I learned a lot more this week about Mind, Thought and Consciousness and living “from the inside out” as described by Michael Neill and others. Understanding the principles behind how life actually works can and will transform anyone’s life. I’d love to discuss this understanding with anyone else who’s interested. Feel free to contact me!

Here’s what else I learned last week:

  • There’s no psychological trauma that can’t be “cured” by changing your relationship to the memories that originally caused the trauma. – George Pransky (paraphrased).

  • I re-watched “A Fish Called Wanda” the other night which I remembered as an extremely funny movie. While I didn’t seem to find it quite as amusing this time around, I realized how beautiful Jamie Lee Curtis was. Then last night I watched “The Rat Race.” Coincidentally, it was starring Jamie Lee’s dad, the infamous Tony Curtis. He too was a very good looking person. Interestingly enough, they don’t look anything alike! Both good actors, however.

Here’s what I learned last week:

Monday, Feb. 24, 2014

  • Skiing is kind of like riding a bike, it does come back to you. But, I wouldn’t start right out on a big hill when it’s been 25+ years since you last skied. (I’m glad I had the sense to realize that when I went today!)  Read the rest of this entry »

  • It’s amazing to see how our body’s default is to heal. I’ve been watching the daily healing of my cut thumb with awe. (Wish I had been taking daily pics.)

Last week was definitely an interesting one for me. Lots of learning through books and videos!

Also, I wanted to mention that my husband and I are gearing up to do a stair climbing fundraiser for the American Lung Association on February 22.  They ask us to each raise a minimum of $100 in order to participate. While I’ve reached my goal through promoting it on Facebook, my husband (who’s not into self promotion like I am) could still use some donations. If you’ve got a few bucks you don’t mind parting with for a good cause, please consider donating to this worthy cause through my husband’s link here.

You’ll notice a lot of references to Hay House and some of their authors in what I learned last week, because I listened to many of their “Start the New You Now” interviews which were only available last week. There was definitely some interesting content, although much of it overlapped because their authors and what they write about are very similar. Read the rest of this entry »

What I Learned Last Week (Jan. 6 – Jan. 12, 2014)

Last week was definitely an interesting week of learning for me. Something that I’ve come to realize, not just this week but since I embarked on my new adventure, is that life is supposed to be joyful. It’s something I’ve pretty much lived anyway, but I never realized that it was life’s intention for everyone. (Sadly, not everyone lives this way.) There will likely be a blog post about this coming in the future as I ponder the concept more deeply. Meanwhile, here are some of the other things I learned last week: Read the rest of this entry »

  • That I can go a whole week without any alcohol. (Although this may be the first time I have in many, many years.)

Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2013

  • Being downwind from a Chinese Food restaurant’s fried food smell when you’re running can cause you to almost barf at the side of the road.

As you’ll see below, it’s a good thing we don’t do anything for Christmas day!

  • How to cook filet mignon.
  • Jim Carrey wrote himself a check for $10 million (before he ever had money) and kept it in his wallet. He gave himself a few year deadline to make that much by a certain day, and he just made it!

What I Learned Last Week (12/16/2013 – 12/22/2013)

When I’m not doing something physically active or cooking, I spend a lot of my time reading and listening to educational/inspirational videos. In order to try to remember a bit of what I’m learning (even if it’s just silly stuff) I decided to write down a few things that I learn each day.

In that spirit, here’s what I learned last week: Read the rest of this entry »
