Have you seen rift between parents and children?
They live in harmony until self-importance takes over.
What of father and what of son, when ego reigns?
Then, the relationship is blighted.
When our hearts are heavy and our minds are filled with troubling thoughts … We find ourselves once again in the “Basics” …

Often when we are feeling saddened by society, we enjoy drifting away in a good book(s) and baking?!? Baking … CultFit style this Thursday peeps. Be well today and ENJOY!!!
Every day brings a choice: to practice stress or to practice peace-
I read lots of blog posts, talk daily with all sorts of inspired people from whom I learn so many thought-provoking things. Everything from how people ask for the time on the bus to how mediation is a remarkable tool in our daily lives—whether they are winning races or losing narrowly in a local 5k … This is just a part of what I do all week behind the scenes here at CultFit.
As I was wrapping up the post on Friday, I was suddenly galvanized by the reporting on one of most horrific stories any of us have ever encountered in our fleeting lives. The tiny, innocent school in Connecticut, where those elementary school children and several adults were shot to death this past Friday.
CultFit is normally meant to inform and entertain you about the world around us. On any given day here, CultFit is more about entertaining you and providing a glimpse behind the curtain. Although there are days, and this past Friday was one of them. When fulfilling this responsibility … Feels especially frivolous.
Today, I can’t bring myself to write a witty, meaningless post.
May this humble post serve as an expression of my sympathy for all of families involved in Connecticut who lost children and loved ones this past Friday. May you somehow find, in time: Strength, Peace and Serenity.
Patience, n. — A minor form of despair, disguised as a virtue-
People are cynical and honestly: Why wouldn’t they be? All of us are overworked, trampled on, paying more for yoga class and coconut water. Our dreams are slowly fading away and struggling to find meaning.
Dark clouds seemingly consume the conversations we have with friends and family. Is talking about Doom and Gloom useful? It some instances it can be, just not today.
Today we challenge you to find the courage to be optimistic!

Pleasant experiences make life delightful. Painful experiences lead to growth-
Being sincere and open with your feelings can make you feel vulnerable in the world we live in. When you finally open your heart? You do so with the uncertainly that other people will not treat your feelings with care and love.

All of us struggle daily to make life meaningful by grasping and holding onto the “things” in our life. This is a wasted effort on our part. The meaning to life is everywhere, just take a moment to look around. We force ourselves to find Meaning and burden ourselves trying to Create relationships.
Not too sure where we are going with this topic, maybe?!?
