No matter where we go in 2015 we can be reached at will by the outside world. Cell phones and text messages, Bluetooth and Sync, Skype and email -- you're only a click away from being found. Honey, you're in techno overload; I am a prisoner of technology! Everywhere I...

There is something that you can do even in these situations where the person doesn't really tell you how you can help them. It is one of these hidden reasons that we may not always think of or realize unless we choose to really sit back and focus on the big picture.
The not doing that some call "procrastination" is universally steeped in shame and guilt and treats this incubation period like it should be included in the list of deadly sins next to greed and murder.
In the end, there is only love of all the memories we were given. We are our mother's daughters. We have traditions, talents and our dreams just like them. We have our individuality, in spite of the occasional dissensions.
One of the reasons so many relationships don't last is that we confuse "falling in love" -- the temporary, emotional, hormone-infused high -- with the act and art of loving, the sacred work of relationship.
Whether it's a job, a friendship, a relationship, a SHIRT, you can't force something that just isn't right. You can -- and you will -- be persistent about making what you want happen, but don't force anything.

1. Treat every day as a beautiful gift. Hands up if you count down the days until Friday. We're wishing away more than half of our week while simultaneously lamenting that "life is too short." We're saving our favorite things for "a special occasion," which automatically sends a message to...

Writing has allowed me to find myself when I found myself looking for answers. But most importantly, like Anne Frank, it allows me to build courage consistently to pursue my dream. I hope you will take the time to find your voice using your writing as your guide post.
If the norm for thoughtfulness now comes in a package of 140 characters or less, then so be it. Yet, let us never underestimate the power of our words in this new age of brevity. There are no shorter or easier ways to say 'I love you.'
At the end of year I took a good hard look at who had exhibited considerable resilience in 2014, and made a list of my favorites. Not only do they serve as great examples of great empathy, optimism, self-efficacy, hope and initiative; they also are the most likely to flourish in the next year.
For most of us, upping your Zen game isn't just about living in a state of bliss and having a clear and empty mind. You and I aren't monks living on a mountain top, with endless days and nights to develop our inner most peace whilst we hone our...
The news is enough to drive you crazy. So much stupidity and life-destructive behavior. So many mind-blowing challenges and just bits and pieces of solutions here and there. How to make sense of it all? How to live your life in the face of the insanity that surrounds us? More...
My childhood, though unique in some ways, is not that unusual. There were challenges and even painful experiences, but I have come to understand that in order to see beyond pain, first there must be pain. There were many children born to the some 350 members of...
In her early 20s, Ruth Soukup spent 2.5 years battling debilitating depression. Today, she is a happy mom, wife, author and proud owner of a thriving Internet business. How did she overcome depression to build a happy, healthy, successful life? According to Soukup, whom I recently interviewed as part of...
Getting healthier is always a top priority for many of us around the new year as we come off of the holiday binge and look forward to summer. "Healthy" can mean different things to different people, but generally, feeling good, looking good and taking care of yourself fits the bill.

"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got" -- and if you always think what you've always thought, you're gonna keep doing what you've always done. I hope this brand new video will help you change your mind about a few things... If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the "Tap Out Your Fears" series -- which explains the basics of EFT -- click here. As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you! For a picture of the tapping points -- and more info on EFT -- click here. Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer. Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at www.TapWithBrad.com. For EFT with kids, please visit: www.TheWizardsWish.com.

Many 40-somethings, like Bruce, eventually realize life turned out vastly differently than their idealistic, younger selves imagined. Unlike many 40-somethings, however, Bruce took his dream as a message and decided to do something about it.
I am here to love and be loved -- to use my love to change and be changed. I did not come here to get wrapped up in a Disney fantasy or spend my life hunting my Romeo.
When everything else in our lives is consistently shifting, we want to be able to come home to familiar surroundings, and feel as though something is permanent and stable. However, even those things that seem constant are subject to the will of time, and will change.
Taking a fresh approach to boredom may be just your ticket to greater satisfaction in 2015! Why? Because, in our fast paced, digitized and hyper-linked lives we feel more and more compelled to fill idle time that could be used to actually reflect, relax, create and connect.
