I am a creature of habit. I love my little rituals and routines. I am very aware of this and take advantage of my ability to form habits.
I consider myself a mostly competent driver nowadays, but this wasn’t always the case. In fact, learning to drive was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. I needed my independence as a teenager.
I’ve never lived in a city where not having a car works. Even now, my job is several towns away from where I live. Learning to drive was the only way I could see myself getting the things I wanted – so I did it.
I had a bad habit of rear-ending people and backing-up into things when I first started to drive. My mother worried about me anytime I was out on the road (for good reason).
Now, at the age of 30, my main problem is “curb-checks”. Still a work in progress but better than I was yesterday.
In last week’s video I spoke about my experience with bullies. Some viewers commented on online bullies, inspiring this video talking about internet bullying and not taking things personally.
I’ve had run-ins with quite a few bullies over the years. Now, as I am getting older and wiser, I’ve learned to avoid bullies. How do I do this, by not allowing them into my life. (This was much harder to do in school.)
We are part of a culture that values hard work and long hours. Regardless, it is important to take time for yourself, even during an extended work day.
I’ve got an exciting update! I read each and every comment, email, and question. However, don’t always have time to respond back to them all. To make things more efficient, I’m going to start answering your questions in my videos!
Anxiety is on the rise globally. Many people, including some anxiety sufferers, may not know what anxiety is or how to deal with it.
It’s time we swallow our pride and start having these discussions. We need to talk about mental health.
