3 Reasons We’re Annoyed and Impatient

No one wants to be known as annoyed and impatient. Personally, I’ve always considered myself a pretty patient and tolerant person. Growing up in a home where my mom operated a daycare, and as the oldest sibling of three, I learned how to field things and people so that my nerves weren’t taxed. As I’ve matured I’ve become more compassionate with how I regard others’ plights. And, I’d like to think that my mindfulness practice helps me to be more kind, generous, and present. But you know what? That doesn’t feel so true at the moment.  I’ve got two kids, lots of demands, and little time. I’m finding that I’m annoyed and impatient more often than I’d like.  I vacillate between thriving and surviving many times in a day. After recently reflecting on my not-so-proud reactive mommy moments, I’ve come

space

Give Me More Space

As adults we often talk about wanting, needing, or honoring “more space” in our lives. Space in all forms – physical, mental, and emotional – is important for our growth and sanity. We give our kids “time-outs” to come back to center, we do solo activities like hike, run, or walk to clear our heads, we even voluntarily choose to go on silent meditation retreats to reset within the singular space of ourselves. Space is good. Space is powerful.  But the space I’m interested in isn’t this kind of space. To me those are metaphors for the space where life’s potential energy actually resides… The space between stimulus and response. “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” – Viktor Frankl The

5 Lies & How They Impact You

I might be talking about lies this week, but let me start with one thing that’s TRUE: all of us are doing our darn best to have a good life – we do the best we know how given all we’ve got. That said, here are a few possible lies that could be running in the background limiting your joy during the journey. Check it out. Lie #1: There is a right way (and a wrong way) Says who? There’s no big book in the sky that dictates how things should be. There is no “right” way, there is just A way. There may be a way that could be more efficient or one that yields more benefit, but it doesn’t mean it’s “right.” When we get trapped by this idea that there is a right vs. wrong way, we

5 Things Happy People Don’t Do

(And What They Do Instead.) We all want to be happy. Some of us do a really good job at keeping our emotional set point pretty high, while some of us struggle to find joy in anything. And then there are those of us feeling like we’re at the mercy of external circumstances making “happy” a wild rollercoaster ride. So what are truly happy people not doing (and more importantly – not thinking) that distinguish themselves from the rest of us? After lots of conversations, research, and reflection it seems to come down to these 5 simple things. Happy people don’t: Suppress emotion. As a conditioned left brained thinker this was a hard one for me to get. I’ve understood emotion as a function of thinking, not simply a natural component of the human condition. That’s since changed for me and
