Living life until the end
by Helen Snape

My mother has cancer. I haven’t written about it before as it is a personal, difficult thing to think about and I didn’t really know what to say. People often don’t really know what to say to me either.

Take Nothing In Life For Granted
by Chris Magee

I was casually strolling by my apartment this morning. Beside my house is a park where many people walk their dogs. One man approached me to ask about my other business and we started chatting about why he needed the multi-gym he was requesting me to deliver.

How to Deal with Rejection and Failure
by Chris Magee

Rejection.

Even saying it out loud can bring up a painful memory.
Maybe it was a girl we really loved who no longer felt the same way.
Maybe it was being casted out by the cooler kids in school because we weren’t tall enough or good enough at football.

Why are we unhappy? On the “desire” to be happy
by Dasha Lukiniha

Have you ever wondered why we so often tell ourselves – “I’m fed up with this job”, “I’m fed up with these extra 10 kilograms hanging from my belly”, “I’m not happy in my relationships”,” I want change”, “I’m going to make it happen”! And so we become engrossed in this wonderful feeling that slowly cocoons our whole body in its warmth.

Procrastination – a case of laziness or something deeper? Part 3 – On conquering Mount Everest
by Dasha Lukiniha

This one can be particularly big when it comes down to chasing after the things we really want. Have you ever found yourself in a place of deciding to change something in your life, be it making a career change, losing 20 pounds or maybe opening your own business? Feels great in that moment, right? And the anticipation of all the good stuff that will come out of this transition is making you itch to get down to business, right?? And then a day goes by.

Procrastination – a case of laziness or something deeper? Part 2 - On the little monster inside
by Dasha Lukiniha

In my first article on procrastination I focused on a phenomenon of pursuing “fake goals”, i.e. the ones aren’t authentic to us (please find it earlier in the feed on this page). So if we find ourselves habitually postponing something, this can often mean that we don’t want to do it at all.

The battle to be you
by Helen Snape

Carl Rogers said of his book On Becoming a Person, that it was about “…a client in my office who sits there by the corner of the desk, struggling to be himself, yet deathly afraid of being himself…” This struck home with me on so many levels.

Procrastination - a case of laziness or something deeper? Part 1- On our "good to haves", "musts" and unicorns
by Dasha Lukiniha

I used to call myself a serial procrastinator putting some things off until very last minute, causing me to wreck havoc in my schedule, airline tickets costing way more than they should and some very angry friends at times.

Are you your own priority?
by Dasha Lukiniha

Today I’d like to share with you a story of evolution of what putting yourself in the back seat looks versus making yourself your own priority. I hope you find these tips useful.

Throughout my teenage years I always thought I make myself my absolute priority, I mean why wouldn’t I, since it’s my life, right? I always had an impression of myself as someone who knows what they want and goes for it.

The Energy of the Company we keep
by Helen Snape

I used to think that it shouldn’t matter what other people were like – sad, angry, cynical or happy – because I should be able to not take on their feelings. Notice the ‘should’ talk there.

When colleagues would tell me how difficult their job was or how their manager was such an ass and I would feel their stress and frustration, I would struggle to not take their negative energy away with me.

Freedom in relationships
by Helen Snape

“If you love someone, set them free. If they come back, they’re yours; if they don’t they never were.”
Unknown

This is beautiful and has been my experience. Fully embracing it though is damn scary and takes the kind of courage I don’t normally have.

Is it time for a cleanse?
by Latasha Oliver

The body is designed to be self-cleaning and to excrete toxins, but here’s the problem….

It can’t always handle the toxic overload present in today’s environment.

Chemicals not excreted accumulate in our fat cells and cell membranes become internal toxins.

Living a Balanced Lifestyle is Vital
by Latasha Oliver

Are you living a balanced lifestyle?

Do you want to create a more balanced lifestyle so that you can shine, not just in one area of your life, but in ALL areas of your life!

But first, why am I talking about living a more balanced lifestyle?

We spend a lot of time compartmentalizing the various areas of our lives: relationships, career, money, exercise, health… but we all know that if one area is out of whack, our WHOLE life is affected.

Nourishment for you Body, Mind, & Soul
by Latasha Oliver

Ways to Nourish yourself without Food….

I’m here to share some out-of-the-box ways to think about nourishing your body, mind and soul…

But wait, why am I even using the word “nourishment” if I’m not talking about food?

Great question!

The reason I am using the word nourishment outside of its regular food context is because we often find ourselves so over-focused on food that we forget about all the other simple but yet important ways to nourish ourselves.

by Latasha Oliver

by Helen Snape

Abraham Hicks

Recently I had someone really take against me (I know, hard to believe).
