“Letting go” – to be able to follow your Joy, and the incredible focus it brings to life!!

Living mindfully isn’t enough if we aren’t also adding the secret element of joy, for that’s what brings us satisfaction!

I’ve written about following our joy in life, but purposefully choosing to do things which bring us joy really is the secret sauce to living a fulfilled life!

At the beginning of January this year Netflix started a brand new program called Tidying with Marie Kondo, which I was curious enough about to watch!

Wow! Marie has the whole concept of joy down to an art! Her area of expertise (tidying) has allowed her to observe that when people simplify their belongings and choose what brings them joy, then organize and display them, that the emotional benefits greatly impact their lives and their relationships by redefining what and how they choose to live!

Overcoming the Impossible! Here’s a few steps to make it happen!

Overcoming the Impossible!

What has your year been like? Are you preparing yourself to look at what resolutions you wish to put into place for the New Year?

What if I were to say that I don’t do resolutions anymore? Why not?

Well, by creating a list of resolutions we’re focusing our energies on what’s negative or not working in our lives. When those resolutions don’t pan out we then bathe ourselves in negative self-talk; do this year after year and our self-confidence slowly evaporates. I know that only too well. I kept putting myself through that process because I desperately wanted to heal, to grow, to change.

The toll it took on my self confidence became overwhelming, and rather than being able to move forward to where I wanted to be, I became stuck. So stuck that I felt I wouldn’t ever be able to move forward, because there was probably something so wrong with me that no matter how hard I tried, it would never happen.

So how is a person going to change, grow and move forward in life if this approach doesn’t work so well?

Well, a few years ago I heard of a brand new approach, which spoke to my yearning soul. This new way seemed focused on positivity, and echoed the new lessons in positivity I was learning from other sources.

What is that approach and how has it made a difference in my life?

Removing Inner Blocks Journal!

I’m excited to let you know about the new release of the “Removing Inner Blocks” Journal, the newest to my growing list of focused journals designed as tools to help you resolve life issues!

When we’ve gone through emotional and/or physical traumas, the internal damage can deeply affect us and act as barriers to our forward advancement or work against us subconsciously to sabotage our efforts, in spite of strong efforts in the beginning.

WHY would this happen to people who have otherwise set their foot on the path to success?

All about “The Power of Your Identity”!

I love writing about personal development and positivity, so can you imagine how cool it was for me to find out about “The Power of Your Identity” by Rock Thomas, and to know I went to high school with him? Yes, really!

What are the chances that two people from the same graduating class would be inspired to write personal development books? Pretty farfetched?

When is it UNREASONABLE to expect forgiveness?

I’ve been sitting on this article idea for a little while since reading Alexi Rose’s very heartfelt article regarding Forgiveness and why she has deep misgivings with the word. I too had similar misgivings when I was struggling through my own healing, and so I’d like to share some of her thoughts, as well as what I’ve learned going through my own process.

What is the purpose of an Anger Journal, and why you need one!

When I created the Anger Journal I knew I was creating a tool which would be much more than a notebook to dump thoughts!

After all, why would a person buy an anger journal if a simple notebook could suffice?

As with all my books, I’m creating tools. Tools to help a person deal with the immediate moment, and also as a way of gaining valuable insights for growth!

By asking guided questions, it becomes more than a dumping ground!

Gratitude, Joy and Synchronicity

When our hearts are burdened we struggle to feel positive about anything. So starting with small things is then crucial to becoming able to get strong enough to turn the light switch on in our minds and hearts and to send the shadows fleeing.

Joy. It can be tiny moments, but add them together they can become a bucketful, a lake full and even feel as expansive as an ocean! Finding moments of joy and holding onto them is very important!

Changing how I present myself!

There’s so many possible choices in how we present ourselves to the world: private life vs. business world; professional vs. informal; very informative vs. brief etc, I’ve tried on a few different approaches in my short years as an author and blogger, starting from my first site to this new one.
