Sad! Ever think of the number of people dying of unintentional drug overdose

Today!  As we begin a new month I wanted you to know some sad facts.

One person in the U.S. dies of an unintentional drug overdose every 21 minutes.  Each day 46 people die of an overdose of opioids.  In 2019 70,630 Americans died of drug overdose.  

Are you a friend or relative of someone who is using legal or illegal drugs?  You are the person that could benefit from talking with me as a life coach.

If your co-worker is using drugs or alcohol and you are thinking it is not healthy.  Please let them know your are concern about them.  It is the silence that lets them continue to think it isn’t effecting them or that it doesn’t matter.   By speaking up you may just be the seed that gets them to look for help.  It lets them know someone cares.  Try to present the topic in a friendly caring mater of fact conversation.

May A new month

There is not greater wealth in this World than peace of mind. Helen Berry 

This is so true.  If you are are struggling please give my life coaching a try.  See if you can discover some peace. 

Did you know the Month of May is likely named after the Roman goddess Maria, who oversaw the growth of plants. 

The month is full of celebrations from Cinco de Mayo on the 5, Mother’s day on the 9th, Armed forces Day on the 16th, National Maritime day on the 22nd, Memorial Day on the 31th.  How do you celebrate these different occasions?

April Showers 2021

April Showers bring May flowers.  What are you showering your garden with?  Negativity, Hatred, Gossip, Division, or are you looking for flaws in others?   Or are you focusing on you?  Did you look for the good qualities in each individual that crossed your path?    Do you pay others complements, or see what you are grateful for?  Are you speaking favorably about all you meet?  How about the value others have and do you value the good in them?

Another way to look at this is tossing a pebble into a pond.  Whether you toss the pebble with anger or joy when it comes in contact with the water it causes ripples, those ripples spread out and touch all that is around, even all the way to the banks of the pond. We too have a ripple effect whether it is positive of negative.

Now as you sow what will you shower your garden with?  April showers of encouragement, hope, kindness, forgiveness, and truth.  Think of the beautiful flowers that will bloom this summer.  Look to scripture and the sower, who dropped seeds here and there.  Each came up and grew according to the soil the seed fell on.

Maybe you are the one who prepared the soil, or the one who planted the seed, or the one who watered the seed, or even the one who adds sawdust and coffee grounds to the soil, or removed the weeds, each of these may never see the end results.  Yet, each had an important task for a vibrant flower to bloom. That is you in different roles for each individual you meet.  By helping each that cross your path to be showered with positivity or negativity.  The kind of shower will determine the kind of blooms others will see and appreciate.   Let us all, this April be full of positive showers.

“All of us have special ones who have loved us into being.” Fred Rogers

If you are are struggling with the showers/ ripples you create then contacting a life coach maybe is what you need.   You can connect through the chat button or schedule a session.

Spring

Spring is about new life, or maybe your New Years resolution needs new life. How can we prepare for the April Showers that are to come?   “I have learned silence from the talkative; tolerance from the unkind.   I should not ungrateful to those teachers.” (Kahlil Gibran: Sand and Foam)

Let the obstacles you have faced this year be your teacher to prepare for the showers to come.

“Silence is the soil for the seed of the Word” Mother Teresa

Do you allow yourself time with silence?  We live in a world of noise take sometime to enjoy the silence.  You may discover something unique, or maybe just what you needed to gain your peace and joy.  Each  day should have some moments of silence.

If you are struggling you may wish to speak to a Life Coach

The Welcome spring

Is a beautiful thing.

Birds on the wing.

All start to sing.

Warm breeze blowing

And daffodils glowing!   (Teacher Created Resources)

March

What does March make you think about?  Maybe spring and planting a garden, Or St. Patrick’s Day Parades, or Spring Break.  Most of us look forward to warmer temperatures and the snow to be gone, to see the green buds on the trees, birds flying north, the sight of a Robin, and flowers coming up.  Here in Florida we too look for the warmer temperatures to come.  Yet, March is a month that teaches us patience, for those in the north know snow is very possible and dangerous frost to new growth.  For some this is a season of Lent a time to prepare for the risen Lord. This season last 40 days.  That one prepares through fasting, alms giving, and prayer.

