Finding Your Place. Takes Courage. Come to Corners at Your Local Bookstore.

The corner

Not another job. Not another title. Not another city. Not another country.  Look for a corner. Look for where your piece fits into the puzzle of life.   Make it a corner piece.    Yesterday the below came in from the Just Quit Survey: “It takes a great deal of courage to step off the hamster wheel of being a slave for others, to bear everyone’s concern, pity & ideas about how things are & how things can’t be changed because that’s the way everything has been done.”   It reminded me of all the people afraid to step off the hamster wheel, even…

It’s 2016.  2016. A New Year. A year of Power. A year of Possibilities. A year of Peace. Power, Possibilities and Peace. That is what this new year can bring to each of us. Forget the past.

Job.   Think about that….

I can’t perform any more and I’m thinking of a fresh start. I’m in a rut right now and I have a feeling that I’m getting into a deep depression.

The Past Is A Place of Reference

the past

For those who want to “just quit” this a special time of the year.  It’s a time of year when you have a few days/maybe even a week or two off  of work. It’s a reprieve. It’s a time to reboot. It’s a time to realize that what was the past, does not have to be your future.  You can choose. You can decide.  Sure, you’ll have to go back to work; but not tomorrow you don’t.

Finding Peace Amidst The Storm

Peace Within The Storm

You’re hating every minute of being, thinking of being, anticipating being at your job. You’re wondering when will it ever end? You don’t see a way out of your situation. Everything seems to be staying the same – nothing is changing. Finding Peace: Knowing that the universe is unfolding as it should. Max Ehrmann said that years ago in his poem Desiderata Knowing that everything…


Being Grateful For Your Journey

tagore quote

“We can look upon a road from two different points of view. One regards it as dividing us from the object of our desire. In that case, we count every step of our journey over it as something obtained by force in the face of obstruction. The other sees it as the road which leads us to our destination, and as such, it is part of our goal. It is already the beginning of our attainment, and by journeying over it, we can only gain that which within itself it offers to us.”  —Rabindranath Tagore  On the road of “LETTING…
