The path of life can be treacherous at times 

For most of us, life’s a journey, which is a polite way of saying life can be fun, but it’s often challenging — extremely challenging. At times, life can be downright brutal.

If you’re like me, your life’s been a series of trials and errors, mistakes and missteps. At times we get it right, but many other times we flounder. That’s a polite way of saying we can make a terrible mess of things — and then suffer the consequences. It’s at these times that our lives test our sanity — even our will to live.

What makes life so difficult?

Well, to be honest, we do.

Dysfunctional thoughts and behaviors we’ve learned growing up — or “inherited” from our parents — can make our lives a living hell at times — not just for us, but for everyone around us. This baggage trips us up and sends us crashing face first to the pavement.

Great Jean...I've posted several blogs so far. Hope you enjoy reading them and, if you like what you read, pass them on to others. Dan

Rebecca...We do yearn for simplicity. I think we just grow tired of all the details...all the things we have to take care of...At some point, a cabin in the mountains with an easy chair, a book case full of good books, and a few cups, spoons, and plates...seems so alluring. Dan
