Decisions

The tenor of our lives is shaped by the many decisions we make every day. And it is through those decisions that our lives are shaped. Some decisions are more important than others, but each decision contributes to whether your life goes stunningly or poorly.

The Storm

Many children's lives are like being in the middle of an awful storm. Making things worse, they are powerless in the face of events that envelop and control them.

Your Inner Child

You fear that if you make yourself vulnerable you might be rejected. Why do you feel this way? Where does that come from? After all, that is not who you really are. When you are "yourself" you don't act that way. The simple answer is that you learned this behavior early in life.

Spirituality and Life

I wrote a few weeks ago that maybe I could shorten these pieces when I figured out which words were God’s and which one’s were mine.

Understanding Life

When you read a novel, you don’t want to know the plot before you finish it. That works for novels, but it’s not a very good formula for life. But that’s what a lot of us end up doing. We go from problem to problem, without any real grasp of the bigger picture. If you want to make your life better and easier, it helps to understand what’s really going on, and surprisingly few people do.
