Listening is code for “being present.” Are you a good listener? Do you multitask while in a conversation with someone? Not that multitasking is a bad thing, it’s just that you’re not exactly giving the other person your full attention if you’re……say, half there. You know what I mean? Personally, I’m no good at multitasking and find it stressful to try and do more than one thing at a time. All that running around creates internal craziness! Slow down, breath and listen to what your body is telling you. Practice being still. What does your mind tell you in silence? What messages are you receiving while you’re quiet? Sometimes being busy will create a sort of brain fog, and we become less aware of our surroundings or our priorities. Appreciate the people who are there for you and love you no matter what. Than show them. Being a good listener is a great way to show your appreciation for there friendship. A healthy relationship will reciprocate with gratitude!

Always put your health first no matter what that is. Health priorities are different for everybody. We all have different needs or issues regarding our health. Remember putting your health first is smart, not selfish 🙂

Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.


About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.

    Yes. We all need to remember this. No one else can keep you healthy but you and only you know what that entails.
