Another one of my heroes: Marianne Williamson.

This time she is interviewed about grief, sadness, bereavement and other feelings of loss.

The simple message: to feel crap is entirely ok. To run away from those feelings through medication or senseless distraction is NOT.

Feel the pain for as long as necessary to move through the pain, and then move on. Life continues....

Love Brené Brown's work. Down to earth; profound; and very much resonating with what I believe to be "true".

I'm developing more and more insight and respect for what is called "Attachment Theory".

Put simply, Attachment Theory describes how the way our parents were emotionally available (or NOT!) for us as young children can determine how we behave towards our OWN kids and our fellow adults when we've grown up.

There is lots to say about this; the easiest intro is to have a look at the below videos by one of the experts in this field, Dr. Dan Siegel.

This topic is particularly relevant in cases of DV and other forms of relationship abuse, but in general in our relationships with EVERYONE around us 🙂

Have a look-see, and contact me if you'd like to know more about attachment styles and how to form more effective attachment styles.

One of the more profound statements in A Course in Miracles.
Once you really "get this", nothings stays the same. The world you see is the result of your perception.

Don't like it? Change your perception.
--------------
"Projection makes perception. The world you see is what you gave it, nothing more than that. But though it is no more than that, it is not less. Therefore, to you it is important. It is the witness to your state of mind, the outside picture of an inward condition. As a man thinketh, so does he perceive. Therefore, seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world. Perception is a result and not a cause."

Make this your Every-day-of-every-year's Resolution.

Takes care of all the other ones, I truly believe.

“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won't succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy. ” “You are not stuck where you are unless you decide to be.” ― Dr Wayne W. Dyer

"It's pretty rare that you could actually talk somebody out of their pain.

Acknowledgement can be the best medicine we have. It makes things better, even when they can not be made right."

Awesome and useful advice for people dealing with their own or other's pain/grief/loss.
