November Luncheon

Thursday, November 9, 2023

11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Join us for the WIL November Luncheon!

Warehouse on State

 736 SW Washington St, Peoria, IL 61602.

Speaker: Dr. Bridgette Heard

Dr. Bridgette Heard will delve into the transformative power of eliminating negative self-talk to fully embrace the essence of gratefulness. At its core, this topic explores the profound idea that negative self-talk and genuine gratefulness cannot coexist in the same mind simultaneously. Dr. Heard will unravel the intricacies of this concept by addressing three key tenets. 

First, Dr. Heard will examine the detrimental impact of negative self-talk on our mental well-being and self-esteem. By understanding how this inner dialogue erodes our self-worth and inhibits personal growth, you can appreciate the urgency of replacing it with a more positive narrative. 

Second, she will explore the essence of gratefulness and its role in fostering a mindset of abundance, resilience, and joy. The talk will shed light on how practicing gratitude can reshape your perspective, fostering a deeper appreciation for life's simple blessings.

Last, she will unveil practical strategies to banish negative self-talk and cultivate gratitude in your daily life. These strategies will help you silence that inner critic and embrace a mindset of thankfulness. 

Through this speech, Dr. Heard aims to empower you to embark on a journey towards self-compassion and a newfound appreciation for the beauty that surrounds you, ultimately leading to a more fulfilled and positive existence.
