By constantly putting myself out there, challenging myself at work, and trying out new activities I have learned a few things about failure and how to handle it with a more constructive and kind approach.
First of all, failure is feedback showing what didn’t work and how to tweak it…
Putting labels on others based on quick glimpses is something that we all do, more or less, especially on social media. Because it allows us to quickly make sense of others.
However, when you put a label on people, it limits how you view them. It also limits your curiosity…
Everywhere we can read about transformational journeys. People share “how it started” and “how it ended” to show the trajectory of their personal growth journeys.
But why is it so little written about the “in-between” phase?
About the fact that most of people’s lives in trying to achieve their own…
Everyone has traits that ruin things for them in life.
Some people believe that these traits are the inherent part of their personality. Which is fair enough.
The others are convinced that their character is under the influence of their star sign. That is completely understandable too because it makes talking about…
I personally believe that interpersonal relationships sit above physical and mental health in terms of importance. Because most of our issues stem from unhealthy human interactions.

Absolutely anyone can do it!
Spoiler alert: trying to be strong is a bit of a rocky road. But don’t let that stop you!
Are you a chronic complainer?
I have always been a “month in advance planner” since I was very young. I don’t know it is my star sign or personality or circumstance. But I loved scheduling tasks for exact times in life and at work and sticking to the plan. I felt angst without a plan…

We CAN become stronger than we ever imagined.
But strength doesn’t come from what we can do. It comes from overcoming the things we once thought we couldn’t.
Several years ago I was stuck in a very dark place and I…
Habits and routines are our friends — when they’re good ones. They help us keep projects and tasks on track with minimal mental effort. They help us relieve stress, free up time and energy. They help us repeat effective behaviors and build consistency in our lives.
