#61 Taking the High Road

“We rarely get lost taking the high road” a friend said to me recently. This quote stood out from others about taking the high road because it referred to the possibility of getting lost. I never really thought about it before, but we do get lost when we react to a situation vs responding to it. We wander away from the person we want to be or become. Give yourself the mental exercise you deserve and take a listen.

#55 HE WHO ANGERS YOU CONTROLS YOU

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.

#46 Acceptance of Things we cannot Change

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? A friend of mine recently said “I can’t change it, I can only do my best with it” when talking about a family members personality trait. This attitude and recognition is so important if we want to lead a more peaceful life. Listen to this weeks podcast and stretch your mind to think about this and how you can bring more peace to your life by adopting this mantra when dealing with others.
