Ignoring Miracles

Have you ever witnessed a miracle? I guess for you to be able to answer that correctly it would only be fair for me to also ask what you would consider to be a miracle. So, what is a miracle to you?  Is it winning the lottery? Passing a difficult exam? Getting the job you…… Continue reading Ignoring Miracles

What’s a “Super” Food?

I’m pretty sure my first reaction to initially hearing the word superfood was something along the lines of: “Um, excuse me, my expanding waist size is here to tell you that all food is super.” I had never heard of such a thing before in my life.

Be A Champion

What comes to mind when you think of a champion? Initially, the picture that comes to mind, for me, is one of a boxer in the ring, drenched in sweat, raising his gloved hand in victory.

We spend our lives in a constant state of 5 o’clock rush hour. Full of hurrying, quick reactions, expediting the future. We rarely take time to pause.  Pause. Breathe. Listen. Feel. Be present.  There have been several things that I have seen lately relating to the idea of “pausing” for one reason or another. It…… Continue reading Prudent Pause
