I was listening to another podcast and it got me thinking about emotion, you know one of my favorite things to talk about. I thoroughly believe that being in tune to our emotions makes us better communicators, lovers, friends, parents and overall better people. Anyways I digress, the podcast was talking about happiness and this goal that all of us try to achieve. We believe that if we just lose
I believe that I have talked about my career coach I have at work. It is an interesting process and I am thankful that I have him and for what he has taught me. One of the biggest lessons I have learned from him is that many extreme emotions, like anger, are often derived from a place of fear. Let that sink in a minute and we will come back to it.
The end of last week and the beginning of this last
It is really hard to have people that you care about no longer be a part of your life. Unfortunately, we live in a world with perfectly imperfect people. It is just the way we were created.

We both keep
I am a really resilient soul and one that really does not like to feel like I am failing. If I start to feel that way I kick into overdrive and I am like “Oh Hell No” mode.

I was rereading a book called QBQ, The Question Behind The Question by John Miller. I thought the content could be helpful to some of my leaders at work and was hoping to conduct a small workshop around the book. You see the whole premise of the book is on personal accountability and eliminate victim thinking. What are the incorrect questions or IQ’s as he calls them and the
Something I have been reflecting on a little bit today. Yeah I know even this early in the morning but I suppose you don’t get to determine when you brain is like “Hey, we are going to think about this now.” There are a lot of things I miss about my past and what is no longer with me. Some in my more recent past and others the more distant.

For those of you that may not live in the state of Michigan or follow US College football the University of Michigan and Michigan State University football game was this past weekend. Anyway I had posted on my Facebook page asking who was going to Ann Arbor, MI (where University of Michigan is) to tailgate.
