Respect Your State – “Emotional control starts with accepting and respecting the current state you are in. You can’t lie to yourself about how you feel. If you aren’t feeling great, telling yourself that you usually only bottles up those emotions until they later spill out.” Popular post from earlier this year.

From the Shelf

Stumbling on Happiness – Fantastic book that gives a scientific perspective on our struggle to find happiness. One of the few books that I’ve read that really completely alters my perceptions. If I could sum it up in one sentence: “If you think you know what makes you happy, think again.”

Debate is fine, flaming is not. Pretend that this comment form is a discussion taking place in my house. That means I enjoy constructive criticism and polite suggestions. Personal attacks, insults and all-purpose nastiness will be removed especially if it is directed at other readers.
