Truth Talkin’ Thursday: Episode 36

Jane and I started an interesting conversation on the subject of how many people give up much too quickly when having to accept a new way of living their lives, or a new crisis of some kind that could interfere with their ‘life plans’. My point was that instead of ‘capitulating’-giving in we need to learn how to adapt to our new circumstances so that we can still have most of what we set out to have or enjoy. So we discuss some simple ways of doing that. It’s like any other skill–it takes imagination and practice.

Truth Talkin’ Thursday: Episode 35

Greetings: This week Jane and I discuss the age old issue of managing change–choosing to adapt to new situations or changes in our lives as opposed to just giving in or giving up feeling victimized. Often times folks just don’t want to fight the system any longer because they feel they can’t win anyway so what’s the point. The point is the difference between feeling as though you have some power by learning how to adapt and just giving up-capitulating.

Truth Talkin’ Thursday: Episode 32

Greetings folks. Well Jane and I sorta disagreed with something I had said about parents and parenting and so that became the topic of our conversation this week. I said that I thought if parents weren’t prepared to make their kids their #1 priority then they should not have had kids in the first place. Jane had some other thoughts and shared them with me. See for yourself what she had to say.

Truth Talkin’ Thursday: Episode 31

This week Jane and I got down to exchanging personal philosophies with a good discussion regarding the BIG question that plaques a great number of people: “What is my purpose?”  “What is it that I am supposed to be doing?” “Why am I here?” I see it as a very basic uncomplicated process or it can be–Jane had another view and explanation that was great and one that works very well for her.

All the best and enjoy. Send along your take on this topic to  OR to Jane at:

Truth Talkin’ Thursday: Episode 29

Greetings-this week Jane and I discussed the importance of belief systems and how we are really held hostage by them from an early age. Many adults find that they are curious or even concerned about the strength of our emotions when it comes to decision making and why we feel as we do.

Truth Talkin’ Thursday: Episode 27

Jane and I comment on the Teachers vs. the Board in the recent negotiations. My position was simple-heres a period of time for both sides to get together and settle the deal over the summer. No deal–it starts costing BOTH sides per day–1000.00 per day. After a week it goes to 5000.00 per day-and after that it doubles per day. The kids should not be the ones who get penalized and most of us know that it is not the teachers working in the learners best interests nor is it the board. For the board–do they have to pay the teachers if they are not working? There is never a guarantee of retro pay as part of a settlement–not should there be.
