Pride is a funny thing. We speak of it in such a shallow and narrow form – we must “swallow our pride”, “leave our pride at the door”, “push it to the side” I think like most words it has been misconstrued, bent up, and changed for the worst! Change your dictionary, change your life This word needs a different meaning! Pride: it’s a sin (the most deadly), a group of lions (My Personal Favorite), a family, a nation, a tribe, a colt, a gang, pleasure, ours, individual, excessive, corporation, something we share, something we fight for, a virtue, useful, brave, something we desperately hang on to, only truly owning …

Always Say Goodbye

In a world as unpredictable as ours we must always say goodbye. We must say it with love and compassion. We must do our best to never go to bed angry. The reality is we never know whats going to happen next. We might never see them again, so we must try our best to allow the final moments before parting to be pure love with no anger or resentment. Life is too short to hold a grudge. To not forgive. To not love- loving them without labels, it’s nothing you do for another person, it’s who you are, what you breathe, what you give off, so that your words …

When Was The Last Time You Did Nothing?

When was the last time you unplugged and gave no focus or energy to anything but yourself? There is too much that beckons us. Without our even knowing it, takes us by surprise. Between email, text message, Twitter, Facebook, blogging, bills, Youtube, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, pinterest, news, magazines, television, Tivo, phone calls (received and made), old school snail mail, DVR, things you have to do, things you should do, and the list goes on. These things have begun to define us. Instead of using them to our advantage we don’t know a life without them. They no longer enhance life, they are the only option. Give yourself the gift …

It’s The Little Things

“God is in the details” – Mies van der Rohe This is what I live by. Not what I always practice but what I am constantly reminded of. How special the little things are, the things you cant count, like when someone is thinking about you and calls to check in on you. Like flowers for no reason other than for giving. Flowers falling from trees – mid flight. The unexpected. Finger foods and taster menus. Like the moments between a first kiss. Like your monday that was shockingly amazing. The colors of an inner city sunset Sunsets. Unexpected good – all good! Like getting lost and discovering something beautiful. …
