Self-criticism is a common aspect of our personality that most people will wrestle with in life. I certainly do, and let’s be honest…it can be brutal. While I believe self-criticism helps keep me dialed into life assessment, including my faults and limitations, it’s a double-edged sword that can be disastrous if I don’t keep it… Continue reading The Good and Bad of Self-Criticism

Nudged Out of Neutral
There’s an unexpected and strange happening as we walk the path of growth and healing. What once sat well with us, no longer does. The disruption, chaos, or discomfort that didn’t bother us before, now causes irritation, frustration, and anger.

Why We Need Outward Assessment for Living a More Peaceful and Satisfying Life
Priority is a Singular Word, Not Plural
I have no idea when priority, meaning “prime concern, first concern, matter of greatest importance” and “a thing that is regarded as more important than another” or the British definition of “the right to take precedence or to proceed before others”, became accepted as a plural word. By definition, and for all practical reason, only… Continue reading Priority is a Singular Word, Not Plural
