Self-interest

Self-interest is to have an excessively high regard for oneself, to be conceited. It’s not difficult for us to see those who are.

The World Pandemic

Months into the World Pandemic and we need to start standing back and ask ourselves why we have it and what we can do to protect ourselves, if we are to have a future. Our thoughts must go out to those who are fighting the virus, for the loss of life.

We’re getting this wrong. We’re not looking after ourselves in a way that helps us or the natural world, we’re not keeping ourselves safe. We’re too quick to think about what we want, more than giving back …

The Coronavirus

I should have put out a daily blog today, but this is more relevant now. Not having or being in control is scary in itself, therefore not being in control around the Coronavirus is very scary. Not being able to make conscious decisions about what and how we live our lives even more so.

It’s not a great scenario to have, or think about, but it does give us an opportunity to think about our lives and the way we get to live. The coronavirus is a wake- up call for us individually, for society and for the …

Family disputes

When it comes to family, disputes aren’t easy to navigate. Too much water under the bridge and working together seems near to impossible. But where issues cause conflict and conflicts are not always easily resolved, arguments may ensue and resentments set in.

Disagreements are normal. We may not always agree. Occasional disagreements are part of family life. We won’t always agree on everything. But where conflict happens and family struggle to manage their …

Letting go of the past

Many of us won’t always agree that we’re holding on to the past, therefore think there’s nothing to let go of, but when you’re you’re not mentally not making any headway that is exactly what you’re doing. Many of us physically live in the present, but we emotionally live in the past.

Each experience we have reside in the past and unless you mentally move on from those experiences, it is clear you’re living in the past. Letting go of the past is important if you are to live your life and …

Finding inner peace

Finding inner peace is having self-acceptance, when you know how to achieve it. It’s as simple as having to prove yourself to every person you come into contact with, because let’s face it, you matter and there is no need for you to have to prove yourself, slightly harder letting go of the voice in your head and just letting things be.

Inner peace comes through acceptance and us just being happy with ourselves. Its path can be long or short depending on whether personal inner conflicts are resolved. It stands to reason that the more we …

There is always tomorrow

There is always tomorrow. It’s something we hold on to no matter how hard things get. That thought keeps us going, it renews our thinking. We need it more than it needs us.
