Being Kind or Right?

Many times humans don’t even realize the dilemma they are sometimes in. In difficult times or in the heat of an argument, or even when trying to help someone else through a difficult time, we face the decision to either show someone that we are right and they were wrong in doing something, or instead we can just be kind to someone and be there for them in the moment.

#DoesNOTDefineME

I was personally a part of a video that was created by a group of students taking a masters level course in social and cultural diversity course during Spring of 2018. The group decided to focus their message on how labels and stereotypes attempt to define us. The link is below. I hope you check it out. Continue reading

STOP Saying You’re Sorry to EVERYTHING!

In my experiences I have come across many a person that seems to apologize for even the slightest thing that goes wrong in a day. This type of individual is usually someone who works for someone else (non-independent type job), is some sort of paid or unpaid intern/extern, or is a student. These types of people tell their significant other, their boss, the cashier at Walgreens, a driver who cut them off, their friend(s), their pets even that they are sorry for the slightest things. YES, if someone does not work out in the ideal way that you had it pictured in your mind, then we have a slight instance of what I call the “oh shit” feeling. Continue reading

Thoughts: Capitalism and the Media

Capitalism was important in America due to the idea that we needed to break away from the power and control of a government run by a few, or at that time the monarchy in England.  Private industry was pushed and less federal government control was needed to separate ourselves from the previously known system in England which is where most of America’s forefathers came from.  Back then it might have seemed like a great idea, capitalism to lessen the power of the elite and give power back to the people.

Guided Imagery Meditation Script

Start by taking a few deep breaths…. slowly…. and evenly…..remembering to let your belly rise as you breathe in…. and to let it fall as you breathe out

Remember to breathe deeply in through your nose and out through your mouth…

Now return to your normal breathing, don’t try to change it, but keep breathing in and out, focusing on how your body feels at this moment. Feel the pace of your body becoming slower.

Can’t Stop Won’t Stop

You can quit a job, a relationship, a friend, a school, a commitment, a religion, a hobby, or anything else you want. You must do what feels right and what you want to do. Choose when you’re able to find at least a few minutes of calm even if it’s one time a week for 5 minutes. Quit whatever you want. But don’t quit on yourself. Never. Ever. I don’t allow you to. I won’t allow you to. You will make it through this. Time heals all wounds. Just don’t quit on yourself and the universe will at some point set it all straight for you. Be kind, be honest, and be of service. Especially to yourself and others. You can quit people, just treat them kindly when you do, and remember that I don’t allow you to quit on yourself. The Greek Guru Guy does not allow you to do so.

I’m Bringin’ Feedback

I stared at the paper before me, red marks covering its many pages.  The comments were long and accompanied by an excess of words being crossed out.  Grammatical errors were pervasive, though they weren’t apparent at the time of the paper’s writing.  I eventually reached the end of what seemed like an endless critique to find the biggest whammy of them all.  I got a final grade of a B-.

I hear you laughing, but let me finish!  The shock took a few minutes to wear off.  “How could I get such a low grade?” I thought to myself.  After all, I had always been considered a good writer.  What happened this time?  I did the exact same thing I always did:  thought up a topic, wrote my paper, and turned it in.  Yet this time, I didn’t receive the usual A that I was used to.  I felt out of my league and concerned about my college career.  This was the first major grade I received from a college professor, and while not terrible, it certainly wasn’t what I desired.  Continue reading

Do what makes you happy! In work, vacation, downtime, life decisions, social time, and everything else! You are the expert of your own life. As much as I love the work of counsellors, social workers, and psychologists, none of them can make you happy and give you the answers. As long as they are good at what they do, they are there to help you find that motivation and confidence inside of you to find your own happiness, peace, direction, and inspiration.
