Peace, Love, and Humility

In the wake of all the things going on this week and amongst my own anger and confusion at our government, I was reminded of this prayer.  I grew up Catholic and although I no longer practice, I’ve always loved this prayer and St. Francis.  Peace, love, and humility.  It wins in the end.

I’ve been stuck.  I’ve been stuck for a few months now.  I’ve been caught up in a consulting project and I’ve put my other work on the back burner.  I haven’t dedicated as much time to creating whether it’s art or writing.  I haven’t coached as much over the last few months.  I’ve been consumed with someone’s business and all … Read More

I haven’t been a follower of cycling or Lance’s career.  I am however a fan of seeing people succeed.  It moves me deeply to see someone achieve their dreams and for them to also do something good with that … Read More

We hear it all the time – it’s important to take care of ourselves.  The airplane safety rule has become more popular outside of the plane: “Place the oxygen mask on yourself before assisting others”.  We know that we are only capable of taking care of others and doing our best in life when we care for ourselves as well.  … Read More
