Capable of Becoming More

-- Quote of the Day --

"I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element.  It is my personal approach that creates the climate.  It is my daily mood that makes the weather.  I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous.  I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration; I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.  In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or dehumanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming."

-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

-- Conscious Discussions Radio --

Today, on Conscious Discussions Radio we learned about Helping Youth Deal with Stress -  this can include anxiety, anger, depression, and traumas such as illness or injury, and abuse or grief.

Dr Julie-Anne Sykley was our guest of the day, her specialties - as a psychologist, a community welfare officer, and in the youth industry… her career as a “helping professional” and her work as an author – all of these experiences helped her refine the tips we are going to learn today. So if you have teens, or pre-teens, or young adults in your life – this show may just prove to be the best thing you’ve heard in some time.

I saw a piece in the West Kootenay Advertiser regarding events happening between July 24-Sept 25 that I’d like to share with you. Apparently the Fortic BC and Terasen Gas companies are giving away more than 5000 clothes lines, and offering rebates for energy efficient laundry machines at a variety of events going on in that time frame (above). If you live in the South-Central region of BC, Canada – check out the site for locations, times and details at:

For those of  you who are interested in this topic, I have interviewed an American organization known as Project Laundry List in the past on the Conscious Discussions Radio show… Check it out the Project Laundry List Interview (hyperlinked for your convenience) and you can find the organization itself at:
