The Truth Over Illusion

The awareness of the decisions we make within a moment helps us to seek the truth rather than maintaining an illusion. Seeing something for what it is can be hard rather than choosing to see something as we wish it to be. Whether that be a person or a relationship, an environment, a situation and…

Something to get you Writing and Thinking

One of my favourite ideas or concepts I’ve come across through my readings (The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, if you fancy a read too) and something that I remind myself about daily is that, there is nothing that you can imagine that doesn’t already exist for you. My interpretation of this is basically we are…

The “Shoulds” and the “Musts”

The concept of “Should dos” and “Musts dos” in our lives (an idea about living a life aligned with our authentic selves). WARNING: The word should is used to excess. The Origin of Should Should, is how other people influence and see fit for us to live our lives. They are a set of cookie…

The Distance Between

The distance between railway tracks, 143.5cm (4ft 8 ½ inches). Why this particular measurement? The first train carriages were built with the same tools as horse drawn carriages. So, why that particular distance between the wheels of the carriage? Because that was the width of the old roads that the carriages had to travel along….

The Hundredth Monkey

I recently read a study conducted in 1952. Reliability and the actual occurrence of the study even taking place was called into question, that it may just be a myth. Regardless the study enthralled me and mythical or not I enjoyed it. Here’s the gist of it. Scientists were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropping…

The Generation of Instant Gratification

A generation not used to waiting leads to unsettled and anxious hearts. When presents were reserved for birthdays and Christmas, but now if we see something we want we buy it. Because it was there, we had the means, and well, we wanted it. We’re hungry, and that delicious Sunday roast that our mothers would…

A View on Equality

What essentially makes us superior to all other things that inhabit this earth? Could it be our opposable thumbs? (The thumbs we use so eloquently while writing our text messages). Could it be our ability to get in our cars and drive (I don’t know what kind of animal could do that). Could it be…

Somethings Just Don’t Matter

Front and center, it’s your pride and joy for all to see. It’s your picture of an adventurous day or a delicious meal, it’s your video of something funny you captured, it’s an opinion or information you want to share with others and it’s the well formulated response you give when your content gets a…

Travelling Lessons

We live in a society of safety and security where we’re comfortable. Where we know what we know and what we don’t know is tolerable as long as it doesn’t interfere too much with our daily routines, norms or change what we know. Where difference is okay and sometimes interesting to learn about but it…

Meant to be Felt (The Range of Human Emotion)

Do not have a bad thought about anyone. Do not say bad things about others. Refrain from being negative. Do not get angry at others. Don’t show too much happiness around others (people may misinterpret your feelings). Be positive at all times and wish everyone well. Most important of all, whatever you do, DO NOT…

This I Believe

(This piece of writing is based on the book “This I believe” a compilation of expressions of core principles that govern your life. Try writing something like this. A lesson you’ve learnt, the one rule you choose to live by, something you believe so strongly in. This was such a good read, and there’s definitely…

Socially Challenged in a Social World

We’ve never been more connected to the world around us and people have never been more accessible. The click of a button allows us to contact our loved ones, catch up on what our friends are doing, meet new people, online shop, become social networking moguls and keep up with the ever changing cyber landscape…
