See? I didn’t forget about you…Thank you for being so patient.
Sharing some morning love with you…
Cheers to you and the relationships in your life that motivate, and give you momentum. Let us remember the generations before us who built the infrastructure for our cities, so we could enjoy not only flexibility and convenience, but that it would encourage further innovation. Even if you are not working at what you love,Continue reading “MORNING LOVE: LABOR DAY WISHES”
Live in stoicism. We are human, perfectly imperfect, finding our own way, which sometimes is a longer journey. Our battles are own. We decide how circumstances will affect us. The power we hold is nobody’s to take away. As human beings, we may feel defeated at times, we almost thrive in the complex but simplicityContinue reading “MORNING LOVE: THE STOIC LIFE”
We can’t help ourselves. What is familiar, what is comfortable determines much of how we live our lives, as well as the relationships we keep. This can sometimes be to our detriment. Shenpa is the feeling of being “stuck.” The emotional grab when we feel our back is against the wall. The familiarity of ourContinue reading “MORNING LOVE: SEEKING COMFORT”
Sending a little morning love your way because we all could use a little of it.
I would like to believe I can “think” my way into anything. The truth is that life and all of its riches, literally and figuratively, is much grittier than that. Humility, patience and compassion. The keys to a life well lived. Easy to forget, and takes lifelong practice.
“Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you. Never excuse yourself. Never pity yourself. Be a hard master to yourself-and be lenient to everybody else.” Henry Ward Beecher When we work to get our bodies fit, we challenge ourselves because the results are worth it. We understand the resiliency ofContinue reading “MORNING LOVE: RESILIENCE”
Another hump day, a few notes of inspiration to get your day started.
“Anyone who is observant, who discovers the person they have always dreamed of, knows that sexual energy comes into play before sex even takes place. The greatest pleasure isn’t sex, but the passion with which it is practiced. When the passion is intense, then sex joins in to complete the dance, but it is neverContinue reading “MONDAY MORNING LOVE: REDUX”
I was listening to a Lex Fridman podcast last night. In his long-form chat with neuroscientist Andrew Huberman, I felt so inspired. Listen more here… As I talked about yesterday, we are all on our own journey of self-discovery. However it is important to realize that we all have the capacity for feelings, behaviors andContinue reading “THE COURAGE OF IF”
I hope you enjoy my post this morning. I did it at sunrise. My favorite time of day. Even if I don’t get a chance to witness it, the early morning, early riser in me recognizes and appreciates that it is a new opportunity to create. A new opportunity for the capacity that is withinContinue reading “MORNING LOVE: SUNSHINE”
People seem to have a love/hate relationship with stress. I think in some ways, being stressed means they are more important, have more responsibilities, and that the person who is not anxious or worried has it easy or is just sailing through life. I hardly believe that it is only people with great responsibility andContinue reading “MONDAY LOVE: PASSION & PURPOSE”
Our energies are often focused on communication with others and listening, that we forget the most important person: ourselves. Sending a little Tuesday love your way via audio…or you can read on… Why do we sometimes let the ugliest parts of ourselves – , selfishness, insecurities take center stage through judgement and criticism of others?Continue reading “TUESDAY LOVE: ITS ABOUT ME”
My best friend told me I should read the book, “The Obstacle is the Way.” I chose the audio version and LOVED it. The life I live is chock full of adversity and obstacles but over the past couple of years, I have chosen to think differently about it. Stress doesn’t have to be stressful.Continue reading “Amor Fati”
