Square in the Eye

Saturday, August 11th, 2018

Look doubt square in the eye the second it enters and think about the very best possible outcome.

The person you fear, the situation you fear, feel the strength you have within you.

When you think:

I’m not enough

Remember in the self belief you have.

You are not alone.

You have your faith and your belief in yourself.

That combination is stronger than anything that could come up against you.

You will always come home to you and that is a wonderful place to be.

The Moment

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

The moment you realize you’ve had it and you are done

with things the way they are

you’ll know what you need to do to make things better.

You’ll need to risk and perhaps

even take a bold action.

Once you stand up to the thing you

fear and look it in the eye

you will breathe a sigh of relief

because you’ve made it to a pivotal moment

and at that point you will feel strength and

calm and belief that you are on your way.

Cultivating Creativity

Monday, January 14th, 2013

I read recently that in order to cultivate creativity one condition needed is the willingness to be gullible which means the willingness to suspend belief and accept what comes from the inside without insisting on rationality or logic.

So trusting what you feel and need and hope for without judgement is not a bad thing.

A bad thing is to squash your feelings hopes and dreams by denying their existence.

So dream on!

Shyness

Shyness has a strange level of narcissism, a belief that how we look, how we perform, is truly important to other people.      Andre Dubus

Staying is Always an Option…So is Leaving

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Below is a link to a story about domestic violence. A situation that didn’t have to happen.

Victims are aware of the danger they put themselves in or potentially put themselves in. They know if domestic violence has occurred one two or more  times it will likely occur again.

Staying is always an option. When a victim stays they know more or less what they will be faced with. They accept that the potential is always there for   severe emotional trauma, physical injury, or death. They choose to stay because they fear leaving more than they fear the potential for continued physical, mental, emotional, sexual, or verbal abuse.

Leaving is also an option.

When a victim decides to leave they face the unknown.

They have to think about how they’re going to leave.

There will be fear–lots of it.

There will be lack of belief in their ability to make it happen but at some point if the decision is made to leave the wheels of motion must begin to roll.

Gathering information is a must.

Seeking out assistance from others is often needed.

Putting together a plan of action is mandatory. Checking it out with law enforcement, a counselor, clergyman or another trusted individual may be in order.

Sure it’s scary. Sure it’s doesn’t feel normal. Sure there is barely enough time and energy to make it through the day let alone—leave.

A better life, a brighter future, and a peaceful existence don’t just happen.

It takes a change.

 

 

Do You Want a Sugar Daddy?

Monday, April 18th, 2011

There are some out there who truly believe many women can’t fend for themselves. Even women question their ability to get back on their feet when the going gets tough.

In hard times it is difficult for all of us to bounce back. The thought of being rescued even if it’s a flicker of a thought, is very appealing.

Maybe it’s a cultural thing or maybe it’s conditioning but there are women who know no other way to take care of their needs when times are tough than to find a man to pull them out of whatever hole they’ve dug themselves into.

Harsh? Maybe, but it’s perfectly acceptable for many women and a segment of the male population that feel as long as a particular woman meets a man’s criteria–take care of her and she will take care of you…

So what is a sugar daddy?

The common belief is that this title belongs to a rich man who spends freely on a younger partner in a relationship. If you are the chosen woman in this role it is possible that you’re life will become more comfortable at least in the short run.

But, what about the long run? (more…)
