Live Lighter by scheduling fun.

I often find it difficult to make time for fun. Life is busy, right? And it can be a bit boring at times. The same thing, day in and day, out can get monotonous.   I can (and am) choosing to have more fun in my every day life, but sometimes I need a change in scenery. Like the trip I just made to...

Live Lighter by eliciting eye ball smiles.

In my regular life I tend to get in a closed off albeit comfortable rut. My son attends elementary school where the college classroom model. He goes to school two days a week for his lectures and labs and tests. He wears a smart looking uniform consisting of a collared shirt and khaki pants. The other three days of the week, he works...

Live lighter by noticing what makes us laugh.

Our sense of humor is as unique as our fingerprints. We have a lot in common when it comes to what’s comical. It’s why certain movies, television shows, books, jokes, comedians, and viral Youtube videos, find more success than others. But there’s also ample space for personal preference. When I first began thinking about the art of living lighter, I asked...

Live Lighter by being ultra-concerned with what other people think.

Just kidding! But seriously, what was your reaction to the title? Were you like, “No way!  That won’t help me lighten up! That makes me tense up!” Did you sense immediately upon reading it that “being ultra-concerned with what other people think” is definitely not the path to living lighter? Worrying what other people think is a recipe for heaving living. How...

Live Lighter by applying Rule #6

If you’ve spent much time around me or my writing, you know I live and breathe by Rule #6. I kinda have to if I want to maintain my sanity. I learned about Rule #6 in one of the top five personal development books I’ve ever read. “The Art of Possibility: Transforming Professional and Personal Life,” Here’s the story as told by the author, Ben...

The “You don’t deserve to live lighter,” Lie.

I tend to take myself and every day situations rather serious if I’m not careful. Hence the 14 day challenge. I don’t mean to be so serious. It’s just that I’m naturally… An over-thinker. An over-reactor. An over-obsessor. An over-analyzer. An over-achiever. An over-pleaser. Or at least I am all these things in my head. Which constantly has me trying...

I’m doing a 14 day “Live Life Lighter” Challenge. Want to join me?

Listen to the blogcast (audio version) here. Forget about the sky, Chicken Little- my face is falling! It’s true. I’m getting more lines than college-ruled notebook paper and there’s nothing I can do to stop the printing. I blame it on gravity, pulling things ground-ward while I stand and sit.

I refuse to be Hate’s host.

Blogcast: Listen to the audio version of the blog here.   I was on the phone with the nurse for the second time in an hour. I was panicked. Maybe she knew it… or maybe she was panicked too. “Take him to the ER,” she said with conviction. My son had a temperature of 104. His stomach had violently sent the Tylenol right back...

The surest way to get where you want to go.

Listen to the “blogcast” here. A lot of pain and frustration rises from two specific places. 1) Knowing what we want to do, yet believing we are not capable of doing it. 2) Not knowing what we want to do and believing we are not capable of figuring it out. We often focus on “knowing” or “not knowing” and miss the bigger problem of believing “we are...
