The Downside to Perfection

One of our biggest misconceptions in life is that we must constantly strive for perfection. Perfection of intellect. Perfection of body. Perfection of ability in work, school, interests… Perfection in life. The problem with this constant striving of perfection is that it’s simply unattainable. When we make our overall goal to perfect things that we […]

When Life Knocks You Down

Inevitably, there are going to be moments in life where we feel defeated. Sometimes things just don’t go the way we imagined, regardless of how much effort and pre-planning we put into our ideal outcome. Depending on the severity of this “let-down”, the variety of emotions that we may encounter can be plentiful. There’s no […]

Stepping Outside of Your Comfort Zone

This week’s blog post will be about something a little different from our most recent one’s. Although it has to do with our ability to believe in our selves, and illicit self-love, it is more so something that branches off of courage and faith in new beginnings. What I’m talking about is stepping outside of […]

Holding Space

“Holding space” is a phrase I’ve heard used quite frequently within the past few months. It’s something I kept telling myself I was going to learn more about, but for some reason, I just didn’t do my “research”. Finally, I took the time to really sit down and give my full attention to an article that […]

The Power Within

“I’ve been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.” -Mark Twain I’m going to ask you to just take a second to really think about this quote. Maybe re-read it a time or two and let the message really sink in. Okay, hopefully by the time you get to this […]

Accepting Yourself Completely

Piggy-backing onto last week’s blog post theme of self-acceptance and appreciating yourself for all of your positive qualities along with your imperfections, I found an article that really resonated with this topic. It seems to be a general consensus that the first step to success and happiness is self-love/acceptance. But why do we think this is? Personally, I […]

Self-Acceptance & Inner-Strength

  I’m inclined to believe that everyone, at one point or another, has been ashamed of something in their life. Whether it was something that was done to you, or something you did, or just an unattributed experience… there has been a glimmer of shame in all of our pasts. But, one of the best ways […]

Rejection:

    You would think that it would be devastating when you are rejected for the very things that you perceive are your biggest flaws. It wasn’t. The blessing is that, once we get through the disappointment, anger, and pain, if we are willing to look at the truth of the situation, we will find […]

Committment Confusion

We are slowly approaching that time of year again where the weather begins to get a little cooler. And, for some reason, when the whether seems to drop so do a lot of people’s reluctance to commit! If you believe in the foundational principles of Darwinism, then it’s safe to assume that this may be […]

Faith in New Beginnings

As I have mentioned in past blog posts, one of my favorite pass times is looking up old quotes, and of course, finding new ones. It’s so amazing to me how someone else’s own thoughts, own words, and own feelings can so closely resemble my own. The most fascinating part of this phenomenon is that […]
