Get Up Again When You Get Knocked Down

Some days are brutal! I know you know what I mean. We’ve all had them! I’ve had so many metaphors run through my head for how this feels. Keeping your head above water when the world is pushing you under. (I thought it sounded to much related to cash) When you feel like a bobbing yo-yo. (a what?) That’s enough of that, the title says enough – like that song, “I get knocked down, but […]

Bleeding Deeds, Life’s Lust

I lead with my heart, letting deeds bleed me cold. The cruelty of form and substance was told, teach this boy to be a man, to claw and cling for every scrap, this life is our trap and rapture, and all the bleeding a must to trust. Launch yourself into oblivion, again and again unknowingly lost, seeking to find the innocence that slowly disappears in the dust. A phoenix you will be, one day near […]

Growth

For the sake of writing! There has been a hesitancy, even a fear or sense of dread, about writing on the blog pages of One Man Can. You see, the whole premise of the site, the writing, the coaching, the encouragement, was and is intended to lift people up, challenge people positively with their thinking, relationships, and professions. Instead, I found my own life being challenged and myself having difficulty being positive with the unfolding […]

Medic! Medic! : Helping the Wounded Live

from the archives July 13, 2006 On the battlefield a fallen soldier will often lay there near death, expecting death, when a comrade will stop and offer comfort and aid. Encouraging and strengthening his fallen comrade simply through comfort, the yell will follow, “Medic! Medic!” as help is sought that will bring the wounded soldier the medical attention that is needed. There are times when death will come too quickly or help will come too […]

Lose Yourself to Feel Good

Denial: I have to wonder what this is really all about. Over the decades, as psychology has gone more mainstream, it has infiltrated every aspect of our lives culturally and socially. It’s in our health coverage plans, employee benefits, in the movies, sitcoms, and even more in the advertisements. I’d say they’re having an influence upon our self and group consciousness. Earlier, I caught myself asking a question to seek the opinion of someone else […]

The Cure for The Curse of Abandonment

Deserted, alone, with nowhere to go, no place to call home because home is where the heart is, and even with the sea of people littering the cityscape, the silence of abandonment echoes deafeningly in me. Hunger for that connection starves rational thought, fed through years of abuse or neglect, and keeps the solution always just beyond the fingertips of my reality. I know it is there, if only I could reach out and grasp […]

A New Kind of Love

I’m in Love in a very different way than I’ve ever experienced before. It is not a kind of love that feels all that comfortable to be with. I ache and have these very unusual bodily experiences… not quite muscle ache, but something creeping in the muscles. It’s a tension that comes with this Love. You may wonder what this different kind of love is. Self Judgment and Criticism People are often very good  at […]

Overcoming Challenges: Being vs State of Being

Most people overwhelmed by and completely identifying with a condition applied to their particular health issue might actually be able to overcome their challenge through exercising their mind. With a focused effort upon creating change within the mind and the thoughts that arise, the effects of the mind upon one’s emotions can evolve. As emotions affect chemical production of the mind, becoming aware and engaged in changing thoughts can also affect the feelings generated by […]

Mental Illness: Is it Mind over Matter?

Please note, this post is not recommending people do not seek proper medical advice, nor stop their medications without first consulting their supervising physician. In many respects, mental illness can be overcome with a concerted effort that applies the mind to the task of creating change. The problem for most is they feel overwhelmed by and completely identify with whatever condition has been applied to their particular problem. Does this mean you’ve been diagnosed incorrectly? […]
