What A Peacock, An Imaginary Foe, And You Have In Common

The Peacock While on vacation along the mid-coast of California, I stayed at a modest little motel away from the highway and not far from the ocean. I anticipated quiet morning lie-ins with the sound of the surf in the background. At dawn the first day I was awakened and greeted by an annoying pounding coming from the parking lot. It was just after sunrise on a beautiful sunny day. Outside, directly below my room somebody was doing something and I couldn’t figure out what it was. It was an odd almost rhythmic series of loud hammering sounds, a pause, and then more of the same. Bang. Bang. Bang, bang, bang. Pause. Bang. Bang. Bang, bang, bang. There wasn’t...

How Problems Are Like Diamonds

When we think of diamonds, the image that most often comes to mind is that of the valuable crystal clear, sparkling gem mounted in a piece of fine jewelry. They are treasured for their brilliance and, as most of us know, because they are virtually indestructible. It is the hardest substance on earth. Owning diamonds is a symbol of wealth and abundance. Even a small quantity of diamonds, a mere pocketful let’s say, might make most of us feel rich. If we saw a diamond lying on the ground, we’d surely pick it up and smile at our good fortune, right? But diamonds don’t come out of the ground cut, polished and sparkling with blinding radiance. They come out of the...

I love shopping! I don’t care what it is, I’ll offer to help my friends shop. Need a car? Oh, let me go online and research for you! Need to find the perfect dress? Please, let me go with you! Yes, I love to shop! Shopping for a coach? Well, maybe not so much.  But, I look at this this way…. When it comes to choosing a life coach, finding the right one for you is like finding the right running shoes. Sometimes, off and running, you find a pair that fit just right.  But, sometimes you have to try on a couple pair and compare. Still other times, you have to run around the block a couple times. Sometimes people finally cultivate the courage to...

Kick Perfectionism to the Curb

Have you ever noticed that people aren’t really afraid to admit that they are perfectionists?   Oh sure, they will sound guilty, but they aren’t really.   People don’t feel bad telling others: “Sally is such a perfectionist”.  It’s a compliment.  It’s like telling someone their too skinny.  Would you be ok if you found out someone called you a skinny bitch behind your back?  (Love that book btw)  Or, if they said:  “OMG Jane has the perfect marriage, the perfect children blah blah blah… That’s ok with me just please, please, don’t say I’m flawed, fat and messy right?   But, is implying that someone is a Stepford wife and has a stepford...

Three Main Ways We Think and Spelling!

 First, let me say thanks for stopping by! I would like to take a few moments to talk about the three main ways we think and how that could affect whether or not you are a good speller. This could possibly be useful if you still have children in school. It was news to me! The 3 ways we think are: Visually Audibly With our Feelings Most, if not all good spellers see the words visually. I’m a visual person and that’s exactly how I see words in order to spell them. If it’s a word I am really unfamiliar with as a last resort, I may try to sound it out. But, I always start out visually. So I checked this out with everyone in my family. All are good...
