Self-Talk: What Do You Have to Say?


While most of us are probably exercising a little or watching what we’re eating, how many of us are actually paying attention to the mental messages that we give ourselves? Yet, our self-talk has a direct influence on our self-esteem, happiness and productivity.

How Self-Aware are You?

Jahari 4Think you’ve got it all figured out? Think again!  We all have blind spots that we aren’t aware of. The concept is known as The Jahari Window and outlines the four different aspects of awareness within each individual. It’s an interesting concept.

Comfort in Challenging Times

Incidents like the Las Vegas shooting can really shake our sense of safety. I find myself searching for a greater meaning in such events. However, today I found comfort in an unlikely place – through this video posted on Facebook. I don’t know the artist personally but I found the song’s message to be powerful and emotion evoking. Please listen to “A Good Life” in it’s entirety – I think there’s a simple truth contained within. (I hope Michael Tomlinson won’t mind me sharing his work.) Blessings to all!
