Who’s Pushing Your Buttons?

If someone or something pushes your buttons – what happens next?

Between stimulus and response there is a space.
In that space is our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

— Viktor E. Frankl

Some folks, especially those closest to us, know exactly what they can do to get us to react – they know just which buttons will push us over the edge.  In situations like that, do you often snap?  If so, your Continue reading » Who’s Pushing Your Buttons?

Habit is necessary; it is the habit of having habits, of turning a trail into a rut, that must be incessantly fought against if one is to remain alive.

— Edith Wharton

I am constantly surprised by what I have to relearn, over and over again.  Last weekend, was one of those surprising weekends.

Well, occasionally kids do kill their parents but usually that’s a sign of something being terribly, terribly wrong. Ya think??!! This trainer was the Continue reading » Six Ways to Increase Your Hope

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.

— Buddha

Peace.  It is something that we all seek.  And yet, it means different things to each of us, depending on where we are in life.

When we were kids, peace was booorrring.  It meant that there was nothing to do.  Why would anyone want peace?  Give me excitement!

As we got older, peace came to signify the plaintive query spoken by Rodney King, “Can’t we all get along?”  And it was a movement aimed at ending war – for all time – back when we thought that if we just marched enough, protested enough, etc., we could force “the man” to quit fighting wars.  Perhaps, we were just a bit naïve.

Now, at “our age”, peace represents our ability to Continue reading » Peace
