Your Most Meaningful Moments

Sep 22, 2022

When you think about life, what makes time stand still for you?  Where time slows down and you’re fully present to what’s going on around you.  You don’t want that moment to end.  You’re present and aware of everything that’s happening and you don’t want to miss a single moment of it.  Think about what moments make you feel happy, joy, and fully alive in the present.

 

Rat Race

Often, you get so caught up in the day to day routines of life that it’s hard to be fully present.   It’s like driving your car and realizing that you got to your destination but not remembering anything about the trip to get there.  Scary!  You often drift off, thinking about your to do list, or things to come in the future.  You’re so focused on getting it all done, running as fast as you can to achieve everything and maintain your success that you easily forget what truly makes you happy in life.

Sep 08, 2022

Working to achieve your goal is difficult work.  It takes a lot of stamina, especially when times get tough.  You may feel like you need to push through and carry all the weight on your shoulders.  After all, it is your own personal goal that you’re working towards.  Not someone else’s goal.  However, getting help to achieve your goal can actually be beneficial.  Here is how to ask for help to achieve your goal.
