Dangerously Close to Hopeless

One should… be able to see things as hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise.

— F. Scott Fitzgerald

September has been an overwhelming month.

It seems as if I just can’t take a single step forward.  It’s not that I’m standing still, it’s that even as I try to move forward, progress doesn’t occur.

I’m stuck in quicksand – there’s lots of movement, just not much progress.

Soon, it seems as if there’s no point in even trying anymore.  I feel dangerously Continue reading » Dangerously Close to Hopeless


It’s In There

Little things are indeed little, but to be faithful in little things is a great thing.

— Mother Teresa

Prego Spaghetti Sauce has a tag line – “It’s in there.”  In their commercials, various people would ask about this or that favorite ingredient that their mother had used when making her spaghetti sauce and the answer was always the same – It’s in there.  So, you don’t need to make sauce yourself, just use Prego, ’cuz it’s got everything you could possibly want.

When it comes to us, just like with Prego, we have Continue reading » It’s In There


Have Some Faith

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be.

— Douglas Adams

I am in awe of people who know who they are and what their life purpose is.  They march through each day with what looks like certainty and drive.  And, I am drawn to their certainty.  I envy it.  I know that some of it must be fake, but it looks real to me. Look at them.  I know why they have so much confidence – they look like they know what they’re doing!

They have faith and confidence in their ability to thrive.  One of the things that I find most interesting is Continue reading » Have Some Faith


A Work of Art

There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.

— Deepak Chopra

I was raised with the idea that for each and every one of us, there is a God-given purpose.  But, I’ve never felt that I figured out what God intends me to do.  Recently, I was reminded that while I can be very purpose-driven, maybe God’s a little more relaxed about it.  Maybe, the idea is for each of us to create the best version of us that we can be.  Maybe, the intent is that we become works of art.  Let me tell you the story of how I reached this conclusion… Continue reading » A Work of Art

Let Go and Let God (or your higher power)

We hope you enjoy the Oldies but Goodies we’ll be posting between now and 2011. Happy Holidays!

Control – Most of us like to think we have it. If you’ve been paying attention to the economy lately, you know just what an illusion control is. People who have worked hard their whole lives are in danger of losing their jobs, their savings, their retirement or all of the above. There is a deep feeling of anger in the general population. Why??? Because this latest downturn has affected all of us and we want to blame someone.
