Are you a Sideliner or a Backburner?

Because of what I do, I’m hyper aware of trends, behaviors, and habits in the happy living arena. I pay close attention to what works and doesn’t work for people, and especially what stops people from living life on their terms. (My approach removes these obstacles, but I gotta know what we’re up against, dig?) […]

Times Like These

Holidays. Crazy-busy work week. Birth of a child. Death of a loved one. Marriage. Divorce. What do all of these have in common? What are times like these? They are all times that disrupt routine, regular life, what we do most days. They are times that kick us out of what we’re used to. Some […]

The Obligatory Thanksgiving Post

Yeah, yeah, I know…”Sid! Everyone posts about gratitude around Thanksgiving. You’re so predictable.” That’s me, Mr. Predictability. And yet… I’m not writing about giving thanks for what you have, or for the people in your life. Go ahead and be thankful for them, I’m just saying that’s not what is happening in this post. Not […]

WST 068: Camouflage the Vice with Virtue
