This has been a very interesting week for me. I have had ups and downs but realized yesterday that I am responsible for how I feel. So, if I choose to feel good and happy, that is pretty much what I experience that day. I tried that yesterday and simply had a great day. I […]
Yesterday I was traveling back from Chicago and had an interesting flight. We quickly discovered that an elderly lady was pretty sick and needed medical assistance. The flight attendants asked for anyone in the medical field to come forward. At one point we thought that we were going to have to make an emergency landing […]
Today I am in Chicago and was walking back to my hotel when I saw a homeless man on the sidewalk. Every single person that walked by him avoided eye contact and did not offer him anything. When I got up to him, I handed him some cash, looked him straight in the eye and […]
This morning I went for a jog on the beach like I have done every days since arriving in Destin, FL. While jogging I was thinking about kindness and realized that I had pushed myself too far yesterday. That sure was not being kind to myself. So today I decided to cut my jog a […]
You know, kindness is a lot like a garden hose. What? Did he just say that? Yep, I did. After my morning jog today I noticed a garden hose that had a pinch in it. When I turned the faucet on, there was a pressure build up at the point of the pinch. This meant […]

Today was my first day on the beach and had a lot of time to think about the kindness challenge. As I read my Daily Positive Points (free subscription) email, it got me thinking. In case you haven’t subscribed to it, here was the quote of the day: “If the only tool you have is […]
Today I was once again thinking about giving and receiving. If you have read any of my earlier posts, you will know that I believe that giving and receiving are one and the same. So, ponder this: When you give, you actually give to yourself.
Peace and gratitude,
Today we have been receiving off and on rain showers. Some of them have been quite strong. I noticed a number of car crashes while I was out and about today. Each time I would typically say a prayer for the people involved as well as their families.
I drove a bit to go have […]
Today was a day committed to helping others in any way possible. My son had shoulder surgery and I was grateful to be able to be with him most of the day. It was nice to be of some help even though it didn’t feel like enough. I was thinking about negative thinking after they […]
