Walking a Day in a Womans Moccassins

Describe your life if you were forced to spend a day in another's mind/body/spirit. Who knows...maybe that's why the Native Americans were infamous for the saying, walk a mile in another man's moccassins. Today, we explore the idea of spending a day in another's shoes (or skin). Looking beyond ourselves, we begin to look into, behind, and through our neighbor's lenses. Come with me as I walk a day in another wo-man's moccassins.

How to Control Your Life


The self-help movement teaches that we are the "Captains of our ship". Simply believe and [then] achieve! -- goes the mantra.

The amazing thing is that The Creator also gifted humans with the power of choice -- aka, Free Will -- to exercise autonomy of choice management of this gift of life.

Ya Gotta Hold On

Lady hanging in a treeListening to one of my favorite music groups gave me inspiration for this week's radiocast.  Alabama Shakes features a powerful female vocalist that belts out the mantra that is the new national anthem for we students of personal success and development. Through it all -- through thick and thin -- we just gotta hold on! No special potions or spells..no magic pills..just a redundant emphasis upon the principle and perseverance to HOLD ON!

It Just ain’t all that Serious

If you're anything like me, you sometimes take yourself TOO SERIOUSLY! I got to thinking about this topic because I happened to glance at myself in the mirror.

And what did I see? A worrisome and over-exaggerated version of a Mini Me. That got me to thinking...'Am I takin myself too seriously?' My alter ego chimed in a definitive: Yes!

Its Spring Break Time Again

College students, educators, parents, and K-12 students are fixin to enjoy Spring Break Week! The practice began shortly after WWII -- mirroring the Easter traditional commemoration.Spring Break has benefits for non-educational vocations as well. The need for all human beings to slow down, rest, and to take a break.

If many of us can't simply take off from work for a week, then maybe we can use our imaginations to reap some of that Spring Break Mojo...

The Grieving of My Job Loss

Job-Loss.pngI lost my job...almost a year ago. Slowly, I've regained my footing. But WOW! it was dang tough.

One of the thing that I did was to record my thoughts the next day after my termination.

My emotions felt like a kick in the gut!@%$&
