The Scars the Opportunities Leave Behind

The Scars the Opportunities Leave Behind: I am an adherent of stoic philosophy.

That is, for the one who permits him or herself as a vessel, the obstacle creates within that person virtues that couldn’t have been created otherwise. Virtues that are necessary to prepare that person for the life he or she has asked for. Picture a king who wants to test the...


Episode 45 - Owning and Standing in Your Own Truth

Standing in Your Own Truth: What is your story? What is your truth? At the very core of your being, who really are you? Do you stand in solidarity with the person that you are, even with your ‘flaws’ and ‘inperfections’ or do you stand with those who make it thier mission to judge your worthiness based on such ‘flaws’ and ‘inperfections.’ Are you proud of that which is true about you even if it does not meet the status quo? Are you conformatable in this skin that you are in? Do you look in...


Episode 44- My Message to your Life Guru
