Procrastinating or Avoiding…What’s the Difference?

Posted by on Jun 7, 2017 in awareness, decisions, mindsets, procrastination | 4 comments

I am typically not one to procrastinate.  If I need to do something, I schedule it into my daily or weekly to-do list and take care of it. Done. So it’s been very curious to me that I’ve been finding all kinds of things to do instead of working on new Mac training videos. My desk is cleared. My monthly receipts are filed. I have the entire...

Greetings From the Salton Sea

Posted by on Feb 7, 2017 in abundance, awareness, mindsets, personal growth, present moment | 0 comments

But the west coast experienced some of the biggest wettest storms in history, which changed...

  Marika and I spent last weekend camping. Instead of a staying in a campground, we opted to check out the dispersed camping area in the tall Ponderosa Pines of the Prescott National Forest. We drove about three miles down a winding but evenly graded dirt road to a clearing in the trees. After several attempts, I was able to level the RV in the uneven...

Letting Go of the Fear of What Comes Next

Posted by on Feb 25, 2016 in mindsets, spring | 1 comment

When I was a kid, Spring was my favorite season. We could play outside during recess, bright bursts of colors appeared all over the neighborhood, and, oh, it was also my birthday.
