Reflection: “Worrying is using your imagination to create something you don’t want.” ~ Abraham/Hicks
Are you what in an old cliché is called, ‘a worry wart.’ That is the title we bestowed upon kids in school way back in the 1950’s and 60’s who were anxious about every little thing. Those were the ones who never ran around and played at recess.
They stood off to the side, heads hung low, hands clasped together stressing over the quiz to take place after lunch; or the black mark on their new sneakers I on the other hand spent every moment of recess I could running, shouting, laughing, climbing, and having fun.
Key To Your Success In Life And Business
By Ruchira Agrawal
The term ‘authenticity’ according to Wikipedia means – “the degree to which one is true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character”, despite “external forces, pressures, and influences”.
Being Authentic really means ‘being real’, coming from a place of your core, of who you ‘really and truly’ are. When you come from that place, you vibrate at your best and brightest level. And when you illuminate at that level, you shine, not only in your life but also in your business.
And guess what, others can sense it and also get attracted to your radiance.

Sexual Harassment Entails Many Levels Of Grief And Loss
Dec 01, 2017 Steve Moeller The Grief Recovery Method
Hardly a day passes that another case of sexual harassment is not reported in the media. The list of those accused in the press includes figures in entertainment, politics, business, and even in the reporting media itself. What we need to keep in mind is that only those who are famous on some level are named in the media. This is an issue that is hardly limited to the rich and famous, but one that can be encountered on every level of society.
While the greatest amount of coverage has been devoted to listing those who have been so accused, very little has been said about the emotional pain and grief that is felt by the victims. It’s certainly time to address that issue.
What is sexual harassment?
How Long Does Grieving Take
Russell Friedman The Grief Recovery Method
One of the difficulties with hearing "time heals all wounds" is that sometimes people will then expect that, not only will "all wounds" be healed, but that it can be done in a set amount of time. — it doesn't; please read our blog post on this topic --
So how long does grieving take?
Grief recovery itself is an ongoing process that takes work and effort, with numerous steps along the way. And its duration is as unique as every individual, because the ways people deal with their losses are unique to them and their personal situations.
How Elizabeth Gilbert Learned to Transform Suffering Into Growth
By Elizabeth Gilbert
You can let life's inevitable torments cut you down—or you can use them to grow.
Many years ago, I met a man named Jim MacLaren, who had one of the most extraordinary life stories I'd ever heard. Jim had come into manhood with all the promise in the world: He'd been an ambitious student at Yale and was a talented athlete and handsome young actor in training.
Then one beautiful fall evening in New York City—one of those shimmering, velvety nights, he said, when everything seems possible—he was hit by a bus and lost part of his leg. But Jim was a survivor, and so he overcame his loss and transformed himself into a champion marathoner and Ironman athlete.
But wait—it doesn't end there.
How Love Helps Your Brain Recover From Grief
By Emily Rapp Black
What does it really take to be resilient? Emily Rapp Black finds out.
In early 2013, my son, Ronan, died of Tay-Sachs disease, a rare neurological disorder with no treatment or cure that slowly destroys the brain. He was diagnosed at 9 months old and lived for another two years.
During the last six weeks of his life, no longer able to swallow liquids, he received Pedialyte through a skinny tube in his nose. Two years later, I stood in a drugstore, staring at a shelf of Pedialyte, unable to reach for a bottle even though my young daughter, Charlotte, needed extra hydration during a nasty flu.
What to Do if You're Still Grieving
By Patrick O'Malley, PhD.
The author of Getting Grief Right—a grief counselor and grieving father of a child who died in infancy—shares his strategy for surviving deep, intimate loss.
You might not understand the degree to which your personality—your unique way of being in the world—plays into your way of grieving. You may not have allowed for the circumstances of your loss and their impact on you. The importance, power, and uniqueness of your loss is sometimes overshadowed by analyzing your grief and attempting to gauge its "correctness."
This is why it is so helpful to write or tell your grief story—an honest account of what happened to you and the one you lost. A grief story exposes the beauty, pain, and complexity of your emotions. How you approach writing your story is entirely up to you.
