Surviving And Blossoming After a Negative Attack On Your Core-Self


Have you ever questioned your core-self because someone placed a seed of doubt in your mind? All it takes is one negative comment and who we are as an individual can quickly unravel. Personally, I have had this happen many times in my life and even recently. I am a very energetic, positive, happy and caring person and I love being ‘high vibration’, it’s who I am. Yet, on many occasions, I have been ridiculed and put down for being who I am. I have been told: “You’re such a cheerleader”, “How can you always be so happy, it’s unrealistic”, “Are you on drugs”, "Only children are this happy", and other negative comments. These deeply hurt because all I want is to be happy and for others to be happy around me, bring each other up and want the best for each other no matter what.

It's Okay To Be Lost


I believe that the one thing you really need in this world, is passion. The determination to get up in the morning, the commitment to make it through the day, and the perseverance to do it all over again. For me, these three things, form passion. It doesn’t matter who you are, or what you are passionate about, but as long as there is something in the world that matters to you in such depth that it has the ability to make you feel happy and fulfilled, life will always seem more worth living. There will be a reason behind everything you do and you will live each day trying your best to get a little bit closer to your end goal.

Understanding Karma


I truly believe that we were all placed on this earth because there is a lesson to be learnt. Who we are and the surroundings that we exist in is no accident. Everything that we are exposed to, the facets of us are all from the result of karma. Karma is a balanced mechanism. We share affinity with the people in our lives, significant or not, they are there for a reason.

Putting It Into Perspective – Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp


Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the small stuff. The common annoyances like an argument, forgetfulness, or bad traffic that we tend to dwell on.
