Your Greatest Self

Hey Readers, it’s a holiday today here in Canada, but here’s an old post you may not have ever read. It’s about how self esteem and love for the universe are the same thing. Feel good about yourself. Give it a read and I’ll see you tomorrow. Have a wonderful day!

Other Perspectives #52 The Sequel

2016’s Blog of the Year

1064-16boy-relax-and-succeed-the-best-is-yet-to-comeYou have wonderful taste. This is the perfect choice for after what a lot of people feel was a tough year. When a friend did a survey of young kids in a school recently, their view of the future was startlingly bleak and negative. And then we thought about it and we realised; we did that. The adults. They learned that from us and they can learn something better.

2016’s Blog of the Year #2

1062-16boy2-relax-and-succeed-drop-reactions-and-allow-moreThe two biggest posts this year really stood out, and this first one is another excellent choice about living in ego versus living in an open, aware state. With an ego there is what you think about the world and the real you lives in and sees the real world. The difference is how your day can feel great or terrible, so without further ado I give you:

2016’s Blog of the Year #3

1061-16boy3-relax-and-succeed-the-more-you-love-yourselfIt’s just my opinion, but this year people got behind what I feel are maybe the best collection of year-end winners yet, and this one on relationships is no exception. The remaining question I have about this winner is, who made it so popular, the victims or the perpetrators? As it notes, relationships “…aren’t about keeping other people out, they’re near-constant invitations to be in.” Indeed. Without further ado, I give you:
