I’m happy in anticipation of what’s coming in 2018

Read the headlines on any given day and it’s easy to become jaded and discouraged about tragic events happening all around the world. But despite the depressing headlines, there are many positive things to look forward to as we begin a brand-new year. I’m looking to 2018 as a fresh start, not looking at the past but focusing on a new chapter in my life waiting to be written. I will work on discarding preconceived notions of what others think, and recreate the person I want to be. Trying not to compare myself with others. Not listening to the thoughts …

“How heavy is this glass of water?”

glass-of water-blog

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”     Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter.

A very powerful Gratitude Practice

gratitude

“If the only prayer you say in your life is ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.” – Meister Eckhart It is that time of the year again, a time when we reflect and give thanks! This has been a roller-coaster year for me, but I’m feeling so grateful for the many experiences and opportunities of growth that I’ve lived on this 2014.

Taking Risks and Entrepreneurship – Interview with Seth Godin

Taking-Risks

Is 2014 the year that you take risks? Is it the year that you go for your goals- with the approach of the cost of failing is greater than discovering what works or what doesn’t?

Is the year where you go for it without being afraid of failing, or worse yet being afraid of what other people would say if you do fail. One of the things I like the most about this interview is …

Quote Theraphy – Mark Nepo

Mark-Nepo-3

Today I share with you some quotes and excerpts from Mark Nepo’s book entitled The Book of Awakening Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have. “We waste so much energy trying to cover up who we are when beneath every attitude is the want to be loved, and beneath every anger is a wound to be healed and beneath every sadness is the fear that there will not be enough time.
