no one gets left behind, and no one is ever forgotten.” Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois You might recognize this family quote from the animated movie, Lilo & Stitch. Though it is a children’s film, the message is a strong one of family. Family does not necessarily have to be your […]

Power and Beauty

“You are more powerful than you know; you are beautiful just as you are.” Melissa Etheridge This is a beautiful quote that will help you realize just how powerful you really are, and to stop spending so much time trying to become beautiful.

Don't Give Up!

“Doing your best means never stop trying.”    I like to plan; for the evenings, for the weekend, for when I am not at work. I like to make a plan and be as productive as I can with my spare time. I enjoyed making a long list of goals each week with a meticulously […]

Friendship Through The Years

Friendships are complex and unique relationships because unlike family relationships, we choose to enter into them. And unlike other voluntary bonds, like romantic relationships and marriages, they lack formal structure and specific role titles. You would not go months or years without speaking to or seeing your significant other (in an ideal world), but you […]

Random Acts of Kindness

  This quote is from the story of ‘The Lion and the Mouse’. ‘A Lion lay asleep in the forest, his great head resting on his paws. A timid little Mouse came upon him unexpectedly, and in her fright and haste to get away, ran across the Lion’s nose. Roused from his nap, the Lion […]

When the World Feels like A Scary Place…

  The Earth is broken. We are broken. Recent events worldwide are terrifying and sad. I have found myself fantasizing about running away a lot recently. My mind wanders to somewhere picturesque a few hours plane ride from here. I dream of packing up my family and close loved ones, flying out then driving to the […]
