A Thought “Experiment” for the “Healthy”

If you are one of the lucky "healthy, normal" people out there reading this, I have a favor to ask of you. I guess this would work only if you are over the age of 30 as well, so my apologies to any younger readers - I am quite sure I have plenty of questions … Continue reading A Thought “Experiment” for the “Healthy”

Sunday Thought …

I realize there is not alliteration going on with this post, but I have been thinking about something I have advised others NOT to do and yet I have found myself doing - that is, "snooping" on Facebook (not really "snooping" as much as just LOOKING) and inadvertently comparing myself and my life with others … Continue reading Sunday Thought …

“Tautology” Tuesday – “Know Thyself …”

I have to say, I … Continue reading My SOUL Sunday – Nightmares Revisited

Mindfulness Monday

Today I am just writing a short little "blip" about chains of "coincidences;" things to which we often ascribe some kind of "intent" or "meaning" when they occur. When I say this I mean something like if you were to find a $5 bill lying in the middle of "Main Street" and you took that … Continue reading Mindfulness Monday
