Victim or Creator?

 

Connect with Julianna

Hi it’s Julianna Lyddon here and I have a couple of concepts that I want to throw your way. These concepts have been helpful for not only my clients when I bring them up, but for my students. I teach incoming freshman. Also its great to use with your employees. Its wonderful to use with your children and again these are fairly easy or simplistic as I say, but they are concepts that we don’t always think about.

So when I throw the word victim out there, what comes to mind? What do you think about? Because the individual that acts as the victim, is that person that likes to blame everybody else. That doesn’t want to take responsibility. That doesn’t like to be held accountable. It was her fault. It was his fault. The teacher just doesn’t like me. My boss doesn’t understand me. Right? There’s always an excuse. We know these individuals. Maybe there’s been a time in your life where you have been that individual. Right? Okay so when I throw this other word out there, the word creator, what comes to mind when you think about that? Well when we are the creator, we are the individual that sees opportunity everywhere.

Are you thinking about moving in together or getting married?

Hi its Julianna Lyddon here and so today I want to talk about something that came up my classroom. I teach college kids, incoming freshmen in Arizona and today we were talking a little bit about habits and how we can stop behaviors before they become habitual and having that real awareness of what a habit is and how long it takes a habit to be actually formed and really getting in there and making that unnecessary shift.

Some of the kids brought up….. we have such great discussions …and some of them brought up this concept of relationships and marriages and how complicated that can be when two people have very specific habits. And how they come together in a relationship and how it can be extra difficult at eradicating or even really making the shift that’s very necessary so then the conversation kinda parlayed into someone asking if I believe in premarital counseling and so we had a discussion about that and I absolutely think that if individuals would go to see someone before they get married or even moved in together more marriages would be salvaged… would be saved.

What Warning Signs Are Telling You

Ok….so I have had more than one client talk about this lately so I would love to give my opinion.

Often we get into the trap of negating our negative feelings and believing that in order to be the “better” person, we must send unconditional love to others and ourselves and not feel badly, hurt, angry or even pissed. You know, you have all heard it….that thing about sending your enemies love. Well, here’s my take! Ultimately, that is a beautiful thing to do…to aspire to this place of sending love from our heart. It does work and it does heal! It heals us and the world!

Elevate your mood

Elevate your mood

What do you do to get in a better mood?

 

We all have bad days and some are worse than others.

Try something new to elevate your mood:

 

 
Share love with an animal
Take a bath
Read an inspirational book
Go to a funny movie and laugh until you cry
Journal your feelings
Lie in the grass and stare at the stars
Share your feelings with a loved one
 
Do you believe that your thoughts influence your health?

Thoughts.  You have so many of them.  But, how many of you pay attention to what types of thoughts are moving through your head (positive or negative, anxious or calm)?

Do you practice reconstructing those thought patterns that are negative or do you get lost in them? 

Give it a try…..when you find yourself in a bad mood, divert your attention to a happy moment you can remember and immerse yourself in that memory.
 
Watch your mood shift instantly….practice makes perfect!

Connect With What Lies Beneath

 

Connect with what lies beneath… What does this mean?

So many of us go through life so busy and running in so many directions that we don’t always take the time to see what’s under the surface of our lives, what lies beneath. This relates to so many different aspects of who we are and how we see and react to all those experiences. We have been conditioned throughout our lives to respond a certain way…we learned many of these behaviors, thoughts, actions, while growing up. Some good, some bad.
