Ikkuma

I Stress A lot…. I tend to take care of my health. I’ve always been good at setting boundaries. Boundaries prevent me from letting bad habits takeover. If I lose control over these set boundaries, the more uncertainty I feel. With more uncertainty and lack of self-control, the greater the anxiety.

Ikkuma

You’ve probably heard the adage that you are the sum of the five people you spend time with (thanks to Jim Rohn). This is easy enough to understand but do we actually take the time to question with whom we spend our time. And even if we do, how do we go about judging if they are good or bad for us?

49 Judgments In 8-Hours

“Love is the absence of judgment.” ? Dalai Lama XIV. A post on self-judgment may be a little heavy for the younger reader, but I wish I had read this when I was growing up. So feel free to share with your son or daughter. 6:45am, Wednesday morning… … I woke up this morning and wasted 5-minutes erasing stupid emails (Judgment #1). … Making my lemon and water in the morning, I dropped a piece of the bottle cap in the lemon juice bottle… “Jesus LeBlanc!!” (#2).
