COFFEE TALK: MASLOW’S HIERARCHY

Giving you something to sip on…Admit it, we all love our hustle porn. “Self-actualized people…live more in the real world of nature than in the man-made mass of concepts, abstractions, expectations, beliefs and stereotypes that most people confuse with the world.” Abraham Maslow

WELCOMING FALL AND THE DRIVING GLOVE

As someone with a fetish for high-performance cars…one thing I love are driving gloves. Yes, some may say they are a bit over the top but the feel of such supple, buttery leather against the steering wheel, providing just the right amount of “stickiness” as you take those tight turns… A serious car deserves theContinue reading “WELCOMING FALL AND THE DRIVING GLOVE”

MORNING LOVE: THE STOIC LIFE

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”

THE ART OF COMPROMISE…OR NOT?

I recently read the Chris Voss book, ” Never Split the Difference.” It has many brilliant points on the subject of negotiating but calls out that compromise is a losing proposition. Thinking about it more deeply, I would agree. Compromise is Zero Sum. We are taught to believe that compromise is a good thing. TheContinue reading “THE ART OF COMPROMISE…OR NOT?”

MORNING LOVE: A KEY TO LIFE

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.

MONDAY LOVE: PASSION & PURPOSE

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”

TUESDAY LOVE: ITS ABOUT ME

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”

The “Draw” of Seduction

That word. Seduction.  The sound of it rolling off our tongues is provocative.  In fact,  its etymology dates back to the 16th century “seducere” – to draw aside.   drawing you into a journey, a path to discovery.     Our senses are the compass.   One that is intimately shared to those who are daring in confidenceContinue reading “The “Draw” of Seduction”

I’m Kinky, Therefore I am. The Cogito of Kink.

I love nothing more than to wax philosophical about the intellect of kink.  Ok, perhaps there are a few things but that is for another post. 😉 We can thank the French philosopher Rene Descartes for sparking the discussion for proof of life and to a further extent, the practice of logical thought.  While thisContinue reading “I’m Kinky, Therefore I am. The Cogito of Kink.”
