Why HOPE ‘can’ be Unhealthy

Hope – “An optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one’s life or the world at large” Hope – “The feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best” As humans/spiritual beings; we often cling on to hope more than anything and we base our happiness on the outcome of our hope.

VALENTINE’S DAY MUSING

In the spirit of St. Valentine’s Day i’m writing about love. Valentines Day is a day most lovers (faithful ones) look forward to and single people dread. It is a reminder of love & renewed vows for those in relationships and for those single ones it is a reminder of how alone you are. Today i’m reaffirming my decision to love myself more and more and stop looking for validation/identity/acceptance in a significant other. I…

BOOKS OF THE WEEK!!!

I gave up TV/Movies/TV Series for the next 4 weeks because i’m trying to focus more on the things that lead to growth in my personal life so I promised myself i would read more books. It’s not enough to give up one vice, you must replace it with something that has a positive effect. I’m trying to read 2 books a week so if anyone has any recommendations please feel free to drop in…

I imagine saying goodbye to a loved one and never seeing them again…

It’s not enough to work very hard without working smart; you will find yourself stuck in a rut and so frustrated because you will see no real growth or change…

I wrote the below 8th June 2009 and posted it on Facebook.     WHAT TRULY IS LOVE? Love love love love love love love love What truly is love? People say love is kind, love is sweet, love is beautiful, love is everything good and even more. Is that right? Or is that bullshit? I say love is that which alters not when it all alteration finds, love is a constant orgasm! Is that…

THE PURSUIT OF INSPIRATION

As much as we need food for our physical body to enable us carry on our daily lives; i find that we need just as much soul food. It’s easy to neglect our spirit and focus on fixing our body and barely getting by. I realized recently that somewhere along the way i lost my essence; ‘essence meaning the intrinsic nature or indispensable quality of something, especially something abstract, that determines its character’. I lost…
