Dating After Divorce (Do it!)

15.10.2018 in Love, Personal Development, Positive Thinking, Relationships, Stress Management

From Sivana By Sonya tomas 

“We’re getting into mating season” my girlfriend mentioned, now that parkas were being traded for bare legs with the warmer weather. She was encouraging me to write a post on dating. Hmm…where to begin?! Back when I got divorced, I had originally felt like my dating muscles had atrophied to Jell-o. But now I’m grateful that my curiosity for what’s possible long overshadowed my shyness and fear of rejection. So this post is to encourage those who deep down want to bare their legs again but are feeling hesitant about jumping back into the dating scene after a break-up.

Overcoming Envy: How to Stop Feeling Inferior and Insecure

“Comparison is the thief of joy.” ~Theodore Roosevelt

If you are suffering from the painful sting of envy, know that you are not alone. I was there too, for a very long time. Envy can be a crippling emotion. For me it has been connected to my depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

It has been a very painful twenty years since my attachment to envy began, involving comparison, competition, judgment, harsh criticism of myself and others, in a never-ending, futile attempt to soothe my wounded ego.

I was constantly,

5 Steps To Consciously Combat Jealousy

10.10.2018 in Empowerment, Life Skills, Personal Development, Positive Thinking, Relationships, Stress Management

From SivanaSpirit By Lisa Cappiello:

I’d like to believe that because I’m a yogi, a healer, and an ongoing spiritual seeker, that I’m immune to jealousy. Especially since I believe that jealousy is such an unnecessary, low-vibrational state of being, and I never want it directed toward me. But I’d be lying. Truth be told, there are still times that my ego gets the best of me and I fall prey to the green-eyed monster.

Just as it did recently, when one of my boyfriend’s social media followers was, in my opinion, a bit too flirtatious with her commentary.

Why We Might Feel Lonely and What to Do About It

05.10.2018 in Healing, Health, Life Path, Life Skills, Personal Development, Positive Thinking, Self Love, Stress Management

By 

“We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community.” ~Dorothy Day

Throughout my life it’s been really hard to admit when I’ve felt lonely.

I’ve been through intense periods where I have been without others.

I’ve been surrounded by people yet have felt no real connections.

The people I have loved have been physically or emotionally absent.

I’ve simply been alone over weekends, over weeks, over months, over years, and it has been grueling and horrible.

There’s a Difference Between Alone and Lonely

“He who lives in harmony with himself lives in harmony with the world.” ~Marcus Aurelius

At the end of August I moved to Madison, Wisconsin. This was my second major move in a year.

In both cases, I was separated from almost my entire prior social network. After college, making friends seems like a totally different ball game.

Here in Madison, I wake up before five in the morning to go to work and don’t get back until six or seven on most days of the week. This leaves me feeling exhausted,

Don’t Let Anyone’s Criticism or Judgment Define Who You Are

“There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally.” ~Don Miguel Ruiz

I was a chunky, shy little girl who was attached to my mom’s leg. She was my protector and served as a source of unconditional love.

As I left my mom’s side and went off to school, I encountered many new faces that introduced me to criticism and judgment.

Being judged by your physical attributes as an adult, in a society that constantly strives for physical perfection,

The Power of Silence: Free Yourself from Painful Thoughts

20.09.2018 in Life Skills, Personal Development, Positive Thinking, Spirituality, Stress Management

By 

“Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at anytime and be yourself.” ~Hermann Hesse

As a child, I hated when someone told me to sit still and be quiet, and rightly so. I was young and full of energy; every minute of being still and silent was a minute of missing out on this magnificent life.

Then, as I grew older and entered into teenage and young adult years, it grew into a fear with a capital “F” of being still and silent; for as soon as I was quiet and still,

5 Reasons to Forgive Yourself and How to Do Better Going Forward

19.09.2018 in Empowerment, Healing, Health, Life Path, Life Skills, Positive Thinking, Superstitions

By 

“At the end of life, the wish to be forgiven is ultimately the chief desire of almost every human being. In refusing to wait; in extending forgiveness to others now; we begin the long journey of becoming the person who will be large enough, able enough and generous enough to receive, at the very end, that absolution ourselves.” ~David Whyte

The last time I saw my mother she was smiling and laughing at nothing in particular. My mother has had dementia for almost ten years now. Each visit brings an onslaught of guilt and uncomfortable feelings.

5 Reasons We All Deserve Forgiveness

12.09.2018 in Healing, Health, Life Skills, Personal Development, Positive Thinking, Stress Management

By 

“To forgive is somehow associated with saying that it is all right, that we accept the evil deed. But this is not forgiveness. Forgiveness means that you fill yourself with love and you radiate that love outward and refuse to hang onto the venom or hatred that was engendered by the behaviors that caused the wounds.” ~Wayne Dyer

When we have been deeply hurt or betrayed by a friend, loved one, or even an acquaintance, it can be incredibly difficult to let it go and forgive them. Some acts seem almost unforgivable,

Letting Go of Attachment: From A to Zen

07.09.2018 in Empowerment, Gratitude, Healing, Health, Life Path, Life Skills, Personal Development, Positive Thinking

By 

“Most of our troubles are due to our passionate desire for and attachment to things that we misapprehend as enduring entities.” ~Dalai Lama

If there’s one thing we all have in common, it’s that we want to feel happy; and on the other side of that coin, we want to avoid hurting. Yet we consistently put ourselves in situations that set us up for pain.

We pin our happiness to people, circumstances, and things and hold onto them for dear life. We stress about the possibility of losing them when something seems amiss.
