Beyond the Reading: Setting Boundaries

In today's reading, we are asked to not only mentally prepare for the hard work in front of us, but to also recognize the need for healthy boundaries.

Beyond the Reading: Empathy & Self-Expression

In yesterday's reading, we were provided the simple (yet difficult to execute) message of using empathy as an opportunity for our own self-expression. In Raise Self Esteem with the Lifeblood of Empathy, Bolton (2009) refers to empathy as lifeblood. When someone takes the time and effort to understand our emotions, to understand our side of… Continue reading Beyond the Reading: Empathy & Self-Expression

Beyond the Reading: Seizing Opportunities

Take advantage of what comes our way, act quickly, pursue it because we don't know for how long this opportunity will be available. There's an urgency attached to the words 'seizing opportunities'. We don't want to let something good pass us by. We don't want to be the one that missed out on something. We… Continue reading Beyond the Reading: Seizing Opportunities

Beyond the Reading: Putting Yourself Out There

When I was six years old, another child in my first grade class was having a birthday party. This was someone that I had played with, so when others started receiving their invitations and I didn't receive mine, it made perfect sense in my child brain that I should call this girl. Here is the… Continue reading Beyond the Reading: Putting Yourself Out There
