Are you behind the 8 ball?

  Where are you?!   Do you constantly feel like you have to keep up, get up or buck up? Are you getting in your own way? Are you your own worst enemy? Do you say things like “I'm hopeless”, “I'm a failure”, “I'm so stupid”, “___ will never like me”   If you said 'Yes' to even one of those questions or statements, you could be guilty of Negative Self Talk. Consciously or unconsciously, we spit out words that have a 'negative' connotation, and are actually derogatory. It's a constant slip that keeps people spinning out of control and frustrated.   The best way to make any change is Awareness. Raise your level of awareness to how much destructive behavior you elicit on regular basis by noting it! Thoughts, words and action should be counted. You'll be surprised how much shit you talk to yourself, lol. Relate to this post?  Sign up for my email list & stay...

F^@$ the light at the end of the tunnel

Are you the 10th candle on the birthday cake for the kid about to go into double digits?  The 22nd bulb on a  Broadway marquee or the tail end of a fireworks finale.  A glow stick or those wands...

Does making a big change in your life scare the shit out of you?

Does making a big change in your life scare the shit out of you? Would you rather keep doing things half assed or go full out? "Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free." Jim Morrison Go ahead and name it, label it - it's your shit!  You might as well spell it out for yourself, and make it as big as possible cuz it's getting in your way.  You've already given it life in your head, so why not on paper? Take a few minutes to '5Sense'™ and do some writing around this.  Does your fear look dark and foreboding to you or just hazy?  If it had a smell would it be dead fish or flowers?  If you could hold it and touch it, would it be hard like a stone or soft like a jelly fish waiting to sting you?  Is...
