How Change Inspires Relationships!
Patti's Thoughts: Change is good in the workplace because people don’t get bored and they learn new things. It is easy to go through the motions if you do the same job function everyday. People leaving the team and new people coming onto the team is good. New ideas and new energy comes to the team. New projects and different new challenges keeps everyone thinking and motivated. The same old stuff day after day demotivates staff. Learning new ways and methods helps the team members grow. Now, change can come with upheaval at first. People have to learn how to communicate with each other. There maybe some growing pains. It also puts new perspective on the job. If you don’t like what is changing you have other options to move on yourself. That isn’t a bad thing. It is a way of reflecting is it time for me to make a change as well. It could be a new boss or a new job assignment that you just don’t like. What is this telling you about yourself or the job? Is it time to move on or will I stay and see how it works out for me? Change is part of life however at first it is scary and uncertain. Sometimes it is for the better and sometimes it helps us improve by the experience. It depends on how hard you fight it.
Angela's Thoughts on personal relationship: “Your partner is a mystery”.
Too often we get comfortable or bored with our partner. How do you know you really know them? You know their habits. Do you know them? How can you see your partner as a mystery? Do you have a question that you want to ask your partner - have you already assumed you “know” how they will answer...notice how you tend to put them in a box. Some ideas on how to get to know your partner in different context. Board games that involve moral questions like “scruples” , a new card game or game, dance class, a challenging hike or outdoor adventure, book a trip somewhere for a weekend and don’t tell them where you’re going. Take a train ride instead of the car. Trying different modes of transport and feel what it’s like to share a new experience with your partner.

Angela and Patti discuss "What is being Authentic?"
Patti view: A truly authentic person doesn't put on a mask and become someone they are not or change to fit in. They express their true thoughts, feelings and views without apologizing. Being authentic is having integrity and being true to oneself and others.
Angela view: Sharing without forcing people to agree. Sharing without proving you are right or anyone is wrong. Sharing from your heart. Sharing to get understanding between people. Being in the heat of anger and needing to stand up and fight for what you believe in.
What is being authentic mean to you?
Accepting oneself for the good qualities you have. Everyone is unique and has some type of talent and gift. Comparing yourself to someone else just causes pain and envy. To stop those thoughts: Write down all your good qualities. Anytime you start to feel self-doubt, comparison or negative feelings reflect on those words you wrote and read them.
Self Reflection questions:
*Who were you at the beginning of 2018?
*How are you different now?
*What have you achieved?
*What are you happy about?

Angela and Patti discuss being able to be social without being stuck to the phone.
People are losing face to face contact. There is home schooling, working from home, solo-entrepreneurs, single parenting and much more. Distance over internet makes people bold, they feel comfort behind electronics. Interacting face to face, shy people feel more uncomfortable and their not forced to socialize.
How do you get social away from the phone?
Go and get face to face with others, and put the phone away.
Go to the same place and same time every week and possibly you will see the same people every week and make a connection.
Start going to meetups groups.
Stretch out of your comfort zone.
People cut themselves off from social opportunities before they even get there.
Strategy - Pick a place and go once a week. Get past the What IF of past fear of rejection. Sometimes you may never know who you may meet by taking a chance. Take the risk and leave the what-ifs behind. The most fun times, has been talking to strangers about the weirdest things!
Connecting to your heart and writing exercise.
