Hi I'm Jane Terdik

I have done a lot of changing in the past 5 years of my life. It became obvious to me that I had to make some changes if there was any hope of finding happiness in life. So in a nutshell, everything in my life became new.

We settle into the routine of acceptance and don’t bother to challenge our thinking. We bury our hopes and dreams and often modify…

JANEtalks…I used to believe that certain aspects of my life were beyond my control. I felt that what I could not control I had to accept and learn to deal with. One one hand these thoughts were true enough. But on the other hand, there are some things that while they are beyond our control…

Some of my biggest AHA moments have come from the times when the rug has been ripped out from under me forcing me to a sharp Reality Check. And while these experiences create some great learning curves and I’m so very grateful for them, I’ve learned the importance of not waiting to get that slap…

JANEtalks on the big mistakes…the ones that leave you embarrassed, ashamed and feeling foolish. It isn’t the mistakes it is the consequences of them and the reaction that we perceive others will have and how they will view us. It’s crazy that most of all of this emotion is totally in our OWN heads. Everyone…
