What Size Is Your Thrill?

Posted on: January 28th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

One of the ways I feel the most joy is to be out in nature. I don’t spend a lot of time outside nearly as often as I would like, mostly because I don’t make the effort and I find a million other things I feel I need to get accomplished. Having lived out in the country for several decades, I know this is where I find the most peace.

My husband and I recently decided to return to Chile, South America, which is one of my favorite places on Earth. It most likely is because I spent much of my childhood there. As part of the trip, we booked a fly-fishing trip to the Southern part of Chile as it is famous for its catch and release trout, snow capped Andes Mountains everywhere you look, and the most turquoise colored . . .

What Are You Thinking And How Are you Thinking?

Posted on: January 14th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

There are many ways to delve into your own thoughts and also someone else’s. I want to explore two different ways of thinking about your own thoughts and also  exploring other people’s thoughts.

Have you ever asked anyone what he or she is thinking, or has anyone ever asked you?  Some people love to be asked to share their current thoughts and others may resent the perceived intrusion into their private mind.  How do you feel about being asked?

I used to think it was a lazy person’s way of starting a conversation until I started to ask others and myself why this question is ever posed. Here are some things I found in my casual research.  You may want to know what others are thinking because:

~ You really do want to start a conversation.

~ You are trying to determine someone’s emotional . . .

What Do You Consider A Wasted Day?

Posted on: January 7th, 2015 by Sharon Ballantine

Each of us has a different definition regarding what we consider to be a wasted day, based on how we prioritize what we want to accomplish in any given day and also in our lives. I would like to explore some of these definitions and offer you an expanded perspective so you never feel like you’ve waste a precious day.

Have you ever said to yourself or heard someone else say, “today was a complete waste.” What did you or they mean? Was it a waste of your time, energy or effort, or did you just not accomplish what you set out to?  If you got yourself out of bed this morning how can it be a wasted day? It isn’t practical to think that you will accomplish everything you want to everyday, but every day of our lives can have . . .

What Is A Mistake And How Can You Stop Making Them?

Posted on: December 31st, 2014 by Sharon Ballantine

I sometimes start my articles with the literal meaning of whatever the word or subject I’m about to write about. It can help inspire me and often highlights the difference in my own point of view. What is a mistake? We often think of mistakes as: understanding or interpreting something incorrectly, making a wrong judgment, or to blunder in the choice of something, to name but a few definitions.

What if I told you it’s possible to never make another mistake, or at least the absolute bare minimum? It may sound like a bold statement, but it is within the realm of possibility. I’m going to share the process with you, but first I want to delve into the anatomy of a mistake as we generally might view them.

What are some of the feelings associated with making mistakes? Thinking we have . . .

Throw Your Cares To The Fire

Posted on: December 16th, 2014 by Sharon Ballantine

Thoughts are energy and every thought you have has an energetic power that is emitted from you. This affects how other people feel around you. Don’t you feel the energy from others? Being around some people feels really good and being around others can feel really bad. You are feeling their energy, which began with their thoughts.

So, on one hand your energy is emitted out, but this energy is also held in your body and can become stuck. Positive energy held will enhance you and feel good, as it contributes to your wellbeing. Negative thoughts (energy) that you hold in your body block off your wellbeing feel bad and can eventually cause physical discomfort and disease. What types of energy do you want to release? Any thoughts and feelings that feels bad, such as worry, anger, grief, limiting beliefs, fear . . .

The One Minute Mood Spiral

Posted on: December 10th, 2014 by Sharon Ballantine

Last weekend my husband and I decided to take a much-needed break from our condo remodel schedule. We don’t get to the movies as often as we would like but we just wanted to sit in the dark and be mindlessly entertained.  This kind of setting is when I often hear things that really inspire me, and get me thinking. It happens during those times when I’m relaxed and simply listening.

Two people in the movie were having a simple dialogue about emotions, I think. Then one of them said something I found to be such a truth.

“ It takes 10 times longer to put yourself back together (emotionally) than it does to fall apart.”

I thought wow, why is that? How can it be so easy for us to spiral downward and feel bad and then struggle to regain our wellbeing? . . .

Your Only Job Is To Stay Happy And Positive

Posted on: December 3rd, 2014 by Sharon Ballantine

What are among the things, which can cause you the most stress? In your busy life, you can become overwhelmed because there is so much to accomplish in your day and on your “to do” list. It can make you feel like you have numerous jobs.  Your day job requires your time and energy, and your family and friends do too. Not to mention running a household, whether it’s just you or a family of many. And let’s not forget the upcoming holidays and shopping. You may be re-running your to do list in your head to the point that it’s distracting and keeping you from enjoying your present moment. I know that’s happened to me.

Do you find yourself going into action and trying to accomplish your list when you are in angst and stress and wondering how you will . . .


What Emotional State Do You Default To?

Posted on: November 26th, 2014 by Sharon Ballantine

Have you ever given much thought to your emotions? They are those strong feelings you have such as love, anger, joy, hate and fear. Don’t we tell others or ourselves that we are having an emotional moment or that we’re feeling emotional sometimes? We generally mean that we are in the middle of experiencing or expressing any one of the many emotions we carry inside of us.

Each of us is an emotional being. We all possess the same emotions but each of us uses these emotions in a different way. How you use your emotions and which ones are most common for you may be determined by how you grew up and which ones were prevalent in your family. Having said that, you may not resemble your family patterns at all but have developed your own unique emotional patterns, which . . .


Do Your Food Cravings Control You?

Posted on: November 19th, 2014 by Sharon Ballantine

By definition, a craving is “a great or eager desire; a yearning or a longing.” Doesn’t this sum it up for how we sometimes feel when we want a certain food?

Don’t many of us have food cravings at one time or another that seem to take us over? Those cravings that feel like there’s nothing you wouldn’t do to get your hands on what it is you’re wanting. It can be intense and can feel like you have no control and your craving is controlling you.  But is it?

Food cravings aren’t necessary for your physical survival although many would dispute they can be necessary for your emotional wellbeing. Cravings are mind hunger; physical hunger is what kicks in when we need to have food for our bodies to survive. Certain foods release chemicals in our brains that can produce intense . . .
