You know that already, right?

Well I’m going to assume that you do… and if you don’t, give this a read from Leo.

My question is, based off my experience in the last 6 months, and after reading this random article from Leo Babauta today, ¿can we actually fall in love and still retain our emotional balance?

Ever stop to ask why you’re doing what you’re doing?

Of course you have.

But, do you always answer it though?

The only way we grow, get better, be happier, and feel like we’re actually making progress, is to question what we’re doing and most of all, WHY we’re doing it. Then adapt accordingly.

Often we deliberately ignore this question, and the answer, because it’s difficult to deal with sometimes, or it’s just plain hard get to the bottom of it.

When sometimes who you are just isn’t enough

March 27, 2014

We all know that finding “the one” is hard, but that’s just the start of the hard. You can stand confident in your own skin; you can know who you are; you can know who you want; but sometimes it doesn’t work out anyway. Why is that? Why does it implode even when it seems […]

You’re not special. You’re something much better – you’re the same

December 29, 2013

There is the thinking that it’s a wonderful idea to teach children they’re special; some how set apart from the other kids.

December 17, 2013
