I had a dream it was beautiful

I had a dream it was beautiful, it gave me purpose, it gave me drive. I pursued it relentlessly. I traveled far and wide, I practiced religiously. It was perfect, the work was effortless, I loved doing it all the time. Music —…

End suffering by: expecting nothing and appreciating everything

The worst pain we ever feel times is self-inflicted. Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional. We choose to suffer when we choose not to accept the pain and move on. Anyone can lose a job, money, etc. Bad things happen to…

I’ve put off writing this one for a long time. It’s one of those struggles that has hampered my life in many ways. Also, I’ve experienced many failures in my quest to rid of the toxic habit. …

Do not look for healing at the feet of those who broke you

A quote from ‘Milk and Honey,’ by Rupi Kaur

I’ve been guilty of this many a time. The fear of being outcasted forces us sometimes to go against our better judgment. To keep people in our lives who we know are detrimental to our well-being. Maybe it’s a relationship, maybe…
