Recently I have been forced to endure some tests whose results changed my social life dramatically. These seemed to be all related but flowed more as a 'series of unfortunate events', if you will. These changes have improved my self worth and respect by a mile. Although it was quite an internal journey, it has sent me into a whirlwind of emotions that have ultimately had me come out on top.
These trials all started with a choice I had made that many find themselves at a crossroads with in fleeting relationships. Most predictably, I am talking about infedelity which I had ultimately made a choice to succumb to. A friend of mine had introduced me to a man she had been friends with through her then boy-toy over a pool date with the four of us in attendance. At this point my first impression of him was rather superficial and misled due to a pre-date talk i had with my friend. I was in a relationship at this point with a boy who was, accurately , 1 year and 9 months younger than me and by

hand-in-cookie-jarFor the last week and a half, I've been traveling on my book tour for Happier at Home. I love getting the chance to talk to so many people about happiness.
When I gave my talks, the issue of abstainers and moderators came up several times, so I thought it might be helpful to post this quiz yet again. Recognizing this distinction has been one of the most important insights that I've had into my own nature-more helpful, say, than understanding that I'm an under-buyer, not an over-buyer.
When dealing with temptation, I often see the advice, "Be moderate. Don't have ice cream every night, but if you try to deny yourself altogether, you'll fall off the wagon. Allow yourself to have the occasional treat, it will help you stick to your plan."
I've come to believe that this is good advice for some people: the "moderators." They do better when they avoid absolutes and strict rules.
For a long time, I kept trying this strategy of moderation-and failing. Then I read a line fromRead More »from Back by Popular Demand: Are You an Abstainer or a Moderator?
You just bought a brand new laptop with Windows 7 and you take it home to try out all the bells and whistles. You right click on the little computer in the lower right hand corner and select the the name you know to be for your wireless router. You type in the security key as instructed only to find you cannot connect to the specified network. Oh no, what to do? Fear not, I have the solution.Read More »from Troubleshooting Windows 7 Wireless Connection
Recently while vacationing in Hawaii, my daughter and I had difficulty connecting to my friend's wireless network with our Windows 7 laptops. I had the SSID and the security key, but still was unable to connect through the normal process. I thought this very strange since our Ipods/Iphones connected fine so I knew the information was correct. It just seemed no matter what I did, I could not connect. Ultimately, I ended up just physically connecting to the router with a Cat5 cable which posed some serious mobility issues. Not to mention bruising my ego pretty seriously since as a Network Admin

"You blew on the sea and the water piled up high; it stood up straight like a wall..." (Exodus 15:8)
Sometimes it's difficult for us to understand some of the miracles recorded in the Bible, like the parting of the Red Sea for the Israelites as they fled from the Egyptians. Exodus records how God, "blew on the sea and the water piled up high; it stood up straight like a wall..." If we haven't seen it, if we can't comprehend it, we often tend to discount it. How terrible that is because the practice of discounting God's miracles robs us of the hope we need when we find our own selves struggling and needing God's intervening Spirit.
Just for the record, here's a picture of water "standing up." Really, look at the drops standing on the petals of a rose a parishioner grew in her garden and gave me yesterday. Science tells us that the water standing up or beading up has to do with things like adhesion and cohesion. The rose petal's surface is smooth enough

Here's Something New to Feel Good About Today!
Here is the Divine Dichotomy…
The way to 'get there' is to 'be there'.
Just be where you choose to get!'
It's that simple.

What's your dream? If you don't have one, it's time to find it. If you do it's time to pursue it….. If not today then when?
I love the above quote! For me it takes pressure off of my "becoming" who I want to be to believing that "I am already" that person. Once I step into that role, I am empowered. READ MORERead More »from Live Your Dream
