Tonic Or Toxic

Tonic? or Toxic?

Dawna Markova wrote I Will Not Die And Unlived Life – Reclaiming Purpose and Passion.” She dedicates this book to “…Those who live a life they can love.”

Markova asks us to examine the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves. “Some are toxic and keep our problems festering. Others are tonic and bring us beyond the limitations of our previous history.”

This “tonic” or “toxic” can go further than our inner dialogue and can be applied to our choices in friends, work, commitments, family environment. It can be applied to ideas, thoughts, words and tone of voice with ourselves and with others. It’s a simple “yes” or “no” to our own wellbeing – and can be the conduit or the obstacle to living a life we can love.

“Beyond the limitations of our previous history.” Nice intention.

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.” - M. Scott Peck
