This is the first part of the depression series for the mental health awareness month.  Although depression is spreading as we speak, clinical depression is often not fully understood, and is naively, by those who haven’t experienced it, confused with normal sadness or feeling the blues. This post will show the stark differences between major…

Welcome Dream Big Partner: Avon 365!!

I am pleased to welcome the latest blogger to become a Dream Big Partner: Avon 365!!

 

Here is an excerpt from the Avon 365 About page::

Hello again!

I’m Tina, I live in the eastern part of Texas and yes it is hot and humid! Almost as hot as the Avon products that are on sale right now! I started this blog to help introduce myself to the public as a new Avon Representative. But I have other interests too.

I have another blog called invisibleillnessesblog.wordpress.com. I suffer from invisible illnesses and find myself unable to function on many days. This is why I decided to sell Avon through the internet instead of trying to go door to door like I have in the past.

Avon has streamlined their business so much that one can sell entirely online. That is my goal. To make some money to help supplement our household income and keep myself busy writing about their fabulous products and keep up with my invisible illnesses blog too.

Maybe I’m stretching myself a little thin, but I want to give this a try. Are you with me? Let’s move some Avon!

Welcome Dream Big Partner: Kim Knight – Author!!!

I am pleased to welcome the latest blogger to become a Dream Big Partner: Kim Knight – Author!!

 

KimKnight

Here is an excerpt from Kim Knight’s About page::

Kim is thirty four (born in 1983), and from London in the UK. She’s a mother to a beautiful toddler and a proud author of four romantic suspense novels and novellas, which includes the romance series Romance set in Paradise released in May 2017.  

 

Kim started her journey as a traditionally published author after she scored a publishing contract with a USA based publisher. She was over the moon! However, it became clear to Kim that things were not as she expected.

 

Therefore, she set out on her own journey, she dived head first into the world of self-publishing and republished two of her fictional stories, and became a proud self-published author also. Something great was unleashed, she’ll never look back in regret.

Welcome Dream Big Partner: Mind Elate!!!

I am pleased to welcome the latest blogger to become a Dream Big Partner: Mind Elate!!

 

 

Here is an excerpt from the Mind Elate About page::

Welcome to my blog! My name is Shahenaj Khan and I am a 25 year old London born, cat loving, soul searching, whimsical introvert (you can breathe now). I love reading, writing, and connecting with people on a deeper level. Topics such as psychology, the human mind, the soul and all things that you can never quite know everything about fascinate me.

 

Self understanding has always had me curious, but it was something that I felt I needed to develop throughout different stages of my life. During my happy times and during my not so happy times, I realized that no matter what was happening to me externally, my reaction or response to it kind of relied on how much I knew myself.

 

And so pondering on these experiences, while observing other people’s experiences, has broadened my understanding of human nature and of our emotions. Of our vices and our strengths. I feel that our self worth is dependent on how deeply we understand ourselves.

 

I believe that with this understanding, a healthy form of self love develops, as well as self respect, confidence and a comforting sense of self acceptance.

 

This is why I decided to share what I have learnt and what I feel through this blog. With the hope that it reaches as many hearts and minds as possible. With the anticipation that we can all connect with each others emotions, and with our journey of self discovery and understanding.

Welcome Dream Big Partner: Diary of a Recovering Codependent!!!

I am pleased to welcome the latest blogger to become a Dream Big Partner: Diary of a Recovering Codependent!

 

 

Here is an excerpt from the Diary of a Recovering Codependent About page::

Have you ever wondered how you ended up where you are in life? Have you ever asked; How did I get here? Why did this happen to me? When will it all end?

 

Have you ever wanted to just fall off the face of the earth? I did.  There was a time in my life when I just begged God to let me die. Truthfully, a few times. I hated my life, I hated who I was, I hated the thought of facing yet another day of faking it. My life was not a pretty place to be.

 

It was wracked with fear, guilt, shame, self-loathing, depression and complete, utter insanity. It was ugly and I was blind to the truth of how I ended up where I was.

 

I had to face the harsh reality; I was the cause. I could not blame the people in my life, the things that happened to me, or even God. I was where I was because of the choices I had made. I, and I alone, was responsible.

No Whining Wednesdays

Pearls Before Swine!

Pearls Before Swine

Welcome to Day One of No Whining Wednesdays! A new segment of The PBS Blog.

The No Whining Wednesday Badge The No Whining Wednesday Badge

What is NWW?

No Whining Wednesdays is something coined by Iyanla Vanzant that I decided to adopt into this blog. It means that for the entire day today you CANNOT do the following:

– Whine
– Complain
– Criticize

Here are some definitions:

To Whine – give or make a long, high-pitched complaining cry or sound; to grumble, murmur or complain in a feeble way.

To Complain – express dissatisfaction or annoyance about a state of affairs or an event; state that one is suffering from; state of grievance.

To Criticize – indicate the faults of (someone or something) in a disapproving way; to condemn, attack, discourage.

OK, now that we all know what whining, complaining, and criticizing is, there is only one rule: DON’T DO ANY OF THIS…
