Life Matters

Increasing your value

How much do you value yourself? I believe one of the greatest challenges in life is learning your net worth and appreciating every aspect of your authentic being. We start scrutinizing ourselves by placing our lives under a microscope - especially when things do not go the way we want them to go.

Are you really communicating?

Sometimes the communication process can be easily skewed by how well we "listen". The truth is that we get so passionate about something that we miss out on an opportunity to listen to what is happening around us. We talk a lot to convey our message, but because we are stuck in "communication" mode, we miss the potential to hear what may be available to us.

How is your perception?

What we may believe to be initially true may not be what we think it is at all. It is very interesting how many varied perspectives individuals may have on the exact identical object. If you look at the image to the left, what do you see? Some of you may see a young woman, some of you may quickly identify the elderly lady.

Let your New Year begin with Forgiveness

The nicest part about going into the New Years is that you are allowed another chance to start fresh. This is why, symbolically, the New Year is represented by a newborn. As you rang in 2014, were your mind and heart in the right place? If you are still carrying heavy emotional baggage and negative energy with you now, it will follow you throughout this New Year. Don't do this to yourself! The best antidote for feelings of resentment, regret, anger and jealousy is forgiveness.

Let courage and strength be your New Years Resolution!

WOW! What a great holiday I had with new and old friends visiting for the holidays. There were 14 of us all together spending time going for long walks, playing games, and sitting around talking and laughing. It was a time of just relaxing and enjoying one another. The Holidays are meant to bring forth laughter and joy to all of us but sometimes, that doesn't happen for one reason or another.
