    Gordon Thomson (Dynasty, Santa Barbara)

    in Entertainment

    Gordon Thomson is a Canadian actor. His most prominent role was in the American prime-time soap opera Dynasty playing the villainous Adam Carrington, son of Blake Carrington (John Forsythe) and Alexis Colby (Joan Collins). He began acting while studying English at McGill University in Montreal. Having received acclaim for stage performances in productions as diverse as Love's Labours Lost, Godspell and Joe Orton's Loot, Thomson gained a place on ABC's Talent Development Program, which led to Dynasty's producer Aaron Spelling personally casting the Canadian as Adam Carrington in the show. Thomson debuted in Dynasty in 1982 and remained with the series until its cancellation in 1989. During the 1985-1986 season, Thomson also appeared in three episodes of the Dynasty spin-off, The Colbys.
    After Dynasty ended, Thomson returned to daytime soaps. In 1990, he joined the now defunct series Santa Barbara (as the third actor to portray the character Mason Capwell). However, his commitment to Santa Barbara left him unable to reprise his role as Adam Carrington in the TV mini-series Dynasty: The Reunion in 1991 (he was subsequently replaced by British actor Robin Sachs). Thomson has also had roles on The Young and the Restless, Passions, the now defunct Sunset Beach, and in 2009 he appeared on Days of our Lives. Thomson is currently guest starring in web series DeVanity as Preston Regis alongside series regular Kyle Lowder as son Andrew Regis.
    Aside from acting, Gordon Thomson's television work also includes a spell as guest host for Britain's ITV network on their then breakfast show Good Morning Britain, for which he also covered celebrity events such as Wimbledon and Royal Ascot.

    Get Healthy Now, Denise Thomson, How To Start Forgiving?

    in Health

    Recap of last few weeks:


    Forgiveness in the Faith based field


    Forgiveness in the Criminal Justice field


    Forgiveness in the Medical field


    Forgiveness from the Scientific standpoint


    Today's topic: How To Start Forgiving?


    Keep Calm and Let Go


    "The past has no power over the present moment." - Eckhart Tolle


    Stop trying and start being.


    Stop trying for a while.


    Be in charge of your thoughts and emotions (Be the watcher of your thoughts)


    By not judging your thoughts or blaming them on anyone else, and merely watching them, there will be a big shift within you - your sense of self worth.


    Love yourself for who you are and where you are in your life right now, right here.


    Learn to replace anger, hurt, frustration, vengeance into present love.


    The bottom line is that the best revenge is happiness, because nothing drives your adversaries more insane than seeing a fresh smile on your face. (Read Buddha's Brain.)


    Let go of the need to firgive every mistake.


    Mistakes are the growing pains of wisdom. Most of the time they just need to be accepted, not forgiven.


    Feel how your body shifts from feeling hurt and upset to peaceful and loving. (does not mean forgiveness, just realizing where you are)


    Don't hold on to false beliefs, let go of what you cannot change. Live the best you can be and do day by day --> no need to forgive.and no regrets.


    So, How do we start forgiving? Step by step, letting go of what cannot be changed, turning anger, revenge, hurt into love and enjyoing it.
