    Wednesday Wisdom

    Muse: Yours Truly, ME Holding ourselves to high standards comes naturally to us as human, we usually just grow up to have expectations from ourselves and if we fail to meet up with them, we get frustrated. I know I have done this before, and, at the risk of appearing like a defeatist, I know I will do it at some point again (and trust me, I won’t let go without a fight but at the same time I know when to take a bow if it starts to drain me).

But I’ll like to run through some blunt facts we avoid as humans because they don’t usually sound like what we want to hear, but, they hold the key to inner peace and happiness. ‘Feeling good about life’ is just at the other end of being convinced about these thoughts; 1.

Detoxify often: Some people will literally not be able to afford some airlines because of the baggage they pack along (sarcasm), please learn to travel light. It is unfair on the future if you drag along toxins from your past into it. All those things that you think about too much but still won’t change, drop them. Cut…

    The Positive Mindset

    One of the most popular or familiar concepts is “The Power of Positive Thinking”, and sometimes it can feel a little clichĂ©. But, being an optimist can be hard for some people and sometimes you just don’t know where to start with being positive. Personally, I’m a pollyannish optimist by nature who sometimes need courage to even get through some days, so, I’m not going to make it sound like it’s always easy to maintain an attitude of positive thinking. Below are some pointers which you may find useful; Identify : First you really need to identify why you have a negative mindset about any situation? What thoughts do you…
