Building a Future

I'm Not Moving On, I'm Moving Forward.

I've grown to hate the phrase "move on." For me, I've always mostly connected it in terms of relationships.

Is There Still Good Out There For Me?

When we experience something good, it seems to be human nature to try and duplicate it.

“Last time it was wonderful. I’m going to do it the same way again!”

“God answered my prayer when I prayed that way. I’ve found the secret. I’m going to pray like that every time!”

“It was awesome the last time we did that. So we’ve planned to do it again!”

To The Distant Shore of Lake Grief

To The Distant Shore of Lake Grief 


#8… After observing a fisherman launch a second stick of dynamite into the lake, the game warden started his engine and shot across the water to make the arrest.  “He yelled on his bullhorn, “Stay where you are.  I am a conservation officer, and you are under arrest.” 

Pain vs. Suffering

Pain vs. Suffering

What do Tony Robbins and the Buddha have in common?

Well, among other things, they both teach us that while pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

Tony explains that suffering occurs when our story for how life should be doesn’t match our reality.


“Normal has disappeared. I don’t know what that is anymore,” Kathy said. 

Grief impacts our thoughts, emotions, physical health, and spiritual well-being. Simply put, it affects everything. Our normal is gone.

No wonder we feel crazy sometimes.
