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.


Living life to the fullest

From a mental health perspective, living life to the fullest means striving for mental health well-being and personal growth, while consciously managing and coping with life's many stresses and challenges.


Never Being Good Enough

Do you ever scroll through social media feeling like you will never measure up to these flawless people and their perfectly curated lives? You will never be as thin, as great as a parent, will never love your spouse or parent the way these people seem to? How do they get their houses so clean, their hair so great and where do they find time to exercise so much, travel and read so many books?
