I dedicate this site to the memory of my stepdaughter, Heather, who was murdered on Thanksgiving 2017. I want to chronicle some of the events and spiritual insights that happened. It is my hope that this may help some other souls who stumble upon this site. Maybe some good can come off this after all (read more here).  ~ May 2018

A new way to proceed: more info, less editing

Starting now, I will proceed on this blog differently. More info, less editing. I find that editing is holding me back, while more and more insights are backing up in my internal queue. I ask you, dear reader, to forgive little mistakes in grammar and spelling, and look to the deeper insights hidden in the lines.

How to Deal Better with Failure and Disappointment

We all fail from time to time—-that is only human.

In either case, you may feel a deep disappointment or maybe even depression.  But it does not have to be like that – in fact, the whole notion of failure is incorrect. Let’s see why.
