How Not to be Angry, AKA How to Dwell in Joy!

"Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires. So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls." -James 1:19-21 NLT

Joy and Anger Junk (PART 2)by MissDaniChan

I've always had a short temper. It was really bad at times when I was younger. Cross me, and I would erupt into destructive forces like you may have never seen before.

TEDx does Hoarding by Yours Truly

Forgive me. You've been so kind to follow and read my posts in the past.

I've been busy. Not too busy for my readers; I deeply appreciate you. Just busy.

But back in the Fall, I was super busy speaking at conferences in Washington State and California, primarily on the effects to the child who grows up in hoarding. It was tough to speak on such a personal topic. I know you understand.

I speak all the time. To social workers; to municipal employees and agencies; to mental health providers; to the community-at-large; to magazine, news channel and newspaper reporters.

But this Fall, I took on a new stage, literally, at TedxSpokane--'Knowing It Again.'

I did it for you.

For your friends who don't get it.

For your HPs who don't know they need help or understanding.

For our children whose generation can do better.

Please feel free to share this. As far as I can tell, this is the first TedTalk done specifically on hoarding. This message needs to get out.

Not just my story.

Your story.


Change begins with stories told and shared. Let's start a movement!

Yours, Ceci
