“Different Paths in the Self Help Industry
The Self Help industry has reached such monstrous proportions that it’s a wonder the world can even contain it. The public is ravenous for information, so book publishers turn the books out by the thousands. Personally, I think this says a lot of positive things about our society… (Continue reading Different Paths in the Self Help Industry)

“How to Blow the Blues Away”
Around this time of year, you can find endless charts and articles comparing colds and flu. Is it a cold or is it the Flu?

More to the point – with our reasons…  (Continue reading this Reasons are the Building Blocks to a Better Life)

What had this beloved son done to “deserve” to be tortured and murdered? In a sentence? Matthew Shepard was gay…. (Continue reading Erase Hate – One Person at a Time)

“The Bridge You’ll Never Cross”

“Watch Your Slip!
Have you ever found yourself thinking, “I can’t believe I said that?!” – or, maybe, “I can’t believe I made such a mistake!” If you’re human, you’ve been there, done that, bought the t-shirt. I have my own collection of regret-tees. They never fit that well, do they?…. (Continue reading Watch Your Slip!)

All of us – every single one of us – has at least one change we need to make in our lives. We know full well what change needs to take place, and we certainly know WHY we want it to come about.

Control freaks don’t tend to make people around them happy. Okay, this is an understatement. Being in the constant orbit of a control freak can make you downright miserable.
