Today’s Mindful Moment: Grateful for those who are leading the way through this COVID crisis with kindness, compassion and strength. Giving of themselves for the sake of others. This weeks challenge… Take time to appreciate and acknowledge the sacrifice and work they are doing.
Teen life can be filled with so much drama. They face so many challenges to belong and be accepted by their peers, while trying to figure out and develop healthy friendships. Part of our role as parents is to model what healthy looks like. We all have been hurt by words and actions of others, we all have had bad days, but it doesn’t give us the right to be mean or cruel to others as a way to deal with the pain. In this week’s podcast, Bethany talks about how to create a drama and bully free zone starting at home with your teens.
Have you ever found yourself hustling to prove your worth? Trying to please people at work, church, school, and basically everywhere you go? When we don't know our value and self-worth, we are willing to sacrifice who we are for the sake of belonging. Our hustling eventually catches up and only sets us up for burnout, resentment, anger, and exhaustion. Our value and self-worth can only be defined by how we truly see ourselves. Listen as Bethany shares how the hustle began for her and how we can begin to discover our value.
We all at one time or another are guilty of judging others for their actions, beliefs, choices, and disagreements. When we fall prey to judgement we shut the door on true connection because we can become blinded by our own perceptions of truth. Listen as Bethany shares how it is possible to love even when you disagree; show compassion in the midst of differences; and bridge the great divide when you seek to understand.
