Mindful Change

“Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind.  To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.”

~King Whitney, Jr.

It’s about the real you. The intent of the 75 questions is to probe, to prompt a reaction, to get you to stretch, to press beyond tradition or boundaries, to think broader, to break free, and then give a thoughtful answer to the question.

The overall intent of the 75 questions is to capture change. The questions are to be a catalyst for inner change that leaves you feeling more dynamic, safe, powerful, intrigued, and authentic. You are praiseworthy.

Question 1:  What did you learn from making a mistake?

 

Happiness Heals Hearts

Daniel Skye has it right.  He just wants you to smile.

Happiness is about smiling, making your life better.  Happiness heals hearts.  When you are happy, your heart beats stronger and you have a little more pep in your step. You want to twirl, skip and share your smile.

Dr. Jonathan B. Levine, a renowned dentist, wrote this excerpt from a post for Dr. Oz:

“The smile is the window to the soul; it puts us at ease when we see people smile. Freely offered, no means of expression has the ability to make a complete stranger feel better or more compelled to return the favor. Smiles know no language barriers, no demarcations of race, gender, or class. It’s the one thing that is truly universal among humans. In any social interaction, professional or personal, people will intuitively gravitate towards those of us who smile.”

It’s true. Happiness portrayed  through a smile makes you feel better and by its intrinsic nature makes others feel better too.  In turn, your heart heals.  A happy life and a healthy heart go hand-in-hand.

Smile
