Learning To Let Go And Let GOD @dawgelene

Most of us have heard people use the phrase “let go and let God.” This is fine and wonderful if you can just do it. More importantly, it works even better if we can acknowledge that we are holding on to something or someone that keeps that distance between God and us. Why do we oftentimes allow that distance when God is clearly trying to close the gap? There are times when we clearly see…

What will YOU choose?

Dawgelene Sangster, MA, CPC-   Life is about choices. We choose to get up; we choose to be in a relationship; we choose to reach out to others; we choose to open up and allow others to reach us; we choose to live a life of purpose. The bottom line is that we have the ability to CHOOSE, regardless of our circumstances, to do what is right, according to what works us; our values, etc.

See The Potential

Dawgelene Sangster, MA, CPC- Everyone has the potential to be better. Why not encourage others and be encouraged to live a better life yourself? The alcoholic has the potential to stay sober, the drug addict has the potential to stay clean, the ______________ has the potential to (insert positive word). Is it really that difficult to see your potential, or the…

USE YOUR HANDS -cause You got the best hand!

Dawgelene Sangster, MA, CPC- When people say “You got the best hand; if I had yours, I would cut mine off,” I say “What!” Please just be yourself and create your OWN ideas, your own groove, and flow into YOUR OWN purpose. Be who YOU were destined to be and shine for you, not desiring to be like someone else, or have what they have. You never know what they sacrificed to get it, so play the hand you were dealt and show us what YOU are working with!…

Empowerment Tip- 12/8/2010

Dawj Sangster says...

Without a vision for your life’s purpose and direction, how will you know where you are going or what you need to do to get there? You have to see where you need to be, before devising any plan. It’s just like thinking about how you are going to strut in that…

Foolish Worth?

Keep your head up, embrace your worth, and Stay…

De-Cluttering Your Mind

Dawgelene Sangster, M.A. CPC- What do you listen to when you are trying to free your mind of clutter? Do you listen to music, nature sounds or the stillness? Our minds need to be free on a daily basis to enhance our thinking. We are constantly thinking about life, careers, people and situations, etc, that our minds really don't have enough time to just rest. Just as a fish needs to be free to swim, so should our minds be free to think with clarity. It needs…

Take 5 For You: Daily Rejuvenation Techniques

Dawgelene Sangster, M.A., C.P.C- Having peace of mind is so important in our daily walk of life. The world around us is so fast paced and constantly moving in various directions, that we tend to not slow down or take a break. We have become so mentally conditioned to keep moving at a fast pace, even though our bodies tell us to stop. As humans, we need to gather a sense of wholeness and allow our bodies and minds to take a much needed…

Encouraging Our Sisters

Be thankful for every woman that made your life better, and the ones that may have given you challenges. You can reflect on all of those things and be a pioneer for the next generation of women who desperately need you to help them go in a positive direction. Of course, this does not mean that you should go out and be terror on two feet for someone because you want to challenge her, but you can do the following to breathe life into other women:

1. Encourage them in…

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”

Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
