On The Highway To Burnout. Again.

I am there again. I am letting all that energy hit me harshly in the face. And in every single and small bone of my body. I am being drained, throughout the day, without even understanding how or being able to notice it in real time. My eyes are starting to feel dry and I feel…

Stop Feeding Their Egos

You are so obsessed with him or her that you can’t do do the right math, so you keep devaluing yourself while building up their ego. The trade is not fair at all. You keep feeding them and they know, unconsciously though, that you will wait for them and thus they can keep you at whatever distance they feel comfortable with.

Refinding Balance Amongst Negative Emotions

Life is just like that: from time to time it allows you to feel some sadness and heartache, so you can savour happiness and healing when they come.

The 7 Mindful Attitudes: #1 Non-doing

We should allow ourselves to stay truthful to our inner experiences and embrace whatever arises within us. However that’s not the mindset…

The Importance of Rituals

After knowing how my body, mind and spirit would really like to start the day, I noticed the importance of translating that ideal into a ritual. I wrote down the activities I would perform in my ‘ideal morning’ and broke them into small and basic steps that I would then follow every time I would wake up.
