I grew up in a military family moving from place to place roughly every 4 years. That was my sense of normal and as I grew up, I found myself wanting to move regularly. I thought it was because moving was my sense of normal but recently I realized I don’t have that impulse to move. You see before, I was moving as a way of running. Running away from myself and hoping happiness would find me at my next destination. It worked a little bit because of course there was always the excitement of something new. Yet once that novelty wore off, I caught up with myself. Continue reading “Face Yourself”→
I found a talk to share for today’s post. I really enjoyed this but just wanted to advise that if you watch, please watch it to the end. The speaker makes some really great points even though he isn’t a “real doctor”. The point that I identified with the most was rumination. One of the most unhealthy habits I had was not only constantly complaining but not being able to let go of things that happened. It greatly contributed to fueling the negative mindset I had.

In this post, I’m sharing where perfectionism stemmed from for me and how I unexpectedly released it! Any perfectionists in the house? Don’t worry, I won’t ask you to say I!
I was a perfectionist for as long as I can remember. Wanting to do things just right, getting them right on the first try, and having high expectations of myself. You couldn’t please me because if things weren’t done the way I’d do them, they just weren’t right. The funny thing is, although I was […]
As someone who fought a long battle with depression for the majority of their life, I’d have to say one of the most important steps I’ve taken is cultivating a warrior’s mindset. A mindset that isn’t just positive but Continue reading “Do You Have A Warrior’s Mindset?”→
Today’s post might be a tough pill to swallow but it’s been the truth in my experience. I used to be someone whose excuses tainted my perspective. I was so caught up in the day to day that I not only lost sight of my dream but stopped dreaming. Continue reading “What’s Greater in Your Life?”→
This is a guest post written by Karin Brauner, a psychotherapeutic counsellor.
Have you ever been in a situation when you feel like you can’t keep your emotions under control? Like they have taken over, your thoughts are all over the place and making a sensible decision is not going to happen? You just want to hide for a while or make the problem magically disappear. You’re talking to people near you at that point, but they aren’t understanding what’s happening to you. Why you’re so upset and speaking like that? What is going on? Nobody can help you at that point, not even yourself. You have dealt with stuff like this before, but this time it’s different. This time you’ve lost it all. Lost the ability to cope, to think, to breathe, to ask for help even.
Think about the last time you had a few minutes to just be. Not work, run errands, do a favor, tidy up, check an email, jump online. A moment to just be in the moment. Do you remember what that feels like? I know there was a time in my life that I felt like […]
