Why You May Be Addicted to Your Pain, And How to Overcome It.

Just like we can form an addiction to things outside of ourselves, we can also form an addiction to our pain. We can form an addiction to our sorrow, fears, and worry. Sometimes you may meet people, and every time that there is some type of negativity going on, they are always there. There are some people that are caught in the cycle of one negative relationship after another. Most of these people know that the negativity and the toxic relationships that they find themselves in may be bad...


Episode 53 - Listening To Your Intuition (Gut Instincts)

“People suffer when they chase a dream or a life that does not belong to them” – Caroline Myss “Look well into thyself; there is a source of strength which will always spring up if thou wilt always look. “― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, a stoic philosopher. Most of us have a perception of how our life is supposed to look like. We have an idea of how things ae supposed to be like in our life. However, the problem with that is that most of our perception of how our life is supposed to be is...


Episode 52 - The One Thing To Never Compromise On

“Love and peace of mind do protect us. They allow us to overcome the problems that life hands us. They teach us to survive… to live now… to have the courage to confront each day.” —Bernie Siegel The one thing that I have learned I will never compromise on is my peace of mind. When your mind is at peace, you can think your way out of almost every situation. When your mind is at peace, you fear less, you worry less, and you have less anxieties. You are able to have the room to be creative in...

Outliers - Choose to Stand Out (Repeat)

Outliers - Choose to Stand Out (Repeat) by YogaGirl_Izzy


The Scars the Opportunities Leave Behind

The Scars the Opportunities Leave Behind: I am an adherent of stoic philosophy. That means I believe inside every obstacle, lies an opportunity that serves as a reward for the one who persists through that obstacle. That is, for the one who permits him or herself as a vessel, the obstacle creates within that person virtues that couldn’t have been created otherwise. Virtues that are necessary to prepare that person for the life he or she has asked for. Picture a king who wants to test the...


Episode 45 - Owning and Standing in Your Own Truth

Standing in Your Own Truth: What is your story? What is your truth? At the very core of your being, who really are you? Do you stand in solidarity with the person that you are, even with your ‘flaws’ and ‘inperfections’ or do you stand with those who make it thier mission to judge your worthiness based on such ‘flaws’ and ‘inperfections.’ Are you proud of that which is true about you even if it does not meet the status quo? Are you conformatable in this skin that you are in? Do you look in...


Episode 44- My Message to your Life Guru

Marcus Aurelie said, “What is divine deserves our respect because it is good. What is human deserves our affection because it is like us. And our pity too, sometimes its inability to tell good from bad - as terrible a blindness as the kind that can’t tell white from black.” There are a lot of life guru’s out there. I have read some of thier books and proudly nodded and cried along to some of thier soul-awakening speaches. Recently i had the pleasure of receiving an e mail from a self...


Episode 43 -What We Really Persist For: it is not what you think.

WHAT WE REALLY PERSIST FOR: It is not What You Think. I cannot begin to tell you about the number of authors, many of whose works I have read or listened to, who offer their ultimate praises and worship to the quality of being persistence. Yes, persistence indeed can be "a great substitute for talent" - Steve Martin. There is no question about it, "Persistence guarantees that success is inevitable" - Yogananda. And indeed if "ambition is the key to success, persistence is the vehicle you...

Instead, my plan was to find a great paying job, get a roommate, and save every penny i could....


Episode 41 - Life Moves You Backwards To Catapult You Forward

"Life sometimes operates like a catapult. It drags you backwards with so much difficulties and tension when its about to launch you into a higher place" Just like a catapult, sometimes life moves us backwards in order to give us enough momentum and speed to move forward. Sometimes there are some "fires" that light up in our lives, but these fires are harmless. They have only come to renew our lands, and to limit the impact of others fires that will come into our lives that may be beyond our...
