That “One Thing”

Through the years, I have had the tendency to be pulled of my path in thinking that “one thing” was the answer to my happiness. It could have come in the form of a woman (relationship), job, pull of the slot machine handle to cure my financial woes or to cross the finish line of an Ironman triathlon. More recently it has come in the form of creative endeavors (writing books and acting).

Planting Seeds

I was thinking recently about how hard I've been working and wondering if anything that I have been creating and involved in was going to pan out. It felt like I was continually spinning my wheels without any forward movement. And that got me down. I...

Just Get the Scone

I just had a mini epiphany while waiting in the drive-through at Starbucks to get my daily dose of ice tea. The revelation said in no uncertain terms "you are pretty darn hard on yourself, Brian." After sitting with that for a few seconds, I then had no choice but to...

Keep Moving…

Recently there was a car parked out in front of my home for five days. It had a flat tire. Having a car parked in front of my residence was nothing new. It was normal to have cars come and go from that spot; I got used to the variety and the flow.

A Zen Moment at the Dentist’s Office

Sitting in the dentist chair I unexpectedly was able to effortlessly relax and fall into a deep meditative state.  In the dentist’s chair of all places!  I hadn't felt that way in a long time and my body craved it. My only obligation was to be in the present moment,...

No Place to Hide: My TEDx Talk Journey

As I was making the fifteen-minute drive to Pasadena, site of my impending TEDx talk, I turned on the radio in search of some musical inspiration that would both pump me up and quell my nerves. I knew this day would come when I decided to share my story on the TEDx stage. But now that it was here, it felt surreal. Preparing for it had become part of my daily life – I carefully chose every word, rehearsed it alone in my apartment and in front of any friend who would listen. And, more often than not, I danced in that confident space that I could deliver this speech just as I had been successfully practicing it countless times. I was excited and ready. Not just in an “I got this” way – but in an “I have arrived, and no more playing small” way.

Searching for Happiness…the film

It has always been my goal to be a positive and inspiring influence as I move through life.  I have tried my best to share my personal experiences as I moved through my own lessons and growth because I know that we all have a lot in common and if I could pass on some...

Where is Your Special Place?

  Do you have a special place that you like to go to get away from it all?  A place where you can release the mindless chatter and thought patterns that can fill your mind with doubt, anxiety and fear?  A place where you can rest, regenerate and reconnect with...

Writing Tips

From time to time I will get an email from someone asking me for writing tips.  And when I did, It always kind of threw me because I had never really formulated any in my head.  It seemed that when it was time for me to write (when the inspiration came) I just sat...

Feeling Stuck? That’s a Good Thing…

If you are anything like me, you find yourself in what feels like a holding pattern from time to time.  At first it really used to bother me...I felt like I was standing in concrete and had nowhere to go even though I desperately wanted to move ahead.  I used to try...

Come On In…the Water is Fine!

Love is a word that has so many levels of meaning.  Yet when it is used in the context of “finding love” or “falling in love” a lot of us tend to picture the rosy little bubble of the perfect Hollywood movie ending. There are so many ways to share and fall in love,...

An Open Heart…

I recently had my heart opened and awakened by someone that I met and at first it felt magical, exhilarating, amazing and perfect; and then ever so slowly over the course of the next day I began to let doubt creep in because of fearful over-thinking. I began to think...

Flying the Friendly Skies…

I found myself on a plane once again…excited about my upcoming adventure, but anxious about the flight.  I wasn't always a nervous flyer.  Seems to be something I had picked up during the second half of my life.   Normally I would just knuckle down and go into...
