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!

Introducing a Resource page for my favorite Articles!

In creating my website http://www.tamarakulish.com, I wanted to migrate over only my best articles from my old site, so as I went through previous ones, I rewrote most of them, adding more meat or making them more current. I also started making a list, and now have organized them by category.

There’s now more than 50! Each link will take you directly to the article!

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.

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!

It’s all about LOVE! When judging hurts…

Here’s my little story of how judging someone badly can deeply affect them! It’s not fun to read.

Over fifteen years ago when I had attended the second of two evangelical churches, I was personally reduced to the point of feeling so worthless to walk on this earth or to breathe the air that I was searching for a way to quietly leave this life.

Why?

Accepting and Embracing the Depressed Side of Ourselves

It takes great courage to accept and even embrace the depressed part of ourselves!

Understandably Depression can rear its head when we go through tough times, but when it occurs during periods of time when “everything is going well” that makes it seem BAFFLING and so we REJECT it!

Please note: If you’ve been diagnosed with a mental illness, don’t take my words here as permission to remove yourself from your medication! This article isn’t speaking to clinical or chemical depression, but is talking about situational depression.

“You’re wrong about that!”

How many times has it happened that you’ve been taught to do something a certain way and someone then does it differently and you blurt out “You’re doing it wrong!”

How many times have you been sure of your facts and someone says something you’re sure is wrong and you’ve said “You’re wrong about that!” …only to be proven wrong later?
Just how DOES a person deal with this?
