The Anxiety of Choice

The Anxiety of Choice

The skill of choice is something I’ve had to work on (and continue to work on) a lot throughout my life. Those who know me best will tell you I am incredibly indecisive. Picking simple things like what to eat for dinner or what movie to watch are often particularly a struggle. More often than not I will end up making a list of appealing options and offering it to the other person. I would like to think it is because …

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

Jennifer Hale was a special guest teacher in Steve Blum’s Live Teaching Series class recently. WOW! She is a powerful representation of goodness and light!

Then a surprise: Last night (March 16) I was invited to watch a …
