  • “Can you believe people actually get away with that?!”
  • “There needs to be better laws in place to protect us from this evil [entity] that seeks to rid us of our freedoms and take away our [noun]”
  • “How can anyone deal with such tyranny?”

Any of that sound familiar?

If you’ve spent anytime on social media, it should.  Continue reading “Victory Over Villainy – First Steps Toward Expelling The Victim Mentality”

A Sandcastle’s Perspective On Life – Before The Waves Call Us Home

massive sandcastle with walls

kids laughing next to a treeWhen was the last time you slowed down long enough to listen to the wind blow through the trees or appreciate the laughter of a child as if it was the first time you ever heard such a melodious sound?

Why is it so easy to get so caught up in all the other things?

It was early along on my recent path that a wonderful woman, whom I paid to dole out sage advice, told me that “no relationship lasts forever”. Continue reading “A Sandcastle’s Perspective On Life – Before The Waves Call Us Home”

The Trinity – All Good Things Come In Threes, Right?

This one might be a scary post for some as I finally stop tip-toeing around the belief structure that I was raised in and the majority of the world follows; Christianity.

Most who read this are likely to have had some interaction with the term “Trinity” as it relates to Christianity at some point in your life.

[and If the second didn’t happen for you, hopefully the first still did]

The “Love Contract” – Spotting Fear’s Hidden Asterisk

Ever heard the phrase Quid pro quo?

The original Latin translation was “this instead of that” but today when we hear this it’s more like; “I’m only doing this for you since you’re promising me something in return”.

It’s funny how both of those translations fit most people’s unspoken understanding of love when we think about it from the you-complete-me world view. Continue reading “The “Love Contract” – Spotting Fear’s Hidden Asterisk”
