We Are Not The Names They Called Us: How To Get Your Glow Back


Do we come of age in a singular moment or is it a gathering progression? I’m not talking about the ceremonious physical coming of age that entitles one to a plastic coated card. I’m referring to the life rendering psychological event; that moment your candy coated, rainbow sparkled life gets blown up by a bazooka named Hard Reality. We climb to the glorious peak of our youth only to be pushed over the cliff; plummeting at shocking speed into the pits of adulthood.

Where Defensive Driving Meets The School Of Life


I got a speeding ticket.

No, it's not the first time.

I often leave the house just a minute or two late, and by the time I get to the car it's about three or four.  Ugh.

Stop Hiding & Start Teaching - NOW!



Look at your world: What do you complain about? What ties your heart in a knot? What makes you angry, livid, incensed? What bows you in resignation and sends you to watch reruns of I Love Lucy(I date myself. Fill in your favorite numb-out comfort.)

3 Ways To Check Back Into Your Life

3 Ways to Check Back Into Your Life


Sometimes I just check out of things. And I don’t only mean hotels.

Nope; I mean life. Occasionally I notice this right away – I’ll find myself coming back into a task or conversation like I’ve just been startled awake during a nap. Other times, this process takes longer – it could be hours, days, weeks, months or even (in the past) years.

Owning My Reflection

See this?
See my reflection full of curves and soft places that serve to comfort my child and turn on my husband even when I can’t see past the cellulite and society’s ideals?

There's No Right Track

There's No Right Track

I was talking to a mentor of mine a few weeks ago and I asked him, “Do you think I’m on the right track?”  He said to me, “Mike, the issue isn’t whether or not you’re on the ‘right’ track; it’s that you think there’s a ‘right’ track to begin with.”

I Once Was A Prostitute And I'll Bet You've Been One Too

No this post won't be about sex, but it will be about my time as a prostitute and how I climbed out of that hole and found the place I am in now. 

While I certainly wouldn't accuse you, I would bet that a time or two in your life, you have dabbled in the p-word, too.

"You've got to pray for the gift of perseverance," she said from the kitchen as I listened in the bathroom.  "This is something I've had to do many times over the years," she confided.

"Is that where I got my inclination towards giving up from?", I asked myself silently.
