The Classical Dilemma Between the Head and the Heart

heart vs head decision dilemma The same voice in your mind that told you to act, is the same voice that usually ridicules you later for making that choice.

The top 6 Questions You Need to Ask on New Years Eve

happy-new-year Note to the host of the party:  Ask each question one at a time and allow each guest to answer the question and you will see how the conversation unfolds.  Don’t ask the next question until you feel the previous question is exhausted.  It can take a few hours over dinner to get through them all.

Laughter Not Loathing This Christmas

MaryLambert Yesterday my daughter Chloe showed me a video of a beautiful poet/ songwriter Mary Lambert.  I put it on Facebook and only got one like and one comment.  I know it’s not warm and fuzzy Christmas fare, but if you watch it,  I believe it will give you  permission to cut the guilt and self loathing we do around this time from eating and indulging more than we normally do.  Which, I also believe, will allow us to be PRESENT with our family and friends and just enjoy the story’s, laughter and spirit of the holidays.  I think all teenage girls should watch this video.
