An Empowering 7 Step Process To Deal With Bullies Online
By Omtimes Magazine
3 Actions You Can Take To Feel Better By Emma-Louise Elsey
It seems that when we’re ‘online’, people say out loud all the things they might just THINK if we met in person. Social graces disappear and we get a mean, hurtful or abusive comment-slap when we least expect it.
Why do so many people make nasty comments online? Well, when we’re online, there’s a barrier that means we can’t see the humanity of the other person. When they write that nasty comment they’re talking to a machine or a photograph, but not YOU.
Online bullies often have no idea who you are, where you’re coming from – and little or no real idea of the impact of their comments.
8 Crucial Insights For Creating A Rich Life
The Spirit of Prosperity By Colette Baron-Reid
Did you know that you live in an abundant universe where prosperity and wealth are your birthright? You do! Do you have faith that you’re supported, no matter your present circumstances? You are!
I know it’s sometimes hard to see the abundance in our lives, especially in today’s changing world where few of us have been untouched by economic concerns.
But, even during tough times, we still have everything we need and more. In fact, prosperity can be ours no matter what’s going on in our lives and around us. It’s all a matter of the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs we CHOOSE to live by.
Lessons For Embracing Transitions
By Andrew Pacholyk, MS L.A
Our lives are made up of the building blocks of change. Transitions create the person we must grow to be. Transition happens for a reason. That reason is to allow us possibilities we may not have seen in the first place. This can be traumatic or it can be less so.
The single most important point you can make about transitions are that in most cases it’s not what faces you that’s the problem, it’s how you react to it.
How you react is determined by how you perceive a particular change. The Chinese word for crisis is “weiji”. Two characters that separately mean danger and opportunity.
Victimhood Is Not A ‘Hood You Want To Live In
OmTimes Magazine By Jenny Griffin
It’s okay to visit once in a while, but setting up house? Not a good idea. Not only is it hard to live there, but it’s even harder to leave. You can’t sell a house in Victimhood, it’s a neighborhood filled with abandoned homes and abandoned dreams.
Victimhood saps us of our personal power and allows us to stop taking responsibility for ourselves and the path we walk. It turns us into people who expect others to care for us because somewhere along the way we’ve lost the knowledge of what it takes to care for ourselves.
In fact, we’ve traded that knowledge for the label of victim. Somewhere inside, that knowledge is waiting to be (re)awakened.
The (Dark) Art Of Sarcasm
OMTimes Magazine By Victoria Pendragon
SarcasmIt’s long been said that the pen is mightier than the sword and in no use of language is that truism more evident than in the use of sarcasm. The energy of sarcasm, the feeling that fuels the power of sarcasm is anger, pure and simple.
Not necessarily anger about or around the target of the sarcastic remark, just anger itself, anger that has been internalized and allowed to steep, usually for years, anger that has never been met face to face, never been dealt with properly, and so has had to find an outlet for itself; it does so at the expense not only of others but also at the expense of the person uttering the scathing remarks.
Three Risks Worth Taking
OMTimes Magazine By Cristina Smith
“And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”. -Anaïs Nin risks-worth-takingThere is nothing quite like the comfort of your own world.
Everything is going along how you think it should be. You know exactly how things are and what to expect from yourself and those around you. At least most of the time.
And then, all of a sudden, something changes. And you didn’t have anything to say about it. And you don’t really like it at all.
BAM – Life Just Changed – 3 Tips To Go With The Flow! BAM_Change
By OMTimes Team By Robin Marvel
May 30, 2013
If there is one thing that life will teach you over and over, it is to expect the unexpected. It is inevitable that change will present itself at each chance it gets, reminding you that the universe is in control. You will be headed in a direction with gusto, and BAM… life changes your course.
This creates fear in us because we tend to fear change. It can leave us stagnant where we are, afraid to move forward. This fear must be faced so we can carry on with our lives. Be prepared, life is full of twists and turns that will surprise you in many ways; you will change directions a million times but in all of this, you will be moving toward your purpose—a purpose you have written into your blueprint of life.
In those moments that you feel lost, when life is challenging you and to give up would be the easiest thing to do, these are the moments where the most change is taking place. You are growing and expanding toward the ultimate goal of your journey.
