Billingsley’s Bullets: Don’t allow the past to own you

It’s amazing how one episode can affect you, sometimes for years, sometimes for a lifetime. I remember once, when I was 8 or 9 years old, that I saw a relative of mine drunk. He was crawling across a lawn to his apartment in the Richmond Housing Projects. A small crowd started to gather to […]

Billingsley’s Bullets: You don’t have to fight to win

In his book “Change Your Thoughts – Change Your Life,” Dr. Wayne Dyer states the following, “Don’t fight colds, illnesses or even serious afflictions.

Billingsley’s Bullets: Is your marriage silent?

Marriages where there is a lot of talking and listening seem to fare better than silent marriages. When I make this statement, I am talking about positive talking and listening.

Billingsley’s Bullets: You decide how old you feel

Somewhere along the line, when you are in your 60s, you have to decide if the aging process will send you backwards or forwards; or will you be content to stay where you are physically and mentally? In the 60s it becomes clear that you are not as fast or as strong as you would […]
