Difficult People
Date: July 5, (Wednesday), 12:15 PM – 12:45 PM.
Location: Webinar; link to be sent to registered participants.
Few things can make us feel crazier than expecting something from someone who has nothing to give.  We may have spent years trying to get someone to accept or give us common courtesy in a certain way when that person either will not or is unable to give back.  We can learn to accept this reality and release others to be who they actually are.  We can love and care differently in a way that is best for that person and even better…what is best for us.

Appreciating Our Past
Date: July 12, (Wednesday), 12:15 PM – 12:45 PM.
Location: Webinar; link to be sent to registered participants.
It is easy to be negative about past mistakes and unhappiness.  The family, social and work relationships we have experienced have taught us necessary lessons and we can emerge from the most painful circumstance with strong insight that can most certainly be the greatest foundation of our beauty and abilities.  We can become brave and courageous in the future because of our past.

Going With the Flow
Date: July 19, (Wednesday), 12:15 PM – 12:45 PM.
Location: Webinar; link to be sent to registered participants.
Many of us are fearful of sharing our imperfections because we feel vulnerable.  Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it.  Embracing our vulnerabilities is a scary proposition but loneliness, fear and emptiness comes from our desire to be perfect and to be seen as faultless.  When we become brave enough to be who we really are, we can then be free to discover the beautiful potential we possess.

Difficult People
Date: July 5, (Wednesday), 12:15 PM – 12:45 PM.
Location: Webinar; link to be sent to registered participants.
Few things can make us feel crazier than expecting something from someone who has nothing to give.  We may have spent years trying to get someone to accept or give us common courtesy in a certain way when that person either will not or is unable to give back.  We can learn to accept this reality and release others to be who they actually are.  We can love and care differently in a way that is best for that person and even better…what is best for us.

Appreciating Our Past
Date: July 12, (Wednesday), 12:15 PM – 12:45 PM.
Location: Webinar; link to be sent to registered participants.
It is easy to be negative about past mistakes and unhappiness.  The family, social and work relationships we have experienced have taught us necessary lessons and we can emerge from the most painful circumstance with strong insight that can most certainly be the greatest foundation of our beauty and abilities.  We can become brave and courageous in the future because of our past.

Going With the Flow
Date: July 19, (Wednesday), 12:15 PM – 12:45 PM.
Location: Webinar; link to be sent to registered participants.
Many of us are fearful of sharing our imperfections because we feel vulnerable.  Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it.  Embracing our vulnerabilities is a scary proposition but loneliness, fear and emptiness comes from our desire to be perfect and to be seen as faultless.  When we become brave enough to be who we really are, we can then be free to discover the beautiful potential we possess.
