What is Addiction … ?

THIS is such a critical shift in perspective! These three little minutes may alter the way you see it.  And when we ‘see’ the problem with new eyes … the solution looks very different than our current approach.

I’m committed to being part of the solution, Karen

    Thank you, Karen, for posting that. Brené Brown’s new book, Rising Strong, is about “the pain” … recognizing it, reckoning, and recovering. First step is simply being able to recognize when we have been hijacked by emotions. The physical and mental signs. Most people just get washed away by the pain. Recognizing is such a powerful tool! And like the video said … COMPASSION is a vital element to the process. Seeking out those who have it and learning to have it for ourselves. I, too, am committed to the solution!

      Thanks for sharing more about Brene’s new book Barbie! I wasn’t sure what it was about so you’ve inspired my interest in getting it! And yes … compassion … a powerful answer to whatever the question might be! 💛

    Thank you, Karen. And I ditto Coach Barbie! I, too, and committed to the solution and very excited about Brené Brown’s new research and book. I can still hear Debbie Ford’s voice [and can hear it any time in The Shadow Effect] “what you can’t be with won’t let you be”.

My Tributes: Better Because of You ...

An Advent of Love … Better Because I’m bringing You Home For Christmas Momma!

Those of you who read my “Better Because you Spared Me …” blog will already be aware that Christmas 2019 marks the 30th Anniversary of my Mom’s passing. You will also know that I didn’t even realize the loss of my Mom had remained so unprocessed … until the words, tears and unspoken grief spilled […]

Better Because You Spared Me …

Do you suppose this is true?? I am purposely pondering this possibility because … I don’t even know the man.  I do know who he is, though. And because we have lived in the same small, rural community for the past quarter of a century, I have seen him out and about every now and […]

Better Because of your Shining Spirit Kori!

Better Because of your Shining Spirit Kori!

My first introduction to the sweetness of Kori’s spirit was not even in person.  Although we had never before met … many, many years ago when I was in charge of soliciting donations for something … she voluntarily dropped off a donation for our cause. Who does that?? Unsolicited?  I suspected, in that moment, that […]

The World is a Better Place Because of You … Fatemeh!

I was inspired to become a social worker given my passionate commitment to help people ‘live a great life anyway’ … despite all the people, circumstances and situations that often compromise our best efforts to do so.  As such, I attempt do so in a variety of ways. I am a counsellor working with people […]
