So how have you been? Unless you're an essential worker during this COVID-19 crisis, I think it's safe to assume that you are spending a lot of time at home. By "a lot" I mean all of your time. You're spending pretty much every waking and sleeping hour in your home, mo...

Does anyone here bite their fingernails? Ok, I’ll admit, I do. I bite my nails. It’s not something I’m proud of. But I’d bet my last meditation cushion that most of you do this too sometimes. I also pick at my fingers when I’m concentrating on something or lost in thou...

Hey. Hey you! Hey, wake up! Open your sweet eyes…Time to wake up. Come on, time to start your life! Reluctantly, you open one eye but only a little tiny bit to let some light in. You stretch your legs, tightening your muscles, then relaxing them again. You drift back t...

Once upon a time, new neighbors moved into our apartment complex. It was a nice younger couple with a child the same age as my child. I was kind of excited about it because I was really looking forward to making new friends, especially ones who live in the same buil...

 Do you have dreams? Do you have goals? Do you ever talk yourself out of going for it? I get it. It’s so easy to think up all kinds of reasons why you can’t pursue that degree right now. There are so many reasons why you can’t run that marathon (besides the fact that...
