An observant surfer alerted me that it was possible to view unapproved comments on my site. Updates have been made to disallow page comments. All communication is now limited to direct calls to my cell or personal email. Forms have been added to collect comments and registration information and are sent to my personal email. My apologies to all, and gratitude to the alert observer.
An age when parental or any advice in often unheard or tempered with the notion that life is ahead of you, so have some fun. It’s not that serious. Okay. Whatever the situation, perhaps the TED Talk linked below will be worthwhile.
This video describes two types of thinking it’s good to be mindful of. Reminds me also of the Victor Frankel comment, something like …between the stimulus and the response, there is a space… It’s freedom… an awareness of choices in any circumstance…
Adam Gopnik LOL – A father learns to laugh out loud. Hear on The Moth, True Stories Told Live…
So I start pondering the subtle differences in our thinking, feeling, and experiencing when we communicate face to face, via email, txt, instant message, etc., what I might presume, and what it’s actually like. To stay fresh, I best go with the flow and start getting comfortable sweeping my finger back and forward, up and down across an illuminated alphabet. Slow, maybe, compact, yes, instantaneous… Let’s hear it for more swiping… lol
Thank-you anonymous for recommending.
Check out this TED Talk: Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are
She describes, better than I have, how we can use our body to actually change our thinking, temporarily, or in a more personal, congruent way. Almost needed a tissue… ;’-)
Check out this pretty amazing TED Talk by a kid nick-named Pork Chop as he explores what it’s like to be a kid, and what that’s like given what kids are told. A journey into identity…
feel what you feel, but don’t believe everything you think
The willingness to think what you think and feel what you feel–without necessarily believing that it is true, and without feeling compelled to act on it–is an effective strategy for treating anxiety, depression, food cravings, and addiction.
