If Only I Could Bottle This Feeling...

Here's another crap misconception. That it's egotistical to love yourself. I was accused of loving myself at school, far from the sad truth that I had a lot of healing to do before I was to understand what it meant to love myself. Now I realise it's something that people say to others when they are threatened by someone's confidence as it reminds them of what little acceptance they have for themselves... I see beauty all around me, in people, places, objects and actions. That's love and it's a very powerful thing!

Why You Struggle to Finish Your To-Do List

Stop yourself right there. Don't let yourself go down into a spiral of negativity as the deeper you go, the harder it will be to get out. Stop yourself before you even start on that downwards path. You know you're working hard and you're getting things done. You just struggle to get them done in the amount of time you'd like to get them done in.

If Harry Potter's not your thing you need only look up at the night sky to consider the concept of a whole other dimension. Astronomers refer to an observable universe for good reason. Because they know that there's an unobservable one as well - that there's more 'out there' than we're currently able to detect with a telescope, despite the technological advances of recent times.

The modern world is a manic place, juggling family life with work, keeping on top of the housework, the endless barrage of paperwork, not to mention keeping up to date with technology! There are so many things that demand our time and attention. And very often it leaves very little time for getting our own needs met.

Therapy, like life, is a journey (sorry!). Unfortunately the relationship between you investing in your psychological and emotional health and the progress you make towards happiness isn't always linear...

Given that everyone is different and we all have our own ideas about what constitutes personal growth, it stands to reason that some people would benefit from one form of therapy while other people would benefit from another form of therapy.

Feeling Unhappy? Get Walking!

Walking is a great metaphor for getting unstuck and moving forward - you can only walk when you put one foot in front of the other. You don't worry you cannot cover the distance because you learn that's all you have to do, keep putting that foot forward.

Seeing Faults in Others Is Easy, But Not Always So Welcome When We Find Them in Ourselves

Jeff Brazier | Posted 07.06.2015 | UK Entertainment

Life has to be more than just being about what's absolutely necessary, we have a network around us which needs an element of input and equality in order to thrive. What is a life without wonderful friendships and relationships? All contributing to adding layers and enriching our experience along whatever direction we pursue, it can be a lonely path when selfishness prevails, even if it is only because you initially just wanted to cope and not let anyone down.

It is possible to have a balance between our own needs and the needs of others. It isn't about being selfish, but about taking care of your own needs as well and having healthy, mutually respectful relationships.

I am seeing the huge value in the reminder the eclipse offered that we are absolutely part of a bigger picture. That there are systems at play that are bigger than the concerns of our own individual lives.

Saying Goodbye to Fred...

In my own personal experiences as a coach, changing the perception or story of the situation which creates the anxiety can be very effective. So often we forget where the anxiety came from in the first place.

When It's Time to Plan Less and Surrender More

Michaela Horan | Posted 15.05.2015 | UK Lifestyle

If having kids has taught me anything, it's the utter unpredictability of any given moment. Unwittingly they have taught (or forced - depending on the day) me to accept that I am not entirely in control.

How Undereating Is F*cking Up Your Recovery

Carrie Armstrong | Posted 11.05.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Carrie Armstrong

If my life has taught me anything then it is this: Doesn't matter what we are recovering from, all recovery is just a bridge. The start of the bridge is a destination we find ourselves that we don't want to be in. The end of it is the place where we will feel normal again.

Life Lessons From My Four-Year-Old. #1 Let It Go!

Somewhere along the way of growing up, we lose that special talent of not taking things personally and we get so serious about any little offence. We don't let other people off the hook with forgiveness easily, and we harbour ill feelings for a long, often unhealthy, amount of time.

When Housework Gets Profound

Like a spot that's ready to be burst, or the scum that rises to the surface when you cook lentils (feel free to insert your own more appealing metaphor here) when you start working on your self, the issues that have been holding you back will make themselves known to you.

Life gets much easier when we drop the judgement of others. And when I say easier I am actually talking about our life not even those we judge. When we judge others, we make ourselves separate from them and often put ourselves in a place of superiority.

Truly knowing something without judgement or old ideas getting in the way is a process. Yes we can have an intellectual understanding of something almost instantly, but that isn't enough to make actual changes in our lives. Intellectually understanding something is just the tip of the iceberg.

Oh how we love to judge! Is it not good to give our love some home truths in the form of some advice or most commonly some harsh criticisms? The majority of anything said from one partner to another would go in one ear and out the other, no matter how much sense it makes to you, it's not their perspective therefore 90% of it goes by the wayside.

We can look at some of the poorest poverty-stricken families in the world, yet they seem to find joy and happiness in their daily lives. Happiness doesn't come from outside of ourselves it comes from within. It's a mindset shift. It's a decision that no matter what is going on around us, you choose to look for happiness.
