For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

There are a couple of things that I heard at the conference Saturday. Sylvia Brown talked about relationships. She's a firm believer in not being around toxic people because of one's health. It seemed so easy to her - just do it - I don't find it that easy.

Some things she said:

Speak NICELY. You don't have to be mean to get your point across.

Learn how to say no, nicely

Suffering opens you up, it expands your soul. (It's good for you).

Make a list of the people in your life, rid yourself of the toxic ones.

Take the negative of your life and turn it into positive.

God knows your motive, your heart.

Keep trying, eventually you will find your way/life.

Do one thing anonymously for someone, every day.

Ways to help take care of yourself:
stop all criticism
forgive yourself
don’t scare yourself
be gentle, kind, and patient with yourself
be kind to your mind
praise yourself
be loving to your negative side
take care of your body
mirror work (looking at yourself)
love yourself …now
support yourself
have fun

Lastly, I saw that there are so many hurting people. Three thousand people came. Sylvia answered about 100 questions. Most people wanted to know why something happened, if their loved ones were around, what was their future, were they going to get married, have children, and about their health. There were some young people who lost spouses and children. A sick child wanting to know if they'd get better.

She sounded more like a psychologist than a psychic. She said don't worry why things happen, they just happen. Yes, their loved ones were around and loved them, their future was going to be what they make it, yes they were healthy, etc. I somehow didn't really get the feeling she answered the questions with real answers. It was fun though.
