R E S I L I E N C E : the ability to get punched in the face over and over again

  Would you describe yourself as a resilient person? Resilience is about a persons capacity to recover from shitty situations, to be able to “spring back into shape” no matter what life throws at you. What helps make someone resilient? resilient peeps have a realistic awareness of self they’re adaptable they’re optimistic they’re pragmatic the ability to be autonomous they’re connected to others they have self-compassion   There’s always going to be challenging shit that comes at us in life.…

Stop saying “should” – use “will” and “must”

  How often do you tell yourself you “should” do something? I really should save money instead of buy that thing. I really should get up earlier to get to the gym. I really should look after myself better. Should doesn’t often eventuate because there’s already a lack of commitment in the statement.

Sometimes we don’t need advice. Sometimes we just need to know we’re not the only one.

  Have you ever gone through a challenging time in life and felt completely alone?   Like you were the only one in the world going through something like this?   Like nobody would understand?   You don’t talk to anyone about what you’re going through as you’re worried they’ll judge you.   When we’re going through crisis and chaos in our lives, we can feel isolated and alone.   But when we come out the other side and share…
