There is at least one tiny, positive step you can take right now (because there always is). Don’t build mountains in your mind. Don’t try to conquer the world all at once. When you seek instant gratification (big, quick fixes) you make life unnecessarily painful and frustrating. When you choose instead to treat each moment […]
To get good at something, you need to love the process. The people who get good at singing songs are those enjoy doing scales and warm up exercises, who take time to write their own songs. The people who get really good at football are those who enjoy the physical and tactical side of the […]
Burn the candles; use the nice sheets; wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
Most of us are familiar with the practice of loving and caring for our parents, children, or significant others. And although we do so imperfectly, we do our best to practice this love for them on a daily basis. But do we attempt to practice the same level of love and care with ourselves? Most […]
Never lose sight of your competition. Stay close to them. Watch them. And even learn from them – not just what to do but also what NOT to do.
The amazing Amy talks about how mums can be dreamers too. A quote that stands out: If we want to raise world changers, we need to believe we are changing the world.
The way I see it, you are not losing when someone reveals their true colours, you just have to respect it and keep it real with yourself. You have to not try and paint a different picture of them and just remember: You will never lose what is meant for you but you will always […]
Often we want just a tiny range of life experiences – the good times, the comfortable situations, the experiences that make us happy. And yet, the reality we are faced with every day is quite different. Life gives us a broad range of very different experiences that gradually wrap our emotions up in anger and […]
“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” A lot of the time, you don’t need to stress, worry, analyse and overthink. You need to take it one step at a time and let go of the bigger picture. It’s a lot more complex to attempt to solve everything all at once, when […]
“We’re all just walking each other home.” We have to look after each other. We have to make sure we all get to wherever we are going together. It’s so incredibly easy to forget to be human, and we do it all the time. We hurt other people. We betray other people. We ignore other […]
If you take everything personally, you will inevitably be offended for the rest of your life. And that just isn’t worth it! At some point it becomes crystal clear that the way people treat you is their problem, and how you react is yours. Start taking full advantage of the amazing freedom that comes to you […]
Just like happiness, getting rid of things you do not need in your life is a choice. You don’t usually get forced into it (though sometimes this can happen) and usually no one is going to do it for you (how often to people really come into your house and start de-cluttering?). Therefore, it’s all […]
