What A Confident Woman Knows?

Posted on February 29, 2016 at 6:23 PM Comments comments (100)


Women has always been labeled and defined by so many over the years.  What’s amazing is how women are always put into a box as to what they can and can’t do.  We are now living in a time when more women are running their households as single parents, earning a living on their own, and creating and running successful businesses.  These women are smart, confident, resilient, and savvy.  They have allowed themselves to step outside of the box that society has placed them in for so long.  They are mothers, teachers, wives, politicians, business and spiritual leaders that have learned how to keep a balance between life and work.  They are confident women. 
A confident woman knows that life is about learning and growing and accepts the good and bad experiences that come with life knowing that she learns from them both. She knows that learning will help her grow into the woman that god has destined her to be.  She knows and understands that she is not perfect in the eyes of others and will make mistakes as she continue on her journey to self-discovery, growth, wellness, and success.  She’s comfortable in her own skin and knows that beauty comes from within.  She is not defined by others, her position, her skin color, hair, body size, a job title, her status, her money, her make-up, clothes, or material possessions.  She knows her self-worth, who she is, and where she’s going.  She is capable of making sound decisions and charting her own course in life.  She has a positive outlook on life and is not affected by how people perceive her.  She refuses to let the judgment of others stop her from being who she is and takes pride in self.  She will not allow herself to be put in a box in a cold and cookie-cutter world.  She has goals, dreams, and aspirations and sets out to accomplish them by executing a plan. 
A confident woman knows that in order to accomplish anything in this world you have to be willing to embrace change, tune out the negativity, accept your failures, and never give up on what you believe in.  Her circle is full of positive people that she can learn from.  If she is knocked down by the woes and blows of life, she is confident enough to pick herself back up and keep moving.  She exemplifies success by writing her own success story and embracing her journey by helping others achieve their goals along the way.   
Confident women understand that some may confuse their confidence with arrogance but that does not deter them from their life plans.  They also know and understand that no matter how low they may feel, they must continue to hold their heads up high as they reach for the stars. 
A confident woman sees beyond the immediate.  In every situation in life whether good or bad, it is important to be able to see beyond the immediate and know that things will eventually work out.  It’s called taking a proactive role to getting things done.  We may not always get what we want in life, but you will never know what you can accomplish if you don’t try.  “Action” is the key word to getting things done.  For every problem, there is a solution. 
A confident woman knows the importance of seeing beyond the here and now.  She does not allow challenges to set her back in life.  She continues on her journey by staying focused on what she’s trying to accomplish.  She makes the right connections to the right people, at the right time by networking, and keeping herself in the loop of what’s happening around her at all times.  She doesn’t allow herself to get too comfortable in a situation whereas she is not willing to embrace change.  She’s very quick on her feet and knows when and how to make the necessary adjustments in life to keep her on a path to success.  She is powerful and fearless and understands that knowledge is power so she continues to educate herself on what matters.  She’s smart, business savvy, and focused.  She takes care of her health by exercising, eating healthy, drinking plenty of water and keeping a clear mind. 
Her thoughts and actions are well thought out and aligned to what she’s trying to accomplish in life.  She’s a doer, a thinker, and a well accomplished woman.  She’s always prepared for the unexpected and knows how to shift gears when necessary.  She has no fear of failure.  She’s secure and confident enough to walk into a boardroom, a business meeting, a principal’s office or a bank and convey exactly what she wants without the fear of being rejected or ignored.  She don’t sit around and watch things happen, she goes out and make them happen.  Confident women keeps a balance in their life and knows how to keep themselves organized and on task. They place themselves around like-minded individuals that can continue to help them grow as they set out to become innovators and creators of new ideas.  Confident women are the future leaders and teachers of tomorrow who will not let no one or nothing stop them from being all that they can be.

