3 Questions that keeps me challenged, alive and on purpose:

What can I do today to make me happy?

What can I do today to make my family members happy?

What can I do today to make the world a better place?


Working it out

Posted by Linda

Conflict! There are plenty of opportunities to work out conflict in these highly agitated times. Or Not! I have read so many stories of people not speaking to family members any more, or of friendships and even marriages breaking apart over different ideas about what is going on in our political atmosphere these days. It’s really interesting how one man, albeit a very powerful, one can create such calamity. Many people, including myself, have very strong opinions about how our country is being run and by whom. Most of my friends and I agree about the subject in question, but not everyone and not every family member.

When it comes to a disagreement with someone that I don’t know very well, I might choose to let them go, but it has to be a fairly major difference, most likely in the area of honor or integrity. After all, we have heard so many times not to surround ourselves with toxic people. Under normal circumstances, the need to distance ourselves doesn’t happen very often, but it’s different now, with raw and strong emotions being elicited in our country.

However, I love a few of the people with whom I disagree. What is the best way to deal with this situation. First, I might feel irritated and if I allowed the irritation to continue, it could eventually lead to an irreversible break up of our relationship. So I learn the art of self soothing and eventually I can think clearly enough to make a decision about the relationship. If I choose to stay, I remind myself first, that this is a part of the way that they are, and that there are many other parts that I appreciate and love. And then, taking my time, and not being controlled by fear or anger, I decide.

Peace and love, that is my heart’s desire. Please contact me if you would like assistance finding yours.

If you have a hard time with making a decision about something, ask yourself if it does matter in 5 years from now. If it does, act on it. If not relax!

The next time you find yourself in an argument, rather than defend your position, see if you can see the other point of view first.

Reflections on Your Journey:The beautiful Maldives

General Guidelines:

One of the first and most important exercises is to find out WHAT you believe. Put several full sheets of paper in your notebook, and label each one at the top:


-Men  – Women  –  Myself  – Relationships  –  Commitment  –  Marriage   – Family

-Children  – Work  –  Money  – Prosperity  –  Investments  – Health  – Aging   – Death

These beliefs are the internal, subconscious rules you live your life by. You cannot make positive changes in your life until you can recognize the negative beliefs you hold.

When all of the lists are more or less completed, read them over.  Mark with a star each belief that is nourishing and supportive of you. These beliefs are the ones you want to keep and reinforce.

Mark with a check each belief that is negative and detrimental to your goals. These are the beliefs that have been holding you back from being all that you can be. These are the beliefs you want to erase and reprogram.
