So your ex called... What now?
“Maybe in the next post you can cover what to do/not to do when your ex does contact you. I’m in the boat right now and not sure what to make of this unexpected ‘how are you?’ from her.”
This was the comment on the last post 7 Ways to Stop Waiting For Your Ex to Text or Call left by my name brother Alex.
Never stop improving yourself - but don't forget where you're at, either
Note from Alex: Hey Guys, this is a guest post from Alex Strandberg over at Inner Game Reframe, and a pretty good one indeed. Read it, and go check his site out! Alex, they’re all yours…
Hello Just Keep The Change readers! Thanks for stopping by, and thank you Alex for lending me some writing space over here. Let’s get down to business, shall we?
How to avoid sitting around waiting for a text message
It has been 15 minutes since you sent her a text. You just said that you had a great night last night, and asked when you would see her again. You have read it a couple of times after you sent it – was it any good? Could you have done better?
30 minutes passes. You have been checking your cell phone like a maniac. Why hasn’t she replied?!
Who knew that you had to learn how to breathe?
To become aware of your breath is to become aware of the moment. To become aware of the moment is to be in the now. And to be in the now is to be one with all things – both good and bad.

Don't fear fear - make friends with it instead
You’re standing there, shaking. You’re mind is entirely blocked out. Sweating. Your tongue won’t let you speak. Heart rate rising. The world moves very fast, or very slow. Muscles are tight.
Fear. It’s a strange thing. Few things provoke such strong physical reactions.
It can be the worst thing in the world. But it doesn’t have to be… Read on. Continue reading
