Growth is the ability to look backwards into the past and forwards into the future and make conscious choices about which actions will best suit your highest self. Growth allows you to create your future in ways that are sustainable, joyful and strong. Growth is all about integrating mind/body/spirit through actions which increase happiness, build strength and develop strong connections to your best self. Growth means stretching, moving out of your comfort zone in ways that build strength and honour who you are and who you are becoming. Growth can be painful at times and it’s a necessary part of the process. This is one case where “no pain = no gain” really is true. Growth is step three.

He went on to say that he’d had a few longer-term relationships but each and every one of these women had either walked away or departed with harsh words that left him reeling and bewildered.read more
Let’s get this clear at the outset- I’m not talking about having a baby.
I’m talking about what happens when we give up our expectations.
It happened to me this past weekend, and caught me completely off guard!
My expectations deserted me completely, without a word, without a wave goodbye, without so much as a, “thanks it’s been great and you’re a terrific person”!
I was having one of those days where the sinking feeling rolled over my head just about the time my coffee was ready in the morning and I was glad of having a machine that made 3 cups at a time.
You know the feeling right?
A number of years ago I had a teacher who started out a seminar by greeting each of us with this statement, “Hey! there’s a squid on your face”!

We’ve all tried to make resolutions and as humans, we’ve all failed at them, yet every year New Year’s rolls around and we trot out the hats and horns and some new resolutions we are determined to stick to. The problem with making resolutions is that they don’t work and by setting them we often set ourselves up for failure and the accompanying feelings of guilt and shame and disappointment.

All that stuff is useless… Read on for the real data!read more
