When You're Ready To Make A Change

#ChooseJoy

Find time by prioritizing

Often times when I speak with people, whether in a business, social, or personal relationship, it seems that much of their trouble is around priorities.  Many people are trying to do too many things.  Others are frustrated with the way their life has taken over their happiness and sort of sucked it up and out […]

Prioritize and Choose Joy

I have been listening to people gripe about their jobs and their church, lately.  I would suggest there is no perfect job, no perfect church, and even no perfect person (except for Jesus Christ).  Let me see if I can shine a little light on some ways to prioritize your values and choose joy. I […]

Pam’s favorite tip to get to sleep

I don’t often have trouble sleeping, but I did find myself wide awake one night a couple weeks ago.  It was quite annoying, just lying in bed – awake – waiting to fall asleep.  No fun!  I can see how people who struggle to get to sleep at night could get frustrated by staying awake. […]

Love like a child

Have you ever observed a young child, about the ages of 1-4, interact with others?  Oh, to have such innocence and love with abandon! When our granddaughter was two,  she never met a stranger.  She said “Hi” to everyone, smiled and waved at total strangers.  She’d walk right up to another child on the playground […]

Parents vs. Grandparents

As parents many of us try to “do it right”, be the perfect parents, yada-yada. Regardless, try as we might, most of us did not end up as the “perfect parents.” Of course hindsight is 20-20, and as grandparents we get to give it another try. However, it’s totally different! My dream has come true. […]

Self-talk

We’ve all heard about the effects of positive or negative self-talk.  This week I observed both. I was playing pickleball and my partner had missed a couple shots.  I looked at her and she said, “I’m so ashamed of myself.”  Astonished, I asked her why and she said, “I’m not playing well.”  I told her […]

Emotional Rollercoasters

I know several people who seem to be up and down, emotionally, throughout the course of a single day – and in any given week, they run the full gamut of emotions and are just all over the board. It seems that these folks are responding to every situation in their lives. The way they […]

Check Your Face

I’m sure you have heard the terms “non-verbal communication” and “poker-face.” Let me just confess, right now, I could never play poker. When a thought runs through my head, my mouth may know better than to speak it, but my face just says it all! That may be one reason I work well with special […]

Do you have a “strong-willed child?”

During a conversation my friend commented, “But I know you. You’re gonna do what you’re gonna do.” I had to chuckle, because I thought I had left that behavior behind me many years ago. My husband then chimed in, “We know where our boys get it from.” To which I promptly deflected the blame onto […]

Make eye contact

A few days ago, I saw a couple of young girls get off the school bus, which was met by their father. As girls tend to do, they both started talking to their dad as soon as their feet hit the pavement. The dad never took his eyes off his phone (or perhaps slightly). He […]
