What You’d Never Say to Your BFF ... A Conversation with Julie Leonard
Best Selling author Julie Leonard shares her thoughts, her compassion and rationale for creating Intentional Happiness in life. While she is a Happiness Evangelist, you might be expecting someone to come cheering and roaring in glee. Julie is this calm, rock solid individual that has found her way to happiness, secure in her priorities and her life purpose. Her book is an extension of our conversation, a guide and a motivation to pause, reflect and reprioritize what is really important and what makes us happy!
She will inspire you to recognize your thoughts and automatic thinking. She offers a powerful prompt and secret to cultivating more self-kindness. It includes the simple things, like being aware of matters / circumstances / events that you cannot control and having positive mindset over the things you can control. Hint: it’s your thinking, your health, your positive self-talk and self-compassion.
It’s ok to not be ok. How would you respond to your BFF – Best Friend Forever if she confided in you that she was overwhelmed, feeling blue or tired? Would you offer some compassion? Would you ask, what can I do to help? …then the question Julie asks is, how can we start to offer the same compassion toward our self? You’d never speak to your BFF the way you allow those negative thoughts and self-talk preach to your own mind and heart.
Join our conversation. Consider what is truly important.
What is on the top of your priority list… really? (Likely, it is not just yours and everyone else’s to-do list ...instead it is what is really truly important to you… what makes you happy!)
