Day 1276: Learning from Scratch

Since taking in 2 puppies, I have been reminded of the fact that I must start at the very beginning with developing relationships with them - I cannot expect them to know what I know, or what my older dog Lifi knows. I have to stop my automated assumption that they are already at the same level that I'm at.

Day 1275: The Problem with Feel Good Fixes

We all have moments of happiness in our lives - or at lease we should. As things are in the world, most of us have only those few moments in between moments of generally unpleasant experiences. Sometimes though, we get addicted to those good feelings and start chasing after them - making them our life mission - whether it's money, new relationships, shopping, hobbies, or even drugs. Here it is important to be aware of the difference between looking for energetic fixes and developing self expression.

Day 1274: Fear & Imagining Worst Case Scenarios

When something bad happens, my first response is often fear. But with the fear comes something I experience as even worse - I imagine all the things that could possibly go wrong, all the worst case scenarios. That's not how I want to respond to difficult situations, so I have been practicing living a different response.

Day 1273: Living "This is not Who I am"

I make it a point to reflect on who I am in a moment - what am I thinking? What am I speaking? How am I behaving? - and is who I am, who I want to be?

How do you live the statement "This is not who I am?" Cerise Poolman and Joe Kou #getreal with how to actually make that statement something you live rather than something you just think about.

Day 1272: Potential, Purpose, me and Desteni

Every now and then I look at myself, at my life, at where I am and re-evaluate what I am creating, what I would like to create and what my focus is.

Day 1271: A Purpose Greater than Myself

Why did I give myself a purpose that is greater than me - something in my life that will always come first, even before my own interests and desires?

Day 1270: Quit Your Overcomplicating

There is a difference between having all the relevant information in order to make a decision / change and having ALL the information there ever was, is or will be before being able to consider a decision / change. Do you get stuck on thinking about something for days, months or even years? Hmmmm.

Sometimes people over-analyze, overthink, and over-complicate things to such a point where Cerise Poolmanand Joe Kou have to #getreal with it and give people a dose of common sense and simplicity. This is one of those times.

Day 1269: The Pain of being a Beginner

I decided to start taking singing lessons to support me to develop myself within singing, and like any other skill, the beginning is always the worst. I sound at times like a dying moose, and I hate those moments - but I carry on practicing regardless. We have to go through those moments of being truly awful at something new in order to develop ourselves to be better.

Day 1268: Despite my Insecurity

Standing by my choice to share a specific video of myself, despite my insecurity, was not pleasant or easy - for a moment at least.

Day 1266: Making your Decisions Real

How often do we play the game with ourselves when we tell ourselves "I'm going to change" - but we never end up actually LIVING that change.

Day 1265: I'm Not Ready

Is change something that can only happen when we *feel* ready to implement it?

Cerise Poolman and Joe Kou #getreal with when when we tell ourselves that we cannot change because we're not ready. Are we not the ones who determine when and how we change?

Day 1264: The Discomfort in Growth

The process of stepping out of my comfort zone is not comfortable - it's decidedly uncomfortable actually. But growth doesn't happen in your comfort zone, so I will take these moments to learn more about myself and expand all over the place.

Day 1263: Doing something different... Who will I be?

Putting ourselves in new or different situations can be scary, but if we push through that fear we give ourselves the opportunity to learn more about ourselves - about those parts of ourselves that we otherwise would not have faced.
