Motivational Moments: What do you need to live stress free?
Monday, 29 September 2014 11:18
Do you ever think about how you would feel if you could spend most of your time doing things that make you feel good about yourself? I often think about all the things I have to do during the course of the day and what little time I have to do them. However, I never find myself thinking about what I could do during my long day that would help me to release some stress. Yes there is reward in completing goals and accomplishing your daily task, but I am talking about taking the time out to reflect on what it is you need to live stress free.
We have all heard the saying "Beauty is more than skin deep," and it is true. What we see on the outside must also be reflected on the inside for it to be true beauty. Modesty, humility, compassion, and consideration must be inwardly present as well. A pretty face and an ugly soul are not attractive. This is partial beauty at best. To be all together beautiful, you must possess inner and outer beauty.

The weather around here has started to change and the leaves on the trees are changing into such beautiful colors. Autumn is a wonderful time of year and a great time to start working on new goals and changing some things for the better.
I would like to review the topic of the 4 pillars of a healthy relationship. This is something that I have shared in the past, but it is a noteworthy topic that cannot be discussed enough. When two people come together an emotional bridge is created. This emotional bridge represents the feelings that they have for each other. Just as support is needed in a physical bridge, these feelings must be supported by underling principles. These principles serve as the foundation for the relationship, and they are supported by words and actions that work for the good of both people involved. These words and actions or pillars, are necessary for successful interaction.

I talk a lot about setting goals and finishing what you started. I also talk about staying focused and how this will help you to reach those goals you have set for yourself. But I also want you to know that you don't need to have a long list of goals that you want to complete right away. It starts with one goal.
