Introspective Sunday

Signs Of Perfectionism

“Perfectionism is not a quest for the best. It is a pursuit of the worst in ourselves, the part that tells us that nothing we do will ever be good enough - that we should try again.” ˜Julia Cameron

How Do I Know I Need Help?

"The great blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach; but we shut our eyes, and like people in the dark, we fall foul upon the very thing we search for, without finding it." ˜Seneca (7 B.C. - 65 A.D.)

What Motivates Me?

As I was "introspecting" myself, I really wanted to get in touch with what motivates me to keep going, to press through difficulties, to see the finish line...if there is one. The question is really an easy one for me to answer on some levels, but for the deeper issues, it's not quite as simple.

Am I Attached To My Problems?

IntrospectiveSunday This is an interesting (almost disturbing) question that I just had to ask.  While in prayer/meditation last night, I actually asked if I could ...

Am I A Good Listener?

Giving your full attention, body, soul, and spirit to another takes practice. Frankly, they should be teaching this in elementary school instead of making it an adult class at the community college that no one ever takes.

Introspective Sunday: What Is Your Question?

I guess this self-focus is really just another way of getting to know the real you. It's a good way to get to the bottom of any destructive behavior that might be popping up.

How Do I Make It Through Crisis?

Our wonderfully made bodies and spirits are equipped with the best bells and whistles there are. We have the "guts" to get the glory. All we have to do is believe it and utilize the power in which we've been given.

Is My Mind Connected To My Body?

Ah, yes, the mind/body connection. The more we hear about how important it is, the more we should pay attention. What gives, Ladies and Gentlemen (we've got some male fans now)?

Why Am I Afraid of People?

I really enjoy writing these self-evaluating posts on Sunday; they are as useful for my own growth as I hope they are for yours. Today's topic is one that, yes, I have asked myself in the past...and do still occasionally. Fear can be paralyzing, especially if it doesn't make sense. Let me explain.

Am I Needy?

There aren't too many women out there who could say that they didn't need something, whether it be clothes, kitchen utensils, a man, a job, a car; it's human nature to expand their list of possessions.

Am I All That…

IntrospectiveSunday Allow me to finish that question:  Am I all that I’m supposed to be?  Probably not…I don’t think any of us are. What we ...

Do I Have Emotional Baggage?

Women know better than anyone what it feels like to carry around a big, heavy purse for any length of time. And if you're like me, such a bag is usually necessary to bring along all the things I need for my children and my own indulgences. Though physically we can handle extra weight (for awhile), we are not meant to carry around emotional baggage. What am I talking about? You know....really, you do. That job crisis you had last year; the fight you had with your husband; the breast cancer scare from three years ago; the rejection from sixth grade...

Are Your Wounds Healed?

Do you remember falling off your bike and skinning your knee as a child? Boy, did that hurt. I would run home crying, expecting that my mom would fix me up with peroxide and a bandaid. With the mom-love-laced patch up job, I'd run right back out the door for some backyard frolicking.

Are You At Peace?

There is a secret I want to share with you. I learned this exercise about 2 years ago when I was working on healing from terrible chronic headaches.

Holding On and Letting Go

As women we inevitably face choices. Ones that are hard and ones that require little thought, if any at all - life's opportunities. We either have the opportunity to change something or allow it to remain the same.
