Virtual Coins: A Virtual Goldmine.

Back in 2009 when the first virtual coin, Bitcoin, came on the scene, very few people knew what to make of this new currency. Some said it was the wave of the future, while others said it would never catch on. The person who allegedly created the Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto said (shortly after its release), “It might make sense just to get some in case it catches on.

The Power of Negative Visualization: Minimize Fear and Anticipatory Anxiety

In the back of my mouth are two lonely wisdom teeth patiently awaiting their long overdue eviction notice. They need to be pulled. Two of my four wisdom teeth were extracted three years ago and a week later I was supposed to make an appointment for the remaining pair to be pulled. Instead, because my first experience in the torture chamber, ahem , back room of the dental office, I avoided it. For the last three years, I’ve successfully dodged a myriad of follow-up phone calls from the dentist and well-meaning reminders from my wife. I won’t go into the details but the procedure didn’t go smoothly. It was painful and a little terrifying. I am now one of the 10-15% of people that are scared enough of the dentist that they avoid ever going. (Different from the 75% of people that experience anxiety but still go). But I know I’ll eventually have to overcome the fear and make the appointment. This got me thinking about fear, anxiety, and emotional suffering caused by the anticipation of

5 Things Every Woman Should Say To Themselves

Every single one of us has a story we tell ourselves, a tale about who we are, what we are, and why we do the things we do. Some of us speak our own truths. We boldly step beyond the box we were molded in and dismiss any and everything that does not resonate with our souls. We’re the zany ones, the quirky, somewhat strange, but loveable creatures that make the world an interesting place to live in. Others tell their tales through everyone else’s eyes. They judge their thoughts and feelings based off of the “opinion lense” other people view them through.
