For over a year now, I have been advised to write a book. I have had so much resistance and difficulty in sitting still to do it. Knowing what I know about book writing, I had some inner conflict. So here is the mind of Shannon....
"There are many options for books, I know authors that write a proposal and get it published and authors that write a book to build creditiblity and it is like a business card. There is also the option of finding a publisher or self publishing. WOW!!! Then… Continue

True or false:
___ I would be happier if I made more money, found the perfect mate, lost 10 pounds or moved to a new house.
___ Happiness is genetic. You can't change how happy you are any more than you can change how tall you are.
___ Success brings happiness.
Answers: False, false and false.

Don’t worry. When you make small changes, the only difference you’ll notice is a drop in the scale. Keep in mind that cutting calories can involve smart substitutions or changes in portion sizes, too. Just remember,… Continue

Yes, IT has happened our nest is empty. Recently, our second child flew away to go attend college. All of my close friends and family are calling and asking, "How does it feel to be an empty nester?" "Does it feel like being a newlywed?" "Is it true empty nesters...........this ..............and that?" To be perfectly honest, it is the first time in my life I actually have felt, "grown up." I have thoughts of grandeur that we reproduced two happy college students that want to make a difference… Continue

During summer with its plentiful supply of fresh, locally grown produce, it's a great time to think about using food for more than just fuel but as a key element in preventing a host of diseases. As you strive to make healthier food choices, you may come across the terms natural and organic. But what exactly do these terms mean?
Organic refers specifically to the agricultural methods used to cultivate the food. Organic farms forego most conventional pesticides and use no antibiotics… Continue

One of my goals with my book The Spiritual Entrepreneur
is to show people that you can use your business to raise money for charity while making a profit, and that it's completely ethical and moral to do so.
For a couple of thousand years we've been indoctrinated into believing that when we give to a charity then we must make a sacrifice, or otherwise our giving 'doesn't count'.
This very concept comes from a limited mindset that says that 'In order for one to gain,… Continue

With the rising costs of food and fuel putting a pinch on everyone's pocketbook these days, one way to ease the pain is to eat out less and make more meals at home.
Home-cooked meals provide at least 2 big benefits: They help you save money and are healthier for you and your family. Sure, eating out can be an enjoyable indulgence once in a while, but it often costs you a lot of hidden calories and fat.
Once you decide to do more cooking at home, pick out some favorite… Continue

Psychologists tell us it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. I beg to differ.
Ask me to learn something of a physical nature and I can usually pick it up fairly quickly. Ask me to memorize something and I can usually do this fairly quickly as well. As me to learn something deeply personal and impactful and. . . well . . .can we go back to asking me to learn something of a physical nature please?!

Oh am I so reminded of that REM song right now, "Losing My Religion"... as I sit here and right this I have so much to be grateful for! In fact, I am in such a state of gratitude that I'm even grateful to be losing my job in less than three weeks.
Yes, you read that correctly. I've been employed (full-time) for four years as a Programmer Analyst (Database Systems) at Kennedy Space Center, Florida. And I was informed this morning that I will not be picked up on the new contract which… Continue

There are several sources of stress, both internal and external.
: Having that bear chase you. Work, driving, issues about income, the economy, etc. Most of these you have no real control over, so anyone selling "stress reduction" actually can't help you with this unless you quit your job, stop driving, win the lottery etc. What you should be learning is stress management: What you do to handle the various sources of stress and their effects on you, mentally and… Continue

I am basically a seeker at heart. What is a seeker? It is like a student who is focused on finding better answers and even better questions, than they are on graduation, for a seeker knows the only graduation is to the next question. The next topic. The next level of endless levels.
I have thought of some good seeker questions over the years. Ones like “What does God do all day?” or “If our eyes are round, why do people say “I saw that out of the corner of my eye.’” Whereas the… Continue

Interested? And ALL stress is suffering. I hope it doesn't have to get to break-down levels for you to notice.
Yes, there is such a thing, an actual end to pain. It comes with genuine spiritual awakening. This is how it works: you will no longer believe your stressful thoughts. Without those thoughts you will no longer trigger the same stressful emotions, engage in the same dysfunctional behaviors and keep convincing yourself that your life is sometimes a living… Continue

If you have been thinking about some other forms of protein now that the cost of meat is rising, consider the legumes, a category of vegetable that includes beans, peas, peanuts, soybeans, and lentils.
Legumes may be small but they are packed with nutrition. Health benefits include their high-quality and low-fat protein, their cholesterol-lowering soluble fiber, and their nutrients, such as iron, folate, and other B vitamins. Legumes are also classified as a low-glycemic-index food,… Continue
