Liking Someone is Useful, Don’t You Think?

Recently asked what I liked about someone’s personality, other than things that are useful to me, I found myself coming up against a rock and a hard place. The very act of liking anything and anyone brings a sense of joy and wonder to a thirsting soul seeking satisfaction. Disliking does quite the opposite. How does a question such as this get answered with any level of honesty? I read once on a list of […]

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 […]

Keep ’em Happy, Keep ’em Serviced, They Stay With You

Are we talking customer service, or are we talking sex? When I heard this statement, I couldn’t help thinking of many variations of where this statement could be applied. In the context of the conversation, it pertained to customer relations. The conversation was with a beautiful young woman which conjured up other possibilities. “CrustyFarts.com would be a good place for that,” she had said. I was lost on this one. CrustyFarts.com (non-existent yet) is the […]

20 Get Mentally Tough Tips

I don’t usually share other people’s written material, particularly if it is already on the web. However, this particular article came to me via email, as I also subscribe to Jon’s great Newsletter. This particular list happened to arrive at a time when I, too, needed the encouragement it offered. It’s never that we’re handling a situation badly, so much as every little piece of encouragement is good and useful, empowering and strengthening us on […]

What to Look at

It appears even to me, that much of my writing is heavy, and even full of anger. Reflecting upon what this is all about, many things raced through my mind. One is how someone once wrote inspirationally is now turned to a style and focus that has brought attention to bear upon the darker side of our human experience. Justification, rationalization, all represent possible arguments, however, I believe that opening up the expressions from those […]

Nature’s Wisdom – Can Man and Woman Humbly Learn?

Wonderland Originally uploaded by Hans Vink They walked and came to a place where grew a tamarisk tree, and about the tamarisk entwined a vine holding many bunches of grapes. The old maidservant said, “Behold this tree, of what value would it be were it not for the vine? Would it have any value except as firewood? And what of the tree to which it clings, would it not straggle along the ground, laying in […]

Leave a Legacy | An Exercise in Retrospect

February 2005 I sat down at my computer and wrote my own Eulogy. It was an exercise from the Career Counselling days, to draw upon the imagination and inner spirit to describe the life well-lived we want to be remembered. I stumbled upon it today and went, “Wow!” One Man Can make a difference was a deep belief that propelled Lee through the arduous journey to creating a powerful future for himself and those whose […]

Little Things Make all the Difference

The little things that show you care… Originally uploaded by preciouskhyatt Maybe it is because I’m a Virgo, maybe it’s not. I notice the little things all the time, typically having to do with social interactions among people whether in groups or not. Where my observations are even more pronounced is when I’m an active participant rather than a casual observer. Ouch! I’m sure we’ve all had some of those. Our closest relationships, our most […]

Raw Love: The Power, The Pain, The Vulnerability

from the archives February 7th, 2005 Why one should be strong enough to let go… Originally uploaded by winterdoll We are all different. We are all the same. Whereas you have uniqueness that manifests through the expression of your values via your behaviours, attitudes, intelligence, and creativity. At the root you seek love and yet, experience resistance to the fullest expression of love. I have been wrestling with the complexity of love for a long […]

Love and Hugs Make You Right!

Working and living the coaching profession, and being driven with the thoughts and questions that have fed these writings over the years, it was natural to begin finding emails arriving in my in-box along similar themes. Not always reading them, I’m glad when I do and find a treasure everyone can use and remember. Quick to judge from surface appearances, we may not realize just how much is going on in another person’s life. Even […]
