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 ...

Better Because of You … and … my 20 plus 2 years with FCSS!

I was scheduled to receive my 20 year long service recognition award at an agency function on Saturday, January 12 … but … because I won’t be at the gathering, I had arranged for my colleagues to accept it on my behalf.  They agreed to record the moment, so that I too, could listen to […]

Better Because of “The Vow” … By Debbie Ford

Perhaps 2018 is the year for us to make this impeccable vow to ourselves and for ourselves.  In this short 4 minutes … Debbie Ford invites each and every one of us to stand in the best expression of who we can be in the world. We are all so much better for the legacy […]

Better Because of Our 13 Days …

She’d been in my life for 43 years.  For much longer than my own mom … who died when I was 31.  I remember when she excitedly extended her hand to show me her rings. I had travelled 1195 kilometers to visit with her and my dad. Sick. I felt entirely sick. She never said […]

Teresa – A Fond Tribute to your Spectacular Sparkle and Gregarious Grit!

The last time I saw her was a few years back.  We had been waiting in line for quite some time and were just being seated at our table at the IHOP that had recently opened in Lethbridge. Teresa had already eaten and was just leaving … but after enjoying one of her big warm […]

The Days are So Much Better when they Start With a Smile …

He is an oilfield consultant and heavy equipment operator.  He loves his job.  Sometimes I tease that he gets paid to play in the dirt! He doesn’t just move dirt … he creates works of art.   His approach to his construction […]
