What You Can Learn from my Bout of Writer’s Block

I’m not good enough. Who am I to do this work? What if no one wants to hear what I have to say? This is the exact inner dialog that kept me stuck in the illusion commonly known as writer’s block. As a result, creating content for my business was pushed to the bottom of […]

Too many obstacles?

Yesterday, I was taking a walk when I noticed something. On two separate occasions, my path was almost completely blocked by obstacles.

why you may be struggling to ask the universe for what you want

When we wish to manifest something, it’s important that we understand our needs, wants, and desires. This isn’t as difficult as it sounds.

Is it time to stop taking life so seriously?

While some people may choose to view blindness as a tragedy and pity me, I choose to make light of it when the opportunity presents itself. For example, there were a few times that I was talking to someone, and that person left the room without telling me. I kept talking until I realized that […]

In our society, there is this idea that we have to take on as many tasks and obligations as possible, preferably without anyone’s help.
