Where Would We Be Without Our Stories

August 22nd, 2010 in Health, Personal Growth[ 2 Comments ]

Last Thursday, after a long day at work, I walked to the bus stop eager to get there by 6:00 pm.  Why the excitement?  I wanted to settle in and listen to The Aware Show.   I usually read my email or a book while on the bus, so doing something different is always fun.   

Lisa Garr hosts a radio show called The Aware Show where she brings speakers from self-growth, spirituality or health areas and interviews them.   She is currently hosting a teleseminar series and as part of this series she had on Jennifer McLean.   Jennifer is an author, healer and entrepreneur. 

Life Lessons: The Benefits of Kindness

August 13th, 2010 in Health, Personal Growth, Relationships[ No Comments ]

Can you remember the last time you were kind to another person?   What did you say or do to show your kindness?  Did you celebrate a special occasion with them, listen to them, help them with a project or give them a compliment?

Kindness is a great attribute to own and some people naturally express good will to others.   Most of us are busy with our lives and kindness never seems to be a top priority.   It’s not that we are mean, rather our busyness takes over and we don’t consciously think about showing kindness to another person.  We just have too much to do.  What if there were benefits to this “kindness” thing.
