We’ve all heard this expression countless times. But have you ever really thought about your words and your actions towards others? We could have the best intentions with our words but our actions may not be demonstrating this. In this week’s episode I give examples and encourage you to stretch your mind and really look within to whether your actions are reflecting your words.
We talk to ourselves all day long, with our thoughts. And, what we tell ourselves has an impact on our life. Have you ever really taken an inventory of what you tell yourself?

Spend the next 10 minutes and listen how you can life yourself up more and how to get rid of thoughts that tear you down.
This week’s quote is about the control we give to others when we are angry with them.

Learn how to have more peace and be in control of YOU.
HALT is an acronym that stands for Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired. In this week’s podcast I encourage you to stretch your mind and think about referring to this acronym before you make any decisions.

An important lesson that can help us gain more clarity and lead a more peaceful life.

Byron Katie said recently in an interview I was listening to “We’re mentally running the world and we’re asleep to our own”. This quote made me think about how often our thoughts are about others.

In this weeks podcast we look at our problems and learn ways we can not only decide if they are big or small to us, but also how we want to look at them. We’ll stretch our minds and think about what we consider a problem now and what we thought was a problem in our past. We get to choose how we look at situations and we get to decide how we perceive our problems. But we can change our thoughts about a situation by looking at it from a different view.
How often do you spend trying to change someone else? Are you able to believe and accept the fact that the only person you can change is yourself?

FORGIVENESS! It’s so important and we have total control whether we choose to forgive someone, but we often don’t. Why? Why can’t we move on and forgive others?

In this week’s podcast I rebroadcast a previous episode on forgiveness and I also ask you if you can’t forgive someone, how can you expect others to forgive you? We all need forgiveness—we all have hurt people and not realized it. Forgiveness cleanses our soul and helps us to grow.

Listen and start exercising your mind and may your holiday season be filled with many moments with those you LOVE.
