This is me and my three close friends:) Hi everyone, I thought maybe talking about human connection is a good topic for today because why not.

"When you accept yourself, the whole world accepts you." Easier said than done, right? To love yourself at the current moment is complex enough, but what about who you used to be?

Hi everyone, Let’s talk about what we like about ourselves today. What side of our personality do we like best? What can we do well? We tend to see the negative aspects of us. We focus on what we cannot do, should not do, will not do etc. These have their places too. True, we... Continue Reading →
Hi all, Time management is important. I think we all agree on that. But I am getting the sense that maybe we are viewing this in a wrong way. For example, we see time as something to be ‘managed’, because we say ‘time management’. That gives the feeling to me that it is something and/or... Continue Reading →
Hi everyone, I hope everyone is having a good beginning of 2021. Today’s topic is challenges. Rather, how we behave when we face challenges. Life comes with some bumps on the road.

Hi everyone, I have recently got into breathing exercises and breathing meditation again. Why? Honestly, I have no idea. One day, I woke up and something told me that I had to start that again that day. I had no choice but listen to it and I am glad I did. I was not feeling... Continue Reading →
Hi all, How was your week? I hope you all had a great week. I want to discuss the extras in our lives today. Our baggage in a sense. We hear discussion of minimalism and how to apply it every now and then. The less we own, the better we feel (as long as our... Continue Reading →
Hi everyone, I am wondering if you have thought about what keeps us going in life. We all have our ups and downs. What motivates us to go up when we are down instead of just staying in the down? I noticed two things that help me with this: meaning and hope. And I often... Continue Reading →
Hi all, How have you been? It has been a long time since we last interacted here! I missed you all! I took a long-ish break from writing but not from thinking. So, we will meet here regularly now to discuss what I have been thinking about. I want to discuss what it means to... Continue Reading →
