- “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?

When 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”
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.

Well it’s about time I face facts and give into the “real world” once again.

How much weight do words have? Would we become noticeably heavier standing on a scale while someone lobbed the “unspeakable” at us? Continue reading ““It’s My Right!” – Culpable, Onus, and Judgement – Our Search For Exoneration of Self”
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”
Most are familiar with the Henry Ford quote;
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.”
If you haven’t seen it before I recommend not blowing past it, take a second to reflect on the wisdom behind it.
It’s equally empowering and frightening but can be a source of clarity when we find ourselves worrying about what other people think about us. Continue reading “Don’t Believe The Hype – Where We’ve Been Doesn’t Have To Restrict How Far We Go”
