Why are people taking this pandemic not for what it is, dangerous. Some things are not negotiable. How you confront this virus is similar to allowing your child to touch a glowing piece of iron. You don’t! We know the media keeps blowing every frivolous thing out of proportion to get your attention. When there is something that is as unpredictable as this coronavirus, the media has no tricks left to convey the seriousness of this deadly threat.
It concerns me when I see a team of cleaning women of five driving without masks in a small car from house to house, kitchen staff and construction workers chatting it up without adhering to safety measures. The worst ignorance is that the general public crowds Beaches like any other beautiful weekend. Our town has one of the oldest populations in California and yet during weekdays I see more people over 65 out going about their business without caution. This careless behavior creates stress and worry for those who adhere to current health standards. If we keep ignoring precautions, we ask for the National Guards to keep discipline to contain this virus as we see already in Europe and the rest of the world.
Since we have no prior reference, we can’t rely on our feelings or logic alone. The coronavirus just is. For the foreseeable future we have to adapt to it by following the rules. Is it challenging? Yes, but what else is there to do and what else is currently more important than protect lives?
Do the few things that help and be disciplined a.HANDSWash them often, b.ELBOWCough into it, c.FACEDon’t touch it, d.FEETStay more than 6ft apart, e.FEELsick? Stay home. If you feel certain things are okay to do, check before the CDC https://www.cdc.gov/ or WHO https://www.who.int/ websites. Bill Gates predicted we could contain this pandemic within four to six weeks if we are disciplined. Stay safe and let’s ride this crazy thing out for yourself and everyone else.

The most rewarding, but intricate thing in life is to overcome the fear of looking at yourself, not in a comparing or self-critical, but in a new, self-observing way. It’s similar to meeting yourself as being another person for the first time. Look at yourself and open up to see the whole of you. Stop comparing, not because it is worry-some, but it does not work. Everyone is different, no exceptions. See the things you like, dislike, what you display and hide, force them all into the light, not to evaluate or judge but to feel. Evaluating Self as good or bad is an easy cop-out that does not work because it prevents you from feeling. Instead, you want to feel consciously, observe and understand who you are and why without evaluating. Integrating self-observation into our routines, eases our life and helps prevent us from bumping into “obstacles.” Meditation is one of the most powerful facilitators of self-observation.

There are opinions that either fear or loneliness are the bottom line of all constricting emotions. In my experience, it is the synergy of both. It is the fear of loneliness that is the big unseen bugaboo. Please, stay with me and forgive my wordiness. I guarantee, it will be worth your time. We all know fear or loneliness and we somehow can get through them. The synergy called fear of loneliness is something else and much deeper. Continue reading →
“Everyone deserves, as we’ve so often said. If deserving were the cause of success, then everyone would be successful. Deserving doesn’t cause… willingness does.” Lazaris. It is so true. Does the president of the United States deserve to be president more than the average business owner? No. Everyone deserves what they want, but most are not willing to have it, Continue reading →
Is it good or is it bad? It seems nothing in our world is black and white, right or wrong. Recessions aren’t recessions. Business isn’t business anymore. Even friendships have different dynamics these days. Humans are creatures of habit. When things change or, in our current situation, the world changes, we get anxious and frightened. If a burglar wakes you up at night – you are afraid. If you are afraid, does not mean a burglar is in your house. Continue reading →
The goal of a life coach is to first find what is working within you and for you, then build on that Real Foundation. A Coach does not teach you his/her own paths to success.

HOW TO FIND WHAT YOU REALLY WANT: Oddly, we humans know to the smallest detail what we don’t want, but when ask what we do want we stutter. The best way to find “what you truly want,” is discovered in “what you don’t want.” Try this, either for a section of your life like relationship, job, business, or for your life as a whole: 1. write down everything you don’t want or fear, till you have nothing left. 2. Make a new list by turning the first list all into positives. Continue reading →
Playing with a story structure by jumping timelines is confusing enough and mostly used when there are holes in the story or to explain the inexplicable. The newest thing, next to extensively shifting timelines, BBC overwhelms by adding sequences of different imagined realities of Sherlock to thicken the plot. If it was not for the great acting and buzz of the show, Continue reading →

Can’t you remember when you got a new car, and all of a sudden, you see the same car everywhere. We see what we focus OR don’t focus on. The same happens with our thoughts/feelings. Positive thoughts/feelings attract more positive thoughts/feelings, which in turn confirm to you a life that is more positive, therefore make you think more positive thoughts and so on… Negative thoughts/feelings Continue reading →
Happiness is the bottom-line of all you do and all your desires. What you choose to do comes from you believing it will make you feel happier. I.e. You want this sports car to show your wild side, to feel young again, to be happier. Whatever it is you choose to do, loving or hurting someone, you believe, ultimately, Continue reading →
CREATIVITY: If you don’t have a creative outlet, you might want to try finding yours. Like physical activity, creativity is a major human need, suppressing creative expression is leading to expressions that are much less fun like creating drama or hardship. In addition, creativity detracts in a pleasant way, without numbing, from your daily stress allowing you to balance your non physical with your physical part that is you.
Lay down or sit. Close your eyes. And watch yourself what goes on with you. Are you impatient? Do you think you are doing it wrong? Relax, you can’t. Most importantly, watch your thoughts. Let it just blabber on and listen what your thoughts are saying. This allowing of blabber will relax you and it will sooner or later stop. Then you fall asleep or you Continue reading →
Our gender differences create false impressions of our partners. Dr. Pat Allen really got me to see the fact that men and women are not like dogs and cats, but rather more like turtles and giraffes. This huge gender difference between men and women. How we feel, behave and perceive differently, creates distrust and a false feeling of incompatibility. Without knowing the basic Continue reading →
