Time, Stress and Denial

Time for some valuable life lessons from Madelyn Griffith-Haynie on time, stress and denial. You do need to read the entire post, carefully because Madelyn covers a number of key elements to our behaviour as adults. We all understand the term conditioning. Where we experience an event repeatedly when we are young and through our lifetimes respond to similar experiences with pleasure, fear, terror, anger etc. Madelyn uses the example of a crying baby and a parents reaction to that. Also we all have our own internal clock which does not always synchronise with those who are waiting for us.. and finally change does not always have to hold terror.. it can be great especially when we focus on our postitive attributes instead of the negative.. keep an open mind and head over and be energised.

and what’s an impending disaster.

The body doesn’t know the difference
between nerves and excitement
— between panic and doubt . . .”

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.

  1. Excellent article. I often use similar strategies to those suggested by Madelyn when I need to write and am faced with a blank piece of paper. It is great she is sharing such useful strategies…. especially for free!!! Writers take note!
