Let’s Think Again Together

If you’ve followed this blog through the years, you know it’s all about looking at all things life in a different way. Just because everyone is doing something one way it doesn’t mean it’s the right way or the path that works for you. With that said, sometimes there’s something to collective wisdom, that maybe […]

The Power of One

The Power of One

Do you want to be that one voice that moves others? We all want to make a difference, an impact, and know that we matter. We may not all have visions of leading millions to a new frontier but every person needs to matter and needs to be connected in order to live a meaningful […]

The Naked Thing

The Naked Thing

Naked- “a part of the body without clothes”. Naked changes meaning in different cultures and times. The bible considers hair not covered, naked. It used to be considered naked for a man to go swimming without a tank covering his chest.  Some consider short skirts or shorts to be naked regardless of gender. Others would not consider […]

You’re Not All That… But You’re Priceless

You're Not All That... But You're Priceless

What many parents say to all of their kids: “You can be anything you want to be.  You can be the President.  You can run a company.  You can be a famous actor, musician, athlete, scientist.  You can cure cancer.” But really, can we?  These are nice encouraging words and certainly every person should reach high.  But does every person have […]

Who’s in Charge?

Who's in Charge?

From a credit card charge to a loan, we all borrow money… and the interest rate is generally based on “LIBOR”.

The “We” In “I”

The We In I

In this thought provoking talk, Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks argues that in today’s world we do not see the we in I. We ultimately end up worshiping ourselves. From the emphasis we place on self-help to selfies to online filters which reinforce our world view… we are all about ourselves. And self worship… ultimately leads […]

What About The Drinking?

What About The Drinking?

What stuck with me through the Kavanaugh #MeToo cancellation is that no one talked about drinking. Drinks are such an acceptable part of our culture that no one even dared suggest that maybe… just maybe, we should all do something other than drink with each other every time we hang.  We revel in stories of […]

What’s Your New Years Contribution?

What's Your New Years Contribution?

With a New Year we generally think about our New Years Resolution. Exercise more? Be more present? Floss regularly? Eat better? Be a better spouse/parent/person? For the most part, New Years Resolutions are about ourselves- self improvement- how we can be better as an individual. Let’s switch it up a bit in this coming year. […]
