“What you resist persists. And what you look at, disappears.” Neale Donald Walsch
This is an interesting quote. When we ignore a situation or problem it will continue and grow out of control, however if we deal with the problem or situation it will go away. I understand that it is hard to communicate with others regarding difficult situations but the problem or situation will enhance and resentment will build. It is better to talk with that particular person than to gossip behind their back and make the dilemma worse. Why do you think this quote makes so much sense? Thinking the predicament is just going to miraculously disappear will not happen unless you take action to resolve it? My wish for anyone that has something happening which is causing them anxiety is to start by talking to the person or people in a calm manner to resolve it. Have some solutions ready to resolve it. You will feel so much better once it is discussed and you are working towards a resolution. Don’t let it continue to grow out of control.
How do you build trust with others? This is a question that is truly personal and viewed differently with each individual. Life experiences shape us on how we trust others. Trust is like any relationship it takes time to form and requires commitment. What does trust mean to you? Why is trust so important to all relationships whether it is a spouse, partner, parent, child, friend, co-worker or your boss?
Act as if it were impossible to fail. ~ Dorothea Brande
When looking up at the sky through the trees it is a wonder how long they have been alive. Through all the different seasons with weather conditions of hot, cold, windy, lightning, rain, hail, snow, drought, possibly even fire and they are still thriving. We all go through storms in life. “If we act as if it were impossible to fail” we can withstand the storms and flourish as these trees. My wish for all who are in the middle of a storm in life is to look up at the trees, keep your head up high and have faith in the impossible. ~ Patti
We all have dreams we would like to accomplish. Some are small steps along the path and others are large stepping stones. As we walk down the path sometimes we stop, look around and wonder am I heading in the right direction. Other times we keep stepping forward at a slow pace. Then there are times we are running so fast on the path we forget to breathe. Which path are you on? Is the path heading towards what you really want in life or is the path going in the opposite direction?
Hiring a coach may inspire you to follow the path of your dreams.
Questions: Which direction are you going? Is it time for a change?

Day 17 of 30 day blogging challenge ~ What is your LIFELINE?
What is your LIFELINE?
The definition of lifeline per the Merriam-Webster dictionary:
Something which provides help or support that is needed for success or survival
A rope used for saving the life of someone (such as someone who has fallen into water)
Per the thesaurus other words for Lifeline are: salvation, link, help, support, helping hand or sustenance.
In our lives there are people who have supported us in our careers, school, family life, spiritual life and health. We all have had times when we needed some kind of support. Who were these lifelines? How did they help you? How did you express your appreciation? Did you display any appreciation? Are you a lifeline to others? If not, why not? Helping others is a great virtue. When you give support to other you should not expect anything back in return. Provide assistance with a giving heart. 🙂
Question: How can you assist someone today with a giving heart?
“We resist what we don’t want to let go of, and what we don’t want to let go of is what we truly believe.” Neale Donald Walsch
This is an interesting quote. What does it really mean? I have been reflecting on this quote. Sometimes, we don’t want to see what is truly in front of us. It is easier to hold tight to what we used to have even when there is nothing to hold onto. Until we let go of it we can’t have something better.
What are you holding onto that is stopping you from having something better?
“Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.” Chinese Proverb

Question: What are you going to do this weekend to relax and have some fun?

“Happiness is when, what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” Mahatma Gandhi
This is one of my favorite quotes. Happiness and harmony remind me to enjoy and admire the beauty around oneself. In this photograph above it is of a peacock crossing a country road. Imagine making up a story that would go with this photograph. Look at every situation with “what you think, what you say, and what you do”, as if it were the last day of your life.
