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?

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!

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.
