Questions of the soul: About A Boy

Are you thinking about a man today? Ugh. We are too. 

As you try to decide what to do, ask yourself these questions: 

  1. Does he inspire you to be better? Or does he make you feel like you aren’t good enough?
  2. Does he look for reasons to be with you? Or excuses to get away from you?
  3. Does he help you smile? Or make you cry?



Tip #10: Don’t get mad

This advice applies to the petty stuff – and maybe even the bigger things that you can’t change. I’ve found that anger is not that functional of an emotion. When you need to see, anger can blind you. When you need to understand, anger can numb you to the needs of others.

Let’s count to 10. Let’s sleep on it. Let’s call a friend who is objective and can speak us off the proverbial ledge…

Try it, let us know how it goes.




Tip #9: More than one way

Clear strategy and leadership solutions

Clear strategy and solutions for business leadership symbol with a straight path to success as a journey choosing the right strategic path for business with blank yellow traffic signs cutting through a maze of tangled roads and highways.

Duh, Angela. 

No, I know. I’m just thinking about how 5+5 = 10 but so does 6+4, and 8+2 etc.,

In many scenarios in life there are a couple different ways to reach an end result. I know I get frustrated when something isn’t working how I thought it should, or the way I wanted it to.

Sometimes we have to be open to a different set of numbers, a different strategy, a different way of making things happen. 

We don’t sacrifice the goal, but we open our mind to new opportunities. 

This thought helped me not to feel frustrated this morning. Hope it helps you.



Tip #8: Introduce Yourself



ARG, don’t make the same silly mistake that I made tonight.

Scenario: You arrive at a conversation where two people are talking. You know one of the people, you don’t know the other. The person you know says hello and proceeds to make small talk, and little jokes with you while the person you don’t know stands (somewhat awkwardly) next to you both.

Ideally, the friend that you know would introduce you, but if he/she doesn’t – stop the conversation and say, “Oh, by the way, I don’t think we’ve met, I’m Angela.” Ask how they know each other, make them both laugh, smile a lot, and now you’re queen of the conversation.

This is so easy and such a great way to meet new people and feel like a champion.

Why oh why am I just thinking of this now?!



Tip #7: Holding on to resentment makes you weak

I listened to this talk this morning and the speaker made a comment that stuck out to me:

 Holding onto resentment, “Diminishes your progress and damages your ability to have healthy relationships.”

Countless studies by LinkedIN, Forbes Magazine, Inc. etc., have proclaimed that strong relationships are the foundation of successful business – I would also add that it’s a main ingredient to a healthy and happy life. We want to have strong relationships with ourselves, our God, and the people with whom we interact on a daily basis. 

As we search our hearts and minds are there resentments that we are holding onto? Can we let them go?
