A Blessing in Disguise

I think of these last six years as a great fight in the boxing ring of life. The announcer roars “And now, in center ring–” the crowd goes wild waiting for the match to begin, the fighters face off to determine their fate. But in this match, I don’t wear the boxing gloves. And I’m…

Seasons of the Soul: Autumn

As a New Englander, I fully embrace this time of year. Perhaps I’m biased with the joy of living in New Hampshire as the leaves turn to brilliant red, gold, and yellow. The splendor of this season rejuvenates my soul and brings me to a place of peace and reflection. We are all, in a…

A Peaceful Reflection

What do you see when you look in the mirror? We often wear a mask to hide what’s brewing inside of us. When there is a turbulent undercurrent that dwells just below the surface—that we can’t come to terms with—we wish to bury or hide it from others; we put on a smile to reflect…

Sleepwalking Through Life

Going through the motions just to get through the day is often where we find ourselves, isn’t it? It’s the mundane, repetitive, daily grind that can drain us.
