Teachable Moments

  • The darkness of pain (depression, fear) opens us up. It’s a teacher for being compassionate to ourselves and others who are going through difficult times.
  • Prayer, meditation, and asking for help are three things you can do when you are sitting with something heavy and you feel stuck.
  • Focus on what truly matters to you. At some point your time will come to an end. When you live life from a perception of knowing your time is limited, are you going to make different choices?

Pearls of Wisdom

  • How much of life are you living by reacting to someone else’s rules as compared to living from your own intuition?
  • Too often we hold ourselves back from doing certain things because of our internal criticisms and judgments. We get caught up with “there’s a right way” which is like an internal “stop” sign.
  • Be gentle with yourself. Only go as fast as the slowest part of you feels safe to go.
  • A mindset focused on growth is a result of having high healthy expectations and a strong sense of self nurturance.
  • Fear becomes problematic when we deny it. The next time you’re afraid, try embracing it, breathing into it, feel it, and allow ourselves to move through it.
