Effect on Emotions

  • When I was in my twenties, my worst problems were my emotions. If I would date somebody and break up with them, I would suffer for at least six months. If I loved the person, I would suffer for a year or two years.
  • When I started working with my higher self, it put me in that place of asking, why am I doing this to myself; why am I not being mindful about myself. Let go of these emotions.
  • My main focus when I was in my twenties was to really let go of my emotions. Every day at the end of the day I would do a nightly review. Why was I emotional? Who made me emotional? Now I have my clients do nightly reviews.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • I do a lot of exercise. I've done the happy yoga which is a physical yoga. They really talk a lot about breathing.
  • I do pilates and my pilates teacher talks a lot about breathing.
  • I'm going to a physical therapist now for some of my arthritis and she gives me all kinds of breathing exercises.
  • Breathing is very much a part of my exercise routine.

Bullying Story

  • I was an art director in the 1960's and there were very few art directors at that time who were women.
  • Companies told me at the time that they never hire women. In my mid twenties I finally managed to get an art director's job.
  • I had to work with an account exec who was an older man in his late fifties. He said he would not work with a woman. The head of the agency told him he had to work with me.
  • The first two or three weeks he was terrible to me. He ordered me around and made me do things I didn't want to do.
  • After that I told him, you're not my boss, you're my co-worker and you don't tell me what to do in this job.
  • Then I started producing work and he liked my work. From then on we were very good friends. It was rough.
