LIFE HAPPENS TO US ALL

This past weekend, I was invited to participate in the Healthy Minds Health Fair here in town.  Several mental health-related businesses, counselors, non-profit organizations and others were invited to attend.  This event was to provide a one-stop shop of healthy-mind resources for our community.

HAVE YOU MOVED OR JUST REARRANGED THE FURNITURE?

This past weekend was rather rainy and gray, so I spent most of my time indoors catching up on some reading.  I came across an interesting quote:   “Everyone wants to be transformed, but nobody wants to change.” ~ Frederica Mathewes-Green   I had to ponder the meaning of this for awhile.  There is so much truth in it.

OPTIMIST vs PESSIMIST?

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?  How would YOU describe your attitude?  How would others around you describe it? When I think of a pessimist, Murphy’s Law comes to mind, “If anything can go wrong, it will!”  Do you tend to agree with Murphy?
