If you're what I like to refer to as an ideas person, you probably have the challenge of picking what to pursue. You might find yourself with half a dozen great ideas and the thought of bringing each one to life is equally exciting. It can be difficult figuring out the best way to solve … Continue reading Picking the right project to pursue
Over the past few weeks I've been asking myself the question 'what is this blog about?'.I've been thinking about the topics I share most often and how that can be encapsulated into a few words, a clear answer to my question. Over the past few months I've been in a personal development, problem solving, self-help … Continue reading Introspection and extrospection
As the years go by, I actively and consciously learn more and more about myself, specifically the way I work. Years back I used to write monthly todo lists, I didn't realise it at the time but I was mimicking things I'd seen other people do. Sort of like people that are organised and productive … Continue reading Why I started writing daily todo lists?

As a teenager, I had no clue and so would just end up overwhelmed with days spent mulling over moments that weren't important in the grand scheme. Although i used to journal, it … Continue reading How to work through difficult feelings
A running theme throughout a lot of my posts (and what has become the baseline for this blog) is this idea of life's challenges and difficult moments having a lesson or a takeaway. Having this perspective completely changes your life. You go from things like blaming other people, being overly self critical, treating yourself unkindly … Continue reading A life changing perspective
Sometimes we put our expectations and ideals on other people without considering the other persons own wants and needs. We feel empowered when other people meet our expectations and ideals. This is fine when things go our way. However, it is important to be able to accept that the other person is entitled to their … Continue reading Meet your own needs
Imagine clearing everything out of a room until it is completely empty. You then dust, wipe the walls, vacuum the floor and then mop it. You wipe the windows and polish the glass. The space has now been freshened up and it's time to start bringing things back in. You'd be quite intentional about what … Continue reading Clearing out a room
The idea of opening up is often used to refer to situations where perhaps you're going through something. You're advised to open up to allow people to do things like support, help and care for you. But I like to apply the idea of opening up to those that are closed off, in general. Perhaps … Continue reading Opening up
