Teens and adults can get bogged down with ‘silent life suckers’ you know, the things that tell you, how you should be, think, feel .  What is and isn’t ‘in’ or acceptable, unattainable images constantly in your face.  All these ‘silent life suckers ‘ can and do start to create doubt, low self-esteem, lack of confidence and in some cases anxiety....

Have you ever been called a ‘loose cannon’

I hope that question doesn’t offend as it isn’t meant in that vein at all.

Did you know…you have between 50,000 and 70,000 thoughts per day…fascinating isn’t it?   [caption id="attachment_2127" align="aligncenter" width="196"] NLP. The power of thought[/caption]   It’s also a phenomenal number of thoughts to be having; however, our minds are so clever that they ‘filter’ these thoughts so that only the important ones are actually retained by us.
