As part of my new years resolutions I decided that I need to appreciate people that are in my life and have a valuable contribution more often. With this in mind I think it's important to expand on it by saying "sayonara" to those who don't appreciate me and be cautious of them in the future.
Relating to the previous post about coping mechanisms I need to learn how to change my attitudes about both groups of people.
I need to learn to tell people I appreciate them because I know what it is like to not be appreciated. But also need to express my feelings diplomatically when someone upsets me and learn how to appropriately deal with issues that arise from people's attitudes towards me. If any of that made sense haha!
So what I want to do is be able to apply something I saw on tumblr once "Before you speak, ask yourself: Is it kind? Is it necessary? Is it true? Does it improve on the silence?" - Sai Baba

Actually this blog expands on this thought and I think that it is very insightful! (http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-7086/5-questions-to-ask-yourself-before-you-say-anything.html)
I have the tendency to rant about something if someone really urks me or has done something to hurt me.
I think a good way to deal with this might be to spend an hour alone for a while (should the situation allow) do a little bit of meditation and/or yoga then try and deal with the emotions myself then if someone asks me about it apply the questions in which Sai Baba stated. This is how I plan to carry out my new years resolutions
I am a 25 year old nurse, who is trying to find herself. This blog will contain epiphanies I have, my yoga progress and other such things. Enjoy. :)
