Did you know this ?…………and most importantly do you listen, this is the big secret in life, are you aware of how many people listen or just hear you and are not listening ! All though I maybe blowing my own trumpet, I do know for sure, that one of my reasons of success in my Coaching Business is my ability to listen, I even hear words people do not say, as I personally dislike in a big way,  talking and know that people hear me but don’t listen, I would never do it to some one else, I also appreciate that the person in question has chosen me to be the receiver of their conversation whether it be business related or not, some people find it hard to talk and this is why we should always be grateful for any trust or confidence that another person would place in…

Remember in September Post #29 – God Saves From Suicide

My Loud Bipolar Whispers

How God Saves From Suicide

God saved my life. God saves and heals.

I am living proof of that. ~Susan Walz

Please don’t give up. Suicidal thoughts can end. There is hope. Recovery is possible and it happens. I am living proof of that.

The next video is another beautiful testimony about how God saves people’s lives. The christian rapper/hip hop artist, Sevin, is another example of that.

On the following video Sevin says:

I always had suicidal thoughts as a kid… I fell into an abyss and started self medicating. Anything to numb myself.

I walked into my room and put my gun to my head. In the moment I had the gun to my head, the holy spirit fell on me. I felt an overwhelming peace and acceptance. It literally went through my body and it changed me.

God came off the pages and jumped into my real life…

Song Lyric Sunday – “Talking In Your Sleep”

Being Lydia!

So, this week I am staying inside the box for a change. Helen over at This Thing Called Life One Day At A Time picked “sleep” as the theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday. This popped into my head almost immediately (well behind some Lions anyway).

“Talking In Your Sleep” went to No. 3 on the Billboard top 100 in early 1984 and was the most successful hit for The Romantics. Later that year British group Bucks Fizz had a hit version in the UK.

Usually, when someone talks in their sleep they reveal things to us we don’t want to hear. In this case, it seems that the woman in question is denying her feelings while awake and spilling the beans so to speak when she talks in her sleep.

It is a catchy tune and fun lyrics, making for a great song. Then there is the matter…

Lifting Taboos

relief-2457742_960_720It is so easy to brainwash our kids into behaving either the way we were raised or the way we want them to be raised. It is even easier to do when they are little kids. We create little mini versions of ourselves who wind up walking, talking, eating and even shitting the way we do.

In adoption however, our kids come to us with both literal and hypothetical suitcases. They come to us already with a way of doing things whether that means from an orphanage, a group home, another foster home, or straight from their first parents. So trying to “force” them into little mini molds of ourselves can lead to some serious consequences.

I was adopted into a very strange household. My adoptive mother had a husband and also a lover living under the same roof. I came to the home and was immediately made to become…
