What IS Self-Love?

Self Love Finder

“To me, loving yourself is the hardest, bravest and most important thing you will ever do.”
-Kim Lawrence Kellner @selflovefinder

I have been advocating for self-love to anyone who would listen ever since I began my own self-love journey about 5 years ago. But what IS it?

What is Self-Love?

According to Jeffrey Borenstein, M.D., CEO of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, self-love is how we appreciate our whole selves – physically, psychologically and spiritually. For so long, I thought that self-love was about how you feel about yourself, but it wasn’t until I started on my own self-love path that I realized that it was more than that. Self-love is how you put your appreciation of yourself into action. Feelings are fleeting; they come and they go, so it is the action of appreciating and loving oneself that determines how self-loving…

A New Thing Springing Up — Connie Rosser Riddle

Last week, I talked with a friend and she noted that she’d been in a “blah mood”–but couldn’t figure out why. There were no new challenges, no worries at present about medical tests results for family or friends, nothing bad had happened. She could list things she was grateful for–but still felt her spirit was […]

Sweeney’s Stuttering Update – March 2021

Over the past year, I have gone on a very unusual journey with my speech and my Stutter. The past 12 months have seen a lot of ups and downs, and I have learned a lot about my Stutter, and the role that it plays in my life. While I usually keep these observations to myself, I have been thinking that they could make for the odd interesting ‘update’ post, and that’s exactly what we’ll be looking at today!

Let’s take a look at some of the thoughts I have, and things I have learned, about my Stutter in March 2021!

ABC’s of Active Listening: What Are They And How Can We Use Them?

Anxiety Bear

Have you ever been having a conversation with someone about something you considered important, and you could just tell that they weren’t paying attention/interested? I’m sure we’ve all experienced this at some point or another in our lives, and it can leave us feeling ignored, invalid and invisible.

I for one have experienced this many times throughout my life, and it is never something I seek to experience again. These encounters have left me with a personal motivation to try and treat others how I would like to be treated. For those of you who are new to this blog, I am studying to become a counsellor, and it was actually a recent lesson that inspired this post. During this lesson I realised just how important active listening skills were to me achieving my aforementioned goal, and believe they would be an asset to anyone who finds themselves pondering the…

Today is Going to be a Good Day!!

I woke up today in an absolutely amazing mood. I had a very late lie-in today, and as soon as I opened my curtains, all I could see was blue sky and the sun shining down. We don’t see sunny weather all that often in the Swansea Valley’s, and as it has been so bitterly cold recently, it was a very welcome surprise for me today.

The way that something so simple like the weather can have such a positive change on your mood never ceases to amaze me. I find that when the sun is out, I am naturally a lot happier, more energetic and more productive. So with all that being said, I know that today is going to be a good day!
