Badger’s Big Day Comes with a Lesson for Us All

Yesterday was a big day for my little boy… He finally got his fence! After 10 months, Badger finally has a backyard again that he can go run around and play in. Janell and I had so much fun “revealing” it to him. :-) He definitely had the zoomies.   I love this picture!  ;-b [...]

Showing Up for Those You Love

I’m going to ask you a question that I want you to take very seriously… Please don’t just brush this off. Deal? Here goes… Can you show up in the best way for the people and things you care about most if you’re unhealthy? Let me quickly define unhealthy since it’s such a broad term. [...]

Let’s do a “Word of the Day” today :-)

Our word of the day… Behaviorceutical - a physical activity that improves mental health, particularly reducing stress or anxiety. I picked this up in another newsletter (thanks Chris Kresser!) that Janell forwarded to me. Coined by Kelle Lambert, a neuroscientist, it's a fusion of “behavior” and “pharmaceutical.” “I made up this term called “behaviorceuticals,” instead [...]

Your Vision Breakthrough

This past weekend Janell and I attended (for the second year in a row) a couples retreat where we did some awesome work on our relationship...we also had some wonderful quality time together including some beautiful hikes. We were both a bit nervous going into the workshop because we knew the first major thing we’d [...]

Back from Sedona With Some Important Questions

Janell and I are back from an amazing - albeit short - trip to Sedona, AZ. It was an amazing experience! Besides the beautiful setting - we were in Boynton Canyon - our “conference” was incredible.  As I mentioned last week, it was a couples retreat… A “two-day workshop [that} gives you and your spouse [...]

The Most Important Desire of All

Happiness vs. Joy

First, I want to say the response to Tuesday’s post (“Finally waking up at 43”) was wonderful!  I received so many supportive emails and many people are or have been struggling with similar issues. And, thanks for all the birthday wishes, too. :-) Second, I missed on yesterday’s newsletter.  Besides some planned time off, that’s [...]

Finally waking up at 43

Today is my 43rd birthday and I feel like I’m just waking up to life… I’m just getting back to work after taking some time off for some R&R and a lot of introspection and discovery.   I gotta say, I’m more excited about life than I’ve ever been! Why? Because, I’ve come to realize [...]
