An expectation is a resentment under construction
At first, it didn't quite make sense to me. But then, one day, it hit me like a ton of bricks. I was drowning in pain, and it finally clicked that my expectations were at the root of all my resentments.
I had no idea, but these unmet expectations had been weighing me down, causing me frustration, pain and disappointment.
From that point forward, I made a conscious effort to let go of unrealistic expectations. I could embrace acceptance and gratitude (even begrudgingly) for what life had to…
A Simple Pivot
Today, I want to remind you of the incredible power that lies within a simple pivot.
Life has a funny way of throwing unexpected challenges our way. Sometimes, it may feel like we're stuck in a rut or facing a complete dead-end. But here's the beautiful truth: we can always pivot.
A pivot is like a strategic shift in direction. It's about recognizing when something isn't working and having the courage to make a change. It doesn't have to be a grand, sweeping transformation... even a little t…

I can't even imagine what that must have been like... for him or for his son...

Busy Isn't Better
In our fast-paced modern world, it's no surprise that many of us feel constantly busy. But here's the thing: being busy doesn't automatically mean being productive.
It's all too easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of activity, only to realize that we haven't actually made any meaningful progress. We lose sight of the bigger picture and find ourselves stuck in a cycle of 'busyness' without true accomplishment.
But fear not, my friend, because there's a way out of this trap. It starts with bein…
Disease To Please
Do you have the urge to help others, even when it costs you your time, your energy, your money...?
