Merry Christmas! Over the last few weeks, we've written about making it a great holiday season by adapting to the quick pace of all that’s going on around us. This includes understanding and finding real peace and thinking about how we really need to love in the holiday season. These are all important lessons for a variety of reasons. For starters, it’s great to refocus during the holidays to do things that are better for us. And by doing so, we find joy and happiness in our relationships and our day-to-day life — regardless of how hard life and our daily circumstances get. I always like to see the signs [...]

The Best Present You Can Give This Christmas: Peace

2021-11-24T19:38:24+00:00Perspective|

In last week’s post, we talked about flexibility and adaptability. These are especially important during the holidays, when, believe it or not, we’re still faced with all the things going on in our world that keeps us busy.

So, to continue our ongoing discussion on positive communication, let’s [...]

What’s your personal philosophy – Peace or Panic?

Do you have a philosophy for dealing with hard times, adverse circumstances, stressful situations? All of us face these things in our lives. But I'm afraid most people just wait until hard things proverbially smack us right upside the face before we have a plan. We are in the midst of a "pandemic." The word itself sounds scary, and I talk to many people who just don't know what to believe. Just how bad is it? How horrible is it going to become? No human knows for sure. There are so many differing opinions.   So, what in the world are we going to do about it? Some people will [...]
