If we don't watch the store who will?

I wish you peace of mind

“The punishment of every disordered mind is its own disorder.”

Don't give up!

I ask not for a lighter burden, but for broader shoulders.

The other day I made a pitch for allowing tranquility into our lives -- at least for a little bit whenever we can. In a meeting I had yesterday morning with a new friend from another nation I again realized how elusive tranquility can be…

I love dancing in the rain, don't you?

Ann Marie Aguilar

I sometimes don’t understand why I run into so many unhappy people. I am beginning to wonder if they just need to agonize just so people will pay attention to them. Years ago I attended a seminar where there was substantial discussion…

Stick with the doers and avoid the never willers

“No misfortune is so bad that whining about it won’t make it worse”

It was a little depressing yesterday as I could not avoid hearing from some of the “Never Happy” folks. I really don’t mind objective observations, if we don’t see what is wrong we will never fix it. What gets me is those…
