living well or living comfortably

Good morning to you! Have you ever heard that life is short? Sure, we know it is - for everybody else. Somehow we think we are the exception, that somehow we have all the time in the world. But we don't. So that begs the question - how are you living your life? Are you … Continue reading living well or living comfortably

a life well lived

Last week was quite a week. My last day in the office for Ambassador Enterprises (a great company filled with exceptional people!) to working with some good friends whose company is growing, to packing up my truck for me to drive South. So, not too many posts this past week. Today (Monday, September 15, 2014) … Continue reading a life well lived

be present

Good Friday morning to you! One of the challenges that I have is that I am often thinking about the future or evaluating the past. Too seldom am I present in the moment.

Are You Saying “Yes” When You Should Say “NO”?

It has been hot here in Michigan! Up to 100 yesterday - makes me feel like I am back in the South. Have you ever said yes to something when you should have said no?

How Do You Live Your Life?

Following is one of my favorite quotes from Theodore Roosevelt that is a challenge to me when I seek a life of ease: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
