Instead of Yelling, Do This

 “Stop Yelling At Me!” is what I heard at first. It repeated. “Stop Yelling At Me!!” It almost sounded like a little kid defending itself. Perhaps that is more accurate than I realized at the time.

When It’s Dark Inside

Last week I wrote on laughter. This week’s topic is totally different. Funny how things can change so quickly and deeply. Not funny haha like that post on laughing – but funny as in strange and unexpected. I want to tell you about Continue reading “When It’s Dark Inside”

There are many things we see or hear that are cool, or we find deep at the time that we often forget. It usually takes us many times going over things to really learn or grasp them.

In my last two posts I talked about time and here I am doing it again. That was not the plan. Nevertheless it is my subject again.

In the midst of that Continue reading “STOP TRYING SO HARD – RELAX AND BREATHE”
