Since I started this blog a few years ago I have written about a lot of issues regarding essential oils, visualization, mind-body connection, positive thinking and other topics. I like focusing on helping people to learn about how they can empower themselves to change things in their lives that aren’t working for them. Over the past several years I have had a ton of people come to me to ask me how I changed my life from where I was to where I am now. For those of you who don’t know my story, you can just Google my name and a bunch of information will come up about me and where I’ve come from. – One of the subjects that has always fascinated me is the information you can get from reading body language. This is an ancient technique that almost everyone can master just by paying attention. How many of you know people who only engage in physical attentiveness when a camera is going off? I have a real pet peeve when it comes to this…you’re at a BBQ and everyone is acting natural until a camera comes out. Then you see all the ‘partners’ come together for a hug or a kiss, arms around each other, smiling brilliantly for the photo opportunity. And as soon as the picture is captured, these people separate like the wind, uploading their precious image onto social media so everyone can see what a perfect life they lead. The problem is that most people know the reality of others lives because we are a society that loves to share with each other the most intimate aspects of our lives. I can’t count how many of my friends opened up to me about their not-so-perfect lives after I got my divorce. I was like honey to a bee…friends who I never imagined were unhappy came at me in droves. How did I have the courage to leave? Why did I take less than I deserved? Was I scared? Could I help them grow a set of balls so they could stand up for themselves? My answer to all of them was this; when you get sick enough of being unhappy, you will change your situation. When you wake up in the morning and you feel like you have a 20 pound weight on your shoulder, you will change. Or maybe you won’t, as most folks don’t. But here’s the thing, you have a choice and you deserve to be happy. I just know that I wake up every day and I am eager for what is going to unfold. I look forward to everything and that is an empowering feeling. – Body language doesn’t lie. Learn to read it and keep your options open. You can do anything you think you can.
Have a great day… Jana
