There are a lot of factors that can influence going through an emotional roller coaster ride, and sometimes, these factors go by unnoticed.

I Used To Get Angry

I used to get so frustrated over the most minor things. One moment I’d be fine, I’d feel like I was keeping it together and then all of a sudden woosh! This emotion would rush up inside of me and I’d find myself speaking harshly or fussing about something like stubbing my toe or missing the train as if it was the end of the world.

If you’re anything like I used to be,

Stop People Pleasing!

How many times do you catch yourself saying yes to something you don’t really want to do? Going out with friends when you really want to stay in and have an early night. Helping someone move house when you have a project or assignment due. Going to dinner with family or friends when you would prefer to spend the money on something else. Picking up the phone and listening to a friend talk about the things going on in their life when you have things you of your own to deal with.

How To Make Un-Fun Things Fun

I used to think that celebrating was only for birthdays, weddings, engagements, births and so on. Until I discovered that celebrating the little things everyday was important, I didn’t just start feeling more positive emotions, I started to get more done, and started enjoying doing things I used to hate!!! It was incredible, like a secret weapon to productivity.

The feeling of celebrating is an emotion that many people save for certain times in their life.

Sick of Feeling Lost?

Have you ever found yourself looking at your life? Maybe looking at where you’re living, what job you’re in, looking at your partner and maybe your kids, your friends and maybe even looking at yourself in the mirror wondering how did I get here? “This isn’t what I pictured my life to look like” “This is not where I thought I would be right now”.

Are you confused about what you are going to do next in your life?

How I Stopped Saying…It’s Not Fair!

Have you ever caught yourself saying “It’s Not Fair” when a colleague gets promoted ahead of you (and you were more qualified!)? Is this followed quickly by the thought “Why does this always happen to me?” “Everyone else gets the opportunities, the raise, the happy marriage, the good metabolism (you know the one where you can eat anything and not get fat), but not me!” “Why is it so easy for everyone else but it’s a struggle for me?”

It’s not fair!

I Was Frustrated With Life

I used to wake up each morning; contemplating whether it was worth the effort to get out of bed and go to work that day. It wasn’t that I was depressed, it’s that I was so unbelievably jacked off at the cards life had dealt me. I was that seething in my own cesspool of anger; it felt like a way of getting revenge; for circumstances that riled me. Sometimes, life throws you a curve ball and you strike out,

I Felt So Frustrated

Why do you wake up in the morning? And…do you start your day with a bang? Are you being grateful for: the gifts in your life, a roof over your head, food on the table, a warm cosy chair. And how lucky you are, to even be alive! I know that many people around the world today are not so lucky. Some of them do not have; a home, food, shelter, or family. Imagine that,
