As it's something so personal, it's easy for other's to think from the outside "Why should you be self conscious, you're quite slim." I really wanted to … Continue reading My Journey And Relationship With Food

Why We Need To Stop Saying “I’ll Be Happy When…”

Happiness is a journey, not a destination. It's common for all of us to say to ourselves that we'll feel satisfied when this or that happens. When we do this, it distances us from the present moment, because we'll always be chasing and reaching out for something ahead, while never fully grasping and enjoying the moment. … Continue reading Why We Need To Stop Saying “I’ll Be Happy When…”

Daily Thoughts: Live Each Day As If It Is Your Last

There are certain phrases that make me ponder about our existence on Earth. It's common to hear they'll always be tomorrow. Especially if you've had a bad day.

Why Being Skinny Won’t Make You Happy

You know what got me thinking? As a society we tend to compare a lot. Whether it's unconsciously throughout our everyday life, or the constant digital world bombarding us with comparisons of looking like this or that.

I've been having an itch to write this for a while, because this topic has been on my mind for quite some time.

The Truth about Introverts

When someone is happy, angry, sad, joyful, loving and all the feelings you can possibly imagine, there is a story etched in the expression of their face. We feel differently to everyone.

Happiness

What is happiness? Happiness is not a thing, but a feeling from our heart. When I read my daily devotion yesterday morning, it really opened up my eyes about what is really true happiness.
