I have told the story (on some platform) of the moment-capture I had with my youngest nephew after we spent a full day celebrating my mom’s 80th birthday. He must have been four and a half. I found myself upstairs with both my nephews sitting cross legged with them on top of the pull out couch. They had just gotten into their pajamas and were snuggling into some milk and a show to chill out before bed. All my nephew said quietly to himself, as he was about to take a sip of his milk with his eyes on the screen, was “happy”. I think I remember it because it captured exactly what I was feeling. It was a simple moment. He labeled it: happy. No more. No less. Just right.Read More
Slowing down to return to your own sense of balance and equilibrium is a good idea. This is self-regulation. If one is not familiar with a regulated state, what does one regulate to?Read More
When we see in ourselves that which is vulnerable, that which can improve, that which is not satisfying and is contributing to lagging outcomes in day – we can connect to the other in a way that is not personal.Read More
☀️☕️ Lagging a bit on the topic for this month. Sticking to the January 2021 proposal of monthly themes based on behavior skillsets I learned on the job. See this blog for more ‘deets’. Behavior is a beast. Oh how ‘we’ want to quantify and control it. Oh how ‘we’ want to make our own…Read More
I have 111 posts.
I like numbers. I notice the time on my phone. The time on my dashboard. When it is aligned I notice. It’s fun to feel the something more. As a thinking human I get to tell the story about aligned numbers. The story I tell only needs to resonate with me.
This morning I was going to repost the first blog post of 2021. Last month, I completed the nine Executive Functions I referenced in that first post.Read More
My favorite social app is Instagram. I have 200 followers. I post a video Sunday night and a blogquote midweek. I have momentum in the content, so I mostly ride the wave with a moderate, consistent level of self-satisfaction. It feels good. Every now and then I fall off the wave and entertain self-doubt, and maybe even embarrassment when I consider the way I feel compared to the observable data. And then I get a special comment or like from someone I admire, and it goes away.Read More
Ideas that popularize do not appear in an instant. Not ideas that lead to meaningful shifts and a broadened paradigm of collective reasoning. Someone, manyone, reference the analogy of a seed planted and the time it takes for that seed to reach the surface; and then from there to grow into itself and share the abundance of goodness that was coded into the original seed.Read More
Self-Care: I care about myself enough to be open to noticing my experience, and to allow a different interpretation of situations, circumstances, events (and my response to them), that levels up day. #overandoveragainRead More
Self monitor. An inner resource. I tend to laugh at a well-timed ‘read the room’ comment. Read the room. A phrase that makes so much sense to some, and makes absolutely no sense to others. How does one ‘read’ a room? Is read the room same as know your audience? What does it mean? The…Read More
What does the pure essence of enjoyment feel like? How does it show up in your mind space, heart space, belly space, muscles, skin? (ie. the nervous system response). Enjoyment lives in the state of equilibrium. This is a regulated state. This is natural. Enjoy yourself. It ripples. It trends.Read More
