The truth is, you already have all the answers you will ever need. You simply need to (re)learn to listen to them. The hustle only really works when it's matched with the ease of your inner voice.

I once read somewhere that if you're looking for the perfect man to fulfill your dreams, become the woman you would marry if you were a man. I thought this message was right on target and so clear that it got me to start working on my self-image and take my mind off what I expected from a man.

It is perfectly okay with me if someone wants to believe that they know more about my gender than I do. However, I kind of have trouble when they try to tell me that I have to take their delusional daydream and create my own personal nightmare.

How to Stop Pretending You Know What Makes You Happy

I think in our culture, events tend to seem separate from other events in our lives. The only similarity is that they are connected through the person experiencing them. We place a great emphasis on what we do, not what happens to us. Things have to happen the right way and because of our own doing.

The idea that creating legal protections for LGBT citizens grants special rights is purely absurd. Special rights are rights that one group of people have while others do not. The special rights in this situation are the rights that are denied to LGBT Americans.

The Softened Heart

I believe that if we make the effort to listen, we can hear our hearts guiding us. And if we think we can ignore its wisdom, we will lose our way. Eventually we have to face up to our past choices. But doing so gives us an opportunity to bring our love and compassion into the world by listening to our wise hearts.

As he leaned in sheepishly, his steely blue eyes gleamed with a fascinating mix of fear, shame, and a dash of hope. "Please don't tell my mom." He was referring to his big confession: four overdue math assignments that piled quickly.

Is it time for the spin police?  Sitting in the theaters of entertainment, politics and business, one wonders if practitioners of influence are abusing their tradecraft and the trust of their markets.  One wonders then if they'll self-correct or be market-corrected.

Let's face it. Getting rid of old books and knickknacks is much easier than tossing out a relationship, a weekly class, a house that is too big, or a job that doesn't suit your passions. So what do you do to declutter your life?

In What We Can't Trust

I was born a cynic, and for me to admit to miss the feeling of trust is nutty. But I ache for the good-ol' days when news was news, when you trusted that journalists did the hard work to check the system of fact-checkers getting the facts factually.

He does not speak for Kansas. He does not speak for God. Hate is not a Christian value. Hate is not a Kansas value. Hate is not an American value. The greatest possible gift I can give to this world is to be my true, authentic self. Sam Brownback has no power to change that.

I was never a boy. I was always a girl. In spite of the lies that were constantly being told to me, by my body and by the world, there was never any real doubt about this truth. I was just one of those girls who were told that they had to live as a boy.

What I didn't realize is that our own inner voice can be the most dangerous voice of all. It's the first thing we hear in the morning and the last thing we hear as we close our eyes at night. The way we choose to use our voice, or even choose to not use it, impacts us in ways that are often beyond our comprehension.
