How to deal with criticism & improve your positive thinking

How to deal with criticism & improve positive thinking

Do you get hurt when you receive an unsolicited comment or criticism from someone close to you and would you like to know how to deal with criticism? Generally speaking, criticism sucks. It’s never nice to be at the receiving end of bad comments and even more when you didn’t ask for anyone’s opinion. A “friend”, once, told me that the item I wore (and loved!) didn’t suit me at all when I was telling her how much I loved that piece of clothing. I wasn’t hurt by her comment. I was in a good place in my life and when I narrated the conversation to my husband, it made me laugh thinking how rude, my friend’s comment was, given I hadn’t asked for her opinion.

I’m not sure if I have changed in a good or bad way but I certainly feel different with regular seismic kicks from my inner child who seems keen to get out and live her life to the full. How about you!? How are you feeling a few days in 2017? Business wise, 2016 was a big transitional year too. Closing the chapter on 10 years of my life when I sold the e-shop, was a big thing but I’m glad to say that it remains …

Happy New Year 2017

And so does the year 2017 begins…

2016 was a challenging, painful year for many people worldwide and close to us and sadly it’s not over for some but I’m absolutely convinced that we are turning a corner and here is what I wish for every single of you: * PEACE: To the risk of sounding like Miss World ????, I wish this world, our world…peace, love, understanding and gratitude and decent, honest, kind people in control of government matters. * HEALTH: To take care of yourself inside out by eating healthy whole foods and start exercising if you haven’t done it yet. Nobody is asking you to run a marathon but everyone can walk to work and it matters you matter! * LOVE: To love yourself just the way you are because YOU are unique and beautiful. * COURAGE: to make your dream comes true because believe me, you really can do this! * FORGIVENESS: To let go of things that hurt you & leave them where they belong…in the past. * RESPECT: To honour this planet we live on & make daily …
