Hello there! I want to talk about taking action today. Why? Because it has been the major way for me to get over many things, especially in recent months. I am an overthinker (why do you think I am writing on this blog lol). I am also not good at multitasking. When you combine these … More Action!
As an empath, I believe in second chances. Life can be difficult at times and can cause people to act out of character. No one is perfect. I always try to find the good in people. This is why I believe in second and even third chances. Encouraging someone to pursue growth and even helping … More Getting Away With Murder
Hello! You know how often we talk about the food we eat and how it affects our body. What we put inside affects the way our body functions. I agree with that. But I agree with more: what we put in our minds affects our soul (or psyche). Here is what I mean. Let’s say … More Food for Soul
Hello! Today’s topic is blessings. Everyone one of us have things we can be grateful for. Some of those things are so ordinary that we may not even see them as blessings.

Hi everyone! This week’s topic is change of opinions. This came out of a discussion with my friend this past week.

The great resignation of 2021 has been a huge headline this year. After millions of people lost their jobs in 2020, this year we saw millions of employees voluntarily leave their jobs. Here’s my hot take—employers can’t fight this. If somebody isn’t willing, you can’t coerce them to be willing. Even if you do, that willingness won’t be sustainable. … More Work With The Willing: A rule of thumb for human capital management (and life)
Hello! As I said in a previous post, I have had some health issues in recent months, things that were kind of (thank God, not much) affecting my daily life without me realizing it much.

Hello everyone! Happy Sunday to all of you! I am at a cross-point of my life.

Hello everyone! How are you all? This week’s topic is patience. Why? Because I am not patient at all and I need to learn and I am, so I want to share my thoughts. I am naturally kind of impulsive and impatient. I want things to be done right away, even though they might need … More Are you patient?
