How to Behold a Mountain

I had been travelling on a bus across Tibet for the past three days. We were supposed to fly, but the Chinese military closed the airport. A bus was the only option. I sat in silence for most of the journey staring out the window. What else could I do?

If this were a […]

The Way to Fully Live Your Life…

…is to remind yourself that no one lives forever. Life is short. Years fly by and before you know it, you look back and wonder where the time went. You look back and wish you did not spend hours and hours in the office. Maybe you had a dream to live, but since […]

Picking Up Dirt…

Freedom comes when we are not so easily impacted by what is happening around us. It is what is happening within us that matters most. In the past, when something got me down, I would be down for months. I also failed to acknowledge what brought me down and tried to push it away. […]

Feel the Feeling….

…understand it and move on. A friend called the other day. She asked, ‘How are you?’ I was having a bad day, but as most of us do, I proceeded to say I was great. I had a hard time finishing the sentence and would have been lying, so I said, “Actually, today is […]

A Day of Thanks Turns into a Day of Waste

Less is More…

…and more does not always mean we are better off. As we move into November, Thanksgiving Day is around the corner followed by the holidays. Before we go crazy with overdoing everything, take some time to think about what the holidays mean to you. If you think it is about overcooking, overbaking, overeating, […]

All You Need…

…is LOVE. Not a mushy kind of love where you wait for someone to say ‘I love you’ so you can feel better about yourself. The biggest love of your life must be YOU being in love with yourself – first and foremost. Loving ourselves starts first with accepting ourselves for who we […]

Start saying YES…

…stop saying NO. Do you sometimes limit yourself by setting up barriers? Do you feel stuck in the same patterns and tell yourself that changing is impossible? A lot of us are stuck in a rut where the words ‘no’, ‘I can’t’, ‘that won’t work’ seem to be the only words that exist.

Just say […]

Stop Using the Mind…

…to figure out the mind. Some things in life cannot be understood and sometimes we just have to surrender and say – Everything happens for a reason. This is especially true for those painful situations that do not make any sense. Remember – everyone is in our life for a reason, not everyone […]

Life is a Journey…

Not a destination. We choose to make it worthwhile or not. Along the journey there are turning points and we are faced with decisions. Sometimes we make the right decisions and other times we don’t. There are also others who join us on our journey. Each person we meet comes into our life for […]

What Goes Up…

Must come down. What comes around…goes around. You’ve heard these sayings before, but do you believe them to be true? Everything is moving, cyclical, and changing. We are naïve to think that anything stays the same. You are already a different person from when you first started to read this. You have new […]

What’s in Your Suitcase?

Have you ever noticed when you go on vacation and pack bags that you end up taking too many things that you never use or wear? For some reason, we like to carry all of our favorite items with us. We like to stuff it all in a suitcase to make sure we […]

Fortune Cookie Wisdom

‘You are what you think about all day long.’ So my fortune cookie told me. Let’s use a simple example that we can all relate to – the weather. When you think and say over and over that you are hot, of course you will be hot. Maybe you do feel hot, buy why […]

Recalculating…

Isn’t it annoying when we use a GPS or Google Maps and miss a turn? The voice says over and over, “recalculating”. The voice attempts to get you back on track, but you don’t listen and convince yourself that you know of a better route. You keep driving and yet she keeps recalculating. Time […]
