We had some wonderful questions from readers last month, and we shared on a lot of new topics on www.thrivingnow.com. We gathered them together here to help you discover which ones can help you transform an area of your life. Give this list a once-over and see which ones feel attractive to you… that feel most like a YES! (And it’s okay to leave the rest. Just like at an all-you-can-eat buffet, choose what feels delicious to you NOW.)
New articles are also announced on our Facebook page, too. Please “Like” our page and feel free to comment on the articles or whatever is coming up for you. We appreciate your feedback and how so many of you pass along our articles and ideas to friends, family, and co-workers. Thank you!

How can I use Tapping (EFT) to give me better focus? -Ann What we recommend is that you start the tapping by including how you feel right now… scattered, stressed, and chaotically trying to multitask 100 things at once… while giving your energy an intentional direction: relaxed, open, focused.

I’ve Done Everything I Can

I Must Take Care of Them… ALL of Them!

Hope In a Box
When we feel stuck, we sometimes take the only action that feels possible… purchasing new products that promise to help us reach our goal, whatever it is.

Subconscious Boundary Testing in Aging Parents
If you look at behavioral psychology studies, you find that much of what we consider “manipulation” and “testing of boundaries” is subconscious.
