One of the amazing things we have been given as humans is the unquenchable desire to have dreams of a better life. Think of it: We can look deep within our hearts and dream of a better situation for ourselves and our families; dream of better financial lives and better emotional or physical lives; and certainly dream of better spiritual lives. But what makes this... Continue reading

“There comes a time when you have to stand up and say: This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think, feel the way I feel, love the way I love! I am a whole complex package. Take me… or leave me. Accept me – or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of... Continue reading

Find someone who truly loves you. Someone who never belittles you. Even in the heat of an argument. Someone who is gentle with you, but does not treat you like you are fragile. Someone who knows what you are capable of, and celebrates those pieces of you. Not someone who is intimidated by your strength. Someone who can call you out for being a brat,... Continue reading

“So you want to be happy? Then stop letting the smallest things ruin your whole entire day. If you’re feeling stressed, ask yourself: Will this matter in a year from now? If yes, then do something about it. If no, then let it go. If you’re bored with your daily routine, do something unexpected, be spontaneous. Never complain about being alone when surrounded by people... Continue reading

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down... Continue reading

There was a man who wanted to transcend his suffering so he went to a Buddhist temple to find a Master to help him. He went to the Master and asked, "Master, if I meditate for four hours a day, how long will it take me to transcend?" The Master looked at him and said, "If you meditate four hours a day, perhaps you will... Continue reading

Moving on and getting over someone is one of the hardest things you have to do in life. Especially if it’s with someone you saw your future with.So you have to move on the right way. Get your closure from them and tell them everything you ever wanted to tell them, how much you love them, how much you hate them, etc. So you will... Continue reading

I hope that someday you find someone that gives you butterflies the moment you meet them. And that the first time you touch, it feels like electricity is running through your body. I hope that when you’re with them, you never want to leave. I hope you are the first and last thing they think about every day. I hope you play it cool in... Continue reading

I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what degrades me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to... Continue reading

You are not just the size of your bank account, the neighborhood you live in, or the type of work that you do. You are, just like everyone else, an almost inconceivably complicated mix of abilities and limitations. A new kind of New Year’s resolution is becoming increasingly popular. Instead of dwelling on something they think is wrong with them and resolving to improve, a... Continue reading

Not everyone is healthy enough to have a front row seat in our lives. There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a distance. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you let go of or at least minimize your time with draining, negative, incompatible, not-going-anywhere relationships. Observe the relationships around you. Pay attention. Which ones lift and which ones... Continue reading

Let this coming year be better than all the others. Vow to do some of the things you have always wanted to do but could not find the time. Call up a forgotten friend. Drop an old grudge, and replace it with some pleasant memories. Vow not to make a promise you do not think you can keep. Walk tall, and smile more. You will... Continue reading

Several times lately, I've gotten messages from readers or Facebook "fans" advising me that speaking out about gay rights or Islamic tolerance isn't a good idea when I'm "putting myself out there trying to sell a book." I admit to being rendered completely speechless by these messages. "If I let selling a book stand in the way of voicing my opinion on things that matter... Continue reading

This goes out to all of the people who have been broken but have been strong enough to let go. For the people who have hurt so badly that they felt they could never love again, but kept their head up. For the people that wish loneliness wasn’t a part of them, but put up with it anyhow. For the people that are okay with... Continue reading

I'll be the first to admit that in our society we often tend to go overboard with our gift-giving, especially during the Christmas holidays. Many people use Christmas as an opportunity to try to compensate for wrongs or neglect that has happened over the course of the year, and many people try to compensate for their own low sense of self-worth by spending inordinate amounts...

There is a big difference between giving up and letting go. Giving up means selling yourself short. It means allowing fear and struggle to limit your opportunities and keep you stuck. Letting go means freeing yourself from something that is no longer serving you. Giving up reduces your life. Letting go expands it. Giving up is imprisoning. Letting go is liberation. Giving up is self-defeat.... Continue reading

Life is like a journey on a train with its stations, with changes of routes and with accidents! At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel on our side. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone. As time goes by, other people will board the... Continue reading

Every year people think about how to have the perfect Christmas, and of course there's no such thing. What's a perfect Christmas? Is it really necessary to build a tree out of 362 cream puffs? Most of us have one or two things that make us feel Christmas is perfect, but we may not even have time to ask ourselves what they are. For me,... Continue reading

“Dare to Be When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully. When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light. When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it. When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway. When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back. When there seems to be no hope, dare... Continue reading

How can we best keep Christmas? How can we best defeat the little bit of Scrooge in all of us and experience the glory of the Great Day? By sinking the shafts of our spirits deep beneath the sparkling tinsel of the surface of Christmas and renewing within us the radiance of the inner meaning of the season. By following the Star on an inward... Continue reading

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let us down, probably will. You’ll have your heart broken and you’ll break others’ hearts. You’ll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you’ll cry because time is flying by. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely, and love...

Stop breaking your own heart by trying to make a relationship work that clearly isn’t meant to work. You can’t force someone to care about you. You can’t force someone to be loyal. You can’t force someone to be the person you need them to be. Sometimes the person you want most is the person you’re best without. You got to understand some things are... Continue reading

I hope you find someone that loves you when you wake up in the morning. And I hope that person stops you from running to the bathroom to fix yourself before they can even get a peek at you. I hope they tell you how beautiful you are, not just in the way you look but in the way you hold their hands and laugh... Continue reading

There is a wonderful Hasidic parable about the power of gratitude to change the course of our destiny in a heartbeat, the speed, I imagine, it takes for a "thank you" to reach Heaven's ears. Once times were tough. Two men--both poor farmers--were walking down a country lane and met their Rabbi. "How is it for you?" the Rabbi asked the first man. "Lousy," he... Continue reading

You can change the world, if you care about others and do small things. You can do this by appreciating, thanking, encouraging, supporting, and providing guidance for people in need. As Martin Luther King, Jr. rightly said, seek happiness for others. To receive, you need to give. When you give without strings attached, you attract more. You attract more friends and well-wishers. You experience happiness... Continue reading
