Podcast Mod 9: Bullying
Joe Dwyer’s unique approach is to not only apply his own experience of being bullied but most notably how his two dogs overcame being terribly mistreated and now are ambassadors to help others.
I invite you to take a journey with me through some of my stress and how Daniel and Shelby have helped by being my loyal companions and teaching me coping skills.
Conflicts exist in every group of people, and the bigger the group the more likely it will surface. Where many changes are present, the conflicts can become even more prevalent. The conflicts themselves are less of an issue than how they are resolved. Join us as we journey through conflict resolution, including labor/management relations.
As numbers continue to rise of people affected by anxiety/depression, especially students of all ages, more remedies and insights are needed. In this audio series, we present some comfort and ideas to consider if you are struggling with anxiety /depression, or if you are a caregiver to someone. Join Daniel and me and feel better.
We all seek more respect and no matter how much we get, it seems like we always feel we deserve more. Sorry to say, we are usually wrong, or if we are right, we still might not get it! In order to get more respect, we first need to start with that nice looking person in the mirror. Are we doing right be ourselves? Once we answer this question, our canine friends will come through as they always do, providing us valuable insight into the subject of respect.
Living in the moment is one of those things that sounds very easy but it is everything but. Like eating right and keeping physically fit, although it sounds easy, it isn’t. We need to live in the moment more consistently to live a passionate and enjoyable life. Dogs are top examples of living in the moment so we need to follow their lead. So, slip on a leash and let a dog walk us through the way to live each moment with purpose.
Unless you plan on living totally alone every day of your life, you will run into some conflict and the need to not only resolve it but make it work in a positive way. All too often, we run from conflict with the hope it will just go away. Truth is when we avoid conflict, it usually gets worse! Once again my canine friends can give us some insight into resolving conflict more effectively and living with more peace.
I have come to believe that compassion is what makes the world go around and if it stops, so will the world. Compassion is the most important quality one can have and the attribute we should spend the most time improving. My Pit Bull Shelby has acted as a therapy dog for many years and has spread more compassion than most humans do in a lifetime! She is a very special individual but how she acts in a compassionate way is something we can all learn from.
Could it be that whether you think we are making progress in celebrating differences or not, that you are correct? I say this in exactly the case as it is all in our own perception and actions. Granted there are plenty of things in our world to look at and say either we are making strides or not, but each of us has the power to make a huge difference is this important area of life.
Accountability is not a bad word, but for many reasons it can make people squirm when they hear it. Instead, it should be a lifestyle to embrace. When we live a life filled with consistent accountability, more peace and joy enters our presence and it also has positive effects on others. Over the years I have learned quite a bit from positive experiences with accountability, but I have learned even more from the challenging experiences. Most of all, I have learned the most from watching my dogs!
