You Are a Genius

By |June 14th, 2015|

Mr. Rogers was right. You are special. You are a genius at something. Don’t argue! It’s true. We all have heard this before, and can easily write it off as something that sounds nice but doesn’t really mean much. We talk ourselves out of it every time we feel that little spark of genius. “I am good at baking.” Eh, somebody in France is better. “Hey, I can take really nice photographs!” But, well, what […]

Your Space, Your Place

Some of you know that I teach self-defense classes. I started learning kung fu when in my late 40s, and found that it helped me so much with defining my place in the world (both physically and mentally).

The years of training, mistakes, disappointments, or abuse can take their toll on how we see ourselves in the world.

The dictionary defines worthy as “having adequate or great merit, character, or value,” and again, “of commendable […]

Faithful Fears

By |May 25th, 2015|

To the question “What are you afraid of?” lots of common responses pop into our minds.  Heights. Snakes. Spiders. Confined spaces.  Those fears are easy to define, and easy to write off as things we can avoid to keep that fear at bay.  Just don’t climb mountains, or live where there are snakes, and get a pest control service, and, yeah, I don’t do elevators or spelunking.  Ok.  But how about that next set of […]
