“You're welcome Douglas! Having a checklist definitely helps, as some important things can get left by the wayside. Life happens, of course, but gentle reminders guide us back on our paths.”

“Thanks for your comment MEDMED! Yes you are right in that part of finding balance is accepting things as they are and feeling fully well. And, the other part of finding balance is knowing that other areas could use some loving attention too, even if you feel balanced to begin with!”

“You are SO right, Dr. Chen! Have a blessed day!”

“"Selenophobia: Fear of the moon" episode is awesome. Its director, Mike Polizzi, also created a web series about a zombie that craves alcohol instead of flesh (www.deaddrunkseries.com) -- hilarious!!!!!”

“Hi Wisteria, thank you so much for your comment! I'm touched and really appreciate it.

Yes, as Karen previously pointed out, there are definitely problems in the world and we can either bury ourselves in them or rise above and do our best.

Wishing you the best in your journey!”

“Thank you so much for your comment, Weathermaker, Ph.D.!
You are correct in that creativity can be stifled by routine.
I have immense respect and support for time off, so Stefan's talk is very much in line with my philosophy. It's when people struggle with getting the day to day tasks done that these tips can offer support.”

“That may be true! it is a strange concept for some women to be approached by male strangers isn't it? I am more likely to believe, however, that one cannot allow this assumption to prevent one from going out and meet people.”

“Hey Liven!
Thanks for your comment and it brings up the interesting observation that dynamics will differ for male and female iniatiators.
Nicholas and I both had the gamut of reactions from "not so much" to thrilled, for sure.

You can make a lot of assumptions about the differences in reactions, but at the end of the day, if you don't make an effort, you'll always be trapped in a state where you may not seek social situations.”

“You gloss over the gender disparities to the complete detriment of relevance of your story. The vast majority of women, cute or not, do NOT want to be approached by the vast majority of men (i.e. ONLY if the men are cute), and not only will not engage in conversation with an unattractive (but confident!) strange man, they will run away and/or call the police.”

liven on Jul 10, 2013 at 16:23:30

“Oh, I agree completely.  My point is that a male approaching a female has more hurdles to jump than a female approaching a male.”

“Oh my god, Wendy. Your article moved me to tears and the thought of your mother wanting her own just made me appreciate that the bond is always there. Like you, I also feel I want to be independent and resent my own mother at times too and yet now I see that despite that, the connection will always be there and that there's much still to be learned. Thank you for sharing with such honesty.”

“Jamie, I feel for you so deeply. Although I have no kids, I can imagine how stressful it can be. Have you heard of the book "How to talk so kids will listen & Listen so kids will talk" by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish? It may help more than drowning out the tantrums. May you be happy and live with ease.”

hp blogger Jamie Krug on May 1, 2013 at 17:14:59

“Thank you for those recommendations, Catherine! I always try to be as well-read as I can when it comes to raising my children. Not every aspect of every book fits my kids entirely, but I find that taking suggestions from each one and adding them to my own parenting practices works wonders for a more complete perspective.”

“Hi Shay! Thanks for your comments! I totally agree that bellydance is empowering - it has a technical side to it that is challenging for men and women alike and I'm aware that in many countries men bellydance too, so this article speaks just for me as a woman. Keep doing the great work you do as a teacher! :)”

“Thanks Eemia! I'm so glad the article resonated with you! It's so easy to get caught up with the thought that you don't have the right body for bellydance (I've been there), but the funny thing is, bellydance has made me appreciate my body and what it can do! I think bellydancing is one of those dances that appreciates all body types for sure and the more belly, the better!

P.S. American Tribal Style rocks!! I did a brief bit of that in our show this past weekend :)”
