Happiness from a Dog’s Perspective

Katie can put a smile on your face when you are having a bad day or when you are feeling down and out. She will greet you when you walk in the door and follow you around wanting your attention, all while wagging her tail.

She loves you unconditionally and always has a smile on her face.  To…

Hold Fast to Dreams, Pursuit of Joy - Mom. Life. Love.

Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird

That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.

A poem by the great Langston Hughes.…

So You Didn't Win the Lottery…Now What?

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.

Now that all the mega-lottery winners have stepped forward, the overwhelming odds are you didn't win. Americans spent $1.5 billion in their quest to win the jackpot, fantasizing about how they would happily spend the $656 million to be paid out to the winner. As it happened, there were three winning tickets so the final after-tax take home for each will be about $100 million. Still, nothing to sneeze at.

Are you…

Springing into Spring - Time for a Fresh Start!

Spring is just around the corner!  To most of us, spring represents a time for freshness, growth and re-birth.  Flowers start to bloom, animals emerge from hibernation, and birds return to the north from their winter homes to nest, procreate, and chirp away from morning ‘til dusk.

In most parts of the country, days become longer, weather becomes milder, and many people emerge from their own winter hibernations and spend less time indoors.  The warmer weather…

Living Joyfully Everyday

By Jennifer Urezzio, Contributor – Spiritual Affairs

One of the “things” that prevents me from choosing to live joyfully each day is all the doubts and fears of what I’m supposed to be “doing” with my life.

Which, if I really spent some time…

Love is More Than a Four Letter Word

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.

Long before it was a song, the saying was a part of our conversation - and it's especially appropriate during February, the month of love:

Love makes the world go 'round.

With all this whirling, love can make you feel off balance and dizzy. Sometimes it's tricky to keep your personal world turning without having it spin totally out of control. Although our focus is most often on romantic love,…

What Bhutan Can Teach Us About Happiness



It has been over ten years since I retired from full-time practice and spent three months volunteering and traveling in Southeast Asia. One of the best parts of my trip was spending time in the remote Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. It was their monarch who defined the concept of Gross National Happiness (GNH) to measure quality of life. And Bhutan is the only country in the world that puts happiness and general well-being at the heart…

Hi! How do you do?

Pleased to meet you!

I'm just your common fade-in-the-wall mom

Trying to get out of my daily dump

Everyday Life is ever so exciting

Cooking, cleaning and screaming

Motherhood is such a roller coaster

It just goes on for ... Forever ...

My darling kids regularly drive me up a wall

Turning me into a crazy Neanderthal

Academic school pressure is a teensy, mere tip

The iceberg has to be the emotional angst… Continue

A Thought on Happiness

This past year or two I've been thinking a lot about religion and spirituality. Matter of fact, lately I've been dreaming of listening in on a theoretic "end of the world" forum-of-world-thought. Well, I kind of just made that name up. But you get the idea. I want to sit down and listen to everyone who has a vision of all this massive change taking place worldwide and simply hear dialogue. It's the English major in me. I want all the colorful characters, the momentous stories. I want to line… Continue

Gratitude: Yes, Folding Laundry Makes Me Happy

It happened again today: I caught myself feeling really happy while folding laundry.

It’s such an odd thing because I don’t particularly like folding laundry. Well, it’s not folding the laundry that makes me happy — somehow, looking at our clothes always makes me feel really grateful for all the things I have in my life.
