Do You Obsess Over That Long List of Projects to Complete?

By on Jun 25, 2015 in Stress and Anxiety

What is it about getting to the bottom of our lists? Do you find that, as soon as you cross things off your list, other items automatically appear?  It’s like that multi-headed monster or the whack-a-mole syndrome! I believe far too many of us are going about this in the wrong way. What we’re actually seeking is a sense of completion, and that’s a mindset. We’re...

Do You Find Yourself Playing Rushin’ Roulette?

By on Jun 25, 2015 in Stress and Anxiety

I had a very humbling experience last week.  I wasn’t paying attention while driving and ended up practically running a stop sign – yikes!

Then again it could be the year for the corgi, Cavalier, Chihuahua or...

We’ve all been there. Someone makes a random comment, and it drives you right up the wall. Whenever something impacts us in such a deep way, it’s usually because we have that same belief or fear on some level. And when it gets verbalized, it gets on our very last nerve. This reminds me of the story about a couple who had invited friends over for dinner. During the...

What do you do when your world suddenly stops?

By on Mar 18, 2015 in Stress and Anxiety

I had no idea on the morning of November 4th that my world was about to be rocked.  It was just an ordinary Wednesday until the phone rang around 10:30 a.m. My mother reported she had gotten sick and was feeling achy.  I went to her place and called her doctor.  At first the symptoms seemed like those of the swine flu, and she was treated accordingly.  When the...
