How I Trashed My Credit Score

Recently my wife and I made a decision to stop paying the mortgage on the home we lived in for 14 years. It was extremely difficult for so many reasons. Number 1 we had raised our 2 youngest children there for most of their lives. Secondly, it was a symbol of triumph for Kristin and I because when we met …

FINDING YOUR MOJO

I remember when I first started out on this awesome journey and people would ask me what I wanted in life. I’d say things like I just want to be happy or I want to have the freedom to live my dreams or I want to be financially independent. These are all great dreams to have but what does that …

FEELS LIKE THE FIRST TIME

I remember the first time I kissed a girl. Her name was Pam. I knew right then I was in love. I was going to marry her and spend the rest of my life with her. We were going to have three kids and live in a nice home in the country. I wasn’t sure where the kids would come …

Playing the Shame Game

I was at an event a while back where we were being trained for professional speaking. I was so excited because I’ve always wanted to be on stage making people happy. Originally it was a dream of being a rock and roll singer for some famous band but that got short circuited. I grew up believing strongly in sex and …

W.O.R.K is a 4 Letter Word

As part of my unlearning process I’ve decided to redefine some of the words that I use. Some of them need to be removed from my vocabulary altogether because they don’t serve me in any way. Words like “should”. “Should” is a word that I only use when I’m judging myself or others and I’m not qualified to be a …

No Wasted Days in 2015

So here we are. The final day of 2015. As I reflect on this past year with gratitude, I’m taking a little inventory on what I’ve accomplished this year. Being my own harshest critic, my tendency is to be disappointed in all the things I could have done. But I’m not going there this year. There are no such things …

Another Christmas Story

As I sit here, 3 days removed from Christmas, I reflect on another Christmas season. A few weeks a year when we all give ourselves permission to return to that childlike state. That state where we’re able to take pause from our hectic lives we’ve created for ourselves as adults and just enjoy certain beauties. All of our senses get …

Healing

Christianity teaches us of the holy trinity.. Father, Son, and Holy ghost.  This translates to me as Mind, Body, and Spirit. Each of us has those 3 entities as part of our being. This is how I came to understand that we are all God and God is all us. Mentors of mine like to break it into 4 categories …

Letter From My Dog

Dear Greg, I haven’t communicated through language since my spirit was in a human body so bear with me. Once we are aware that there is no need for separation, language is no longer needed. There is only love. I’m connecting with you in the form of a dog in order that I may teach you. It’s much easier for …

The Advice Myth

There are many so called “experts” out there ready and willing to give me advice at every turn on this journey. Some will do it for a small amount of cash in the basket or a credit card number. Others will give it for free with the purest  intentions. Some of it I found valuable and other times it’s really …
