Learning how to navigate through life is something from which we can all benefit. Every day I try to get inspired by articles I read, podcasts I listen to and people I talk to. This section is devoted to sharing those morsels with you. So whether you're a client or not, I hope we can all be inspired and grow from them.
Even when life isn't perfect, search for something that makes you happy and embrace it.

Our personal beliefs are powerful beyond measure and often dictate our outcomes. They can work for or against us. Identify your limiting beliefs so you can push against them."

I want to share some morsels from a segment I watched on The Today Show last week.
The American Psychology Association came out with a study about stress in America today.
I thought it was important to share and provide some hope given the times we're living in.
"87% of Americans worry about rising prices.
84% are stressed over what is going on in Ukraine.
63% say the Pandemic has changed them forever.
These are pretty glaring statistics. But they went on to stress the importance of making what they called a "WORRY LIST". List everything that's keeping you up at night. Put them down on paper and upon review you may find that approximately 85% of the things you worry about will never happen.
Of the 15%, we become a bit desensitized because those are the things
we can actually do something about."
They also stressed the positive impact of including exercise in your day, taking the time for mindful and cleansing breaths and lastly, taking time to step outside yourself to enjoy the environment, the company of others or become part of a charitable cause. Life is hard sometimes, but if we make the effort to put in play some of these tools, they should help.
I found this quote on Pinterest. I liked it so much I wanted to share it as a morsel to reflect on. I hope it inspires and motivates you.
You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending. Unknown
Viktor E. Frankl was an Austrian neurologist, psychiatrist, philosopher, author and Holocaust survivor. I find his writings inspirational because they focus on the premise that we have the freedom to choose our attitude in any given situation and to respond accordingly. I wanted to share one of Dr. Frankl's quotes in this week's Morsel post:
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”― Viktor E. Frankl
