In a Bad Mood? – Try These Five Steps to Feel Better

I have two moods. One is Roy, rollicking Roy, the wild ride of a mood. And Pam, sediment Pam, who stands on the shore and sobs… Sometimes the tide is in, sometimes it’s out.

— Carrie Fisher

Moods.  We all have them.  They can be uplifting and encouraging.  They can be reals downers, too.

Moods are one of the many factors that can assist us in achieving our 2013 goals… or they can get in the way.

More than once, I’ve made decisions based on where I am (how I feel) vs. where I want to go (what I want to accomplish).  No matter how motivating the goal was when I set it, if I’m feeling crummy – physically or emotionally -  I usually choose something that will Continue reading » In a Bad Mood? – Try These Five Steps to Feel Better

Will Power – Won’t

The more things you do, the more you can do.

— Lucille Ball

Have you ever noticed how hard it is to pass up temptation when it’s there all the time?

Some of this problem is that once we decide that we’d really like that donut or mocha or french fry, it seems that they’re everywhere.  So, we don’t have to pass up the temptation once.  We have to keep making the same decision over and over.

It’s the same as the phenomenon of deciding to buy a red Explorer and then seeing Continue reading » Will Power – Won’t

Mindfulness

Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.

— Mother Teresa

I have a hard time staying in the present moment.  Maybe, you do too.  For me, this is a problem partially because the more distracted I am the less conscious I am about what’s going on in my life.  About a week and a half ago, I misplaced my rosary.  I had found it years ago and always carried it when I traveled and lately had been carrying it in my pocket to remind me of who I wanted to be.  If I unconsciously put my hand in my shorts/jeans/slacks pocket, it broke my attention to what was going on and reminded me that I had a responsibility to be a loving person – in a Christian sense.  There were times when my Continue reading » Mindfulness

Who’s Pushing Your Buttons?

If someone or something pushes your buttons – what happens next?

Between stimulus and response there is a space.
In that space is our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

— Viktor E. Frankl

Some folks, especially those closest to us, know exactly what they can do to get us to react – they know just which buttons will push us over the edge.  In situations like that, do you often snap?  If so, your Continue reading » Who’s Pushing Your Buttons?

Habit is necessary; it is the habit of having habits, of turning a trail into a rut, that must be incessantly fought against if one is to remain alive.

— Edith Wharton

I am constantly surprised by what I have to relearn, over and over again.  Last weekend, was one of those surprising weekends.

Sunday was one of those days that tested my fortitude as a doggy mommy.  The first time we went out, AccuWeather informed me that it was 48° with a real feel of 54°.  So, I bundled up to take her out for the morning empty the dog exercise and rushed back inside.  I had no intention of Continue reading » Amazing!
