Balance College Stress – Natural Energy Booster #2 – Listen to Your Body

Felicia Harlow - Balance College Stress - Natural Energy Booster #2

You've heard it before... “You’re not listening to me!” or “You need to listen better!” Was it a professor who says you're not getting it? A parent schooling you about the money you’ve wasted? Your roommate who's fed up with you ignoring them? Or your boyfriend trying to get you to agree with his perspective? What if  the person you're not listening to is yourself. I’m not talking about being crazy, I’m referring to the art of listening to your “inner voice.” It's the voice that says “don’t … [Read more...]

Growing Toward Balance and Happiness Within

Felicia Harlow - Growth In Motion

Do you feel good about yourself inside of your closest relationships? Do you feel like you are an asset in your relationships or a hindrance?

My 80 Year ‘Young’ Gift

Felicia Harlow - My 80 Year Young Gift

On March 12, 2011, I met an 80 year old woman who didn’t look a day over 50! Clearly, she was a woman living a Growth in Motion!!™ lifestyle She was one of the participants at the Women’s Leadership Conference at Clemson University and she contributed lots of wisdom. After delivering the 1st part of my speech, she approached me and thanked me for the wisdom I shared about authenticity. And after the 2nd part of my speech, she re-approached my product table and purchased one of my audio … [Read more...]

Avoiding daytime fatigue

Felicia Harlow - Avoiding daytime fatigue

Your day starts on the “right” side of the bed and you go to classes feeling energized and ready to take on anything. You are alert, prepared, and focused and all seems to be flowing smoothly. As the day progresses, you begin to slow down, start to yawn, creativity takes a “back seat” and you feel like you could go home and crawl into bed. And somewhere around 3-4pm, it hits you like a ton of bricks. You feel depleted and now your thoughts are racing inside your head saying “I don’t feel like … [Read more...]

What is Radical Personal Accountability?

Felicia Harlow - Radical Personal Accountability

To be accountable means to be in charge, responsible, or mature about your life experiences. And in the context of ‘radical personal accountability,’ to be radical is to be an activist, innovative, and uncompromising about your total well-being. When you agree to live a Growth in Motion!! lifestyle, you are consciously agreeing to accept radical personal responsibility. It means you commit to looking inside yourself to understand the deeper meaning of your upsets and tendencies to blame … [Read more...]

Understanding yourself leads to internal peace.

Felicia Harlow - Understanding = Internal Peace

Recently, I was perusing the dictionary because I wanted to see what it said about this word "understanding." Some synonyms shared were: comprehend, absorb, appreciate, identify with, empathize, be familiar with, and value. And in the context of personal growth, to understand is to be willing to empathize with others, be in tune with our emotional selves, and to value individual differences - even when we don't agree with them. Thus the process of understanding involves a high level of mental, … [Read more...]

Be clear about who you are and honest about what you want

Felicia Harlow - Be Honest

Have you ever heard the phrase “honesty is the best policy?” Where did that phrase come from? I mean, there are so many situations that clearly reveal that honesty will either hurt or destroy the relationship! For instance, you were out with friends at a campus event and met this really nice guy who made you feel like no other person ever has. In fact, he made you feel so much better about yourself than your current partner (who you’ve mutually agreed to be in a committed relationship with). So, … [Read more...]

Harvest Time: Getting a Return on Your Investments

Felica Harlow - Harvest Time

To have a harvest is to have a return, a yield, a collection of some sort. It also implies that we give, express or put something "out there" and, by nature, receive something back. This past summer, my family planted seeds in our garden. We gave our effort in the form of time, physical labor and patience with a positive expectation that we would receive something in return - a harvest of various vegetables. Question for Reflection: When you give your time, effort and energy to your partner, … [Read more...]

Take care of yourself for healthier relationships

Felicia Harlow - Mutual Ground Domestic Violence Center

Healthy relationships start with a focus on self-care and well-being. That is the philosophy I shared with Voorhees College students during a visit to their campus. When I asked the question, “What is most important to you in your relationships?” I received answers like trust, communication, love and respect. The idea of practicing self-care as a foundation for healthy relationships appeared to be a new paradigm for them. I can understand, though, because several years ago, it became a new … [Read more...]
