Environment and Relationships Impact Who We Are

Tuesday, August 19th, 2008

The environment and relationships impact our life. Those people who influenced me most pushed me in the direction of continuous education. My deep yearning for knowledge actually made the learning happen. What I have found is that the more I learn, the more I realize how much I don’t know. I truly believe that continuing education and building on skills is the key to a successful life that can be shared with others. How has the environment and relationships impacted your life and who you are?

Emotional Maturity

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

People can only evoke reactions in us if we choose to let them. By reflecting and going back in time to when we first remember a similar word, situation, person, or incident, we can work through the original incident by replacing those negative memories with what should have been to make us feel okay. By replacing these negative messages with positive ones, we can overcome negative programming and become more in harmony with our relationships and our environment. As we begin to understand ourselves more and more, we will find ourselves responding positively to more and more situations and relationships with understanding and compassion.
