"Serenity is not freedom from the storm, but peace amid the storm."
Do you know this quote? It's one of my favs and definitely a life theme. :) Maybe for you too....
Many of us subconsciously wait for life to mellow out,
to get easier,
for everything to fall into place
- so we can finally be happy.
But all we ever have is this very moment.
And sometimes this moment is crazy as can be.
This, my friends, is the part of life where spirituality and brain science intersect.
Where we learn how to ride the waves of life, working towards mastery of our earthly existence.
As my Grandma Holmes always used to say (in her very Depression area, non new-agey way) "mind over matter." She's right.
Where we connect with the social brain and universal goodness,
and simply do the best we can with the tools and the life we have.
Always opening our hearts to receive more support, more love, and more wisdom to get us through
and to keep us growing.
But, gosh, this continual process of self-evolution isn't for the faint of heart.
Here's my fav ways to find our peace & calm within the storm:
Calm the Storm: Transforming Emotional Breakdowns to Breakthroughs Begins this April!
put your best foot forward
to the max
next step is knowing
deep in your heart
your unique goodness
to live your best life
transform the hard stuff
use (something) to maximum advantage.
the human brain
to focus on the negative
the negativity bias
is an old survival mechanism
potentially wrecking havoc
on our modern lives
when we notice
second guess our abilities
focus on our challenges
beat ourselves up for
having a bad day
don't allow ourselves
to be human
make a mistake
Hi friends, I write from the heart to tell my life story, and the story of those in my neighborhood called life. Research shows that our children's emotional & mental health is contingent upon us parents being able to tell our life story, or "coherent narrative." This is my coherent narrative, my life story in the making, with some of what I love in life too. My goal is to share my life in a way that is real, uplifting & positive- sometimes serious, sometimes fun. In my practice, I inspire parents to empowerment through reclaiming our life stories and learning respectful discipline. My work is my offering to our children- our future. Wishing you all a happy family!
