It’s true that habits are hard to break. I’ve read that it takes 21 days to stop doing something you habitually do, including things like nail biting, smoking and cracking your knuckles. But what about habits that are not as noticeable to the outside world like worrying, over-planning or complaining? Often considered traits, certain actions or behaviors are more habitual than inherent which means you can reduce how much you do them – or stop them all together. Just because you know something is bad for you doesn’t mean you won’t do it, an often overlooked fact that leads to […]

You are made up of many different parts. You are body. You are mind. You are spirit. You are physical. At your core you are yourSELF. When I say you are yourself I mean you have a core self that serves as the inner spine of your being. If you were to dig deep beneath the persona you present to the outer world you would find something very authentic and real. You would uncover the essence of your truest self; the self that has most likely learned many magic tricks to disappear when things get uncomfortable or unsafe. It’s sad […]

I have a love hate relationship with January. On the one hand it brings the idea of renewal, fresh beginnings, and opportunities for growth and improvement. In fact January is named after Janus, the God of beginnings and transitions. I usually dread January because I already know in December that I’ll set intentions and not see them through. It’s like accepting an invitation to a party that you know you won’t want to attend. In the moment it sounds okay, but when it comes to doing it not so much. January is about starting, and starting is almost always hard. […]

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. – Carl Jung I don’t need to tell you how powerful the Heart Chakra is because if you’ve ever loved someone or had your heart broken you already know. I’m also not going to write a long essay about how you need to love yourself or love unconditionally because you’ve read it before, and you know that most of the time your intention in these areas is greater than results. Here’s what I will tell you about the […]

“It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” – J.K.Rowling Choices, choices. There are so many to be made on a daily basis. Some are fairly benign like what to have for dinner, how much to tip the waiter, which shirt to buy, or what movie to watch. Then there are the bigger, more consequential choices. The one’s that could take days, weeks or even months to make. Whether to leave a relationship, buy or rent a house, or deciding whether to have children make picking a move theater seat seem easy. I […]

“It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.” – Bill Gates Being perfect is overrated, and ultimately impossible. No matter how hard you try to do things just right or in a way that’s construed as acceptable there are always going to be moments of failure. It’s not your fault because society has taught you to pursue ultimate success and avoid failure. Doing things well is ultimately what gets rewarded. If you’re perfect you’ll be accepted, honored, praised and even loved. If you make mistakes or fail at a task you’re very […]

“Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.” – Frank Zappa I have always tried to see life as a journey. There have been times in my life where I’ve been pulled to view my passage here on earth as a means to an end, but when I choose to keep a pilgrimage perspective I find that I’m less disappointed (or even crushed) when things don’t go as planned. Most of us walk through the world with the presumption that we will get where we intend to go, but more often than not the path you choose takes a […]

Sometimes I feel like I’ve had it up to hear with mindfulness, since it’s become the new buzz word in the arena of personal growth. When something is pushed so hard in my field I tend to get disinterested, and start looking for another way to think about the concept. Mindfulness is not necessarily a quality, it’s a state of being and a practice. We all aspire to be mindful, but it’s unrealistic to expect anyone to be this way all the time. Sometimes we can feel discouraged or bad because we aspire to master something that isn’t meant to […]

Forgiveness is one of the most conflicting issues when it comes to personal growth and living a peaceful life. This is mainly due to the various interpretations and meanings we all have with regard to forgiveness, most of which we inherit from others and the world. Conceptually forgiveness is complicated, and it can feel completely insane when you’ve been injured by another person. This quote sums up what we are trying to accomplish with forgiveness. “Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.” ~Jean-Paul Sartre Forgiveness is about making peace with the people and situations in your […]

“Happiness can be found in even the darkest of times, but only to those who remember to turn on the light.” -Albus Dumbledore As human beings we all have an inner flame that drives us toward the life we want. For some it’s a small flame, and for others it’s a raging fire. Then there are the times when the spark just goes out, and your left in a dark place where everything in your life feels bleak. Your flame can get stomped out by depression, heartbreak, transition or even physical changes in your body. The feeling of being completely […]
