Make Space for Moments of Peace in the Daily Grind

Peace is contagious. We have the power to choose peace. In our thoughts, actions and interactions.

Find time to get quiet and focus on the peace there. Then try to bring it with us in whatever we're doing throughout the day.

If we did, we may have paid closer attention to our decisions and perhaps listened more to our elders. But no, youth is king, and we knew better. Just watch us prove… Continue reading Trying To Save Someone Who Doesn’t Want To Save Themselves

I Could Really Go for a Hug

I will not play tug o' war. I'd rather play hug o' war.

Oh, so very good! No matter our age, we all… Continue reading I Could Really Go for a Hug
