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.
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?
Is it a mere stroke of luck or should we do something extraordinary in order to find passion & become successful? What factors might be standing behind su... Read More...
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.

Haven't we learn the hard way that our anger often derives from frustrated expectations? This leaves us with the following question: what shall we STOP expecting from others to avoid unnecessary frustration?

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...
It’s the difference between riding the waves on the top of the ocean where it's tumultuous, and having a deeper awareness that you are the ocean, where you do not experience the up and down because you are in the steadiness of the depth. The ups and downs of the ocean still take place, but you do not experience them as tumultuous. The path to knowing who you are is not expecting your life circumstances to turn to gold, it’s the experience of staying in the joy of your beingness no matter what arises...

Somebody told me, that life is a balance of holding on and letting go. And I couldn't agree more. It's not easy to learn to let go. But here is a thing about our homes and our lives: we either collect dust-gatherers that fail to fill our lives with meaning, or we hold things that really fill our lives with something of great value.
Social Media gave me false sense of a constant "presence" next to people I cared for. If you asked me about the most memorable text message or Skype conversation, I would probably fail to recall anything. Because all the fun, great and extraordinary things that we will remember are happening out there right now in the real and beautiful world. And I would find them only if I chose to look up.

We’ve probably all been told at one point or another that “relationships take work.” But what does this really mean? Time and attention to the relationship and our partner can be confused with difficulties and struggle as we skip over the deceptively simple conversation that leaves us feeling understood, respected, and cared for...
As someone who’s struggled with self-image, I’ve realized that there is a strange contrast between being someone and feeling like someone. Some of us spend our whole lives waiting, training, studying, etc. in order to become someone. Some of us even sit around wishing to be someone, pitying ourselves, and not taking any action at all. That “someone” isn’t always clearly defined. It varies for each person. Your ideal could be anything – a doctor, a traveler, a wife, or something more general, like a kind person. If you find the notion of becoming this person a distant pipe dream, maybe you’re looking at it the wrong way...

2 years ago I had brain surgery. Now some people might say I am lucky to be alive and I am, but when I was faced with it I framed it as an opportunity. It was scary at first but one the initial shock wore off I thought “how can I go through this and still thrive?” I took it as a positive and not a negative. A chance to grow as a person even though the next year or longer of my life was going to be more different then I would ever know it. How many things have happened in your life that if you were to frame them a little differently the outcome would have been more positive?
People themselves aren't toxic. Nevertheless, sometimes our temperaments might don't align together and then"toxicity" appears. It's nobody's fault. We might not pay attention, although with time there comes a time when you are taken by surprise discovering something you haven't seen all these years of being friends. Whether it is an overwhelming feeling of being exhausted and emotionally drained after you spent some time together with someone, eventually the veil has to come down.
Very often, time management is considered just as a way to get more done, but in reality, it is something completely different. In fact, it’s a fine way to integrate the good and enjoyable components in your daily life. And in order to do that, you’ll have to use some solid time management strategies. I have gone through eight strategies in this post, so make sure to implement the advice in your own life - either as is or by creating your own versions of them.

I have been backpacking around the world for 1 year now, and one question I often get from fellow writers is, "how are you so productive? How do you get so much writing done on the road?" It wasn't always this way. At the beginning of my travels I was incredibly UNproductive - writing 1 or 2 measly articles each month. It took time to discover and develop the habits that almost all productive people abide by - and the difference is enormous. Not only am I publishing daily these days, but I've found 100s of new readers and made ton of new friends because I'm finally a consistently high performer. There are 8 essential productivity habits here that anyone can develop. Even by focusing on one or two at a time, you'll find your personal productivity takes a great leap forward.
Let's agree for a moment that arguments are pointless. Let's concede that there's not a single person in this world who thinks exactly the way you think, who knows and believes the things you know and believe, nor acts and responds to certain situations specifically in the same manner you would. Obviously, we need to remember this if we want to get along with people.
How to Love Your Body. Some people hear massage and automatically begin to daydream about being on the table and having that soothing feeling of blissful joy and relaxation take over your being. Others hear it and think, OMG! No one is putting their hands on me. Hopefully, I will be able to change your mind to the latter and increase your reasons for going to the people who are already texting their massage therapists...
