We have so many thoughts kicking around in our heads all day, every day – and even at night as we sleep! And if you read my post on Law of Attraction, you’ll know that our lives tend to reflect the content of our thoughts. Most of our thinking “just happens” – like breathing – it is on autopilot. One of the keys to recovery is to become more aware of those thoughts – in order to banish negative thoughts – something I’ve written many posts on in the past.

What would Nanny 911 say to us? In a practical sense, she’d have us identify our goal: What is our ideal state? Perhaps it’s to end our addictive behavior and be at peace – to live our lives “normally” or “free.”
Caretaking is when you spend a great deal of your time thinking, worrying and doing things for others. You do this at the expense of your self care.
Next time you see someone you think is “perfect” consider what they must be doing to create that image. You may think they look great and have it all, but what’s underneath that quest for perfection?
In this post, I’ll share a healing meditation that has really helped me over the years. When I was working in the corporate world and my life was over-full, I never could find the time to meditate.
