What Do You Do When Life Won’t Cooperate?

#KaciDoesKickStart – Navigating Frustrating Stimuli!

Very many times in the past, I have not responded to a frustrating stimulus in the best manner. I will often start dumping the thoughts in my head (which are unsane as @DrKashey would say and emotion driven) immediately out into words. This does not help in any capacity. It only makes my frustration worse…

How to Make Decisions on Purpose and With Purpose!

So many people get stuck in the yo-yo pattern with habits NOT because they can’t DO what’s in their best interest, but because they (unintentionally) aren’t thinking in terms of making decisions based on THAT perspective. The all-or-nothing cycle gets perpetuated simply because they make decisions based on what they think they “should“ do, rather…

The Only Way Around Is Through! {Vlog}

Every time you avoid something, you teach yourself that it has power over you.  By attempting to circumvent, you reinforce belief patterns that you are not capable of more than your present state. Also, when you don’t choose to do the work of facing it, you instill a mentality that shortcuts and quick fixes are…

#KaciDoesKickStart – Distract the Toddler!

This week as part of the KickStart Program, we are learning how to tame our inner toddler (the brat that screams for unhealthy coping mechanisms when we are stressed, bored, etc.) and say yes to ourselves instead of giving into the “child’s tantrum.” We were tasked to come up with our own distraction techniques and…

Ready To Do Life On Purpose & With Purpose?

“As we work and achieve, we pile up titles and money. We accumulate assets and influence. We build a life, as they say. And a life is made up of things: Our job. Our house. Our car. Our relationships. Our reputation… But the Stoic knows that we never really own anything. All that we possess…
