Difficulty or Opportunity?

1-Car StuckUhmmmm, when I ponder this image I wonder if the man in the photo would find a ‘gift’ in this situation. I can just imagine that he is visiting in Europe and this is his rental car. How frustrating would it be for him to figure out how to get the car out of this tight spot? Would I find humor in ...

Mindfulness Update

OprahI continue to work at it … this month was a great opportunity to practice mindfulness … I was on vacation, visited friends and then spent a week at the Jersey Shore (where I grew up) with family. While I cannot say I engaged in dedicated meditation, spending time on the beach moved me to a meditative state. I am happy to say ...

An Opportunity when Losing Trust

card suite Another thought from The Thin Book of Trust, by Charles Feltman ©2009 provides me with an opportunity for looking at my trust of another person. Charles describes 4 distinctions of trust: Sincerity, Competence, Reliability, and Care. Sincerity means, “I mean what I say, say what I mean, and act accordingly.” Competence means, “I know I can do this. I don’t know if ...

How do you want to live your life?

stages-of-awarenessThis image is taken from a blog post by Steven Blank someone I learned of from an unrelated subscription list I receive. His message in this post grabbed my attention because it so encourages opting for opportunity vs. difficulty. We all face crossroads daily and we have the option to choose. How often do you choose opportunity over difficulty? Remember to share your comment on our Facebook page.

Opportunity abounds … if we can just see it

43-Old TruckThe image of this old truck could represent deterioration, uselessness or hopelessness. To a client recently, it offered inspiration … the power of images is limitless. In her case, this image allowed her to express that her life was in disarray and not as she wanted it to be. Choosing this image allowed her to articulate things that had been buried so ...

What obstacles inhibit Opportunity?

62-Rainbow over Grand CanyonFrom prior articles, you will remember that I believe that we always have a choice, that our thoughts generate our reality and that we can make shifts once we are aware. Even with all that, we can still encounter difficulties. Proof positive is a situation I encountered in a restaurant.

I had arranged for a group of friends to attend a ...

Choosing “Opportunity”

63-Bird Nest in TreeChoice” is a most ignored option, in my opinion. I can think of so many times I have heard someone actually say, “I have/had no choice in the matter”. What so many people fail to realize is that we ALWAYS have a choice. Many of these same folks feel that there is no choice because they feel trapped.

What can truly ...

Difficulty or Opportunity … Defined

70-Kite in TreeThis image of a kite tangled in a tree offers a visual insight into the distinction between difficulty and opportunity. The dictionary defines difficulty as “a thing that is hard to accomplish, deal with, or understand; a situation that is difficult or dangerous”. Opportunity is defined as “a set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something, a good chance ...

Mindfulness Update

61-Pier at DuskI continue to work at it…this month I experienced a setback. I have been far less attentive to my intended meditation. This reminds me that what we focus on increases; without focus, I’ve regressed. My attention has been elsewhere, my days have been less structured, I’ve had “play time”…my granddaughter’s ballet classes, some volunteer commitments moved me off track and I ...

The Vacation Break

20-Carnival Ride

I’ll have more on this topic next month; I’m going to the Jersey Shore for a week the end of July. I grew up at the beach in New Jersey and try to visit every couple of years. While I have fond memories of my childhood, once I left my home town to go to college in the northern part of the ...
