By Coach Phatty, published on Jun 23, 2014

A man stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be wired to his mother who lived two hundred miles away. As he got out of his car he noticed

a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing. He asked her what was wrong and she replied, “I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother. But I only have seventy-five cents, and a rose costs two dollars.”

The man smiled and said, “Come on in with me. I’ll buy you a rose.” He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother’s flowers. As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home. She said, “Yes, please! You can take me to... (more)

the article is about understanding maladaptive behavior

By jonpercepto, published on Jun 4, 2014

... These recollections, many of them subconscious, control our present behavior and reinforce patterns that either give us a balanced approach to dealing with our problems or reiterate maladaptive behavior (responding poorly to a situation) that interferes with our ability to form intimate relationships. How can we tap into these memories is the question that continually arises as we struggle to find the answers that help us understand why we react the way we do in certain circumstances.

Psychoanalysis often takes years to uncover what our psyche has taken a lifetime to bury... (more)

Don't Be A Donald Sterling

By Randy Mitchell, published on May 15, 2014

By now everyone has heard about the antics of billionaire Donald Sterling, whose racially-charged rants gained media coverage everywhere.

It’s a sad testimony to an obviously smart businessman (you have to be either very smart or extremely lucky to have that kind of wealth.)

You would think someone so talented in the art of making money would be just as sharp in his personal life, learning to play correctly within the affairs of society and piecing together an inner personal circle having his back and protecting his interests.

Isn’t it amazing what the right face can... (more)

Dear Facebook…

By DKIdea, published on May 12, 2014

Social media has changed the world. I can’t say if it’s been changed for better or worse as that depends on your personal experience with it. What I can say is that some of the stuff I’ve observed has given me pause to consider if people can generally be a bit more responsible when using it. Understand that this post is going to be purely opinion driven, but if people can use social media to vent…then I can use this blog to share my critique of their observed venting.

Now I’m not going to spend too much time talking about those folks that have turned Facebook into their own platform... (more)

Are You Seeing Elizabeth Taylor?

By Randy Mitchell, published on Apr 9, 2014

...to her credit. However, things didn't exactly end up well. Infidelity, alcoholism and unkept expectations were reasons for her breakups. The problem was the enduring emotional pain or all three left extremely long scars, affecting and keeping her from enjoying new and potentially healthy relationships.

Most that look to marry all carry natural expectations. They someone to grow old with, take care of, have their backs, raise children and build a financial nest egg each can benefit from. It's only normal to want a partner who'll make you their most important person.

By Coach Phatty, published on Apr 5, 2014

This is a true story of a Mother’s Sacrifice during the China Earthquake.

After the Earthquake had subsided, when the rescuers reached the ruins of a young woman’s house, they saw her dead body through the cracks. But her pose was somehow strange that she knelt on her knees like a person was worshiping; her body was leaning forward, and her two hands were supported by an object. The collapsed house had crashed her back and her head.

With so many difficulties, the leader of the rescue team put his hand through a narrow gap on the wall to reach the woman’s body. He was hoping... (more)

Don't Be A Crab!

By Coach Phatty, published on Mar 26, 2014

I decided to share a little bit of my life with you and tell you a short story of a lesson that I learned when I was a kid and still practice it to this day!

I am a born and bred “clam digger”, a “shore boy”, a plain and simple man that grew up and lived at the beach. There was nothing better than going fishing with my brother and dad on the rock jetties by the local inlet trying to catch Fluke, Flounder or some other tasty fish or sitting along the docks of the local boatyards attempting to haul in baby Bluefish.

Fishing wasn’t the only thing that we loved to do. If we... (more)

However, for some it doesn’t mean running to the jewelers, racing inside a church or shopping for furniture together at Crate & Barrel.
