Debuting The Victim

Do you know what I mean when I say,” this persona: The Victim is the all-time favorite of most people?” I mean, it is the most popular, and almost acceptable in our culture.  You can hear the tone and chatter of the victim in public places.   Some people think of a victim as the recipient of brutality or attack, thus they don’t recognize the typical subtleties of their own victim attitude and speak.

Does Slow And Steady REALLY Win The Race?

Andrea and Stacey running Biltmore Marathon

As you may know, I completed my 5th marathon right around this time last year. (That’s a picture of me and a friend running it.) But what you may not know is what got me into running marathons in the first place.

Here’s the straight self-love truth..

Just like giving up any negative toxic habit – like biting your finger nails, smoking, or eating junk food – you can CHOOSE to not be a negative self-talker.

Swing Hard (Just in Case You Hit It)

Swing Hard

In July of 1992, the summer between my senior year in high school and my freshman year at Stanford, I got invited to play in the U.S. Junior National Baseball Championship tournament in Boise, Idaho. It was a pretty big deal. Some of the top high school players in the country were there, including a 16-year-old shortstop from Miami named Alex Rodriguez. So there we were, a group of pretty talented and confident (i.e., cocky) high school baseball players, but beneath the outward cockiness was a deep sense of insecurity, especially being around other players of this caliber.

10 Signs Fear Is Running Your Life (And How To Get Back On Track)


Most people in our culture are riddled with fear, and it’s running the show in our lives, taking the wheel in most of our decision-making. But the funny thing is, we don’t even know it. This is partly because, in our culture, we tend to dress up “fear” in the more socially acceptable clothes of “stress.” And stress—well, hell—stress is practically a badge of success in our culture!

Staying Present And Engaged: Steering Yourself Back To The Moment


Recently, I received an invitation to a birthday party. The invite had the tagline: “Please don’t bring presents. Your presence is a gift.” Sounds so easy doesn’t it? Just show up and be present. I wish it could be that easy. As human beings, we possess a unique and very powerful ability to focus our attention on the present moment and simply be with whatever is before us—a rose, a loved one, a business problem. We’ve all had the experience of getting absorbed when our attention is so focused, so singular that we forget ourselves. The separate self is subsumed in the object of our attention. However, the brilliant human mind also has the ability to focus on events, people, concerns, etc. that are not right in front of us in the moment. We get pulled into the past or future. This ability is essential for planning the future or sorting through the past to share, celebrate, compare, reminisce, evaluate, understand, and many other cognitive functions including learning from the past to avoid making the same mistakes.

How You Spend Your DAYS Is How You Spend Your LIFE?

How You Spend Your Days
"How we spend our days is how we spend our lives."
~Annie Dillard

It's so true, isn't it? The moments turn into days, the days into weeks, the weeks into months, the months into years. So it goes.

Our daily life is our real life. Finding the everyday sacred is the key to creating a life you love.

10 Ways To Create Shining Karma!


Karma. You think, speak or do something and you experience the effects of it at some point in the future. Right now you are living the effects of things you've done in the past. 

Pretty simple at its core.

Wildly complex if you think about it.

How To Befriend Your Dragon

How to Befriend Your Dragon, Monica Wilcox
I Imagined Her Well

The way her blubbered skin stretched over a fluid spine. How her back had been blackened by basement dust and grim assumptions. Evanescent scales caught the light of my laptop, reflecting the full spectrum of the rainbow before they settled back to a chartreuse. Her bulk was overwhelming, blue whale overwhelming, Hoover Dam overwhelming. Like a disposable camera, my eyes had to chunk her into segments.
