Cliff’s “Big Move” Blog Post Series

Making changes, especially major ones, can be extremely difficult for highly sensitive people. It’s tempting to stick with what’s comfortable and familiar, even when we may not be completely satisfied. Change is hard, but with desire and determination, it can be done, and I will prove it!

Starting on Monday, November 19th, I’ll publish 23 posts on consecutive Mondays about all the changes I’ve made over the past four years. On Wednesdays and possibly Fridays, I’ll write blog posts on other subjects of interest to highly sensitive people.

Where can you find your best “teachers?”

As highly sensitive people, most of us have a natural curiosity about the world and have a passion for learning. Sometimes we may want to explore something, but have no idea where to start. The good news is that there are “teachers” all around us.

They come disguised as people from all walks of life. Life lessons may arise from everyday situations that happen to us, both good and bad. Your next teacher could be a neighbor, friend, co-worker,  acquaintance, hairdresser, or even a stranger that you strike up a conversation with on the train. (more…)
