Offended (or, trigger is not a horse)

How's this for a tagline? "Offending your mind to get to your heart!" I saw this quote on a promo for JP Sears’ latest podcast episode, an interview with Master Coach Brandon Hawk. Now, if you have not yet discovered JP, you’re missing out (at the very least, you’ve avoided being offended)! JP

Preach It! (or, who IS this guy?)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve no doubt heard that there was a very high profile wedding not too long ago. And by high profile, I don’t mean that the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle held any significance for most folks – just that it got a lot of publicity.

Love With Conviction (or, what can we learn from terrorists?)

Best-selling author Marianne Williamson came to Charleston recently as part of her Love America tour, and I had the opportunity to attend her Friday night talk. What a firecracker! She is an amazing woman, chock full of spunk! Although there were lots of great nuggets peppered throughout her presentation, one thing really hit home.

What’s In Your Head? (or, the zombie apocalypse is here!)

I’m probably in the minority, but I’ve never watched an episode of The Walking Dead. In fact, I never really bought into the whole Zombie apocalypse thing. But, after listening to the Bad Wolves’ cover of Zombie (originally recorded by the Cranberries), I’m having second thoughts. I think we might actually

The Fear of Risk-Taking (or, mediocrity is bad?)

“The most powerful threat to greatness isn't evil. It's mediocrity.” Mediocre: Of only ordinary or moderate quality; neither good nor bad; barely adequate (dictionary.com). There seems to be a trend towards mediocrity these days. We see it in education, sports, business, and politics. We even succumb to the status quo in our personal lives.

How Do We Define Success? (or, which way to the playground?)

Have you noticed that things happen in threes? Well, the other day I saw three articles – one in the news, one on Facebook, and another on Twitter – all talking about the same thing! Naturally, I took that as a sign….there’s a there there. What’s more, I need to write about it. Pop

Tackling the Mental Health Crisis (or, there really are no words)

As you know, my blog (and my life’s purpose) is about operating from a place of Love rather than Fear. I try not to get caught up in the downward spiral of current events unless I can offer an educated opinion without succumbing to fear-based rhetoric. That being said, I feel compelled to write about

Diversity (or, do you want fries with that?)

DIVERSITY - Why are we so afraid of this word? Why does this one little word cause so much anger and opposition? Why are we uncomfortable even discussing diversity? It will probably come as no surprise….human beings find comfort in sameness. We thrive on commonalities. In fact, where romantic relationships are concerned, studies have
