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 […]

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.

Though my project happy (as I call it) is a work in progress I want to share with you 3 tips that have helped me on my journey. “To be happy, I need to think about feeling good, feeling bad, and feeling right in an atmosphere of growth.” I have thought about this a lot […]

Loving Yourself and Weightloss

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line.” ~Lucille Ball As I sat on my bedroom floor almost in tears that night, surrounded by all the clothes I’d just tried on before a night out with my friends, the same thoughts replayed through my mind. You’re fat, you’re ugly, and you’re disgusting for letting yourself […]

The Girl That Falls Down

I’ve fallen down a lot recently but I have realised that falling down is part of life. But I have realised that I am only beaten if I fall down and don’t get back up again. As long as you keep getting back up you are going to eventually reach the goals you set for […]

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
