Your Emotions - When You Feel Hurt

Your Emotions – When You Feel Hurt! When you feel hurt you are usually responding to what you see as an injustice. Usually you feel hurt when you feel something isn’t fair - someone has let you down or treated you in a way you feel is not right. Often, when you feel hurt you will withdraw from the person who has hurt you and stop all communication with them. Others might see this as resentment or aloofness and some see you as sulking. Please don't Sulk! Sulking can be silent sulking or it might be angry, noisy sulking with the slamming of doors and much huffing and puffing. Sometimes you just snipe at someone close to you without saying why.  "Surely, if he loved me enough He would know why!" Often behavior like this is about getting even or punishing – at the very least you want an apology. But sulking rarely achieves the outcome that you want. It can make you more miserable than the person you believe has transgressed. Overcom

Be Successful – Making A Personal Change – Part 6 Change Your Core Beliefs | WiseWolf Talking - the Wisewolf Coaching Blog

Be Successful – Making A Personal Change – Part 6 Change Your Core Beliefs | WiseWolf Talking - the Wisewolf Coaching Blog There is a new post on WiseWolf Talking that you might enjoy! You can change those core beliefs we all carry. They get in the way when we want to make a personal change that will improve our lives.  We all carry unhelpful beliefs about ourselves, about other people and about the world about us. We gather them up as we go through life from our parents, our teachers, others about us and from things that happen to us. We learn to think, for example, that we are lazy or stupid. May be we think we are bad people, unworthy of happiness or success; or that people like us just never succeed! Most of these belief are not founded in anything real but we go on believing. We may have failed at something once but that doesn’t mean we will not succeed this time or that we are less worthy of happiness.

Wonderful Wheatgrass

 (Photo credit: Wikipedia ) There are many claims for the health benefits of wheatgrass from providing a useful food supplement to curing various deseases. The benfits of wheatgrass were first discovered by Charles F Schnabel, an agricultural chemist. He used fresh cut grass in an attempt to nurse some dying hens back to health. The hens not only recovered, but they produced eggs at a higher rate than healthy hens. Encouraged by his results, he began drying and powdering grass for his family and neighbors to supplement their diets. The following year, Schnabel reproduced his experiment and achieved the same results. Hens consuming rations supplemented with grass doubled their egg production. Schnabel's research was conducted with wheatgrass grown outdoors in Kansas Among other things, it has been claimed that wheatgrass helps blood flow , digestion and general detoxification of the body. But these claims have not yet been proved.  Wheatgrass contains no wheat gluten. But

Monday Quotes – Time Management

Monday Quotes – Time Management Time is the scarcest resource and unless it is managed, nothing else will be managed. Peter F. Drucker You must master your time rather than becoming a slave to the constant flow of events and demands on your time. And you must organize your life to achieve balance, harmony, and inner peace. Brian Tracy I learned that we can do anything, but we can’t do everything.. at least not at the same time. So think of your priorities not in terms of what activities you do, but when you do them. Timing is everything Dan Millman Perhaps the very best question that you can memorize and repeat, over and over, is, “what is the most valuable use of my time right now?"  Brian Tracy Choose the time of day or night when your energies are highest and conduct business at that time.
