My Mom Heard From Girl She Helped 60 Years Ago!

Happy Mother’s Day, folks! This is a super cool story about an email my mom recently got out of the blue, like really out of the blue. It was from one of her classmates in eighth grade. Sixty years ago… The girl had been new to town and of course new to that school, and my mom was [more…]

More On That Pain I Mentioned… Pretty Cool

Okay, so that didn’t take long… I just published a sharing a few days ago about the extreme highs and lows of this past year, and it feels important to explain a bit more. Not the details of any of the situations (not yet, anyway), but the details about pain and feeling in general. Because when we learn [more…]

2016 Review, 2017 Preview, & A Personal Sharing

Hi folks. There’s always SO much to share with you here, what with the magic going on in the office as well in my life and the lives of my friends and family. And I’m so busy! Which is awesome… After five and a half years, I feel like the practice is finally on pretty solid footing. [more…]

Spiritual, Religious, Atheist, or Agnostic? All Good!

Hello, good folks. When I’ve written before about stuff that might be perceived as “spiritual,” I know that some might have thought that I hate religion or judge people that follow a religion. So I’m writing this to make it clear that I definitely, absolutely, positively don’t! I’ll admit that I totally used to, though. I’m [more…]

They’re Probably Not An A**hole

I was driving around town the other day and almost witnessed a car accident. It was pretty wild, almost like slow motion in a way. I was coming to a light and there was a car to my left. There was nobody in front of us, so we were the first cars coming to the light. It [more…]

Am I Really Mr. Positive?

Today I’d like to clear something up. I am not positive! Stop calling me positive! I’ve been accused of this for years now, and it’s gotten worse since I declared 2016 to be The Year of the Happy Train. We must stop this madness. Because you know what? I’m not really that positive. I’m realistic. That’s what [more…]

Matt Kahn & The Fast Path to Awesomeness

Hi folks. I’m here to write about a novel concept… being nice to yourself. We’ve talked about that before here and then a follow-up two week challenge here. And then a couple of weeks ago, I found myself watching a video that will blow you away. It’s by a guy named Math Kahn that I totally love right now. He might [more…]

Chicken Tikka Masala

So I had lunch today at my old friend’s restaurant, Carmen’s Lunch Bar. It’s a lovely spot in lovely downtown Pensacola. I just had this really strong urge for the chicken tikka masala (which is amazing, by the way). It was just so interesting how random and strong this urge was. And clear, crystal clear – it just [more…]

Let’s Try This Again…

Hi folks, I’ve been on blog vacation! And it has felt right. I just crossed the four-year mark in private practice coaching/counseling, and things really picked up a couple of months ago. And when I’ve been off work I’ve just wanted to chill. It’s getting close to double the weekly sessions from before, so I’ve been seeing [more…]

What Just Happened??

Howdy folks! I think I’m just now emerging from the “WTF just happened??” phase after returning from a pilgrimage to Israel and France. It feels nice to be back. It felt natural to relax and let things sink in before jumping back in. I’ve had lots of counseling sessions and lots of new clients, though, and that’s been [more…]

All anybody really wants is peace. The good news is that peace can be learned. I’m serious. This should be taught in middle school, but it’s not. So I’m teaching it now.
