Is there anything more annoying than being told you should  do something? You should  floss every day.   You should  think positive thoughts.

Is Competition Bad for a Friendship?

Dear Meli, I have a friend that I like a lot. Well, most of the time. Here’s the thing: He’s really smart. And really handsome. And really into his spiritual practice. Not in a show-offy way. He’s just really good at everything he does. The only bad part is what happens to me when I’m […]

­­­The Power of an Unplugged Day

First of all, I just want to give a shout out to the Plugged. There are a lot of super-cool things about our current technology. I love it that I can text my wife and ask her if she wants anything at the store when I’m there. I love our Facebook community at OhMyGod Life […]
