I get a lot out of reading your blogs. I have healthier control over my thoughts and feelings, and it helps me take better care of myself and my family. I feel more like an owner and less like a victim in life. What do you do for your physical health? Do you exercise? Can you share something on that topic? Thank you, HW
Dear Readers, I’ve had a few experiences lately that have jolted me into the realization that my story is what I continue to tell myself and others, AND that my story may be holding me back from the next phase of fulfillment and happiness that I realistically envision for myself.
Dear Maddisen, I’m so tired of the pattern I have of feeling melancholy and sad and being too serious. With the exception of a few things I want to improve in my life, I consider myself pretty fortunate. I’m healthy, I have good friends, and I like my work, but I feel sad a lot. I don’t want to take anti-depressants, but I want to feel more natural joy, more often. Do you have something in your toolbox for this? I want to feel better. Thanks, MB
Dear Maddisen: I have very clear and specific positive goals for my life, but I feel like something is missing, like I don’t truly believe all of them are possible. But honestly, they’re all doable. How can I fully believe in my goals? How can I erase the doubts? Thank you, DW
I recently watched the movie “Last Vegas”, the 2013 comedy about 4 senior-aged men who fly off to Las Vegas to be ‘bad boys’ and throw a wild bachelor party for one of them who is about to marry his 31 yr. old girlfriend.
