Take the Good in Life and Reject the Rest by Saying No

Saying no is more powerful than you probably thing. When was the last time you watched a bee as it busily went from flower to flower collecting the nectar and pollen that would become the life saving energy source for the larvae back at the hive? While some bees are happy to collect pollen from many different plants and flowers, others specialize in only collecting from certain species. The honey produced in the hives of these specialist bees is highly sought after for its unique qualities and flavors.   In our life choices, we can be like the specialist honeybee, taking the good things offered to us in life, and rejecting the rest that will potentially harm us, or our quality of life. Learning to say no is a powerful tool that many of us rarely, if ever use.

You Are Worth It!

Do you sometimes feel like you are a work in progress?  Do you feel the drive to keep improving yourself and then find yourself in a spiral of despair because you just never feel like you measure up? For many people, this is their reality. Research has shown that this may be one of the most common causes of weight gain and emotional eating disorders.   All of us need to find freedom from the cycle that we are imperfect. While we all have room to grow and develop; the most freeing of all realities about ourselves that we need to absorb and accept is that we are a unique and beautiful human being. There is no one quite like us on this earth and there never will be. Once we accept this for ourselves, we can then look for ways to make the good in us better. Without this perspective, we will constantly strive to find some self-acceptance and won’t move much beyond this point in our life.   An old African proverb reminds us that if we don’t have any enemies inside us, the...

Are Dreams, Wishes and Goals the Same?

This is a question that you may have asked many times, but have not yet received a satisfying answer to. Well, wishes, dreams and goals are not at all the same. Their meanings may be similar, but there is a difference between the three of them.   I'm sure you have heard someone wishing something. I'm also quite sure you have wished for something yourself. A person can ask for thousands of wishes. It is something that one desires to have, but does not have it yet. There can be an endless list of wishes in a person’s life. It can be from buying a designer dress to almost anything.   On the other hand, a dream is something that a person visualizes to have someday. It is more like a goal that you visualize. Dreams give a person the motivation to stand up and move forward in life. Without dreams, a person’s life would have found no meaning or taste.   A goal is a target that a person sets in life. In other words, once obtained you can call it an achievement. Wishes,...
