Opinions

An opinion. Probably one of the biggest causes of conflicts regardless of where you are, who you are, or your circumstances. Everyone has an opinion, and as I am sure you will all know they are shaped by the environment you grew up in and are currently living in. Now I am also sure that many of you know that the environment in which you grew up in is not the same one as your neighbors or even people in your family. And we all know that this leads us to have very different and diverse opinions that we have … Continue reading Opinions

The Universe

My mom always said that what you send out into the universe, like your attitude or whether you are negative or positive, is what you will get back. For a long time, it simply went in one ear, and out the other, until it had become ingrained in my mind. Since then, I know this to be true; I know that if I send negative energy out into the universe and the world around me, then the universe will just reciprocate with the same negative energy. But if I began to send out positive energy into the universe, maybe it … Continue reading The Universe

Saving Ourselves

Every day we are faced with challenges and obstacles to overcome. Sometimes, however, we get faced with things that are larger than our everyday challenges, and facing those challenges takes a lot more strength and courage. Before, and sometimes even now, I will push away those challenges or avoid them. Which is why you need people around you to push you to do those things. Because pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones is not always easy, sure we do it a lot, but sometimes we need that extra push from an outside source besides yourself. We have this idea … Continue reading Saving Ourselves

Change

One of the underlying themes that run through every living thing is change. Change for a lot of people might just lead to the thing they always wanted or the thing they needed to get out of something horrible in their life. However, I understand why people think change is bad. There are times when our lives or whatever we have going on is so good, that we do not want to change anything. And the only explanation I could offer you as to why change even in the best times of our lives will happen is because of how … Continue reading Change

Spring Your Life– Goals

We’ve established our values and priorities, and now it’s time for a bit of soul searching, so buckle up! Today we are going to discuss goals, and this can be life goals, or daily, weekly, monthly and yearly goals. I am a firm believer that when we have a deadline or a goal, then our mind starts setting up to get to that point. People believe that goals can only be created once a year, around the time of New Years. But I am here to tell you that, that is complete bullshit. You can’t time your spontaneous life around … Continue reading Spring Your Life– Goals

Spring Your Life– Priorities

Welcome to the second chapter of the Spring Your Life series, where today we discuss priorities! I will be the first person to admit that 90% of the time I have my priorities out of whack. Priorities are hard to prioritize, and they are constantly changing, even on a day to day basis. Some days you might prioritize your family over friends, or some chill time over homework. The downside to priorities is that we never know the consequences that follow, those decisions until it’s too late. But, once we understand and accept our priorities, then those consequences will be … Continue reading Spring Your Life– Priorities
