Learn To Communicate Again

Learn To Communicate Again

When I was recovering from one of my many surgeries, I remember waking up in a hospital room all alone. The next day the nurse pulled the privacy curtain closed before she wheeled in another patient. I could not see him, but I could hear him. In the first few hours I lay there staring at the ceiling, unsure of what to do. It got to be too much for me.

The problem is the faster you run, the more details you miss, and that is how you fall behind. It is those details that...

Choose To Be Mindful

Choose To Be Mindful

Being mindful is not an endeavor confined to a specific time or space. It is a practice that should be woven into every action you take and every reaction you make. Mindfulness is a choice. It is an orientation in the world that you choose to make or to avoid in your everyday acts. When practiced on a consistent basis being mindful will form the foundation upon which you build the habits that will lead you or from unconscious auto-responses to...
