The Power of Forgiveness in the Meantimes

What I write here today has been gnawing at me for quite some time now.  A part of me wishes to NOT write this message for fear of being misunderstood.  Another part — the part by the way that is winning out here — insists that the risk of being misunderstood is perfectly acceptable, so…

"Transition" — The Segue to Successful Living!

I am convinced that unless and until we begin paying attention to the Necessity of Transition when facing the "mean times" of life, we may be doomed to perpetually re-live and repeat our collective history as a species, walking ever closer toward the brink of self-annihilation — until the day our fragile "failsafe" plans FAIL…

Giving in the Meantimes

Greetings! I anticipate that this message may be a little different than previous ones.  That’s OK, though!  I have to keep you and myself off balance a little every now and then! Today, I would like to throw out the importance of "Giving" in the meantimes while living in them!  All one has to do…

Sometimes, I'm the Problem!

Dog-gone-it! As much as I hate to admit this, sometimes the "mean times" that enter my life do so as a result of choices that I make!  As much as I would like to shift blame or responsibility to someone or something else it is I who opend the door and ivited trouble in for…
