We all know that life never happens like you want it to. The good and the bad have their own way of unfolding and it never happens when you expect it to happen. You can try with all your might, but you’ll never be able to control it. Although you don’t have much control over what will happen to you, the one thing you do have complete control over is how you interpret it – your perspective.
Happiness. A very common and overused word – one which we all hear on a daily basis, but what does it actually mean? Can anyone provide a definitive explanation? I looked it up and it turns out that no: even dictionaries of the highest calibre seem to struggle.
Recently I've been thinking about times when we are judgmental of others. Why does it take so long to recognise that if we are judging others there is a little part of us that wants to be more or less like them?
The quality of your life is the quality of your relationships. Through my teens and early 20's I often found myself drained and unfulfilled in my relationships. I often felt like I was giving more than what I was receiving. I often felt like I was the one searching for more connections and trying deepen and make them more, well, real.
Relationship advice is everywhere! It seems like every time I turn around, I hear or read someone's two cents on a relationship that isn't theirs. The more I think about it, the more I believe that exposing yourself to this information is a bad idea, unless you're getting it straight from a certified professional. It's okay to occasionally vent to loved ones or read articles that give simple relationship tips every now and then. In fact, doing so can be quite helpful and therapeutic if done in moderation. But making relationship gossip and advice seeking a habit or giving away too many details to too many people can ultimately be detrimental to an otherwise perfectly good relationship. 5 Reasons to Avoid Seeking Relationship Advice From Non-Experts...

Being selfish (in a good way) is a conscious choice you can make to refrain from any action or interpretation that is harmful to you. The reality is that to be truly happy, sometimes you need to put "you" first. So, if you decide to take extra good care of yourself and be happier, become more selfish in the way you treat your Human (emotions, body, and mind.) That’s the kind of selfishness I think we can all embrace.

Do you ever wonder why you’re not getting what you want? Maybe it’s the job, the relationship, the money, the passion, the excitement, or the love? Well, here’s the good news – you’re not alone. This is something many of us struggle with on a constant basis. I am here to tell why these limiting beliefs are blocking you off from getting what you want and how to begin confronting and combating them. Still not getting what you want? Here's why.
Death reminds us that taking any moment, or any day, for granted is foolish. Remembering the fleetingness of your life can inspire a remarkable life and it should. Remembering death is our only certainty in this wildly uncertain life can inspire you to never overlook the ordinary...
When you think of the phrase 'letting go', it conjures up all sorts of images, thoughts and feelings doesn't it? Freedom, free falling, a sigh of relief, moving forwards, uncertainly - all kinds of things. Learning to know how and when to let go has been a big one for me. Letting go ultimately enables me to stress less, sleep more, feel free and just 'be'. It also brings up fear and uncertainty but for me, that's much better than the stress, angst and anxiety of clinging on. The thing about letting go is that in today's society we're not really conditioned to embrace it. It's all about being proactive and making stuff happen. Also, as someone building a business, there are many things I need to do and goals to achieve and 'letting go' doesn't really support that notion of work, work, work until you succeed! However, what I have found - in all areas of life actually, is that by letting go you let in all the things that in some weird, mystical or mysterious way, work for you so that all that graft doesn't feel quite so much like the 'sweat, blood and tears' we apparently need to endure to get things done.
As I was debating the pros & cons of accepting the job and losing unemployment, my mom surprised me by saying: “Keep your focus on what you want to do with your life and not this job.” All this time I thought she just wanted me to get a job. If you want to follow your dreams, you have to say NO to all the alternatives...
We are raised in a society that generally has a lot to say about who we should become. It can be extremely difficult to separate the expectations placed on us from our own true thoughts and feelings. Sometimes our own thoughts are intertwined with those from our family, friends, teachers and community, that we have to dig deep to discover what feels right and sacred for ourselves...

The death of a loved one is a very painful reminder that life is way, way too short. I remember my friends telling me to focus on my job, so that I get over that period after my father’s death. And I did. I went to my job every single day to keep myself busy. And you know what?...
