“Nothing in the universe can stop you from letting go and starting over.” – Guy Finley

My new book, Letting Go: 25 True Stories of Peace, Hope and Surrender, is now available exclusively from Amazon.

The purpose of the project was to create a collaborative book about the life-changing gift that letting go offers

Letting go is something that many of us struggle with, which makes it difficult, if not impossible, to live fully in the present.

When our thoughts are constantly going to a time or place somewhere in the past, it’s hard to see the moment that’s in front of us right now. The project also helped me address the pain I was still feeling after the unexpected death of brother in October, 2011. Continue Reading This Post »

A sense of purpose – You don’t have to be successful to have a meaningful life, but you will feel more fulfilled if you’re making a difference in the world. It could be a goal you’re working toward, a new garden that you’re planting, or a new career you’re chasing—if it gives you a sense of purpose, then take a moment to actively appreciate it.

A Guide for Setting Boundaries for Healthy Relationships

“Trust is to human relationships what faith is to gospel living. It is the beginning place, the foundation upon which more can be built. Where trust is, love can flourish.” – Barbara Smith

Communication

The most effective cornerstone in any relationship with a partner, friend, employer, or client is communicating.

• You can’t rely on your negative reactions to enforce better behaviors in the future, nor can you beat around the bush about what you need in the relationship.

• When you are frustrated or upset, try to address both the hurt that your partner has caused you and the underlying problem. Focus on why it hurt you and what needs to change.

• Determine your own boundaries and needs in a relationship and communicate them explicitly. Continue Reading This Post »
