Living in Denial
Using denial as a way to cope with life for short, critical periods of time is healthy & beneficial. Denial becomes a problem when we use it as a substitute,,,
Living In Denial Written by Randi G. Fine Excepted from May 30, 2014 show on A Fine Time for Healing, Living In Denial I’m not sure when it began or how it evolved, but we now live in a society that supports denial and blame rather than acceptance and accountability. James Quinn, a senior director of strategic planning for a major university summed it up well in an article entitled, The Great American Empire – Decline, Decay, Denial, Delusion & Despair which was published on the online magazine The Market Oracle. This is what Mr. Quinn said. “The ... read more
Choosing Counseling Over Coaching 6 y
Choose counseling with a counselor who has lived your pain rather than a coach who has training but cannot relate to your suffering.
Counseling or Coaching Making the Choice Randi G. Fine, Empathic Counselor Everywhere we turn we see someone advertising themselves as a professional “Life Coach.” It certainly seems to be one of the most popular careers of the twenty-first century. Harvard Business Review reports that coaching is a $1 billion dollar a year industry. Life Coaches are trained to partner with their clients in a process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Many coaches are highly effective in helping others achieve those goals. Many are influe ... read more

Emotionally Needy Friends: Where Do You Draw the Line 8 y
What is the difference between a good friend and a needy friend? Where do you draw the line between friendship and therapist? Are you helping or enabling?
Friendship is one of life’s greatest gifts. It is a fulfilling relationship that is shared by two people who care about each other, trust each other, and want only the best for each other. A good friendship is honest, loyal, and truthful; good friends understand and accept each other in ways no one else can.
A healthy friendship feels good to both parties. It is positive, supportive, and comforting whether times are good or bad. Friends see each other through the best of times and the worst of times, and through it all the relationship remains uplifting and fun. Friends make us ... read more

Thanksgiving: A Time to Be Grateful
With the Thanksgiving holiday approaching, I find myself reflecting on all I have to be grateful for and all the ways I've been blessed in my life.
With the Thanksgiving holiday approaching, I find myself reflecting on all I have to be grateful for; I have much to acknowledge.
Each day I open my eyes to the morning light, look out into my lovely bedroom, and am reminded of how far I have come in life. There was a time when I didn’t have two nickels to my name and couldn’t put a roof over the heads of me and my daughter. Now I have my dream home. It’s not a mansion or a palace but it’s spacious, comfortable, beautiful inside and out, and paid for.&nb ... read more
Mother Fights System, Saves At Risk Children 9 y
One brave mother fights the legal system to save the child of her hopelessly addicted daughter, and changes lives of at risk children.
In my March 17, 2011 article, Synchronicity: Life’s Amazing Signs and Meanings I discuss the common expression, “There are no coincidences.” “Coincidental” experiences happen to us more frequently than we may realize, but they often go unnoticed for lack of our attention or our ability to understand the meanings. Whether you see these random, improbable occurrences in your life as signs or merely chance, you have to admit that sometimes they totally blow your mind! At times the message and/or the timing of it are so obvious that the meaning is clear and ... read more
Life After Death: Where Do We Go From Here? 9 y
Scientists have proven that life after death exists.
Transcript Excerpt from the September 22, 2011 episode of my radio show, A Fine Time for Healing
Death is one of the greatest mysteries of life. Haven’t we all thought about what happens to us after we die. Every religion claims to have the answer, but all the answers differ. There are many points of view about the afterlife. Is there a definitive answer? Perhaps we are not meant to know the answer; perhaps we could not fully comprehend the answer. In the show today, I’ll present the facts and theories as I know th ... read more
Moment to Moment 9 y
True happiness comes from living moment to moment. Fulfillment comes from the process of getting there.
We steal if we touch tomorrow. It is God’s. ~ Henry Ward Beecher
Life is a journey, a path we take to self discovery and higher learning. Our dreams, wishes, and goals place us on this path and keep us moving forward. Everyone embraces their journey differently. Some set goals and aggressively beeline towards them. Some take a more passive approach; hope, dream, pray, or simply wait. Either way, most adults, those who have the will to live, continue to look toward a more promising future.
To many of us, what we have today never seems as satisfying as what we think we’ll have ... read more

Relationship Codependency: Everything You Need to Know 9 y
This in depth article discusses codependency from A-Z;how it begins, how to recognize it in yourself and others, the havoc it wreaks on others, and how to rise above it.
Excerpted from the April 21,2011 episode of my radio show, A Fine Time for Healing
Roughly 100 million Americans suffer the effects of codependency today. Relationship codependency is often referred to as the “White Knight” syndrome, because the codependent tends to be a rescuer.
Codependency is a commonly and loosely used term that we often hear, but many of us do not know exactly what it means. Within the context of addiction there are three types of codependency; the enablers, the persecutors, and the victims. Throughout a codependent’s ... read more

Shine Your Spiritual Light to Overpower the Darkness of Others 9 y
When you listen to and trust your inner voice, you'll be more aware of people that have bad intentions. Shining your spiritual inner light will always overpower the darkness of others.
As I discuss many times in my memoir, Fine…ly , I’ve been a creep-magnet far too often in my life. I share a lot of stories in regard to this odd phenomenon in my book, but I couldn’t possibly share them all or my book would have lost its focus. There have been several instances of people wanting to possess me. I don’t know why.
As I look back, I can see a pattern. The “Undesirables” always managed to worm their way into my life at the most vulnerable times in my lif ... read more

Excerpted from 5/31/11 Blog Radio Talk Show A Fine Time for Healing , How to Attract What You Want in Life: Gratitude and Abundance
We cannot possibly realize the immense power that comes from our thoughts. What we focus on grows…that is the law of the universe.

When we focus on what we are lacking, our minds become filled with negativity that breeds thoughts of bitterness, jealousy, and resentment. Living a life of gratitude is what brings ab ... read more
What Is Our Purpose In Life? 9 y
Every one of us has pondered the purpose of life; why we are born, why we struggle, and what happens after we die.
Previous Page, Page 2
Do you remember being a child and asking your teacher or parent why you had to learn something that you’d never use in life?
A child’s world is small; their limited perspective is based on the quality of love they receive, what their senses tell them, and what they have experienced in their young life. Busy playing, experimenting with interpersonal relationships, and discovering how the world works, a child could care less what their life purpose is.
We are granted seventeen years to “try life on for size.” Once we turn eighteen, we are ex ... read more
