From Victim to Victor

victim to victor

We all have our reasons to be and feel like a Victim. We have all been through situations that seem unfair and have had a negative effect on our lives. We all have had regrets and wished we could go back in time and change things. I am right there with you. I have had my fair share of feeling like a victim in my life. When I was in college, I decided that feeling like a victim and acting like a victim no longer served me. I wanted to prosper and to become a victor. I no longer wanted the negative situations (I call these "Negative Nasties") in my life to control me, my thoughts, actions, and words. I took charge of my life. Are you ready to do the same? I began writing this blog three years ago so that I could help people look at life differently. I write so that I can help people … [Read more...]

Misunderstood

misunderstood

Have you ever been misunderstood? Of course you have, we all have. When we are misunderstood, it doesn't feel good. Our words can get twisted and people can take things the wrong way. When this happens we get a chance to respond. We have a choice: either we can become defensive or we can explain our side with grace. The other day I was misunderstood: A woman emailed me about working with me. I explained that I was going on vacation and that if she requested to be alerted when I returned that I would do so. There is a form she needed to fill out. Well, when I returned she contacted me harshly saying she was going to work with someone else because I did not do what I said I was going to do. She thought I said I would contact her when I was home. I was very professional and explained … [Read more...]

Picking Leads to Festering

picking

I know this will sound disgusting to you, but it is a true fact: When you have a scrape or a sore or an open wound of some sort, it will heal a lot faster if you do not pick at it. If you do pick at it, it will fester. Picking leads to festering! Fester Noun: A sore that has become inflamed and formed pus Verb: Ripen and generate pus. I know it is sometimes hard to leave those sores and scabs alone. We think, "If I just pick it off then my skin will get back to normal much more quickly." Well, in fact, the opposite is true. When we pick, it will not only fester, it will take much longer to heal. If we do not take care of it and make sure it is clean, we can also develop an infection, which leads to much more pain and suffering. Our wound will sometimes bleed and the healing process will … [Read more...]

A Mental Experiment

mental

We put such limits on ourselves. We have these beliefs or preconceived notions that tend to control and stifle us in certain situations. I have a need to see. I do not like it when it is pitch black. I do not like being in a room with no windows. I do not like elevators. This can feel like a panic attack and sometimes manifests in the feeling of claustrophobia. This feeling is intensified when coupled with motion sickness. I believe we all feel certain things and have anxieties as a result of childhood or past experiences. We have a stamp on our subconscious that is there until we address it. My fear of not being able to see, I believe, is a result of two tragic things that occurred in my childhood: 1) My big brother (God I love him) thought it would be funny to zip me up in a … [Read more...]

Let’s Act Like Dogs

dogs

If you have ever had a dog, you know that the saying, "A dog is a man's best friend" is totally true. Dogs have so many great character traits, and that is how they came to be known as a best friend. The more I observe my dog, the more I want to be like her. In fact, if we all acted more like dogs, the world would be a much better and nicer place. Of course there are exceptions, as with everything, in that some dogs are mean and hurtful…but I am talking about your sweet family dog here. They have so many lessons to teach us if we take the time to observe. Here are some traits that I have observed in my dog: Loyal – Dogs are loyal like no other. They stand by your side, walk beside you, and will defend you. You can be confident that they will follow you through whatever you are going … [Read more...]
