Overcoming Mental Roadblocks

By Judith Albright For a time life can go along with ease … then it doesn’t. One day you realize something is different. Your daily life feels emptier. You lack incentive in the morning and are less eager to begin your day. Life has lost meaning and work is without joy. The sense of accomplishment and satisfaction which has sustained you is gone.

When Will I Be Good Enough?

by Judith Albright There is no need to carry the burden of other people’s negative opinions Have you spent most of your life feeling unworthy or somehow inferior?
