Which Kind of Happiness Do You Focus On?

I’ve had many conversations about happiness over the course of 2013 and was beginning to wonder if anyone experienced true happiness or if it’s just something the feel-good gurus have convinced us to believe in. For us common folk, it’s incredibly hard not to have dramatic emotional responses to the constant ebb and flow of life; most of us get mired in our negative experiences and get beaten down over the course of our adult lives. Life can be so unkind. But I love Deepak Chopra’s description of the two types of...

Hooked On TED: How to Know Your Life Purpose in 5 Minutes (Adam Leipzig)

  Adam teaches us how to identify our life’s purpose by answering 5 questions. Once you have those, you can sum it up into a nifty little elevator speech. Hint: this isn’t about you, it’s about other people. Who are the people you serve, what do they want or need and how do they change as a result? Answering those questions makes you outward facing. The happiest people make it a point to make other people happy.

Are you paralyzed from moving forward because you don’t think you have all the knowledge/experience/characteristics to get to a higher level? Do you compare your accomplishments to people around you and automatically think they are better and more worthy of success? These feelings are so common, they’ve been given a name: The Imposter Syndrome. If you suffer from this, it can be a huge obstacle in reaching for what you want. But...

The Big Ugly Box

The Big Ugly Box

  There is a ginormous house going up next to mine. I’m David. It’s Goliath. I live on a busy street and it’s been erected amongst many blocks worth of smaller, one-story homes and it is ridiculously out of place. And not only is it a monster, it’s downright UGLY! A humongous, ugly beige box. Seriously, my little happy duplex is 510 square feet; I could fit 12 of these under the roof of that big ugly box. So much for my view of the sky. So much for privacy in my back yard. Poor unhappy duplex.   I’ve had plenty of time to...

Gingery Chicken Noodle Soup

  I have yet to find a better chicken noodle soup than this one.  You can easily make it vegetarian by using tofu instead of chicken and veggie stock instead of chicken stock.  YUM!  I make 2 batches of this at a time. Perfect for those wintertime colds.       Serves 8 Ingredients 3 ounces dried soba noodles (you can use traditional egg noodles instead) 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 large yellow onion, chopped 1 tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger 1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped 1 clove garlic, minced 4 cups...
