Toxic Positivity

Too much Sugar is Bad for your Health 

Can too much positivity be bad for your Mental Health? 

It is possible to be too positive. 

With all the hype about mindset there can be a push to look for the blessings and positivity to jump to gratitude in all situations.

Yes- to there is nothing wrong with the desire to get to a place of freedom, to feel grateful for the journey and the lessons along the way.

And I am not suggesting we stay stuck wallowing in self-pity and only focusing on how bad things can be.

Our Babies/Children are Souls with Their Own Journey

They come through us but do not belong to us

Problems with boundaries can begin in […]

3 Tips for Weathering Times of Crisis and Intense Change

“There is nothing permanent except change.” ~ Heraclitus

Change is something we all have to face as a part of being human in this world. 

Change comes in many forms and expressions in our lives. 

It can come slowly and gradually, a long progression of one step after another.

Or it may come on suddenly, hitting us with the force of a tidal wave and thoroughly destroying the way things were in one fell swoop.

There are times when we can do our best to plan and prepare for change. Processing larger life changes can help us to adjust to the natural cycles and rhythms […]
