      Want some helpful tools to break through your limiting beliefs – so you can live your happiest life? Read on…

       

      Over a decade ago  I was home sick with stomach troubles. My friend Joelle suggested I order up papayas to help heal my belligerent belly. So, from a cramped-up position on my bed, I ordered up papayas from a local Manhattan bodega.

       

      “Um…. Excuse me,” I told the delivery guy when he arrived at my door, bag in hand. “These aren’t papayas. These are mangoes. I need papayas – for my tummy. I have a tummy ache.”  I patted my stomach. “Sorry, [...]

        Dealing With Challenges? Embrace your Karma! Don’t know how? Here’s a helpful Legos analogy!

          Want to find your soulmate? Read on…

          Once upon a time I used to suffer from what I call Prince Harming Syndrome – the tendency to date men who were either Trouble or TroubleD.

          I remember once I was sharing a dark story about a particular Prince Harming with my buddy Scott, when the man at the next table at the café interrupted.

          “Excuse me,” this stranger said. “I hope you two don’t mind, but I must confess I overheard you talking … and well … I’m a psychoanalyst … and I’m worried about you,” he said, staring directly at me. “Do you mind if [...]

            Lessons In Kindness From A 5-Year Old by Marni Rivera

            Here are some inspiring lessons in kindness… from guest blogger Marni Rivera’s 5 year old son!

            One beautiful morning, I was having breakfast with my 5-year-old son, Finn. I noticed our waitress walking toward us and thought to myself, she needs to smile. She hardly said hello and hurriedly took our drink order.

            We both noticed that her mouth was wired shut. My son asked me why her mouth looked that way, and I told him the few cosmetic reasons why someone would need their mouth wired. Then he looked at me with his big, cute eyes and told me to ask her why.

            When she dropped [...]
