    Prescription #1

    Ask for what you want – but don’t demand it.

    You stand a better chance of getting what you want when you ask for it than when you don’t. That’s obvious. Why do you often fail to ask for what you want? Sometimes you’re afraid that people will be mad if you do. Sometimes you hesitate to assert yourself. Perhaps you expect people to read your mind. Maybe you are practicing up to become a martyr.

    Minimalist Living – To Let Go Or Not to Let Go

    Today I read a little concerning minimalist living! Without realizing, I have lived this way for years. I began simplifying my life years ago, when I first started to understand that we complicate our lives with too much stuff. Clutter is something that can wear on us emotionally.

    The Little Things in Living Count

    The little things in living count for much more than we realize. Many of the things we do go unrecognized until we fail to do them. You may be excellent at keeping the laundry done. This small accomplishment may seem as if it were no big deal, until the day that your husband has run out of clean underwear. We accomplish hundreds of little seemingly insignificant things daily and we, ourselves may be unaware of these things, until one day we notice something we failed to do!

    There’s No Harm in Positive Thinking

    Positive thinking is more than fancy words that symbolize power and control. This type of thinking is an idea that has a potential of changing our minds and improving our lives. Higher consciousness and high awareness are fine. We must awaken from slumber and thrive in our world. Positive thinking cannot make you powerful, but merely assist you in letting go of hatred, prejudgments, resentments and fear.

    You Can If You Think You Can

    I read the book “You Can If You Think You Can” by Norman Vincent Peale several months ago. This suggestion is immense and the fact is if we think we can we can! If we think we cannot, this is equally true. My mother spewed this seemingly nonsense to me as I was growing up. It seemed like a method to get me to cease saying I can’t, instead of something to encourage me to believe in my potential. As I read this book and reflected on the profound truth that it revealed, I considered an experience.

    This Too Shall Pass – As If it Never Happened

    Have you ever noticed that after you do something, it is as if it never happened? You may ponder and rethink doing something many times before you finally begin. The mental list of pros and cons builds in your mind with each excuse that you create. Even the legitimate reasons for jumping in and getting started cannot seem to motivate you. The negative thinking about what you will go through can seem, severe, and irritating.

    Concealment of Who We Are and How We Developed

    Nearly everyone hopes that his or her children will grow up and have a better lifestyle than they have. As parents, we desire what is best for our children and hope they can have an easy time in life. We want our children to learn from our past mistakes. If we can enable them to avoid repeating the self-same errors perhaps, they will be better off. Ultimately, it would be great if children, especially teenagers could avoid attending the same school of hard knocks that we attended.

    What is Behind the Fear of Rejection?

    Do you believe that you suffer from a fear of rejection? Does this fear leave you feeling worried and unable? Does the thought of what other people may surmise, stop you from speaking up? The thought of another turning you down or ignoring you, often mistook as a fear of rejection, runs deeper.
