I have a problem with certain weeks or months that are dedicated to raising awareness about an issue because I think for a lot of people it is all about hashtags on Twitter, but the meaning of what the awareness really stands for is lost. When it comes to serious issues like Mental Health Awareness, […]
You need to do hard things to be happy in life. Because the hard things ultimately build you up and change your life from the inside out. Daily stress is one of the primary causes of major mental and physical health problems in our lives: it can cause heart disease, anxiety, sleep deprivation, auto-immune disorders, […]
It’s ok to not be ok at Christmas but here are some tips to help to keep you positive: 1. Make the best of whatever situation you are in. I know this can be particularly hard if you are not at all interested in doing some of the holiday activities, but, believe me, making the […]

Forgiveness doesn’t mean what happened was OK, and it doesn’t mean that person should still be welcome in your life. It just means you have made peace with the pain, and […]
I’ve learned that things change, people change, and it doesn’t mean you forget the past or try to cover it up. It simply means that you move on and treasure the memories. Letting go doesn’t mean giving up… it means accepting that some things weren’t meant to be. It happens as we get older and […]