March seems to be a time to prepare, yet only action of preparation.  For many of us only preparing and not acting is hard.  The other is the waiting for the results.  If a baker takes the cookies out to soon; they are raw and no good, if the baker lets the cookies stay in to long they burn and are no good.  I believe this is true about a lot of things in life. Even the farmer prepares the soil and then waits to be sure the weather is right to plant.  He then has to wait to see if the seeds sprout and be patient till it is time to harvest the crop.  You have to find the right balance of preparing, patience, and knowing when to act.  That is what a Life Coach can help you with, by helping you discover how to prepare,  realizing it is a time of preparing, patience, or even help you decide that it is time for action.

May March be your time of preparing and patience so that you will be the best version of yourself, ready to act at the right moment.  Don’t forget to include your Higher Power to help you along the way.  If you need a Life Coach just set up an appointment with me.   Discover how important preparing and patience are to the end results and the amount of satisfaction you feel.  May this be your time of growth into the best version of you that you can be at this time.  Remember we are always changing.

Lent

Are you a Christian that participates in Lent?  What do you receive by participating in Lenten practices?  Have you ever thought about the benefits this practice does for you?  I find that it is interesting the medical field now agrees a once a week fast is good for your digestive system.  By eating only one meal and two snacks for one day of the week, with no meat, helps improve your digestive system.  Brings all the organs involve to be able to digesting the food you eat more efficiently.  By drinking more water and less other kinds of beverages also benefits the digestive system.

What about alms giving?  Almsgiving has an emotional benefit to our bodies.  When we give to someone who is in need of that gift. There is a two way benefit.  We are more joyful when we give to others. Plus, it helps the individual you gave it to. Joy increases our immune system.  Boost our emotional state.

The last of the three is prayer.  Prayer connects one to their Higher Power and for Christians that is God, and Jesus.  Scientist have verify that people in prayer are calmer and have lower blood pressure. We know that when we are stressful our blood pressure increases and makes our hearts work harder, even hurts our immune system.

Have you thought what you will do this Lent?  I would suggest that you take time to pray in the morning (10 minutes at least) and in the evening (10 minutes at least).  If you want to do more add 10 minutes of silence listening to what your Higher Power is saying to you.  On Fridays make it a water only day and the one meal no meat with two snacks.  Then find things you have that you are not using and give them to any of the many organizations that help the poor.  If you gave something each day think how blessed others would be.  Yes, almsgiving is also giving money, food, or items.  Even your time and talents offered for others would count.

I wish all that are doing a Lenten practice that it is the best Lent they ever had.

If you need someone to encourage you along your journey that is what a Life Coach does.  Contact me and I would be glad to walk with you along your journey.

Love-Are You Open

Have you ever really reflect on how you show others love?   “Rid yourself of all malice and all deceit, insecurity, envy, and all slander, like new born infants, long for pure spiritual milk so that through it you may grow into salvation, for you have tasted that the Lord is good.” Peter 2:1-3   Now it is amazing how we look at others really can help or hinder how we love.  If you see what someone else has and you feel less than because of it. Then, you are not seeing all you do have.  Is this an issue for you? A life coach can help you work to find your gifts and talents.  The more you are happy when others receive good things the more your heart is open to love. Do you think my spouse has it so easy?  Maybe actually doing what they do in a day will show you it isn’t as easy as they make it seem.  This month is for us to reflect on what others do to make our days better.  Those of you who are married when was the last time you went on a date.  You should be doing this a least twice a month.  How about a best friend; when was the last time you told them what they mean to you.  Why not take this month to tell all those who are close to you what they mean to you.  The more you can do this see how your own spirit is raised.  When we give with no strings.  It just seems to benefit us too.  If you are not sure if you have malice, insecurity, envy, or even if you find that you do say things that is slanderous working with a life coach could help you.  Just set up an appointment today.

Happiness

Do you look for happiness in people, or pets, or places, or things?  Do you have internal happiness?  Are you in search of happiness?  What brings you happiness and how long does it last?  A Life Coach can help you explore all these areas and help you discover ways to improve your happiness.  By exploring your attitude in different situations.  Things to think about.  1. You can’t change anyone, you can only change yourself.  2.  It is in focusing on others in understanding and acceptance that help our attitudes. 3.  Things will always only give you fleeting happiness.  4. Attitudes of gratitude help how you feel about a situation.  Walter Heily put it this way. “Happiness is not created by what happens to us, but by our attitudes toward each happening.”   If you would like to work on this issue contact me at discoveramazingyou@gmail.com or schedule an appointment.

Money can’t buy happiness.
