Guest Post: You Grow From Your Challenges

Another Reminder! So I learnt something about Happiness today. Happiness is a decision. And sometimes happiness is not really a ‘thing’ at all, but a decision. Deciding to live with a spirit of gratitude. Choosing to be thankful, to see the bright side, to love and smile and have hope, regardless of what’s in the… Continue reading Guest Post: You Grow From Your Challenges

Honesty and Acceptance is What Will Heal the Hurt in a Broken Relationship

In your relationship, do you feel confused, exhausted, anxious, unbalanced, used, drained, unstable and stressed sometimes or most of the time?

Please Share Your Thoughts And Experiences On Livelihood

Here I share some random thoughts on livelihood as an opening to reader comments on the subject. I wish society was more about teaching people to expand on their gifts and passions, rather than pushing everyone to go for the money.

Releasing Things That No Longer Serve Us

Your Well Being ALWAYS Comes First

In healthy, loving relationships there is mutual care, support, consideration and love. This seems obvious, but sometimes people were raised in dysfunction and have no clue what a healthy relationship is. For most of my life, I've been in this club and only beginning to painfully figure it all out within the past couple of… Continue reading Your Well Being ALWAYS Comes First

Visualizing What We Want Rather Than What We Don’t Want

Most of us are living life on auto-pilot. Going to work, coming home, eating, watching some TV, chores, sleeping and repeating. Just getting by.  Surviving. Much of the time our thoughts are on our problems.  Our debt, health issues, relationship issues, etc. This can cause anxiety and depression. What if we spent our time thinking… Continue reading Visualizing What We Want Rather Than What We Don’t Want

Unconditional Joy

For most of my life, having a good day or a bad day depended on what was happening in my life. When I weighed myself going up or down one pound was the deciding factor for how I felt that day.

Letting People Be Responsible for Their Own Lives

When people are not responsible for their own lives and happiness it can hurt those that love them by putting a burden on them - a burden that is not theirs.

Fulfilled and Single, FINALLY

I've been pretty much single for 12 years since my divorce.  I've had four very short-term boyfriends during this time but they didn't last long enough to even feel like a real relationship and I never lived with any of them.

Experience Joy by Being in the Now

When I am completely focusing on my passions, I feel completely fulfilled.  Usually this state takes no effort.  For me it usually happens in the morning and lasts a few hours, then when there are things that need doing, like work, errands or chores, I am taken out of that wonderful flow.  If I do… Continue reading Experience Joy by Being in the Now

How Quitting My Job Gave Me Freedom

About 2 months ago, I quit a really good job, completely randomly. When I say random, I mean totally random. I had no back up plan: no savings; it was completely impulsive (As I tend to do most things in life :P). Well, I thought about the decision for about two days before quitting.. Most… Continue reading How Quitting My Job Gave Me Freedom
