When you blame others, you give up your power to grow

When you blame others, you give up your power to grow

Although no one likes to admit it, we all have our dark sides and shadows; those less-than-flattering sides of our personality that like to abuse and shame others in many ways. From the subtle-underground remarks to the down- right-nasty hostility towards others. Devilish, but delicious! Unfortunately, we often send these ‘love bites’ to people that are closest to us, such as our partners and family members.

Why its OK to put yourself FIRST

Why its OK to put yourself FIRST

Winter is here.  The cold and dark environment often brings a darker mood on our horizon.  Or is it simply because you have been trying to supress your stress as a result of juggling responsibilities between your children, house chores, life partner, work, study?  Or perhaps lack of sleep and no time for yourself? If you are a high achiever kind of person and don’t have much of a support system, you can put yourself in a danger zone of having a meltdown.  Please remember that if we don’t nurture ourselves, we can’t be fully there 100...
