Why Complain?

Are you a complainer? Are you ready to do something different?

What’s really happening when someone blames and shames you? If you stopped taking it personally, what would you be feeling?


What do you generally do when someone blames you for his or her feelings? Do you find yourself taking it personally and blaming yourself? This is what Melinda struggles with:

The Foundation for Abundance

Are you aware of the vast difference between expressing gratitude from your ego wounded self or from your loving adult self?


“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”~Eckhart Tolle, Author of The Power of Now
