    Best gift given

    Friday, August 29, 2008, 12:38 PM [General]

    My best gift given is speaking to a large group of Grade 6- 8 students at a school last month. I shared with the students re: anti-racism and how they could rise above barriers to pursue their dreams. It was an interactive session and the students had lots of questions. 

     Students coming from families where they are first generation settlers undergo many forms of struggles. Some of them flee from their country for econmoic and political reasons. Then they undergo several barriers such as cultural, language, social, religious, gender and personal barriers. they feel a double whammy. Being there I share my personal stories, answering to their Q's was giving hope to them. It gave them hope that they can succeed too. Sharing one's life challenges can assist to tranform children's lives. Children are precious and they need to be heard. Being part of such children's lives was a great blessing for me.

    Creating roadblocks

    Friday, August 29, 2008, 12:19 PM [General]


     Are you creating roadblocks in your life? Have you ever felt that something is holding you back from greater happenings in your life? If so, it is time to examine your negative self-talk.

    Emily Cadie in her book says,

    'No Person or thing in the universe, no chain of circumstances, can by any possibility interpose itself between you and all good. You may think that something stands between you and your heart's desire, and so live with that desire unfulfilled; but it is not true. Deny it and you will see clearly that nothing can stand between you and your good. "

    Don't let the negative self-talk sabotage your future. Earlier this week, I was talking to a friend of mine. She had a hard time to believe that she was engaged in negative self-talk. So, she wanted to test it out. So, I asked her to keep a record every time she had a negative self-talk or thought. So, she did and set the timer for 1 hour. The timer went on after an hour. Her sheet was full. She couldn't believe it. She was surprised this test proved that she was creating roadblocks, for her life.

     Are you aware of your negative self-talk? Negative self-talk robs you, your energy and your future. Stop and Think for a moment! Is there anything standing between you and your own good ? If so, it is time to examine your self-talk.
