Stirring the Pot

Sometimes it’s hard to be joyful when our thoughts are constantly focused on worrying. I learned an interesting approach to negative emotions years ago that is very helpful. When sad, make someone else feel happy. When hungry, feed someone else. It’s amazing how doing for others lifts you up and makes you feel better inside.Continue reading “Stirring the Pot”

Value’s Weight Varies

Liking or disliking anything [or anyone] is decided after weighing its’ value. It’s a process most often done consciously once we recognize our own personal gains or losses. This made me feel good; that made me angry; these cost too much; those are ugly. I can’t help but notice there seems to be some confusionContinue reading “Value’s Weight Varies”

Intention is on Trial Today

The trial in the Senate is a battle between Trump’s current and temporary future vs America’s constitutional and permanent future. Today will determine who will put themselves first over their country, or who will put country over themselves. What drives each and everyone of us to do anything is purely based on our intent. WhyContinue reading “Intention is on Trial Today”

Personal Interests

We all have personal preferences and individual goals that we each aim to achieve. However, the minute we arrive at work, our personal life should be set aside, and a mutual co-operative goal should be the focus. One that follows the business at hand. Politically speaking, any government servant is supposed to work for theContinue reading “Personal Interests”

Nostalgia

Introducing my very young children to Eddie Murphy’s comedy no doubt would have labelled me ‘a bad influence’ to many parents and scholars, so I never openly admitted I showed them clips from his stand-up routines. [Their favourite was “The Ice-cream Man Is Coming!”] Many would say I “polluted” their virgin ears. Which would haveContinue reading “Nostalgia”

A World Without Trump

The world will not be better off without Trump. The divisiveness is in need of a hero and only one man can be that hero – Donald J. Trump. The impeachment is likely to happen. Many will be relieved, and many will be upset. Immediately following, Mr. Trump should address the world from his ovalContinue reading “A World Without Trump”

Living In and Loving The Moment

Flipping through channels the other night I came across Garth Brooks wiping tears from his eyes. Being curious I had to tune in. His story captivated me. We assume successful people get lucky breaks. But no one arrives at the top of their game without first pursuing their dream. And Garth had a wonderful dream.Continue reading “Living In and Loving The Moment”

The Right Time and Place

I have not had the pleasure of seeing Lin Manuel Mirandes’ phenomenal play, Hamilton, but I did see a special on PBS, showing the making of Hamilton and was completely blown away. Great work is inspired. And I believe there is a divine hand leading ordinary people to do extraordinary things. And when these inspiredContinue reading “The Right Time and Place”

The Perfect Role

Seeing the trailer for Tom Hank’s new movie where he portrays Mr. Rogers, was truly nostalgic. To say, “I am looking forward to seeing it,” is an understatement. He is the perfect actor for this role. It made me wonder, if there was a movie about my life, who would play me? Perhaps the moreContinue reading “The Perfect Role”
