You Are the Expert of Yourself and Your Life

Nobody knows you like you know you. You are the expert of yourself and your life. 

If you're not, you're in for a lifetime of anxiety and discontent.

 

Of course it can be helpful to seek counsel outside of yourself, but only if used as a tool to reveal the truth inside yourself. I always encourage everyone to seek advice but never take it. People do things because they believe they are the best options for them; however, this often gets translated to those...

happiness personal story Nov 02, 2019


At the beginning of October I stepped up to participate in The Ultimate Blog Challenge, which entails writing and posting daily for the entire month. Now that the challenge has come to a close, I'll share with you the most important thing I learned and throw a challenge your way!

 

In my original post for the challenge I talked about how I love writing but wasn't prioritizing it. It wasn't something I did every day. Now that I have been doing it daily* I discovered it's one of the...

Get the Most Out of Halloween This Year

fear happiness mindfulness Oct 31, 2019


In honor of October 31st, let's take a look at our lives through the lens of this ancient holiday known to us now as Halloween.

Halloween is pretty much the bastard child of an old Celtic festival called Samhain. Before that region of the world was colonized by the Roman Empire, the Celts marked the end of summer and the beginning of winter on November 1st, their New Year. Samhain was celebrated on October 31st when it was believed the ghosts of dead would return to earth.

Tis the season for contagious common illness like the cold and the flu. Today I'd like to offer you a well-researched preventative for illness and disease that you can start utilizing right away to boost your immune system. 

 

Temperatures are dropping (I mean, I assume they are. I live in Austin, TX so it's still sandal weather here), people are staying indoors more and librarians are hard at work shushing all the sniffles, sneezes and coughs. And let's be honest, getting sick...

How to Get Out of That Funk


When you're down, lift someone up.

 

When we get into tough states of being it's really easy to feel down and drag everything down with us. Even our lips fall susceptible to gravity. Once we're down there in the mud and muck of our own experience, it's rather difficult to see anything but the mud and muck. 


One of the quickest ways to pull yourself out of it is to intentionally lift someone else up. When you do, you'll find that you are pulled up with them! It doesn't...

The Most Unmet Human Need


I want to keep my post short today because it really is simple. 

 

I don't often make blanket statements or recommendations. I believe we are all on our own path with our own purpose and live lives that honor that. However, I have found one thing to be true across the board no matter what. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that I have yet to come across an exception.

Your first thought at the end of this post might be that you are the exception. And who am I...

Time Travel is Real

happiness mindfulness tools Oct 22, 2019

 

How much time do you spend reflecting on your past?


If you're like most people, reflections tend to fall on all of the times you misspoke, misstepped, misunderstood or simply missed out. Our present can be plagued by I should have done _____________ differently from the past, which has a grave effect on your future (not to mention ruining the present moment).

 

Does your mind wander into the future?

For many, this brings worry about the unknown. Stress over that which...

A Shortcut to End Your Suffering

 

I believe there are many options for paths to travel here on the physical plane that we call Life, Reality, Earth. I reckon they each come with different roles and reasons.

I can only speak for what I've learned on the path of the sacred warrior, that which I travel this time around. If that is also the one you are walking in this lifetime, here is one of the most valuable lessons I've gained that has helped make the journey smoother.
