Just a quick note to let you know a couple of schedule changes, and remind you of one truth:

When we feel helpless at what life throws at us – it’s an illusion STOP.   We are NOT helpless.  Remember:

WE control our own thoughts and responses.
WE decide the direction of our lives.
WE are the captains of our own ships in The Sea of Life, and the decisions we make are critical to how peaceful we are.

Although our minds warn us constantly about what can – and does – go wrong, WE CHOOSE how long we’ll dwell on that, and how soon we acknowledge it and then move on.  I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again:


I teach hundreds of people in person each week, and as I watch them, I know we ALL need to be reminded:

WE are in charge of OURSELVES.

Don’t worry about anyone else.  That said, on to business!  

  • The beginner drop-in class at Izaak Walton Center in Elgin has been CANCELLED today due to a power outage there.  We’ll meet again there on TUESDAY JANUARY 24th from 4:30 – 5:45.
