How People Should Behave

Dec 06, 2018

Yesterday, I was totally insulted by a complete stranger.

I was driving along, minding my business, when I saw a truck on one of the side streets waiting to turn.

It's a pretty busy road, so I slowed down, smiled and motioned for the man to go ahead and turn in front of me (and the dozen cars...

Fact vs. Story

Dec 05, 2018

For every situation in your life, there are FACTS and there are STORIES. Being able to distinguish between the two is a total game-changer.

Facts are things that definitely ARE or have been. Everyone would agree. It's virtually indisputable. There are no adjectives associated. They are the...

But if you DID know...

Dec 05, 2018

"I don't know."

"I'm confused."

"I'm not sure what to do."

"Should I do this, or that?"

So many of us live in a near-perpetual state of confusion. Over anything and everything!

Why do you think that is?

(Did I just trick you into saying "I don't know." - haha)

It's because confusion is easy. Our...

Change It or Quit Complaining

Dec 04, 2018

Years ago, my sweet mom was going on and on about how she needed to lose weight, how "fat" she'd gotten, how her clothes weren't fitting. 

Blah, blah, blah.

I had heard this rant before. Many, MANY times.

Be An Elsa and Let It Go

Dec 03, 2018

I have a friend that always says, "That's a hill I'm just not willing to die on." Which basically means that particular situation is not worth the extra trouble or the effort. 

It's not worth it.

Even if she feels like her side is right. Even if it seems like the other person...

Dec 03, 2018

You know those companies that come in after a big storm or disaster and do a full clean-up? Like, if your house has a fire or a flood and they come in and clean up all the soot or suck up all the water.

They send in their team of guys and gals, and you go stay in a hotel. You pay the company a...

Who Are You REALLY Hurting?

Dec 02, 2018

So much about divorce can be frustrating, maddening, upsetting.

You can stew and stew on one tiny interaction or one memory for hours (or days!). 

You know what I'm talking about. The replaying of the conversation, scheming what you "should have said." Thinking of all the ways that the...
