I love this & heartfully agree that my subjective shift away from mental illness and dysfunction, delving through awareness and choice into the mysteries of human resilience and optimism I have learned how to locate hope through the lens of gratitude … http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/12/091208155309.htm#.Um-80n5hQpY.facebook

Emotions & workplaces; allowing thoughts and feelings to sap important cognitive resources that could be put to better use. Someone has made a good point against that … Clearly, those techniques don’t work—in fact, ample research shows that attempting to minimize or ignore thoughts and emotions serves only to amplify them. I read something useful that talks about “do emotions use you or you use emotions? the parallel processing of the subjective simultaneously assists the objective depending how well our alternators are working at the time – shifting our response according to the interval in mental dissonance. What do you think?
I love the image – it really shows me how being together can mine the wisdom in wellbeing.
It’s interesting this “The difference lies in the fact that peer counselling is provided by non-professional persons who have a disability.” because, in my opinion I think that non-professional people who have been told that all because they have an illness, they have a mental illness. I like to adopt being a non-Professional, however professionally inclined to share her experience of a life well lived in the face of adversity. My perception of how I am is more about what shift I can make to enable myself to encounter transformation. I am, in my own right my own advocate, I don’t believe I can change the system because I think the system is a silo of individuals that have coutured their own culture & permeated attitudes by actualizing stigma that results in people being marginalized. If work is a job, it must be done. But what if work isn’t work it’s actually an occupational pastime? But that’s my dreamtime. Brave people will seek their purpose in life through working together beyond the dependency stated above. Bravo … keep up the positive attitude to shift into the gear we need for transitioning into new pathways of life. http://onestopmentalhealthshop.com/?p=228
And then I read this ….
University of Sydney cross-disciplinary researchers are harnessing the benefits offered by advances in online technology to develop innovative programs improving mental health in young people.
Associate Professor Rafael Calvo, director of the Software Engineering Group at the School of Electrical and Information Engineering and Professor Ian Hickie, Director of the Brain and Mind Research Institute, are collaborating with the Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre (Young and Well CRC) to develop new online interventions to support young people’s mental health. …. http://anzmh.blogspot.com.au/2013/04/harnessing-technology-to-improve-mental.html
and this has been my experience,
17 years (pre 2013) ago I started experimenting with social media to find others who had the time to make the effort to interface & learn about themselves in different ways. I learnt things I could never have learnt any other way. Without going into intellectualized language the simplicity was. I needed to explore and examine facets of me to fulfil the rewards of living my life ‘worthwhile’. The strengths I have emassed have excelled learning’s I have had, otherwise – and contributed so far.
I have noticed, shaped & organised my positive attributes of resilience, empathy, curiosity, optimism & gratitude in a way that synchronizes the preferred life for me.
Anyone who has the courage to live their life on purpose moves unbarred in the universe in accord with one another. Thank you Michelle Barton for your invite to Link in.
And you think you know how it is that you can realize it’s me. Who am I if only an experience. My introduction into the thought pathway of choice.
Just recently involved in an experience where competing opportunities have emassed further potential for noticing different variables that could potentially compromise the over-arching or “global” work that I do.
I had an opportunity to examine a role that integrated my vision & passion whilst realizing simultaneously the competing complexities, at the time when offered an interview. Is it about me – or is it about the integration of energies shifting in the sands of time. Reflection.
Convergence. A distributed replacement for the ambiguity that was mine to co-create. The universe rung out alarm bells as I pushed open the the mystic doors & walked into the space having organized my thoughts and decided such choices in a way that butted up to bookend my decisional capacities at the time. I could have added energy and generated shifted emotions as transference that could have morphed. The butterfly affect. I asked myself, the trade-offs? the pay-offs? – a temporary due of competing values.
Simple reflections in the walk of life are an invitation. However – mindful moments of deconstruction, the complex reflections occur. The anatomy of destiny is revealed in ways I couldn’t forsee. Well, another week. I visited Holdfast bay, the geography of the south and had the pleasure of learning with others in an environment where the mutual exchange of energy distinguished the capacity of which I now have in my sHow bag of experience.
‘I learn what I believe as I hear myself speak‘.
