Arm and Empower Yourself for Positive Change

How many people know that if you don’t believe in yourself, it is difficult for anyone else to believe in you. I wonder sometimes why people have such negative and defeatist views of themselves. Sure, the negative things that people say about you are easier to believe. But if you had to consider the facts associated with what someone says about you, how true would that be. Repeating the negative stuff in your head over and over will make anyone overtime believe that what you are telling yourself is true. You know what I mean, crap like “I’m not smart enough”, “I’m not good enough”, “I don’t deserve to be happy”, “I should accept my life as it is although I...
Journaling Power: Four Cornerstones of Balance
close
I am a firm believer that balance of life is important. As I have written in previous articles, those life areas for me are my four cornerstones – physical, spiritual, financial, and emotional. If you are balanced, you are actively paying attention to yourself and your goals in these important life areas. Would you agree that if these areas are critical to your balance of life, the basis of how you should journal should line up with these areas. To assist you in establishing your plan goals, answer the questions below in your journal. PHYSICAL SPIRITUAL What are your activities and eating/intake goals?   It is important to have regular physical activity...

"Sonic Soul" by Nichole Esala If I listen closely, I can make out two violins dancing on the breeze. One seems to be coming from the east and the other from the west. They were two strangers in the night swept away by each other's song! They couldn't explain what was driving them together that night, all they knew was they wouldn't put up a fight. All I could do was throw open my window to capture the romance floating on the seductive breeze, with such grace and ease.     ~ Moon Face ~ by Angela Kedrowski Daddy drives. Mom sits beside you, gazing in the dark at your small moon face. Dim. Just moonlight, your features are...

Poetic Expression: Lyrical Therapy
close
We all know that words are powerful. You have all heard or even sang the phrase as children “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”. Well that phrase is a flat out lie. Negative words can be extremely harmful – spoken to yourself or to others. So it stands to reason that words can also be great healers and effective motivators. The healing effect of words has long been recognized. Throughout time, words have been used to help uplift the mental and emotional health of patients. We have talked about journaling to capture your thoughts and bringing clarity to swirling imageries in your head. But what about making those words expressive and lyrically...
Creativity is a process – not a sprint
close
  Henry David Thoreau said “Write while the heat is in you. The writer who postpones the recording of his thoughts uses an iron which has cooled to burn a hole with. He cannot inflame the minds of his audience.” Journaling is a great tool to assist in the process of creating. Whether you are a writer of fiction or non-fiction books, newspaper, dramatic or humorous plays, or my personal favorite of poetry, a journal can help you capture ideas while the iron still scorches with impact for your audience. Your creative writing journal can be the source of many incredible creative pellets. It can be a source of impactful details to add color and texture to a story. It can be a...

Resolving to Accomplish your New Year’s Goals... Most people resolve to do new things in the new year. However, that same majority at the end of the year look back over the year and realize that they did not accomplish their goals. Why is that? When setting goals, it is critical to set goals that are achievable – yes, I said it – be realistic with yourself. Studies indicate that it takes over 60 days to form a new habit or engrain a new process in the DNA. When setting goals, or resolving to do something new, it is so important to make sure that it provides you direction and that it is specific to you. Keeping it simple, I want to share four thoughts about setting your...

Tipping Life’s Scale in Your Favor... A 23-year old girl arrived to her office just like any other morning – ready for the challenges of the day. “Ugh?!” she says “what’s going on?!” as she doubles over in excruciating pain. Her husband is called to pick her up because her manager becomes increasingly concerned. The young lady is quite frightened herself. I mean wouldn’t you be too if you were 23-years old and had never had any type of health issues – for goodness sakes. Did anyone guess this 23-year old was me. I was working in the Midwest, my first job immediately after graduating from college. As a matter of fact, I graduated and received my Bachelors in 3-years and...

A Mental Power Tool... I have personally been journaling over 20 years. Journaling is not a new concept. Believe it or not there is growing evidence to support the notion that journaling has a positive impact on physical well-being. Many studies indicate that regular journaling boost immune cells. What I have personally experienced is journaling about stressful events helps to better deal with them, thus reducing the impact of these stressors on your physical health. Also, writing about the joyful events serve as great equalizers to go back and read on days that are full of stressors. Writing removes mental blocks and allows you to use more of your brainpower to better understand...
