Fighting the Real Fires

Fire fighters are admirable people. When they arrive at the scene of a fire they don’t question how the fire started or who started it. They just get on with the job, as in the famous ‘Nike’ saying… Just Do It.

Fires in forests burn unchecked through the root system underground. It normally begins in one area then flares up somewhere else in a matter of minutes.

The same can be true of our emotions. We react internally to one thing in one place and the eruption occurs somewhere else…later! When we keep our emotions buried, for example anger, they only flare up and manifest in different forms, sabotaging a situation, as we react rather than respond. In fact, an emotion without social rules of containment and expression is like an egg without a shell; simply a gooey mess. Therefore emotions do need to be contained, however they also need to be listened to. read more

Each time we gather at a different person’s house. This time it was in a great, comfy space. It has that welcoming, settle in with good people, and connect sort of feel to it. She also has a big, high energy golden retriever named Rudy who typically gets banished to the basement or spare room when we gather. This night was no different – Rudy was closed in the basement where the kids were watching TV and hanging out. read more

De-Cluttering Your Space and Mind

Waking up in the morning to a clean, de-cluttered space brings me a sense of balance and happiness. Even when my children were young I managed to maintain a space where I could sit, if only for a few precious moments and enjoy the calm and peace of a minimalist space.

Of course we all know that life is messy business and cannot really be controlled. There are however ways to make daily life less stressful. Getting rid of extra stuff is one of the keys to diminishing stress.

Simplifying Life

Simplifying your life means doing what you enjoy or being with the people you love and eliminating whatever gets in the way of feeling good. Getting to simplicity is about discovering what truly has value to you and getting rid of the rest. The de-clutter journey liberates the mind and spirit and frees your energy for deeper levels of fulfillment. read more

Focusing On The Consequences of Every Action

In life we get to screw up a couple of times and never make the right decisions. But, it is okay because it is when we stumble for the first time we get to stand back up with wisdom. So, how do you get your life back and make the right decisions? Here’s how.

Some might be forced to work on a pros and cons list but not every decision should go through such process.
