Tune back in to YOUR life.

Tune back in to YOUR life.

A friend of mine looked me dead in the eyes and said: "You have the most amazing life." I froze as my eyes glassed over with tears and my face started to burn. "Every time I see what you're doing your adventuring somewhere new, climbing mountains, jumping off waterfalls or hanging out at the beach." Still frozen as the lump in my throat almost blocked off my airways. I had no response....she was absolutely right.

Are you facing your shadow side?

Are you facing your shadow side?

When we go to work on ourselves, its important to be open to the road ahead. Normally one would relate 'working on yourself' or 'growing as a person' to getting better, whatever better looks like? Happier, a more fulfilling life, openness and more opportunities. But the road forward its not always as clear cut as we first think. Remembering that we have both a light side and a shadow side. 

Do you find communicating in some relationships hard?

Do you find communicating in some relationships hard?

There are a few relationships I have where I feel like I can tell my friend absolutely anything and there reaction will be honest and open and nothing else matters. These people, hold space for me to be who I am with no judgement and unconditional love. Do you have these people in your life? On the other hand I feel struggle with many relationships and wonder how to build a deeper connection with someone I want to feel closer to and have a deeper more meaningful friendship or relationship with. Can you relate?

Comparison - the great confidence crusher.

Comparison - the great confidence crusher.

Social media creates a warped perception of reality. Everyone chooses what they want to put out into the world. If we are not careful we easily fall into the comparison trap by seeing what someone chooses to post as their real life. If we engage in this activity too often we start to turn our focus outwards on the others and not our self.
