Letting Go of Things That Hold You Back
writes, "As the end of the year draws to a close and we turn our thoughts to the New Year, take time to notice what baggage you might be carrying.

writes, "In the spirit of the holiday season I'm going to derail a bit and talk about gratitude. Bill Ayers is quoted as saying, "Your kids require you most of all to love them for who they are, not to spend your whole time trying to correct them."
