Quick report on my meeting helping my friend to help her on resume and cover letter. I was right about the bad gossip part. I decide to just listen to begin with because I think it was important for her to vent. Then, as gently as possible, I tried to share some things I knew about the others involved and how those facts/life experiences might impact their behavior toward her. I was pleasantly surprised when each time she said, "I didn't realize that. Yeah, that would probably cause them to act that way." All in all a good afternoon.
Today has been good so far... great chair yoga taught this morning and then had a great yoga practice at a friend's studio. We continued our conversation about my teaching children's yoga there and I am so excited about the ideas we came up with.
In about an hour, I am going to a dear friend's dad's visitation... but I feel ok about it.

Today is a beautiful and cool day here in Wisconsin. I hope it warms up just a bit for this weekend, for the outside water park and Theme park we are going to. I just love doing fun things with my little buddy Ava, and this weekend will be full of fun things. Going out to eat a lot, staying at a motel, going to a water park and a theme park..... We will have so much fun, just hope the weather cooperates, if not there are indoor parks to enjoy also, but hope to be outside.

Blessings and Peace,
Candi

I know what you mean caroljean64, it seems like so many have been trained in bad gossip, so glad you're going to put a goos spin on it, that is a great way to help keep you thinking in an upbeat manner.
I am loving this weather, it has been hot but temps are going o strat cooling down for a few days, so a break at work, lol

Today I have been given a great chance to help someone. I got a phone call last night from a woman I worked with for 7 years before I retired 4 years ago. She called and wants help rewriting her resume. I can tell from our brief conversation that she want to share unhealthy gossip. Luckily because I have joined this team, I know I am going to listen and see if I can put a healthy spin on it, if not, just get down to the task at hand.

Your life is as good as you think it is, and it is as good as you make it. I always am reminded of the old lady who became ill and had to be moved from he big beautiful home that she had shared with her family for 50 + years. Almost everything had to be sold and she could only choose a few items to take with her to her new home (a crowded nursing home). After having lived in the nursing home for 1 month someone saw her sitting at a window looking out and smiling widly. They asked herhow she liked it there at the nursing home and she said I love it her, I am very happy, and I find new things all the time that make me smile. They ask her what it is that makes her so happy and she answered, my thoughts and determination. I choose to be happy, I am determined to be happy and I work at being happy. It doesn't matter where I live, who I live with, or even what I own, what matters is how much I appreciate what and who I do have, and how I want to feel about it.

Blessings and Peace,
Candi

You are such a wonderful example of living in the present and realizing the only thing you can control is you, not your environment. Thanks for sharing.

I have adopted the Budhist lifestyle, living WITHOUT Ego, and living in the present. I start as soon as I wake up, and before my feet touch the floor, I think of things that make me happy and make sure to include at least 1 of those things in my day. I live with 2 very strong personalities and couldn't continue to do that if I didn't spend every waking second being as positive as I possibly can be. My husband and daughter both have mental diseases one is Bi-Polar and the other is Borderline with mild schitzophrenia. The one is super negative and always grumpy and difficult, and the other is very forceful and projective with wild ups and downs. I know that I can only control myself but that is all I really need to do, to find the peace and serenity I need to survive in a very crazy environment. I also try to keep the two of them apart when ever possible.....lol

Blessings and Peace,
Candi

Good suggestion.

A book I read recently was on the topic of self talk. It was called 'What to say when you talk to your self' by Shad Helmstetter. I found that book to be a good read and although the idea of being nice to yourself isn't new, it was written well and I found the book useful.

I have started a new habit... at the end of each day, I reflect on the good things I have experienced, seen, felt during the day. It helps rewire my brain for positive thinking and a positive viewpoint.
Check out the book Just One Thing to learn more about this idea.
