Goals all Year Round

We are almost three quarters of the way done with 2023, let that sink in for a few minutes because honestly we are just about getting used to putting the year correctly on forms! As the year winds down every year, the hot topic is making or setting goals. We eagerly jot down a list of ambitious resolutions that often fizzle a month in, but it’s a time honored tradition that provides a sense of optimism and renewal. While the intention is undoubtedly positive, the concept of limiting goal setting to a single period in the year is really counterproductive.


Toxic Relationships

Navigating personal relationships is an integral part of the human experience. Unfortunately, not all relationships are beneficial or nurturing. Some can be overwhelmingly negative, introducing harmful patterns into your life, often referred to as toxic relationships. In this blog we help identify what a toxic relationship looks like and tips on how to successfully walk away from toxic people in your life.


It’s a Barbie World

In all fairness, your writer has not seen the Barbie Movie yet dear readers, so there will be no spoilers! Even if you never played with a Barbie, you have certainly heard of her and seen a few hundred dolls on the shelves over the years. She is iconic and currently stars in one of the top grossing movies at the moment. Her history spans over six decades and she has become an interesting role model in recent years offering lessons in self-empowerment, inclusivity, and resilience.


Loving Life

In life, it is not enough to merely survive, we should work towards thriving and flourishing. Survival should be our baseline, thriving our goal. There is a world of difference between the two. Surviving means just getting by, handling life's challenges as they come, whereas thriving is about growing and flourishing, navigating those same challenges with grace, learning from them, and becoming better. In this blog we explore the transition from surviving to thriving, the key elements of thriving, and how you can foster these steps into your life.


Thriving in spite of hardship

Life is an unpredictable journey. There are high peaks of joy and often deep valleys of hardships. It is during these low moments that our resilience is tested. We want the highs and would do almost anything to avoid feeling the lows. We run from feelings of sadness, depression, anxiety, and grief…. Navigating through these low points may seem impossible, a lot like trying to walk through mud up a hill. It may seem impossible, but with the right approach and mindset, you can not only survive these low points, but grow from the experience.
