So we’re a month or so into the New Year. The holiday things are put away. New Year’s celebrations are but a memory. Do you remember the resolutions you made, the plans, goals, and promises you set for yourself? What do you suppose causes us to set those goals aside so quickly? What leads us to give up on our goals and dreams? I think a lot about goal setting for myself and I help others set goals so that they can achieve...

9/14/15: "I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and never let you forget you're a man, because I'm a woman". Does anyone remember that commercial for Enjoli perfume? If you do you may be "of a certain age". It not here is a very brief history of what was going on at the time: the sexual revolution was in full swing, women were joining the work-outside-the home force in increasing numbers, Billie Jean King had beaten Bobbie Riggs in a tennis match that was both historic and sill...

7/23/15:  I've been thiking a lot about direction lately and how we lose our way sometimes.  My husband, Jeff, has told me stories about a professor he had in college who was always challenging his students to "Find your north, find your north".  Whenever we are hiking, running, sailing, engaging in any outdoor activity Jeff gives me the oft repeated directive, "Come on Katy, find your north".  All too often my response to him is , "why?".  Well I have been thinking a...

June 25, 2015 Forgiveness. We hear that word a lot. We are told things like, "you need to forgive so you can move on", or the old standard, "forgive and forget".

A graduation speech made my Jim Carrey has been making the rounds on facebook. He expressed many words of wisdom and gave some good solid advice. Many things he said stood out, but one part has been rattling around in my head pretty hard. He said that his father took the "safe" path and worked as an accountant, but lost that job. In other words while his father may have wanted to do other things with his life he chose to do that which he thought was safe and at which he might not fail. The ... Read Full Post »

1/4/15:  Welcome to the new year?  Have you given up on your resolutions yet?  Do you tend to make resolutions that you don't keep?  Why do you suppose that is?  Perhaps the goals that you set are too big.  It might be useful so set smaller goals that will lead you to the bigger goal in the end, but the smaller goals feel less overwhelming.  Also, why limit making resolutions to a time of year when you may already be feeling tired, stressed, fat, guilty? ...
