No Comfort Zone Challenge: Week 1

Image of EmRossi

 

For the longest while, I had this thing about my voice. It’s a funny thing, because I’ve worked a few customer service positions and it required me being on the phone. Anywho, I decided months ago that I would try something to help me appreciate my voice and started singing karaoke.

 

Over the weekend, I challenged myself to sing a few songs from artists that I really admire. Are there any fears you would like to challenge with me for the next 30 days? If so, let’s help each other out.

 

Below are links to some songs I recorded…tell me what you think…be kind. LOL

Breaking Bad Habits: Mindful Addiction Recovery

Al Jazeera English

Addiction is defined as a harmful relationship with a substance or behaviour.

It is commonly associated with smoking, alcohol and drugs. But as a condition it’s difficult to understand.

Do we treat it as a neurological disorder? Or is it a personality trait? And how can we best overcome it, when current treatments for addiction have a relapse rate of about 70 percent?

Dr Farrah Jarral travels to the University of Massachusetts to meet a psychiatrist who is using the power of the mind to overcome addiction.

What Is Life?

The adventure of life is to learn.

The purpose of life is to grow.

The nature of life is to change.

The challenge of life is to overcome.

The essence of life is to care.

The opportunity of life is to serve.

The secret of life is to dare.

The spice of life is to befriend.

The beauty of life is to give.
