5 Things Confident Women Know (Useful to Guys As Well)

Good news: You don’t have to “believe in yourself” to be confident. In fact, it’s optimal that you don’t. The macho, ego-centric kind of confidence is so 20th-century.

Karma and Other Bad Reasons to Become A Vegetarian

I was a vegetarian for half of my 20s. At that time, to me being a vegetarian simply meant you were on a diet, and I was never not on a diet. Being a vegetarian was especially convenient when sitting in a restaurant with a bunch of people, where I would be under peer pressure to participate in eating activities.… Read more →

How to Find the Important People in Your Life

There are two opposite camps when it comes to how to find those who will end up playing a large role in your life– the mentor, the mate, the good boss, the investor in your venture, the dog walker who’ll keep your neurotic pup exhausted.

My 7 Day Gratitude Challenge

Want to feel happier? Try thinking of something you’re grateful for every day when you get up and when you go to bed. It’s very effective and sounds so simple.

What Being Spiritual is NOT about

On this week’s BananaOnFire, I give you a tour around my altar at home. It used to be my favorite place in the house and I thought things I placed on there symbolized what being spiritual was all about. I couldn’t be more wrong. When we identify with the rituals, the tools, the belief system of our spirituality too much,… Read more →

The Jolly Good Fellow’s Account of Reincarnation

Last week I went to visit my friend Frances in the stunning Mount Shasta.

How to Make Someone Love You

It’s a full-time job that most of us do 24 hours a day and 7 days a week– to make other people love us. You may not realize what you are doing.

Women, Own Your Freedom!

A while ago, I bumped into a friend at a lunch party. She’s about my age, has recently got married and had a baby.

After she left us to get… Read more →

Why Being Professional Sucks and How to Correct It

If you ever want to be more than mediocre in your career, then being professional is useless. I’m not talking about having the skills and know-hows to do your job.
