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…

“All is fair in Love and War”

Love isn’t a definable emotion it will always be a different concept to all. However if you were to type into Google “Definition of Love” you would find. A strong feeling of affection.
