Notes from Steve

Last week on vacation, my one “ah-hah!” moment was in the hotel gym. It had mirrors all around, and I watched myself as I ran. I saw that I looked really stupid when I ran. My gait is too short, and I run with an old person shuffle. (long, dreadful...

Notes from Steve

“I don't want my life to be defined by what is etched on a tombstone. I want it to be defined by what is etched in the lives and hearts of those I've touched.” ― Steve Maraboli I recently read a devotional on motive and how your motive for doing...

Notes from Steve

Last week I was fresh from returning my cat to the ARL (animal rescue league) in Des Moines. I was full of guilt and regret. In my ongoing attempt to extract a lesson from absolutely everything that happens to me, good or bad, the lesson I learned was the cat...

Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt
