  I go down to the shore in the morning and depending on the hour the waves are rolling in or moving out, for sale and I say, viagra 60mg oh, I am miserable, what shall- what should I do? And the sea says in its lovely voice: Excuse me, I have work to do. ~ Mary Oliver I walk in the woods weekly, and I’m still in awe of what I find. The trees, the birds, the fallen pinecones and fresh air amaze me as much today as they did a month ago. When I walk my brain opens […]

I used to give advice and guidance based on my intellect. I thought that knowing something meant you read it and understood it, page but I’ve come to learn that true knowledge – at least in the context of personal growth – comes from the most basic life experience. For years I tinkered on the brink of understanding the meaning of concepts like love, more about solitude, trust, fulfillment and happiness. I’ve read, studied, experienced and observed all of these and more in some form throughout my life, but I’m still a novice at best. This used to frustrate me […]

It’s been a week of being in the pines, prescription and some of my old habits are sticking like glue. As I go through my days I’m realizing that I’ve gained some serious tools while coping with bigger city living, view and they’re more deeply ingrained then I would have expected. It’s been hardest to untangle myself from the need to plan. This was particularly surprising because I’m not a planner by nature. I actually love to be spontaneous so when I noticed this behavior taking shape in a place where it wasn’t necessary I started to contemplate what was […]

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 self-loathing […]

  Unhappiness is an important pathway to Happiness. As a culture we’re on a happiness seeking mission always trying to get away from being unhappy, cheapest but the truth is that your unhappiness can actually direct you toward being happier. Everyone wants to be happy. In fact, happiness is probably at the top of your list of goals in life, and I’m sure it’s been a New Years Resolution in the past. Wishing you were happier won’t get you very far because as you’ll learn, your happiness is actually something you can control. But what about your unhappiness? You aren’t […]

  The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness. – John Muir I’ve been walking around lately with gritted teeth. A bit raw and irritated by everything and everyone. Traffic, rude people, long lines, and assaultive noises rub me the wrong way and eat away at my happiness. This is the world that many of us live in, and there isn’t much about it we can control. It’s not everyday that we see things this negatively, but there are those times where perspective is getting the best of us, and a downward spiral ensues. On these days the […]

Some months bring more to us than others, but April is super special because it embodies so much beauty, renewal, and promise. I feel like I wait all year for April because somehow I find myself blossoming each year around this time. What April really shifts for me is my concept of time. Somehow time becomes less urgent and frenetic, and that space gives me the chance to step back and review my relationship to this construct that often feels more like a commandment than a gift. I think we forget how powerful time can be when we move away […]

I hear stories all day long. Sad stories, funny stories, unbelievable stories, and stories of courage. People tell me things that they don’t tell anyone else in the world, and while this sometimes can feel overwhelming, it’s more often an honor and privilege. Within these stories are themes of love, loss, success, ambivalence and fear. I help people connect the dots of their lives by listening and watching closely for anything that will help me piece together the puzzle of who they are, and where they want to be. Sometimes these themes are so buried under layers of defense and […]

The way you see the world is called your perception, and your perception is driven by your internal experience of yourself, others and the world. What you take in from your environment gets digested and then regurgitated as your external experience. This is true both as a child and as an adult and it’s a constant ongoing process throughout life that is dependent on what’s happening in any given moment or day. However, the most imbedded experiences that stem from your earliest life are the most influential, and this is particularly true when it comes to love. The most important […]

I say this because I know you blame yourself for something in your life. Maybe it’s eating that extra cookie, your marriage ending, your child’s poor grades or not working that extra few hours to meet a deadline for work. We’ve all been in that place where we beat ourselves up for failing, not quite meeting the mark, giving up or not following through on commitments to ourselves or others. Aside from the rare occasion that you become a victim and blame others or the world, you most likely spend a good part of your time wondering how you could […]
