Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt

2017. This is my first chance to sit down and think about what that means. A new year is a great time to just stop and reassess. Be still. Listen. What I’ve heard so far; I’ve heard my son graciously accept consequences for a mistake that seems huge for the...

Notes from Steve

Encourage courage. This is kind of a theme for me lately. As I wrote last week I was skiing with my family last week in Steamboat Springs.*One of the family members hadn’t skied before and despite being drug on the ski lift and completely humiliated, he went back and skied...

Notes from Steve

Amy's Reflections

Don't Make Assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life. ~ Don Miguel Ruiz Well it’s official; I have...

Notes from Steve
