It is possible that there are no negative or positive things in this universe at all, and instead, that there are only things that have the potential to be either negative, or positive, or both. I written about this before. Last week I told you that there are no bad foods, for example. Today IContinue reading “The Power of Thoughts”

Easy to say, not to practice. In many situations, even really difficult ones, it is often all that is needed. But to really just listen means to do so with the full intention of understanding the other person, without interrupting, without getting to your next thing on time, without passing judgement, and without projecting yourContinue reading “Just Listen.”
What Did You Want To Be When You Were A Kid?
The other day my son asked me, “What did you want to be when you were a kid?” Forty years of my life’s career path played like a movie in my head, going in reverse. I watched how well I was living in congruence with the true answer to his question overlaid against four distinctContinue reading “What Did You Want To Be When You Were A Kid?”
I know a little bit about transformation. A long time ago, I was as unhealthy as a person could possibly be. I was overweight, out of shape, depressed, and completed depleted of energy. So, how do you transform yourself? It’s not about being ‘perfect’, having a great body, or trying to look anything like thatContinue reading “Transformation”
The Problem With Shortcuts
The problem with taking shortcuts when you feel like you really need to is that once you begin, you start taking shortcuts when you don’t feel like you really need to. There is another way, a way to transform this potentially devolving trend into an evolving habit. Instead of trying to fight or ignore theContinue reading “The Problem With Shortcuts”
I’m Messed Up.
I’m messed up, and I’m OK with that. I have fears and anxieties. I procrastinate. I avoid things I don’t like. Sure, I work on those. But I don’t beat myself up over them (like I used to). Part of being human is being perfectly imperfect. Trying forever to be whole when, of course, oneContinue reading “I’m Messed Up.”
But, What Will You Get Out Of It?
That’s what people often want to know when you’re about to step into something new and uncertain. Perhaps it will be a ‘failure’, nothing more than a learning experience. Perhaps not. Perhaps we cannot predict what it will become. Perhaps that’s exactly the point. If everyone knew exactly what would happen at the end, thenContinue reading “But, What Will You Get Out Of It?”
Is This Good, or Bad for Me?
By far, one of the most frequently asked questions I get is “is this good, or bad for me?” By ‘this’ I mean all sorts of foods, supplements, drinks, exercises, and more. Here is the answer: it depends. If you spend any significant amount of time learning about health and wellness, you’ll find that theContinue reading “Is This Good, or Bad for Me?”
A Simplified Plate
I can be totally satisfied with one main ingredient on my plate. Plain scrambled eggs for breakfast. A roasted chicken breast for dinner. A roasted cauliflower for dinner. I could go on. You get the point. Sure, add a little spice and technically it’s more than one, but, I said ‘main’. Yes, variety is great,Continue reading “A Simplified Plate”
How Much Water Should I Drink?
Well, it depends, but about half of your bodyweight in ounces per day is a good baseline. If you’re drinking far less than that, it’s probably not enough. If you’re drinking twice that much or more, it may be too much. Other pertinent questions that might help uncover more are: How often are you peeing?Continue reading “How Much Water Should I Drink?”
