Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized that this is the best day of my life, ever! There were times when I wondered if I would make it to today; but I did! And because I did I'm going to celebrate! Today, I'm going to celebrate what an unbelievable life I have had so far: the accomplishments, the many blessings, and, yes, even the hardships... Continue reading

It's fine to work toward future goals, but don't forget that today will never come again. You have only twenty-four hours to enjoy it. Some people put life on hold while striving for their dreams. At first their theme song is, "After I attain ______, then I'll be happy." Then, later, after the success of attaining pales, the regrets are felt. "Why didn't I take... Continue reading

May I have forgiveness in my heart for anything I think I've done wrong. May I forgive myself for what I think were all my past omissions and commissions. They are long gone. I understand that I was a different person then and this one is forgiving the one that I was. May I feel the forgiveness filling me and enveloping me with a sense... Continue reading

To love others you must love yourself. You can only give to others what you have yourself. This is especially true of love. You cannot give what you have not learned and experienced. Since love is not a thing, it is not lost when given. You can offer your love completely to hundreds of people and still retain the same love you had originally. It... Continue reading

Rule 1: Let's fill our minds with thoughts of peace, courage, health, and hope, for "our life is what our thoughts make it." Rule 2: Let's never try to get even with our enemies, because if we do we will hurt ourselves far more than we hurt them. Let's do as General Eisenhower does: let's never waste a minute thinking about people we don't like.... Continue reading

Until you make peace with yourself and your current condition, you’re powerless to change. Until you say yes to what your life experience is right now, you’ll continually find yourself in a state of conflict, wanting things to be different. How can you be in harmony if you’re at war within, hurting yourself with your thoughts and behaviors? How can you effect lasting change in... Continue reading

You never again have to believe that circumstances outside of you control your life. You never again have to believe that it is wrong to want. You never again have to believe that some great power outside yourself is pulling the strings, or that anyone or anything other than you is in control. You never again have to be afraid of "them" or "it," no... Continue reading

Remembering Louise Hay, One Positive Thought at a Time When I heard the news it made me think back to the days when her positive, self-loving, you-can-do-it, life-changing philopshy hit the new age scene in the eighties. Back then, we believed we could make wishes that would come true. We believed we could change our beliefs and thoughts and, as a result, our life experience.... Continue reading

Years after college my beloved physics professor, Sheridan Simon, told me that the bane of his existence was delivering a simply beautiful lecture on the physics of black holes or quantum mechanics, then opening the floor to questions knowing he had done some of his best work, only to have the student in the second row raise his hand and ask, "Will this be on...

In over a dozen years as a stress consultant, one of the most pervasive and destructive mental tendencies I've seen is that of focusing on what we want instead of what we have. It doesn't seem to make any difference how much we have; we just keep expanding our list of desires, which guarantees we will remain dissatisfied. The mind-set that says "I'll be happy...

"You don’t owe your family affection if they are being abusive and treating you poorly. I know that it’s so difficult not to feel guilty for holding back that love. I know that there are people who will tell you that you should just grin and bear it because they’re family. People who will shame you for the way you feel. People who will try... Continue reading

The idea of watching your thoughts might sound odd at first, but you will soon see that this is a very accurate description of a very useful tool. And once you get the hang of watching your thoughts, it will become one of the most powerful tools available to you. This technique has been around for as long as people have been meditating. Watching your... Continue reading

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned... Continue reading

Dear Trisha, I've got something to say to you, and I hope you will listen with an open heart. Don't be so worried about what everybody else thinks of you, and don't think your happiness depends on someone else. I want you to just trust yourself. Trust that if you take care of yourself on the inside, follow your instincts, and let yourself evolve naturally,... Continue reading

You've heard it many times, so often in fact that it has become a cliché: Live in the present. The now is all there is. Forget about the past; it's over. Don't worry about the future; there is only today. While these are familiar refrains, the truth is that living in the now is an elusive activity for virtually everyone. It may be easy to...

About ninety per cent of the things in our lives are right and about ten percent are wrong. If we want to be happy, all we have to do is to concentrate on the ninety per cent that are right and ignore the ten per cent that are wrong. If we want to be worried and bitter and have stomach ulcers, all we have to... Continue reading

We use the word "love" but we have no more understanding of love than we do of anger or fear or jealousy or even joy, because we have seldom investigated what that state of mind is. What are the feelings we so quickly label as love? For many what is called love is not lovely at all but is a tangle of needs and desires,... Continue reading

Much has been said about "living in the moment." Virtually every spiritual teacher throughout history has suggested this solution. In fact, this may be one of the oldest and wisest pieces of advice for living a happier life. Yet, despite all the emphasis on this advice, very few people seem able to implement this critical principle in their daily lives. I believe this seemingly simple... Continue reading

We need to take time to work because it is the price of success. We need to take time to think because it is the source of power and the key to making good decisions. We need to take time to play because it is the secret of youth, and a life of all work does make a person dull. We need to take time... Continue reading

Do you ever feel that life is just one long routine day after another? You wake up, take a shower, brush your teeth, get dressed, head off to work, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Well, if one more day of the "same ol' stuff" makes you feel cranky, it might be time for a spontaneity break. Now I know that the idea of scheduling... Continue reading
