Addiction No More: Hope and Wise Choices
June 26, 2014
Hosted by Dr. Paula Joyce
Addictions are a world-wide problem. How we treat a problem is influenced by how we think about it. Rarely do we talk about addiction as a form of abuse and yet, it is. This time it's self-abuse. We've talked in past shows about the fact that 90% of our self-talk is negative. I'd say that's self-abuse. Can we change it? Absolutely! And, that's the difference between an addiction and a habit--consciously making a choice. Every moment of every day we make choices about what we think, what we say, how we act, what we put in our bodies--whether we treat ourselves and others with love, disinterest or cruelty. We are in charge of our lives. What are you choosing? One of my pet peeves is the automatic response that television characters have to a stressful day. Invariably, it's: "I need a drink." No one "needs" a drink. How about replacing it with: I need to meditate or breathe deeply or exercise or laugh? It's time to choose wisely! Join us Thursday to learn about hope and choosing wisely.
Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit
Thursday at 8 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
Learning to see life from a spiritual perspective can change the way we think, which changes everything. As we let go of fear, worry, regret, blame, anger, guilt, resentment, jealousy and shame, we can create the loving, joyful, prosperous, healthy life that we want and deserve.
The best or worst place to live is in our own mind. You will learn how to weed out the negativity and to be grateful and positive in word, thought and deed, resulting in your ever-increasing happiness. Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit is broadcast live every Thursday at 8 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
