Soul Age

I just stumbled over this quick, but interesting test: How Old Is Your Soul Test

It turns out, I am a mature soul. And honestly as I read the short discription, I wasn’t even surprised:

“Like adults creating families, Mature Souls seek to create interpersonal harmony between themselves and others. Unlike Young Souls, Mature Souls are rarely ambitious or motivated by wealth and status, but instead they are driven by sensitivity and the desire to live an authentic life. If you’re a Mature Soul, you are a self-aware, empathetic and highly diplomatic person.”

Of course I had to dig deeper into that and found this: 11 Signs You’re A Mature Soul

And basically everything mentioned is SO like me, it’s almost scary!



2015 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 250 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

The Things You Can’t Change: Redefining Differences & Challenges

This speaks from the bottom of my heart. Living myself with (at the moment) 3 autoimmune diseases for years (not to say decades), that’s exactly how I try to live my life. Concentrating on the diseases, the medication and the pain or the adverse effects won’t change anything about it but would restrict my life or affect it to the negative. So I’m trying to make the best out of every day! Like Madison said: What does not kill you, makes you stronger!

The Things You Can’t Change: Redefining Differences & Challenges

Ever wonder what it would be like to have a health condition that is in cure-able? As hard as it may be at the time, colds and flus come and go (thankfully), but there are many things in life- let alone health conditions that can never go away or change.

There are some things we just simply cannot change- from our genetics, to losing loved ones, to the country we were born in, the family we were born into, and for me it’s a health condition called Cystic Fibrosis (CF).

Cystic Fibrosis is a condition that affects the lungs and the digestive system. This means that my lungs build up infections more easily, and I therefore need to treat it with pysio therapy twice a day to prevent access build up…

Empaths: Coping With Sensitivity And Empathic Gifts

Check out this interesting article about Empaths:

That for example is very me:

They have a broad interest in music to suit their many expressive temperaments, and others can query how empaths can listen to one style of music, and within minutes, change to something entirely different.  Lyrics within a song can have adverse, powerful effects on empaths, especially if it is relevant to a recent experience.  In these moments, it is advisable for empaths to listen to music without lyrics, to avoid playing havoc with their emotions!

are you beautiful? I asked 100 men what ‘physical beauty’ is and the results shocked me

Rozanne Leigh

Tina Fey said it best in her book, ‘Bossy Pants’:

 “But I think the first real change in women’s body image came when JLo turned it butt-style. That was the first time that having a large-scale situation in the back was part of mainstream American beauty.
Girls wanted butts now.
Men were free to admit that they had always enjoyed them.
And then, what felt like moments later, boom—Beyoncé brought the leg meat. A back porch and thick muscular legs were now widely admired.
And from that day forward, women embraced their diversity and realized that all shapes and sizes are beautiful.
Ah ha ha. No. I’m totally messing with you.
All Beyonce and JLo have done is add to the laundry list of attributes women must have to qualify as beautiful.

Now every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose…

Who’s directing your movie?

Madison MacGregor

Our life is like a movie, and each of us are the main characters of our own movies.

This movie can be beautifully tragic, it can be happy, hilarious, or anything in-between. The thing is, you are living in this movie, you are the main character, but who is the one directing this movie?

When we are born, the directors of our movie are our parents, teachers, friends, family, and society (which includes the media). We agree with and believe everything they tell us, meaning their beliefs become our own beleifs.This is because as children, we don’t have the AWARENESS that we can direct our movie.

Society is constantly telling us what we must be in order to be enough. We are told that we need to fit an image,   and that we will be good enough once we fit this image. We can choose to agree with what…

As the great Maya Angelou said, “People will forget what you’ve said, they will forget what you did, but they will NEVER forget how you made them feel.

There is a universal language that is beyond words, pictures, and all materialistic and objective things. It is a language that all living things understand…it is the language of the heart.

How we communicate is from one heart to another. When we communicate from our hearts instead of our minds we feed our souls and enhance our lives, and the lives of others, beyond measure.

My sisters, Ava and Elle, are the greatest examples of love in my life. Every morning they wake up with a huge smile on their faces, singing away, regardless of how they feel, how late they stayed up the night before, or how much they had to do that day, they always greet me with loving words.

I recently went shopping and saw a shirt in a store that read, “Good things come to those who hustle”. 

It feels like hustling is the new “thing.”  We see this being modelled everywhere from the commercials we watch to the books we read. We are conditioned to believe that hustling equals our self-worth and the busier we are and the more we hustle, the greater our self-worth.

We are not born to HUSTLE all the time…to constantly be moving, frantically, busy doing STUFF.

We need to have balance.

Think about the times you feel the most at peace. It isn’t when you are cut for time and struggling to get something finished. You probably feel more peaceful when you take a much needed vacation; laying in the beautiful hot sun and relaxing. Fully present in the moment and happy. This is your true nature…and for this reason our culture LOVES vacations…

Screen Shot 2015-02-03 at 10.43.22 PM My elementary school picture circa 2007

During my entire elementary school education (kindergarten-grade four) I was bullied by classmates I considered my friends. As painful as it was at the time, I am grateful for what I have learned, especially the power and importance of FORGIVENESS.

These “bullies” ended up being some of my friends, and my greatest teachers as a young child. We all “make mistakes” from time to time…but we must learn to understand and forgive ourselves and others for what has happened, knowing that what happened may not have been right, but that it is in the past and it’s behind us.

We have a choice to let go or hold on to our past; whether it is a small conflict, or a major life-changing event. We need to recognize that we can’t change our past. As Oprah says: “Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the…
