How to feel happy

26 Aug 2015

There’s often a misconception about being happy. Being happy isn’t about making other people happy. We don’t all of a sudden become happy, because we have the ability to make other people happy or feel good about themselves.

Having grown up and missed all of my developmental delays that other children will have already come to understand as children, it is only now that I have really come to understand.

19 Aug 2015

There is no doubt in my mind that our past is responsible for shaping the way we see and live our life in the present moment and for some of us that becomes a humbling experience and for others, not at all.

Regardless of how we grow up and how are lives have been shaped, it’s important for us to live with humility, so that we learn to appreciate the small things, the things we take for granted …
