Embracing Our Anger to Understand It Better

Anger’s a highly misunderstood and underappreciated emotion that’s simply doing its job and trying to get our attention to consider what may not be working so well in our life. Instead of embracing our anger and trying to learn from it, we’ll do other things, like let it run wild, try to bury it, and… Continue reading Embracing Our Anger to Understand It Better

The Beauty of Practicing Self-Compassion

 For most people, it’s a sad and undeniable truth, we lack having compassion for ourselves. If we’re capable of showing compassion, “sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others”, we easily shine it on others but struggle giving it to ourselves. I believe compassion is what connects us to our humanity and,… Continue reading The Beauty of Practicing Self-Compassion

We Reap Where We Sow

Brilliant success is a result of the hard work that goes into producing it. Like any crop, we reap what we sow. If nothing goes in, nothing comes out. As much as we wish to have spectacular results in our life, it’s a childish dream to believe it happens merely from wishing and wanting it… Continue reading We Reap Where We Sow

Priority is a Singular Word, Not Plural

I have no idea when priority, meaning “prime concern, first concern, matter of greatest importance” and “a thing that is regarded as more important than another” or the British definition of “the right to take precedence or to proceed before others”, became accepted as a plural word. By definition, and for all practical reason, only… Continue reading Priority is a Singular Word, Not Plural

Taking Time for Things that Bring us Joy Each and Every Day.

Between the many "to-dos", and "must-dos", and "have to-dos", it's important to remember to take time to do something, simply for the joy of it! Joy is a vital ingredient we must deliberately add to our day. It can feel like a magic pill, a breath of fresh air, a warm hug and lovingly says,… Continue reading Taking Time for Things that Bring us Joy Each and Every Day.

Needing Inspiration or a Dose of Hope? Return to the Literary Wonderlands

Yes, living a productive and responsible life is a respectable and mature goal but it can come in the price of loosing our capacity to be lighthearted. While lighthearted is indeed a feeing of being carefree, cheerful, free and easy, and happy go-lucky, which some consider immature and irresponsible, it's also a feeling that is gentle, playful, and easygoing. Being lighthearted is a beautiful way of balancing the tension and tediousness of adult life. Take a trip down memory lane and dive into your favorite fairytale from childhood. Relax and reconnect with far-away dreams, endless possibilities, and the grit to see them through. Perhaps restore the buried hope that you can do anything you put your mind to, and your treasure is out there waiting for you!

Make Space for Moments of Peace in the Daily Grind

Peace is contagious. We have the power to choose peace. In our thoughts, actions and interactions. When everything around us seems to be upside down and we're struggling with personal change, one thing we have immediate control over is ourselves! Find time to get quiet and focus on the peace there. Then try to bring it with us in whatever we're doing throughout the day.
