During this tender and often traumatic holiday season, we’re taking steps to spread more love, more joy and more badass honesty about what is right and well with this world. Before we get too far, do you want to learn how to be a badass?
You Can’t Pay It Back…
A tale from a few lifetimes ago: A piece of my past that was full of learning about boundaries, emotional/verbal abuse, co-dependency, and letting go. These early post-divorce years found me with the power of a fresh start.
However, my school teacher salary was stretched thin as saran-wrap and it was the first Christmas with my three little ones as a single parent. All of this began to feel unbearable and my main holiday concern was that I didn’t want my children to feel uber-poor or deprived.
Thanks to generous efforts that started showing up on our doorstep, one by one, our holiday was upgraded to “first-class”.
The Yellow Jelly Bean…
This one is a favorite of mine, especially around the holidays. Way back when, before starting SoulSalt, I was once a teacher in an elementary school. I had a student with a particularly turbulent home life.
One morning this young boy burst into my classroom before the school bell had even rung and offered me something I could not refuse. But on the other hand, I could not fully accept it either. Staring into his small hopeful eyes, something in me cried out and I had to rely on a higher power.
Three impactful ways to have difficult conversations…
Part of the support we offer at SoulSalt Inc. is how to reboot your neurochemistry. I am talking about Non-Violent Communication (NVC) and Conversational Intelligence® (C-IQ) courses, and how to approach conflict if it arises. This time of year things can become a bit stressful and chaotic.
It is likely you will cross paths with miscommunication, and let’s face it, someone is bound to slip up with the relatives and say something that they maybe shouldn’t have! In every aspect of your life, be it personal or professional, how to find your purpose in life or reinventing your career, chances are that you would benefit from learning these three ways you can have more peaceful and less confrontational exchanges. Conversational Intelligence is one of the more important characteristics of a leader.
