TEDx Recommendations

Though the initials T, E, & D stand for technology, entertainment, and design, the top TEDx talks speak about the human condition: relationships with yourself and others: emotional, physical, mental and spiritual health: our life here on planet earth. I’ve included a few I think have “ideas worth spreading.” Ideas I share now with you and my family and some I will try to incorporate into my life. One contains some very blunt language, but the topic is global and needs to see the sunlight to be addressed. Check back occasionally to see if I post new ones. Make a list of your own and share them with your family and friends. Sometimes your kids will listen to others’ motherly advice. TEDxABQ link by Athena Chris

Now that I can talk I should be able to make this happen. Found it late in the year, but at least it isn't a rash decision! DO NOT LET REJECTION IN 1." Thank you for sharing that." 2."I'm so sorry. I didn't hear that, could you repeat that? " 3."Oh, are you trying to hurt my feelings?" 4." That's not going to work. I'm not going to let that in." 5. "Do you know that the most critical people have the most criticism reserved for themselves? You are showing me and others how dissatisfied you are with yourself when you behave like this."
