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.

LOL! Ah, plans! Yes, I’ve spoken with people who “know all about writing, and how to create an amazing plan”! They’ve done their best to condescend to me, tell me how it “should be done”… Yet they haven’t actually sat down and started writing their book! Sigh!
As part of the Infinite Possibilities workshop (I believe it’s now the Love Your Life 30 Days Project) I did through http://www.TUT.com, Mike Dooley talked about changing the negative tapes in our minds which play back old unwanted and negative messages to us. Here’s what he said:
There’s a nuance of difference between making Resolutions and Setting Goals for your life!
(Useful for any time of the year!)
The very phrase “Making Resolutions” or “New Year’s Resolutions” seem to be loaded with GUILT for most of us who try (and then fail) to do what we set out to do. I believe it’s time to drop this expression from our vocabulary! …Oh and by all means don’t tell people what “resolutions” you’re planning for yourself, because apparently it works against us psychologically!
…So you want to save the world?
Here’s a way to connect with people who are passionate about doing just that!
Years ago when I was interested in quite a few new activities, I had some people trying to helpfully tell me I needed to choose one, maybe two of the activities which interested me the most, and focus only on those.
Their reasoning was that I couldn’t possibly do more things well, and that I’d be dispersing my energies too thin.

Unfortunately, we, collectively, haven’t seemed to make much progress towards seeing each other as individuals, rather than as a whole racial group.
Years ago I was a true skeptic when I heard about healing art, even though I was an artist myself!
As a Private art teacher I had seen the power of art as it transformed many people’s lives when people opened themselves to learning something new which brought them joy, yet I hadn’t directly experienced art as a tool for healing!
In hindsight it was obvious to me that I was denying the power art had in my own soul…
Love and caring are necessary components in helping someone to kick a drug habit, but unfortunately, they aren’t all what’s needed!
We’ve all known people who defer their happiness in the name of completing their goal, yet goals can shift imperceptibly, getting more elusive as time passes, leaving people stuck in a life habit of not enjoying their lives in the present time!
So, what are the steps we can follow to get to own our “Happiness”?
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
How easy is it to feel badly when we compare ourselves to others following a similar path?
Is it HEALTHY when we find our mind doing this, and how can we harness it?
