The Importance of Self Confidence

Self confidence. For me, that's one of the most misunderstood concepts in life. I used to associate self confidence with arrogance. I wrote about something similar to this in a blog post a few months ago. But of course, it's not anything like arrogance. In fact, arrogance may very well be a lack of self…

Choosing to Choose

I don't think this blog post will be super long. I've taken kinda a mini break from blogging lately. I'm actually working on a little something that I think will work in conjunction with this blog. I hope to be able to provide more details soon... In the meantime, I've been in a pretty good…

TTT: Science and Spirituality

For this week's Ted Talk Thursday (TTT), I decided to post an awesome video that deals with spirituality and science. The speaker is Jeff Lieberman, and he’s great. I wanted to post something about spirituality, since that's been on my mind more and more lately. Its what led to my previous post and it's probably…

Hope for the Heartbroken

At some point, probably very soon, there's a post coming about specific things I've found to help with heartbreak. Some of them take less than a minute, some take  several minutes, and some take months. All of them work. But, sadly, none of them are magic (just wave a wand and everything is suddenly better).…

TTT: For the Heartbroken, How to Find True Love

For this week's Ted Talk Thursday (TTT), I decided to go with the video of Tracy McMillan. This fits right in with my recent themes of heartbreak and focusing on myself. And the point she makes in the video is absolutely true. The key to finding true love, the key to finally getting over a…

When Things Go Sideways

I have to admit, when things start to go sideways - when something horrible starts to happen - I always try to stop the skid. I try everything and I hold on tight while I get spun round and round. I stay until the accident is completely over. Put another way... When the shit hits…

TTT: Have a Good Day Everyday

For this week’s Ted Talk Thursday, I chose a talk about happiness being a choice. We all can choose to have a good day every single day. At about the 5:30 mark she talks about how external factors can’t play a role in whether we have good days or bad days. We all have the…

If You Love Something…

"If you love  something, set it free. If it doesn't come back then it was never meant to be." The saying goes something like that. Right? And that's exactly what I did with Wildflower. And now it's time to set myself free. A few night ago Wildflower took my 14-year-old to the movies and told…

TTT: Change Your Life

Here’s Mel Robbins’ Ted Talk. Most people know her from The Five Second Rule. This talk will inspire you to take care of you and to reach for your dreams. As with everything, take what you want - what feels right to you - and leave the rest behind. I especially like the part at about the 7…
