Play The Hand You Are Dealt

Whenever I am stressed, anxious or both, I have noticed that I tend to turn to games like Solitaire and Scrabble and music. Unlike zoning out with a show or YouTube videos, games keep my mind engaged and I have to be paying attention to them (instead of my wild thoughts). I am actually in […]

How is your 2018?

Has 2018 been a bit of a mixed bag so far? Talking around to some friends and just gauging the general vibe, it seems as though the business/career side of things as well as everything else has been a true mixture for a lot of us. And I can say I am pretty on par […]

Forgiveness

Anyone can hold a grudge, but it takes a person with character to forgive. When you forgive, you release yourself from a painful burden. 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 […]

Letting Go of Friendships

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 […]

Help People Help Themselves

Often when I turn to someone for advice, I’m not really looking for answers. I’m simply looking to be heard. When I do receive answers, I’m not always able to utilise them. No matter how many times others tell us what we should think or do, we are not fully able to follow their advice […]

Mental Health In The Workplace

As we I am sure you already know, one in every four people will experience some kind of mental health problem each year. But probably more alarmingly, nine out of 10 of those people will experience stigma and discrimination because of it. This is often particularly prevalent in the work place. Why Mental Health In […]

To Let Go Takes Love

I hope you are all doing well. Here’s one of my favorite poems about letting go. Unfortunately, I couldn’t track down the author of it. To Let Go does not mean to stop caring, it means I can’t do it for someone else. To Let Go is not to cut myself off, it is the […]

Be Patient With Yourself

We are all damaged. We have all been hurt. We have all had to learn painful lessons. We are all recovering from some mistake, loss, betrayal, abuse, injustice or misfortune. All of life is a process of recovery that never ends. We each must find ways to accept and move through the pain and to […]

Discouragement and Failure

While it’s easy to use failure as a great way to get discouraged about your next endeavor, it’s a far better idea to use those emotions as fuel to drive you forward to eventual success. If there was an easy path to success then everyone would take it, and it wouldn’t be so in demand. […]

Finally Free!

Everyone goes through hell, but not everyone stays there. Stop tormenting yourself by reliving the pain over and over. Good people go through terrible things, but wise people know when and how to let it go. We all know that wisdom does not come easy, it often comes from painful experiences. Many of us are […]
