  • Reclaim your worth

    Reclaim your worth

    Peace is most ravaged when we convince ourselves that we were treated badly by others, or by someone we trusted, because we weren’t good enough for them. A betrayal of trust, no matter how noble the person, reflects cowardice on their part. We only betray the trust that others place in us when we feel […]

  • Do you practice self-serving justice?

    Do you practice self-serving justice?

    The matter of justice doesn’t only apply to matters of criminal behaviour or social conduct, but it’s especially true for how we conduct ourselves within our family units. It’s the injustices that we experience within our families that result in the misconduct that we express in our lives. That injustice doesn’t always feel like a […]

  • Be true about seeking truth

    Be true about seeking truth

    If you’re sincere about seeking the truth, you won’t be distracted by the source or tone through which it arrives. The truth is only harsh if you’re not willing to accept it. The harshness enters when we need to hear something more palatable or pleasant about ourselves because we need the validation that says that […]

  • Your perspective is your choice

    Your perspective is your choice

    Perspective is a choice, not an inheritance. Improve your awareness of why you believe what you believe, and it will be possible to consciously choose what resonates with your personal value system, and discarding what doesn’t. When we lose sight of why we hold the perspectives that we do, and those perspectives create a conflict […]

  • Yearning for a simple life

    Yearning for a simple life

    Life is simple, but it’s not easy. It becomes complicated when we look for the easy way out. Doing the right thing is often complicated by our concern for the consequences with those around us. The greater our emphasis on those consequences, the more complicated life becomes because we have that much more to consider […]

  • The silent lie

    The silent lie

    Dishonesty isn’t always a lie. It’s often an unspoken truth. In fact, unspoken truths are probably the source of more dishonesty than outright lies. We remain silent when we feel threatened by the revelation of the truth. That threat is not always about exposure of who we are. Sometimes, it’s because we don’t want to […]

  • A Beautiful Mess

    A Beautiful Mess

    The last year has been a beautiful mess. It has been a year of pushing boundaries and testing long-held truths. People, relationships, skills, passions, and even hobbies all came under close scrutiny as I peeled away the layers of assumptions that coated them over the years to test whether they still served me well, or at all.

  • Honest Lies

    Honest Lies

    Dishonesty is the worst form of disrespect. It’s a show of disrespect to yourself before it says anything about the value you place on others. Far too often we convince ourselves of the need for the lesser of two evils to justify the dishonesty, but in the process we set in motion a sequence of […]
