Many of us hold on to people, objects and thoughts that work against our goals. What is it about the past, or the need to make decisions, that holds us hostage?
Sometimes the clutter we keep stops us from moving forward with an important decision or lifestyle change. The simple act of accounting for the excess matter can make us all a little more self-aware, and that awareness will help us move on with our lives. There is something incredibly liberating about letting things go, no matter the size or its history in our lives.
This week at Life Clubs instead of exploring the nooks and crannies of our minds, we will examine the big piles of clutter occupying the centre of our thoughts, with an end goal of creating space in our lives.

Whether we are talking about lovers, friends, family or work relationships, there are certain elements that are necessary to keep things pleasant.
1 spoonful of understanding
1 spoonful of commitment
1 spoonful of love
1 spoonful of friendship
1 spoonful of boundaries
Decorate with compassion and an airy sense of humour.

You are invited to join Life Clubs Canada this week as we explore the personal and social aspects of being in a variety of relationships. It's time to examine our emotional environments, and to figure out why we sometimes treat strangers with greater courtesy than our loved ones.

What are you really good at? What are you really bad at?
Chances are the answers to those questions will vary depending on whether I ask you or if I ask someone who knows you well. The old adage that we are all our own worst critic is true, though we seldom analyze the criticism that stops us dead in our tracks. Last week we learned about friendships. Now we’re ready to develop the confidence required to make desired changes.
Whether the skill you’re working on is tying a shoelace, cooking a six-course meal, or you’re a professional athlete crusading for a World Cup title, you have to invest time and energy to be successful. Confidence is often overlooked as belonging to a skill set, which keeps a lot of us in the dark.
You are invited to join Life Clubs Canada this week as we explore confidence not as a quality you were either born with or without, but as a learnable skill, and as we dare each other to step out of the safety of being under-confident. It’s time to focus all those negative appraisals into a positive outcome, translating self-perceived weaknesses into lightbulb moments.
