Steps to True Happiness

Under the umbrellas of intention and authenticity lie core values we can foster which will help lead us to, and maintain, the ultimate state of happiness – to be happy with yourself.

How to Avoid a Mid-Life Crisis: Set Your OWN Expectations

We’ve only got one shot at this thing called life. And yet, all too many of us tend to give it away to living other people’s expectations. All too often, young people spend the first two decades of their lives absorbing their world’s expectations for them – figuring out what their parents and communities think they should be doing. They internalize those dreams, those visions, those goals. And then, they spend the next several decades trying to fulfill others’ expectations of what their lives should be like. And then, sometime on the approach to middle age, they become surprised that… Read more.

How You Can Start Living Authentically

Over the course of my life I have been exploring parenting and other relationships and have found one thing to be of utmost importance, authenticity. What I mean by this is living what you think and believe. In order to do this you have to know what that is, and how it looks to you. There are two exercises which can help every person figure this out. The first is to write the eulogy you would like given about you, then live your life accordingly. The second is to write down your top ten values. Honesty, for instance. Then examine… Read more.

Lean into it and let yourself be raw – in that rawness you will stretch your boundaries and live more deeply than… Read more.

Tell the Truth, Even When It’s Scary

I have learned nothing more deeply satisfying or life-affirming than this: The more we can discover what is true with us, the more open become the walls that constrict our souls. And when we do so out loud with a trusted friend or partner, the more permeable become the walls that separate us from each other, and the more connected we become, Soul to Soul. Lesson 1: Discover new Truth. Where we are keeping secrets from ourselves—false personalities we developed in childhood, traumas we “forgot,” truths about us we dare not think—we must work hard to not face them. Hiding… Read more.

The Art of Authenticity

The words I would like to leave to humanity are walk in your own authenticity. While this may sound elementary, as I have walked through several phases of my journey, I realized I lost valuable time not being completely authentic. I am aware the growing process had a vast impact upon the way I viewed and perceived myself. However, decisions I made based on the environment, and peers caused me to present a facade which was not my character nor my stature. Authenticity to me is the ability to reach within myself and expose even to myself, my triumphs and… Read more.

Higher Help for Persistent Problems

And while the answer to this woeful question should rescue us from similar future sticky situations, it rarely works out that way. This is very important to admit to ourselves. The truth is we keep falling into the same old snares. Why? There is an authentic answer to this question that may surprise you. The reason we haven’t as yet realized… Read more.

Finding Gold

In my many years working as a counselor and pursuing truth, there are two things I know for sure. First, we all need each other like the ocean needs the sand, and second, learning to be authentic is a task that requires truth, courage and commitment. So often in life people try to pursue a quick fix to their problems, and the truth is that any real problem worthy of being solved, does not and will not ever happen overnight. Finding gold takes time. Finding gold takes patience. Finding gold takes others. The gold I’m referring to is not the… Read more.

The Perfection of Imperfection

Yesterday I shared with you that I’m planning to write a blog each day for the next 30 days. That brought up all kinds of stuff for me. What if I don’t have enough material? What if I don’t have the time? What if they’re not perfect? I even received a blog comment yesterday from a man named Scott, who also had the same concern for his blog- “What if they’re not perfect?”. Can you imagine things in Nature asking that? Look at some of the most bizarre creatures and think, what if a pelican looked at an eagle and… Read more.
