Everything Will Be OK …

(Play vid HERE.) Everything will be OK … As soon as we’re OK with everything. I love this quote from Untethered Soul, a book I’ve read twice and am itching to read again. I cannot tell you how often I discuss resistance in my work with clients. Resistance to body. Resistance to job. Resistance to family/upbringing. … diagnosis. … divorce.... Read More

The Gift of Your Music

kat hurley, toastmasters, new york, feedback, best speaker
“Don’t die with your music still in you,” was one of the late Wayne Dyer’s favorite quotes. I’m almost certain he said it in every one of his lectures. It was a quote that troubled me for several years when I first heard it, back in early 2008: “But what’s my music?!” I knew I had gifts to give to... Read More

I found this great resource on mantras at Deepak’s home base. Here are some examples of mantras and what they mean. Some are more difficult to say than others.

For years I’d been searching for happiness outside myself: when I’d get the right job, when I’d finally settle in the perfect relationship, when I’d become completely debt-free.... Read More

No Sex of Humor For YOU

It’s a rare night when Elisa and I make the commitment to shut down early and have a QT [quality time] date night, just the two of us at home–no Netflix, no books, no distractions. We always promise to be better, but our schedules clash, we get busy and, and like many couples, time slips away. Just a week or... Read More

If Information Were Enough We’d All Have Six Pack Abs AND …

Millions of dollars … That ever elusive life balance … Happiness … All of it! How many times in your life have you said/thought: I know what I need to do, I just don’t do it? I’ve said it myself hundreds, if not thousands, of times. So what’s the dealio? Where are we falling short? What are the roadblocks? Sometimes... Read More
