My Facebook feed has been inundated with status updates about how horrible the year has been to people. This is followed by how glad people will be to see the end of it and how much they want 2017 to be better.

There has been […]

Learning to Fly

By |September 29th, 2016|Positivity, Self care, Self Doubt, Spirit|2 Comments

I’m standing on the edge of a high rise about to leap off the side. I know I’m ready to step into the air because my wings are waiting, fully built, ready to unfurl and take me flying.

How being positive changed my life – Part 1

By |May 26th, 2015|Mental Health, Positivity, Self care, Self-Esteem, Spirit, Wellness|0 Comments

As a child your mind is plastic. Very plastic. Which means that it’s easily influenced and changeable. So when you’re told certain things again and again, you hear messages about how you’re supposed to think and feel. Every time you hear these messages they are reinforced and as you grow older they become set.

Today I’d […]

Do you ever feel like you need to stay quiet to keep the peace? Do you feel like you can’t let people know how you feel? Do you ever wonder what actually happens within yourself when you hold your tongue and refrain from speaking the things that are important to you?

It is officially November 30, 2014. Which means that this is the final day of the NaBloPoMo challenge, and our series on stress.
