I Haven't Always Done the Right Thing But I Have No Regrets: Here's Why

Not many people know this, but I’m a pretty big Broadway musical fan.  There are a lot of shows I haven’t seen, but I have some favorites and therefore have tons of their songs in my music library.  Nothing says ‘gangsta’ quite like rolling through the streets of Manhattan with the ‘Wicked’ soundtrack playing in your ears.  ...more

Letting Go of Anger, Guilt, and Regret -- Gaining The Inside Advantage

I recently talked about carrying around excess baggage—the stuff we don’t want or need—the negative thoughts and emotions in our heads and hearts.

Yesterday is Done, Look at Today
