Take Emotional Risks

 

Open your heart and arms to new people and experiences. While it might seem safer to remain curled up in your cocoon, it is so much more richly rewarding to reach beyond your comfort zone. Recall that each person you now know and love was once a stranger to you. Can you imagine your life without them? Was it worth the risk to take that leap of faith to welcome them in?

    I will reach out to an intriguingly endearing spirit and thus open the possibility of further enriching my own life.

    Tony:
    How wonderful that you are extending in courage (comes from the French word couer, which means heart) to that ‘intriguingly endearing spirit’ whoever that is. Enjoy the enrichment:)

Hurt People Hurt People?
Lately, I have been pondering this conundrum: Why do people make violence acceptable? I see so many photos and videos of people hurting animals and people, images of abuse that whoever shot the films somehow think is cool. I understand why folks post them so that someone can identify the perpet

Make Your Life Spectacular
    A few days have passed since the world heard the devastating news that someone who entered their lives and lodged in their hearts (even if they never met face to face), had succumbed to the depression that had followed him for much of his life. When Robin Williams died, so too di

When Lives Touch
    I have been pensive lately for many reasons. The first is that I am still in relatively new life renewal mode. Two months ago, I was lying in a hospital bed with all manner of accutrement attached to my arms; beeping and chirping away. A pin hole was poked into my right wris
