Patricia's Positives

Hope you enjoy my blogs. They are my perceptions and perspectives on spirituality, health and wellness, positive mental attitude, relationships, and intuition. These are based on my many interviews over the years as well as my own experiences.  I welcome your comments.

When it is all said and done, when you have done your work, done it well, and "tilled the soil" of your success, one thing remains: To trust that the "what" you have done will bear fruit. Trust is an inner knowing and a "focused surrender" that things will work out.
There is a saying that God made us with two ears and one mouth for a reason. Knowing when to talk and when to listen is a skill. We often talk because the silence and pauses make us nervous. Or we talk to fill the void. On the other hand, some of us are too silent and speak only when spoken to; perhaps playing it "safe." Balancing the two is the goal.
The quote, "If at first you don't succeed, try and try again," is so very true. We stop short of our goals and dreams when we put limits on our efforts and missed opportunities.
Dictionaries define vacations as 1) a period of time devoted to pleasure, rest, or relaxation, especially one with pay granted to an employee, 2) a holiday, and 3) a fixed period of holidays, especially one during which a school, court, or business suspends activities.
After 15 years of life on the beautiful Crystal Coast of North Carolina, I have been back in New England for one year. I left the place I loved for two reasons; to be nearer my family and for professional opportunities.
Here's the scenario: It's been a tough day at work with lots of demands from colleagues, clients, and customers, most of which remain unmet by the end of the day. You come home exhausted, frustrated, and cranky. You are met by your family excited to see you and want to talk to you. You are "spent" and burned-out. What to do?
I've been thinking about the word power lately and what it really means. This word can overwhelm us when we think of how power is used in a negative way to control and manipulate others and situations.
For many, Valentine's Day will be a day of flowers, beautiful cards, romantic gifts, and special words. For others, the day will not be as cheerful and bright. Life's circumstances of divorce, separation, the death of a loved one or another "love" challenge will cause pain and feelings of loss on this favorite February holiday.

Psychologists have estimated that the average person has over 62,000 thoughts each day centered on ordinary activities and responsibilities. People rarely "track" their thoughts - whether they’re positive or negative, fleeting or introspective, directed or unrelated to the moment. Never the less, our internal dialogue for decision-making, actions, and behavior hums constantly in our brains.
