Having the attitude that “everything is perfect exactly as it is” feels good.

If all things are working towards the good, and we know it, then it follows that everything is… Continue reading

Freedom, Independence, and Loneliness

Originally posted on Florida Girl Writes:
Outside, the sun shines through clouds, tempting those stuck behind a window, wishing they could feel it on their skin. As a prisoner of responsibility, one is never free of anything. There is always something keeping you back. When we think of freedom we think of it as having… Continue reading

What is Success?

Originally posted on Grim and tonic:
A year ago, I would have said that success to me looks like a big house in an affluent area, a posh car, a high-level job, a family, kids in good schools and a home that looks like a Barker and Stonehouse showroom. I assessed my life, I owned… Continue reading

Draining Resentment to Clear your Head

Originally posted on AC Keeble:
One thing that gets on my head is resentment. People with mental blocks that have been caused by unhealthy attachments to bad experiences that have affected their life and got in the way of their happiness.

The Pursuit of Happiness

Originally posted on Tabusam:
One of the biggest lessons I have learnt to date, is the fact that reality is purely subjective. Overthinking is a part of human nature, however it’s highly destructive to our experiences in life and can take away from our happiness. William Shakespeare once wrote “there is nothing good or bad,… Continue reading

Lack of Self Esteem

Originally posted on Be Inspired..!!:
In reality, low self-esteem affects more people than you think. Low self-esteem refers to how you feel about yourself overall.

Perks of being Highly Sensitive

Originally posted on Girl with the Paw Print Tattoo:

Life is here to be enjoyed

Originally posted on zacalstin:
Life is here to be enjoyed, I am here to enjoy life. That is such a difficult thing for me to write. I know it sounds strange, but I’ve spent more than twenty years explicitly thinking that enjoyment is a superficial distraction from the real meaning of life. With a childhood… Continue reading
