InnerSelf Newsletter: March 26th, 2017

Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.

This week we look at the things we do and how we do them. "How" being not so much the physical way of doing, but the attitude behind the action. Jude Bijou suggests that we Practice Simple Acts of Kindness. Barbara Berger asks us, Who Is Setting The Standards For Your Happiness?  And I bring you a new article I wrote on Rewards and Gifts: Doing What You Know Is Right For You.

And then, there's our relationship with self and with others. Nora Caron asks us: When It Comes To Love: Raging Waterfalls or Quiet Rivers? Thom Hartmann shares with us a way of Separating The Edison-Gene Child from ADHD Behavior. Briana and Peter Borten present 4 Ways to Build Confidence and Quiet Your Inner Critic. AJ Earley poignantly shares her experience of Coping With Guilt After A Loved One’s Suicide while Barbara Jaffe shares her Reflections on Aging.

We also bring you more than 55 Additional Articles on a variety of topics. Scroll down below the Editor's Choice articles for the links to all of these new articles.

Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

EDITOR'S CHOICE ARTICLES

How To Practice Simple Acts of Kindness

Written by Jude Bijou, M.A., M.F.T.

How To Practice Simple Acts of Kindness

With the avalanche of unkind words and deeds engulfing our lives today, it's time to buck the trend and resist. The goal is to move from judgment and feelings of separation to acceptance and connection. Acts of kindness are what will get us there.

Who Is Setting The Standards For Your Happiness?

Written by Barbara Berger.

Who Is Setting The Standards For Your Happiness?

Things just happen and then we judge them and react to them based on what we believe is good or bad. In other words, our reactions to events are determined by our ideas of what reality should be like in order to live up to our idea of what’s good.

Reflections on Aging and The Comfort of Growing Older

Written by Barbara Jaffe, Ed.D.

Reflections on Aging and The Comfort of Growing Older

I now have officially become someone who looks good ‘for my age,’ or so I have been told, which is another sign of aging. People don’t make such a comment unless you are old. They also say that 60 is the new 50 and 50 the new 40, and so on, but really?

4 Ways to Build Confidence and Quiet Your Inner Critic

Written by Briana Borten and Dr. Peter Borten.

4 Ways to Build Confidence and Quiet Your Inner Critic

Contrary to popular belief, you are more than your accomplishments. And conversely, you are more than your failures. Attaching your self-confidence to the outcome of your actions is like attaching it to the weather...

Separating The Edison-Gene Child from ADHD Behavior

Written by Thom Hartmann.

Separating The Edison-Gene Child from ADHD Behavior

Whenever we react to a person’s behavior--particularly a child’s--we can do it in either of two primary ways. One addresses the individual’s personhood and ties it to his behavior, and the other addresses his personhood and disconnects it from his behavior. This is a critical distinction.

When It Comes To Love: Raging Waterfalls or Quiet Rivers?

Written by Nora Caron.

 When It Comes To Love: Raging Waterfalls or Quiet Rivers?

Raging waterfall love is the kind that makes you lose your head, your focus, your center, and pretty much all your roots at the same time. It is the kind of love that gives you such an adrenaline kick each time that you cannot think about anything else...

Coping With Guilt After A Loved One’s Suicide: A Messy Necessity

Written by AJ Earley.

Coping With Guilt After A Loved One’s Suicide: A Messy Necessity

I should be grateful that I got an opportunity that so many don’t: to say “I love you,” before someone dies. I should feel lucky, right? I should feel endlessly lucky that that’s the last thing we ever said to each other.

Rewards and Gifts: Doing What You Know Is Right For You

Written by Marie T. Russell, InnerSelf.

Rewards and Gifts: Doing What You Know Is Right For You

I love rewards. And I've noticed that the Universe functions on a reward system. I suppose if you were looking at it from the opposite perspective, which many religions do, you might say the Universe punishes people. This is the premise of the belief in sins and the punishment of hell.

We add articles to the website daily
. Rather than wait for the newsletter, you can visit each section according to your interests throughout the week. Each section listed below is designed as its own "mini-website".

The "Living in Harmony" section includes articles on Health & Well-Being, Home & Garden, Pets, Leisure & Creativity, Finance & Careers, and Science and Technology.

The "Personal Development" area covers Attitude Adjustments (which includes Fear, Anger, Gratitude, Forgiveness), Relationships & Parenting, Spirituality & Mindfulness (including Meditation), Intuition & Awareness (including astrology), and Happiness & Success.

"Social & Political" covers topics that affect us personally yet deal with a more "societal" or "political" sphere. This area covers Environment & Climate, Democracy, Justice, Inequality, Economy, and more. These topics are very relevant for our communal journey on Planet Earth.
