Getting to really know ourselves is one of aging’s gifts

For instance, discovering how sensitive my stomach and body is, and has been since I was little, explains a number of previous ailments and even temperament changes I experienced that are no longer relevant when I eat what I know are the best choices for my optimum health.

“… spends himself at a worthy cause, who at best experiences the triumph of high achievement … at worst if he fails, at least fails daring greatly …”

Shared by me, who so far has failed to launch the global initiative transforming respect from a discretionary value to a global principle because I didn’t have the resources, the partners, and all the know how. But at least I am trying and will continue to do so because the the world will be a much better place for everyone when we finally comprehend how we are hurting ourselves and become willing to make the changes we need to make for humanity, individually and collectively, to thrive.

“3 Mental Blocks That Keep You From Doing What You Say You Want to Do”

“The bad news: We all face powerful mental blocks that stop us when we’re trying to achieve our goals. The good news: We can outwit them. Here’s how, according to cognitive psychologist Amanda Crowell.”

by Daniella Balaerzo for Ideas.TED.Com

She hit the mark with her insights. On one hand, I am heart-driven to “transform respect from a discretionary value to a global principle,” but what a daunting experience it is proving to be. I even hear myself say to others, that if it was up to me, I would just take a job and write on the side like many writers do.

But, as well as feeling it is my calling, the idea that so many people are suffering because they are not valued/respected that I can do something about it keeps me pushing forward with the global initiative, Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle, consoling myself that when it is accomplished, then I will be free to write for the fun of it.

A Women’s Shelter Resident’s Plea

A Women’s Shelter Resident’s Plea

We are all living together in a women’s shelter because we have been hurt, abused, and violated by other people … even by ourselves.

Please, let us not take out our pain on the other people we live with now who are already over-burdened and also experiencing the consequences of how the pain affects us uniquely.

Rather, let us embody respect for ourselves by demonstrating respect for the space we share with others and for those other wounded souls now in our lives.

We do not have to like each other or approve of each other because we do not have to judge each other: we need only to live and let live, without causing any more harm to ourselves or anyone else because there are better ways to live that also generate better results.

We, for the time being, are the community we have around us, so let us encourage, uplift, and inspire each other to heal by growing past our past and becoming the best version of ourselves we can be … because we are all valuable, all worthy of so much more than we have settled for in our lives.
