The Therapeutic Power of Listening and Speaking

By Troy Headrick I’d like to do something a bit different in this blog.  It’ll start with me posting a fascinating TED Talk by Leon Berg.  The title of his presentation is “The Power of Listening:  An Ancient Practice for Our Future.” By the way, before I tell you the true aim of this post,...

Brain-Storming 8

Situation: Peter has got a job offer in a country far from his home country. The job pays well and is a significant upgrade from his current job. He will have to stay there at least 5 years. The question that is bothering him is that he does not know anyone in that country and he... Continue Reading →

The World-Ruler

*Attention! This is going to be a brutal post!* From all the things we have in this world, there is one that rules them all (and no, it’s not the one ring). There is something that has the ability to control anything and anyone, if leveraged correctly. People tend to do anything for this, regardless... Continue Reading →

When on the Plane

Hi everyone, Today I want to talk about traveling again but the traveling time itself (for example, the time you spend in airports or on planes, in buses etc.) (If you want to read about the benefits of traveling to different destinations, check my post here). I am writing this post because I will travel... Continue Reading →

Brain-Storming 7

Situation: John retired two years ago. He did the job he loved for his whole life and his job gave meaning to his life. Without his job now, he is feeling empty. He feels he lost his life purpose. This feeling is making him think that he wants to go back to work. Now, he is... Continue Reading →

Thoughts Manager

Today’s a pretty rough day because I barely slept last night. And it’s not like I did anything… I only had a constant thought-flow with things that could go bad in my life (that and the fact that one of my cats made strange noises all night long). The thoughts were so bad that I... Continue Reading →

Mind vs Reality

Don’t worry, that “vs” is just for show. It’s not a battle, but there are differences, especially if we think about what “reality” really means. Have you ever searched for what Wikipedia says about reality? Here it is: “Reality is the sum or aggregate of all that is real or existent, as opposed to that which... Continue Reading →

Brain-Storming 6

Life Assess

When you think about your life, what thoughts come to you? What about when you think about life in general? What’s the difference between those two perspectives? I’m now wondering if the feelings I have when I consider the worst parts of my life are the same with other people’s feelings. There are people on... Continue Reading →

Unstructured Writing

I always thought a piece of written content must be structured in such a way that it looks nice and that has a logical form from top to bottom. But does that apply to all types of writings? Lately, I changed my mind and I think it doesn’t. Structured writing is very useful when you... Continue Reading →

The Art of Living

It’s been a looong time since I wrote something and I’m not even sure I know how to do it. Life is so unpredictable that if you try to understand it, your mind might explode. Actually, this is what happened to me. One year ago, I thought that all I can do is write for... Continue Reading →

Time Use

Hi everyone, Let’s talk about how we can best pass time. How can we make sure that our time is productive and also relaxing? My mornings are usually productive. I like getting up early. My afternoons are a bit lazy because I usually meet my friends in the afternoon. But I still can do work.... Continue Reading →

SnapDragon Speaks: On Listening.

I'm a bit under the weather, friends. My apologies for both a delayed and limited post. But I'm listening to my body; she's talking to me. She needs rest. She needs warmth. She needs time. I wish you and yours a comforting weekend. All of my love, SnapDragon

Giving Thanks: Blog One

By Troy Headrick If you read Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations, a book I’ve alluded to in at least one other piece, you’ll see that “Book 1” is a collection of acknowledgements and thank yous.  For example, Aurelius lists family members, friends, “the gods,” and others in this opening chapter.  He thanks each one of these individuals...
