Mirrors

Gary John Bishop is a writer and personal development focused leader. Watching him speak, I heard something that made me really stop and think.  “If all your relationships are a reflection of you, how well are you doing?” Oh ok, FINE GARY!

Fear & Loathing – In Ourselves

Media, social media and popular culture are a perfect storm to create feelings of inadequacy, in even the most secure of individuals.

Let Yourself Be Loved

Sometimes we look at couples and say “they are just MADE for each other” or “they are gonna be together forever” … and others we seem to think “they won’t last” or “they don’t seem truly happy” – but none of us can ever really know for sure. Sometimes the ones that seem so unlikely […]
