The following are daily journal entries of mine that document my very painful and personal experience of having to end the life of my 15 year old cat, "Cheese", who was more like a child and faithful friend to me. Writing about this experience was somewhat insightful and therapeutic for me, so I thought reading about my raw experience might possibly be cathartic for others...
This is a clip from my Stress Mastery program talking about the importance of knowing what your personal relationship with stress is before you will ever be able to change how you experience stress.

It's not what we do every once in a while that defines our lives; it’s what we do consistently. Simply put, the quality of your life is a reflection of your daily rituals. We all have rituals—some empowering, others disempowering, some conscious, but most are unconscious. For better or worse, those things we do on a regular basis determine the quality of our lives.
For that reason, it's critical that we make a proactive effort to act with intention each day, in our careers, our personal lives, and our relationships. The trust, intimacy, and passion in your relationship are determined by the investment you and your partner are willing to make in it on a regular basis.

There are a few truths about Self Help that I think are very important for people to know and understand before setting out on the journey or starting the process of personal growth.
The first truth is that truly embracing Self Help material involves the acknowledgment and willingness to come to terms with and admit to yourself that there are areas of your life that you should or need to improve. This alone is more than most people can do.
The second truth is that Self Help absolutely requires the acceptance of personal responsibility. You can accumulate all the information and knowledge there is about personal growth and development, but if you don’t take responsibility for applying what you know to your life, you will not make any progress at all.
And the third truth about Self Help is that the true goal of Self Help is not selfish, it is actually just the opposite. The true goal of being the best version of yourself and empowering yourself to be optimally effective is so that you can then go out and help make a positive impact in the world by contributing to the lives of others, strengthening your relationships, and helping those around you.
Before you read one book on self-help, watch one video on self-improvement, or go to one seminar about personal development...watch this video and ask yourself if you truly have the one and only prerequisite that is necessary to actually get results in your life.
