They would have kept their heads down, denied knowledge of the envelope's existence, and not reached out to help that person as I had done. But if we opt for the former, what is the message we're passing on to future generations?

Don't Make This Mistake With Your Pregnancy And The Upcoming Birth Of Your Baby

The real truth is none of us own a crystal ball or a time machine so predicting how your baby's birth will be for real just isn't possible. So you end up perceiving a birth experience that's unhelpful, filling you with anxiety when you should be looking forward to meeting your baby for the first time.

my mother's birthday. The doctor called my parents in to break the news to them. "From the brain scans, we can see that your daughter's lower brain area is completely gray." "Our conclusion is that she had a stroke," "I am sorry to inform you this, but the brainstem is so severely damaged that she would not be able to move voluntarily at all for the remainder of her life."

Never Give In

I've long told bemused friends that I'm not afraid of being haunted and that I actually think it would be quite cool if it happened. Whilst some say that they would rather die themselves than be visited by the dead I don't see what all the fuss is about.

Feel Like A Failure? Think You're Powerless? This Is for You

When we remain locked into these kinds of thoughts, invariably we will be overwhelmed with "negative" emotions, such as sadness, grief, jealousy, frustration or anger. What you're thinking about will always lead to what you're feeling. So if you don't like how you feel, you must change your thoughts.

Personally now with that mind-blowing wonder of hindsight, I can look back over the past twenty odd years, if not more of my life and I have to question whether the constant fretting that I seemed incapable of stopping served any purpose whatsoever.

Why Young People Need to Train Their Minds to Be More Positive

Leah Sian Davies

When I suggest this idea to young people I sometimes get a weird look at first, but those who give it a go and stick with it start to see things in a new light, they start to feel better about themselves, enjoy things more, lighten up and stop comparing themselves with others. It's pretty cool actually and I guess you could say they ditch the 's**t smeared specs' for a pair of 'rose tinted' ones instead.

Taking Myself Out of the Statistics

I feel in control, I feel positive, and I feel myself healing. I am happy with my medical choices, but I know that it is equally thanks to my positive attitude, and the spiritual work I am doing in parallel, that I am on my path to healing. I have taken myself out of the statistics, and I am urging you, fellow cancer survivors, to take control, find your cure, and take yourself out of the statistics as well!

Are We Imprisoned By Our Thoughts?

Noa Popovsky | Posted 20.05.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Noa Popovsky

We have about 60,000 thoughts per day, or 42 thoughts per minute! That's right... We are more in our head than in the world. We interpret and dissect the world in our head, and create our own truth, our own reality. We decide on actions according to our conclusions. Therefore, it is logical to say that our thoughts create our reality.

Learning to Accept 'Okay'

Adding 'okay' to your vocabulary is so vital in today's society when there is pressure from every angle. When you're expected to do unpaid overtime, have a 'perfect' house, a 'perfect' body and a 'perfect' social life all at the same time (which, by the way, is entirely unrealistic). You are okay. You really are okay. And most of the time, so am I.

It's quite controversial to admit that being your goal weight didn't work for you, and that it wasn't something you wanted to attain, but it's a topic that should be discussed more often in the fitness community, especially when it comes to promoting body positivity.

However our New Year's resolutions may have been going (or not going) so far, in the spirit of Februa we can take this month as a chance to start again and refocus on what really matters.
