Getting over the hump in life is up to you and learning to let go

The most common source of frustration or objection I hear when talking about taking life with a positive spin all the way through is the fact that if something “bad” happens, it’s “bad”. If you break a leg or lose your house or are heartbroken; none of the above are good. How about if you lose a loved one or are cheated or betrayed, how do you get passed that?


The key to stopping internal confusion so that you can move forward

The irony is that a lot of the times this confusion isn’t necessarily identifiable. From the surface you feel fine, life is going great, there’s nothing that you feel confused about; and the ups and downs you go through are to you the norm.

Getting passed bumps on the road to stop repeat patterns you don’t want anymore

Today we’re going to take a look at really understanding why you could be getting stuck in repeat patterns with anything. It could be work related or working through relationship disappointments, or even a recurring thought that seems to bring you down…

You are unique no matter what anyone else says

The beauty of people is that each one of us sees things with different eyes (from a different place); no two people experience the same event in exactly the same way.  Yes, there are generalized ideas, feelings, human behavior traits, thought processes and experiences that we talk about when addressing humans and life.  However, if

Helping others to find their own way and stop being echoes of ego-driven leaders

Leading the way to me means guiding the way with inner growth in the forefront; and when I think of a true leader, I think of someone who supports and guides others to find their own way and believe in themselves. Too often I see the title leader ascribed to individuals that aren’t promoting individuals to do things their own way. The reason for this is quite clear, a good number of people want to feel secure about the steps they take in their life, career, relationships, etc.

Dealing with family friction and finding the hidden lessons that lead to harmony

After writing the blog post on dealing with unpleasant ego driven people, it came to mind how much harder this is when the situation involves a loved one. It’s easier to remove yourself and take an objective look at the person you’re dealing with when the individual isn’t someone who’s a part of your day to day life and…

Dealing with unpleasant ego driven people and finding the hidden lessons

“Every interaction with another person can be an opportunity to grow and share love” ~ FNM I start this blog post with this statement because I’ve found it to be true with every interaction I’ve had; from the most pleasant of interactions to the least pleasant ones. Focusing on this truth or better stated, making this my natural reaction to interactions, particularly unpleasant ones, was a process…

Transforming challenges into opportunities

Any situation always has the potential of being an opportunity to further inner growth.  However, that’s easy to say when it comes to pleasant situations and people we encounter along the way.  It becomes another story when you’re faced with challenges like people that tick you off or situations that cause us pain or worry.

Moving beyond positive and negative judgements

Along this journey called life there are some that have a positive outlook, while others a negative one. Even though I use these words, I do not believe they embody the true essence of what a positive or negative outlook entail. Actually, I don’t believe they embody much, except for an initial thought that can bring about further exploration into that outlook.

What’s your identity and why is it important

When it comes to inner growth, identity plays a major role. It’s fundamental because if you don’t have a clear idea of your identity how can you really pursue inner growth? Identity helps you to identify the growth you’ve made or the growth you’d like to achieve, or even the growth you don’t want to make.
