Relapse prevention is not just for addicts. Preventive measures apply to all aspects of life.
Anyone who wants to make changes that lead to self-improvements, has to be patient with the process.
Changes in habit take time and effort. Expect to be uncertain and make mistakes.
There is no perfect road to recovery or transformation. But you can be prepared for the journey.
Boundaries are not the same as barriers. A boundary is a limit or a personal space. A barrier is a defense or a form of resistance.
Personal boundaries are a vital part of mental and physical health. But barriers can prevent us from having optimum mental and physical health.
Know what your limits are and know what your resistances are. When you are aware of the difference between the two, you have more balance in your life.
By building your boundaries and overcoming your barriers, you will achieve more life success.
The position you are in right now is the starting point for the next position.
So where are you headed? As you leave one situation, what is the next one you are entering?
On your journey through the events of life, certain issues keep turning up over and over again. Like a pop song you cannot get out of your head.
The default setting is to complain about it and put the blame on others. But the program is yours. What are you doing with it?
When your writing lacks proper punctuation and/or punctuation placement meanings get lost and confusion flourishes
Your reader does not know where to pause end or transition
If you want to be understood then use commas colons semicolons question marks etcetera
And never miss your period
Of course there is a difference between what you need and what you want. In essence, we do not really need much. Just healthy food, water, and shelter.
But to be human is to want. More than anything we want to be happy, to feel a sense of inner peace.
Many people pursue what they think they want in an effort to achieve happiness. However, this is often an exercise in futility.
It is good to want, but make sure that you want the right things.
How often do you get hung up on lots of details and try to focus on too many things at once?
When you make tasks too complex, the process becomes very time and resource consuming. It can feel overwhelming and create obstacles that slow down the works.
Keep it simple. Your action plan does not need to be complicated.
Concentrate on the key areas. Narrow your goals and objectives down to a logical sequence.
Once you have established a base, then you can take it to the next level.
But they also keep you sidetracked. When you get to the finish line, where will you be?
Where do you really want to focus your energy? Do you want a better life? The distractions will keep you busy with your dreams about a better life.
But are dreams the real thing? How can you be busy making your dreams a reality?
