COMPARING & SHOULD-ING Part 2
When I wrote last week’s blog about Comparing and Should-ing, I knew there was a Paul Harvey. . . the rest of the story moment that is so rich it needed to be a stand alone blog. It’s all about how we relate and communicate with each other. I’m calling it the comparison syndrome. We all…Read More

I have a dream . . .
This is just the right day to talk about the power of a dream. What does your mind imagine – what is your dream? Are you allowing yourself to have one? How deeply passionate are you about your dream? I’m asking you this because at times I have observed how dispassionate I’ve been about my…Read More
