Hidden Strength and Survival: A Path Forward (A Poem)

The ups and downs of life form part of the experiences that influence, shape and guide us. Challenges and disappointments — even the ones that set us adrift or scrambling for stable ground — can gift us the ability to learn and grow. What tests us the most often develops resiliency, strength and problem-solving skills that help us navigate our future.

Uplifting Emotional Health: Finding Your Way (Poem)

Emotional healing doesn't merely involve rest and/or thoughtful reflection. While it can sometimes look like self-care and self-love (or other nurturing activities); how we piece ourselves back together may equally involve things like confrontation, anger or silence before we can find a way forward.

Meadows: A Poem About Compassionate Love

Compassionate love doesn't shy away during challenge, sadness and struggle; in fact, it's during these moments that it reflects most true. Giving and receiving this kind of love, especially when times are tough can make a difference to our emotional well-being.

Affirmations That Can Improve Your Mindset

Our mindset consists of a set of established attitudes and beliefs that we use to make sense of the world around us; often helping to determine our place within it. What we internalize and allow to be reflected back is connected to how we deal with the ups and downs of life; which in turn is both influenced by, and dependent on how we perceive ourselves. In short, how we talk to ourselves matters.

Renewal: Reminding Ourselves About Growth (Poem)

The seasons and cycles of nature serve as a reminder that growth, rejuvenation and new beginnings will continue to arrive, blossom and bloom. It reveals to us that despite challenges and hardships, we can use the change we experience to emerge renewed; sometimes in ways we may not anticipate.

Promise Of A New Day

When we question where life is taking us or we feel adrift without direction, it can be overwhelming and set off bouts of anxiety and stress. This then feeds into everything we do and how we approach our day; sometimes wondering where our purpose lies.
