Blog #15    Oct 29/15 

Not sure where this month has gone! Each day is filled with schedules, creating memories, self-care and of course spending time outside.

In the last two weeks there’s been a lot of changes both with our government and our personal life.  Changes either makes you “Happy, Sad, Anxious or Fearful”. The key to change is that we are totally in control of how “Change” affects us.

We’ve all done it at sometime in our life and allowed the negative feelings to surface and control how we deal with change. I must admit I allowed “FEAR” to control a lot of my situations in the past.  But here’s what I learned.

First of all I needed to realize I wasn’t in control but I was in control of my feelings and actions. Life throws situations in our way. Good and Bad. I totally believe that there’s a High Power that is much smarter than me and has the bigger picture.

2nd I needed to understand that when situations arise I needed to take care of myself first so I was healthy enough to help others. I needed to be aware of my energy levels and not stay in the extreme high mode for long.

3rd I needed to always stay close to nature and take moments to just stop and appreciate what was right around me.

4th I needed to listen to what my inner wisdom was trying to communicate to me. Sometimes that’s the hard one. But I’ve learned even in difficult situations to listen to what some people would call their gut feeling. It has never lead me down the wrong path.

5th I also realized that even in bad situations there was always something positive that came out of it. Even if it was just a hug from someone.

6th I also realized I will face “Fear” again,  again but I now know I have the tools to deal with the “Fear”  

So take a moment and look at the "Changes" you are facing in your life. Then see whether "Fear" is a part of that "Change".  Then visualize how it looks without that “Fear”.  Then see if you can move forward in more positive energy.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

“To Judge meaning: To determine or declare after consideration or deliberation”

I was actually surprised with the defn on “To Judge”. How many times are we judging people or things? Do we actually “declare after consideration or deliberation”?

This past weekend after celebrating “Thanksgiving” I started looking at the various media reports on Facebook, Tweeter, newspaper etc... I think we’ve allowed “To Judge” as part of our normal life and don’t realize that “To Judge” in a negative way creates a major ripple effect on other people’s lives which can be very hurtful.

As a read some of the comments on various topics I asked myself did these people just make a comment so they could see it on a public forum or did they really intentionally want to hurt many people?

What if instead we had more comments on topics that were positive? What would happen with the energy and attitudes of people?

I’m just throwing out thoughts hoping to maybe get people to think before reacting.

This weekend as we sat around sharing and creating memories with our families a family from my hometown where I grew up lost their 20 yr old daughter in a car accident. As I read some of the comments from people posting on some of the newspapers which were “Judging”,  I wondered again whether they thought about the family and friends of the 20 yr old girl, or about the RCMP and EMT’s which were involved or how about the family and friends of the second driver who’s in hospital and has a long road ahead of him.

As I said before when we JUDGE others or things we create a ripple effect. Making comments publicly on media is pretty safe because it’s not in person but it does make a difference to others.

So for this week how about we all stop and think before we push the “POST” or “SEND” button and make sure we’re creating more “POSITIVE’ ripple effects in people’s lives.

For this week I wish for all of you good energy, time spent with family and friends creating amazing memories and for you to enjoy each moment of your day.

We are just a few days away from the Canadian Thanksgiving Celebration.

I was thinking this morning aren’t we an interesting group of people that we have lots of holidays to celebration various events.

Can you imagine what would happen if every day we actually took time to be Thankful and Grateful for something in our lives. Let’s say you started each waking moment with that thought. Would your attitude throughout the day be better? Would you greet your family, friends, co-workers and strangers with a happier “Good Morning!”

Each moment when I walk into my office I have a sign that says “How Much Better Can it Get!”.  Just saying those words no matter how I’m feeling or what is happening in my life, it makes me take a moment to realize I’m very grateful.

What are you Thankful for this Thanksgiving?

I’m Thankful for:
-the journey I’m having in life

-the amazing husband that has been with me on our crazy journey of ups and downs (Celebrating 35 years this month!!)

-the children that we had, and their spouses and the wonderful grandkids they have giving me. (Proud Grandma!!)

-all the rough times, because it made me who I am today and it’s allowed me to share and help others in their journey

-all the individuals that I’ve met along the way. What a journey it’s been and will continue to be.

-the incredible learning and experiencing of my spirituality and healing energy

May you take the opportunity each day to be Thankful for all that is and will be.

Happy Thanksgiving.
