Happiness – a Destination – or a Journey?

“Happiness” –  a word that is bandied about countless times in a day, out loud and in our minds, during conversations, in the midst of disagreements or arguments, in our private lives and in the workplace.

Has life lost its bloom and scent of dynamic aliveness? When you reach that moment in your life, where a nagging feeling of discontent creeps in and a longing for something more, something better, begins playing in your thoughts, that Read more…

Gateways of opportunity when feeling anxious, stressed or stuck


This last weekend I was walking my doggie in a local park. Along with us, there were lots of other dogs, of all shapes, sizes and breeds cavorting happily around.