Posted on February 13, 2016 at 7:12 PM Comments comments (327)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)


Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is characterized as having strong anxious and distressing reactions to a past traumatic event. The memories, flashbacks, nightmares, and night terrors of the event can be so vivid that they provoke seemingly uncontrollable anxious reactions and symptoms. Many people who struggle with PTSD feel helpless to eliminate the negative memories, flashbacks, nightmares, and night terrors and the strong reactions and symptoms that accompany them.
Some people say that having PTSD is similar to having panic attacks 24/7 and feeling there is nothing you can do to stop them.
PTSD symptoms:
  • reoccurring memories, flashbacks, and nightmares that seem unstoppable
  • on going anxiety and worry
  • underlying fear and trepidation
  • persistently feeling unsafe and at risk
  • avoiding situations that remind you of the event
  • avoiding situations that are associated with reminders and the event itself
  • overly vigilant in uncertain situations
  • avoiding others
  • a persistent internal struggle
  • and many of anxiety's physiological, psychological, and emotional symptoms

Plus many more symptoms.

Anxiety

Posted on February 13, 2016 at 6:59 PM Comments comments (300)

Some behavioral signs and systems of anxiety include:
  • Repetitive or compulsive behaviors
  • Changes in personality
  • Relationship problems
  • Issues at the workplace
  • Wanting to remain isolated
  • Increased fear of situations or doing things.

There are over 100 anxiety symptoms and signs for anxiety, anxiety attacks (panic attacks), and other anxiety disorders including symptoms:
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Dizziness
  • Chest pain
  • Headaches
  • Neck tension
  • Stomach upset, nervous stomach
  • Pulsing in the ear
  • Burning skin
  • Fear of impending doom
  • Nausea
  • Shortness of breath
  • Electric shock feeling
  • Shooting pains in the face
  • Heart palpitations
  • Weakness in legs
  • Feeling like you are going crazy
  • Inability to rest
  • Sleep problems



Anxiety is defined as:
  • A state of uneasiness, apprehension; as about future uncertainties.
  • A state of apprehension, uncertainty, and fear resulting from anticipation of a realistic or fantasized threatening event or situation, often impairing physical and psychological functioning.

In other words, anxiety occurs when we behave (think and act) in an apprehensive manner, such as when worrying about an event or situation.
With this in mind, anxiety is not a force or 'thing' in itself. It's a state of uneasiness that results when we worry. More about this in a moment.
Because imagining the future in an apprehensive manner is a behavior, it's not caused by a biological, chemical, or genetic problem with the brain. Anxiety results from a certain style of behavior.

Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time. This is normal. This is why anxiety is not a medical, biological, chemical, or genetic problem.
Anxiety turns into a 'disorder' - disruption to normal functioning - when anxiety and its sensations and symptoms interfere with a normal lifestyle.
It's important to keep in mind that anxiety disorder should NOT be equated with a medical condition or serious mental illness (when there is a medical, biological, chemical, or genetic cause). Unfortunately, the term mental illness is used to refer to any problem caused by behaving in an abnormal way (what is considered to be outside of the 'norm'). All of us have behaviors that fall outside of the norm, which is why all of us could be categorized as having some type of mental illness.
While you may have or have been diagnosed as having anxiety disorder, this means you have overly anxious behaviors (tendencies). It doesn't mean you are somehow mentally deficient or have something medically, biologically, chemically, or genetically wrong.

Behaving in an overly apprehensive manner creates the physiological, psychological, and emotional state of anxiety. Anxiety activates the stress response, which stresses the body. A body that becomes overly stressed can exhibit symptoms of stress.
So anxiety symptoms are actually symptoms of stress. They are called anxiety symptoms because behaving apprehensively is the main source of the stress that overly stresses the body, which then, causes the body to exhibit symptoms.
Because each body is somewhat chemically unique, the type, number, intensity, duration, and frequency of anxiety symptoms will vary from person to person. For example, one person might have just one mild or a few anxiety symptoms, whereas another person might have all anxiety symptoms and to great severity. All combinations and variations are common.
