Never Indulge In Anger

Avoid it. There is nothing good about it. Anger is one of the most destructive emotions someone can experience. To act on this anger can be even more devastating. In order to find happiness, you must learn to control your emotions as well as your physical reactions. Lashing out because of resentment or irritation will only lead to more suffering.

The Secret to Enjoying Life

The Secret to Enjoying Life

It is important to understand that people manufacture their own happiness. It’s quite funny because the secret to enjoying life is that…there is no secret to enjoying life; no magic formula that you need to follow. You have to choose to be happy.

Tick-Tock

Tick-Tock

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Wow. I feel like a new man. Today marks the first day of the revival challenge and boy, am I excited. From here on out, I will be completing different 21 day challenges designed to foster self discovery. Each challenge will put my mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional limits to the test. My first challenge: going to the gym every day for 21 days. My goal is to develop a more positive image of myself. I want to feel healthy…

It’s nights like these where the feelings are unbearable. The knots in my stomach are so twisted. My hands become sweaty, my toes become cold, and my mind is racing from one topic to another – spewing out what ifs? a mile a minute. And I often then repeat the same wishful thoughts over and over as I search for answers and relief. When in the midst of these panicked emotions I am guilty of being impatient. I get annoyed…

Moving Forward: “The way to happiness: keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Fill your life with love. Scatter sunshine. Forget self, think of others. Do as you would be done by. Try this for a week and you will be surprised.”- H.C. Mattern
