50 things I would tell my younger self

As we get older, we accumulate more experience, wisdom and lessons (hopefully!).   Each year I reflect in a deeper and deeper way about the roads I’ve travelled along the way, the pain I’ve experienced and how I’ve grown as a result, and I look forward to taking that wisdom forward with me.   I remember being a tortured 15 year old, wondering what the fuck life was all about, seeing all this mundane shit around me and knowing there…

You must master your environment before you depart it

I was listening to a podcast the other day and the interviewee was talking about the best piece of advice he ever received from a mentor. “You must master your environment before you depart it.” There are times where this isn’t possible or safe to do so – for example, in a situation of domestic violence. But the statement got me thinking about how a lot of us will jump from one similar situation to another, never learning the lessons…

Instead of becoming bitter, become better

“Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.” – Roy T. Bennett We’ve all been treated unfairly at times ~ it’s part of life. Certain situations can lead us to feel angry, upset, mistreated and resentful. It’s perfectly normal to feel that way, but when you allow yourself to wallow in the drama of it all for…

Would you rather be in pain than spend time alone with yourself?

I was listening to a Jay Shetty video the other day and he quoted a study where people were given the option of either sitting in a room with their own thoughts for 15 minutes, or giving themselves an electric shock. 60% of men and 30% of women gave themselves a shock, rather than spend 15 minutes alone with their own head. Which would you choose? I know so many people who would really struggle to sit alone and do…
