How do you know if you’re in the right place?

Making a big move or even any transition in life can feel daunting!

You’ve known that this change was coming. You’ve researched it. You’ve asked people for advice. You may even have tested it out a little!

Yet, once you jump in with both feet and land in that new place, whatever it may be for you, once there you may feel some little nagging feelings of uncertainty!

Bringing Peace Of Mind into our lives…

Peace of mind… so essential for good emotional, spiritual and physical health! We cultivate it by choosing positive thoughts!

Don’t try to “chase away” negative thoughts, rather choose positive messages and keep repeating those! Trust is those thoughts, feel good about them, and keep selecting them when things don’t appear to go well in life!

I used to be a worrier, trying to anticipate everything before it happened and trying to prepare myself for everything! I didn’t have peace of mind! My mind was trying too hard to control every outcome by thinking of every possible outcome.

How to stop being Manipulated!

Tired of being manipulated? Tired of being toyed with for selfish purposes?

How do our “masters”, that is the narcissists keep us on a “leash” and push our buttons to keep us coming back?

One word. Fear.

Fear of losing their love. Fear of not getting their approval. Fear of their anger. Fear of their retribution… that’s revenge, or as they put it, punishment.

The dangers of Us VS Them thinking…

Too often lately I’ve been seeing memes which promote a strongly polarized view of the world.

You know the ones! Usually politically based, exceedingly liberal (weak) Dems contrasted with super macho Republicans.

On one hand we see a sniveling crybaby placed against a gun loving super macho dude.

We’re expected to CHOOSE, who we identify with MORE!

The dangers in that narrow yet totally extreme black & white mindset is that it really doesn’t take into account all the different shades of grey which exist in all of us.

Kudos not Kicks each year!

I love all the positive steps Etta outlines in her blog post “Be Calm, Create Your Action Plan”!

I stopped making resolutions a few years ago since they’re just self defeating! Inevitably we break them and then the cycle of guilt and negative self talk just reinforces the negative tapes that are already playing!
