Be The Person That Others Can Trust and Rely On


How we walk with the Broken speaks louder than how we sit with the Great
Angela Buttimer  says, “Great leaders, healers, and sages have demonstrated this truth for centuries. People with this ability have emotional substance, compassion, and character. They are driven by something within that is other-oriented (rather than self-obsessed). It's easy and fun to hang with people when they are on top of their game. Are you able to be there for them when they hit a wall, when they make a misstep, when they dip into the valley? And who will be there for you when you come undone? Too often people invest in others who are unable or unwilling to be there in any meaningful way. Invest in healthy, supportive, and reciprocal relationships. And be the presence others can trust and lean into during difficulties.

Lying

Liars lie and keep lying knowing that even the most horrible lie when found to be totally untrue still leaves a sticky residue. You can't stay in a liar's orbit and not get sticky. Step away totally so you don't normalize the liar. Step away before you become use to his constant barrage of attacks and deceit. If you are normalizing a liar's behavior, take what he says in print and read it out loud to a ten year old child and try to justify and normalize the nastiness. Then you may get clarity.

Quote  is by Adolf Hitler from Mein Kempf:

Smiling for Your Health

I did a long interview recently on smiling for Shape Magazine that will come out in a few months.
I did research on smiling when I wrote my book, "Success Signals," and more research as the National Spokesperson for the Natural Dentist products, Yes, I know about a ridiculous amount of research on smiling. 
In this cold and flu season, I advise you to start smiling and don't stop till spring. Smiling can help you fight off a cold and boosts the immune system.  While smiling, your body relaxes and so your immune system reacts more quickly and effectively against invaders. The Department of Clinical Immunology at Loma Linda University School of Medicine found that, when smiling, the serum cortisol levels (stress level) decrease and, instead, the number of white blood cells and natural killer cells increases. So if you want to fight off a nasty cold in the future, forget going to the pharmacy, Just Smile!
