Mmmm..I am trying to think of ways to make my life more enjoyable???
Do you enjoy your life? Yes I am asking you to get a little philosophical today………
For many of us we may need to break this down into the different aspects of our lives: home; work and play. For example, some of us may be very happy at home but miserable at work. So if you break your life into these 3 general categories how does each area rate? Maybe give them a score out of 10? Continue reading

I am so confused…do I look for answers or ask questions?
Do you look for answers or are you more of a questioner? This is not a riddle or even a trick question? With this in mind, think about your life, your goals and your happiness.

The grass right here is just perfect!
Are you a grass is always greener thinker?

Do you try to be the best you can be?….Now, when I ask if you try to be your best, I don’t mean do you try to be the best at everything, I mean do you make a conscious effort to work on those negatives and enhance your positives? Do you believe that personal growth and change is possible and something that you actually have some control over? OR are you from the “I am what I am, take it or leave it, like me warts and all or rack off” camp? Now I firmly believe that others shouldn’t try to make us change just to suit their rules but I also believe that we should strive to bring out our best………. Famous American, poet, author Maya Angelou makes a very poignant point when she made the following quote “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it”…with this in mind are you successful? Continue reading
OOPS...I don't think I was supposed to do this???
Do you believe in the perfect person? Would you want to be perfect? What is perfect? Do you want to be the person who knows everything, who never makes a mistake, who is able to tell everyone else what they are doing wrong? Continue reading
