No matter where you are in the world you can create a space to call your own. Enjoy a few moments to enjoy the now.

I heard a man speaking about life and talked about the memories of the past. All of the things behind us are just that, memories. We can not change them in any way. Many people may see the past differently through the eyes in which they view, but it is your memories which you see the journey which got you to now.

Capture the moments of the now and spend time recording what you want those to remember you to hold near and dear to their hearts. Once the now has passed by, it will be a memory retold by those who saw it with their eyes. You want more than just vision, but for others to feel, see and hear your now. Provide them with the depth of knowledge they need to understand your now.


My Two Rules is not just a singular remedy for specific challenges, but rather a comprehensive approach that equips both the young and the old with invaluable tools as they navigate through the journey of life. The true essence of its implementation lies in the art of inquiry, where one learns to ask probing questions, identify underlying problems, comprehend the power of choice, and grasp the weight of their consequences. Moreover, it teaches individuals about the significance of responsibility and the rewards that come with it.

The daily practice of working through the steps of problem-solving enables individuals to cultivate the essential skill of self-regulation, laying the foundation for emotional intelligence. They develop a keen sense of social awareness and understand the components that contribute to successful relationships. The benefits are vast and extend to various facets of life.

At the core of our teachings, we instill in children the profound distinction between reactions and responses. A reaction is driven by unchecked emotions, relinquishing control of our actions to the tumultuous winds of feeling. In contrast, a response is a thoughtful, intentional choice to maintain control by inquiring, seeking solutions, and finding the most fitting way to address a situation.

By emphasizing the importance of embracing the present moment with respect, reflection, and relaxation, My Two Rules imparts the art of cherishing the now. This practice fosters a mindset focused on solutions, gratitude, and positivity. Instead of being trapped in the quagmire of negativity or regret, individuals learn to navigate life's challenges with a hopeful outlook.

In summary, My Two Rules offers a holistic approach to personal development and emotional growth, applicable to various situations that arise in life's journey. It empowers individuals to become adept problem-solvers, emotionally intelligent beings, and champions of positive thinking. By mastering the art of responding thoughtfully and embracing the present moment, individuals gain a profound sense of control and contentment, enriching their lives and the lives of those around them.
