ReNEW YOU Emotional Vitality Tip. Small Steps Matter.

blue, peach, blue, 300 x 300

Last year on this date, I noted: “Today I learned through my experience that sometimes when we feel stuck we just haven’t created neural pathways for what we are doing yet. Just forge ahead, the pathways will be created and things will become easier.” – Carolyn Calton

This really is true. I’m so glad to be a little further away from trauma. The power of free choice combined with the power of God and the powers within our bodies to rewire and heal are absolutely amazing.  I’m experiencing it, and I can tell the difference.

To any of my friends who suffer or who have loved ones that suffer please know that there is so much hope. Just take one step at a time. We may want to rush progress, but just taking one small step in the right direction makes ALL the difference!

Your influence, even through hardship, will ignite the power of generations!  Don’t give up!  There are others who need the example of your courage.  You may never really know the positive ripple effect of each small step you take.  I INcourage you to take one small step in the direction of your dreams today.  May God bless and sustain you as you do.

To your happiness,
Carolyn

Can positive memories help treat mental health problems?

Dr. Daniel Amen says it this way on Facebook:

A study highlighting the effectiveness of using positive memories and images to help generate positive emotions has been published by researchers. The work suggests that savouring positive memories can generate positive emotions. Increasing positive emotion can have a range of benefits including reducing attention to and experiences of threat.

I have learned that when coming out of traumatic experiences sometimes everything in the past seems to become tainted.  There is a desire not to look back anymore because it’s either too painful or too confusing.

There are some memories with people you’ve loved or trusted who have not breached that trust, or happy memories with loving others purely from your own heart, like children, that can nourish and strengthen TODAY’s ChangeMakers (you and me)  in very good ways.

INspired Action Step:  Be proactive in savoring at least one positive memory daily to GENERATE positive emotions. After all, we are focused on the generations.  To be a positive INfluence, we must ReGENERATE and ReNEW ourselves first.

ReNEW YOU. Think About It Thursday Reminder: EXAMPLE

TmT INspirations..., yellow bubbles 300 x 300

Great blessings can come out of any difficulty when wisdom is used for personal growth.

Wisdom is the third step in JOURNALriffic’s 4 Steps of Discovery.

A principle is a natural law.

There are laws that govern the physical world, like gravity,
and laws that govern happiness in human interactions, like love, respect, and honesty.

This month, we have been exploring the principle and power of

the example of SERVICE.

By doing so, we refine our emotional state of heart to
improve our sense of well-being and enrich our meaningful relationships.
By integrating these principles, we strengthen ourselves, our family and family lines.

INspired Thought: “As you quiet your mind and follow your thoughts, keep a non-critical perspective, and remain open to the path of thought that is unfolding to your awareness — then answers will emerge. Discernment (good judgment and keen insight) is needed as wisdom is applied to the thoughts and decisions of your life. …You possess an inner knowledge that will help you identify those things that are truly in your own best interest – in a self-nurturing, rather than selfish, self-demeaning or self-destructive way. You must make a decision as to what to do, do it, and then learn from the results. Was it in your best interest or not? If not, make a different choice next time. Overcome any fear of making mistakes by feeling the soul-stretching, yet personally liberating, benefits of moving forward and gleaning wisdom.” –Carolyn Calton, JOURNALriffic

E- 4 Winter. Think About It Thursday

Thursday JOURNALriffic Guided-journaling Prompt

Remember that life is happening for you, not to you. It’s the lessons we learn from adversity that help us grow and remember who we really are. With that perspective, ponder upon the principle you’ve chosen, and seek wisdom.

  • Think of an experience in your life in which this month’s principle or its absence played a role. Ask yourself, “Did I identify the opportunity for growth in this experience and use my conscience-guided wisdom to grow personally?”
  • As part of your personal history, write down the wisdom you gleaned and the insight you gain as additional understanding comes forth. Use your own words just the way they come to your mind.
  • Reflect upon the principle, notice your sincere desires to progress and then set your intention to receive other ideas, insight and strength that will help you to continue to grow. Remain open-hearted and open-minded to receiving further enlightenment as it comes.

Turn your pain into purpose.
Live in alignment with principles that govern happiness.
Follow your desires to help, not hurt, yourself and others.
Elevate your thought patterns, habit patterns and family patterns.
