Following “The Calling”

By momondays | Jul 8, 2017

When I spoke to the “Man Upstairs”, “God”, “Universe” (call it what you want) 14 years ago, I had no idea what I was asking for. I wanted my life to mean something, I wanted to make a difference, I wanted to matter. I had no idea that my “dark night of the soul” was…

When I was a little kid, I would always ask questions. I got really good at it too! So good in fact, that whenever I asked a question like “How does a TV work?” my father would have me read a book about and then write a short summary about what I had learned. Fast…

Practising Confronting “The Flinch”

By momondays | Mar 21, 2017

The book comes with several practical exercises for…
