Can good become better?

Dr. Paul
Couple sitting in backyard.

This spring I sat at a coffee shop in Lisbon enjoying a sunny morning in Portugal, towards the end of a lovely trip with my wife. It was a beautiful, warm day. I felt content and peaceful. As I watched the world go by, I was struck by an interesting thought that touched down in my mind, like a plane coming in for a landing—How could I be a better person? I decided to investigate this thought a little more—after all, I had nothing I had to do at that moment. Read more about Can good become better?

Is your marriage on empty?

Married couple embracing outdoors.

Not long ago, a colleague, Bill, shared with me his sense of loneliness in his marriage. He and his wife, Sarah, have been married for many years, raised a family, and enjoy spending time with their two grandchildren. Bill worked long hours on his career. It was important for him to provide for his family and save money for his kid’s college education.

Adult couple walking through the forrest.

It’s been a beautiful summer in the Pacific Northwest! The days are long, warm, and almost every afternoon has been sun kissed. Indeed, we are the land of the late day sun. After work, while the sun is still high, I enjoy walking around Green Lake in Seattle with the parade of after-dinner walkers. Kids are still splashing around in the water and there are battalions of standup boards paddling across the lake. Read more about We are more similar than different

Important realizations of family life

Dr. Paul
Family sharing breakfast together.

When my daughters were little, I had two important realizations that changed the course of my parental life.

I realized that their childhood was going to fly by, like a flash of lightning in a summer sky. Before I knew it, they would be out of our nest. And, I recognized, that as a full time working parent, that my moments with them would be limited. Like most parents, I had to balance work, parenthood, household responsibilities—in other words, the laundry of life. How was I going to approach this time limited opportunity?
