Love Your Personality & Don’t Hide it Away.

Oh dear! My alter ego, Miss Personality herself, Tasheenga, is not happy that her blog hasn’t been entered into the V by Very Blog Awards. I think she feels a little bit left out! Her blog is still a fledgeling and maybe next year she’ll get the opportunity to shine. If she behaves!

She gets very annoyed at me when I instruct her to stay calm and quieten down. Sometimes she tries to help but quite often her input can hinder a situation rather than improve it.

Occasionally I allow her to help me to write my posts on We Are Holistic, but she’s safer over on her own little blog. She can rant and rave all she wants in her own little corner of the internet. Yes, I do value her input but I can’t let her think that she can completely take over. I need to balance all the different parts of myself. Ashamedly, I have to admit, I did try to keep her a secret but by following the advice of a very wise friend, I revealed the true identity of Tasheenga.

Did Curiosity Really Kill The Cat? For Years I Thought It Did!

When I hear the word ‘curiosity’, it reminds me of the time Mrs Palm Stinger (my school teacher) gave me six of the best with her worn out old ruler.  I was only about 8 years of age and in second class.  We were all standing in a circle, like the good little girls we were, doing our English reading.

There was a knock on the classroom door and Mrs Palm Stinger ordered us to remain quietly in our places.  As soon as the door closed behind her, the whispers and the giggling began. Of course, everyone was dying to know who was at the door, including me! The girls teased and dared each other to sneak a peek. Nobody budged! Feeling very brave that day,  I dashed to the top of the room and took a quick glance through the glass panel door. Continue reading

Perfect Therapist Wannabe.

 Perfect pile of stones-315466_1280

Do you ever wonder what it would be like to be perfect? To never put a foot wrong and to never say the wrong thing. Do you look at others and think that they are so perfect and they have the perfect life? Look closer and I bet you will find that they are not perfect at all and they don’t have the perfect life. Because what is that word anyway?

We all use the word ‘perfect’. We use it when we talk about the people we love. “My partner is so perfect.” “My baby is so perfect.” “My children are so perfect.” “Johnny is the perfect friend.” This is probably because we love them unconditionally and we don’t see any flaws that they may have or we simply choose to ignore them. We accept our loved ones just the way they are. In our eyes, they are indeed ‘perfect’. But what you perceive to be perfect will be quite different to what others will see.

Abandon Arrogance – Nurture Confidence.

When you hear the word ego, what do you think of? A pompous celebrity who thinks he’s better than everyone else? A selfish diva who can’t see past her own nose? Or simply something that takes a battering now and then?
