    Self Confidence! (Guest Post)

    EE Cummings wrote that “Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit”… These words resonate well with exactly what Self Esteem is and why it’s important for an individual to possess.   Brief explanation what is self confidence?   In her book The Portable Therapist (1992), Susanna McMahon explains that self-confidence is “a way of being in the world that allows you to know yourself and to take care of yourself.” Mary Welford (2013) says that it’s about being aware of when we’re struggling and having the strength to commit to doing something about it.

    Who Controls Your Life – You or Your Desires?

    Coming from a person that struggles with an addictive personality, I know how all-consuming it can be to be constantly chasing that next high. Sometimes that high can be in the form of a new romance emotionally or sexually, an exciting adventure, that fourth cup of coffee in the day, greater fame, more money and of course addictive substances such as drugs or alcohol. So what do I mean when I ask, “Who’s controlling your life, you or your desires?”. Well, when your desires have taken the wheel in your life things tend to become more compulsive. Your inner voice may be telling you things like, “I have to find…

    The Mindset Of A Millionaire (Guest Post)

    Growing up as a child, mind I was strange yet fascinating. I have always love numbers and money. I grew up in isolation from the world as a kid and focused half of my life on social media. This is what made me who I am today, an entrepreneur. I see numbers on every object and how I can profit on every item I see. My mind was strange. I would think day and night, listen to podcasts, and browse motivational videos. Am I a millionaire yet? No. Do I see myself as one? Yes. I will carry that spark of fire in me until the end. (motivation) As an…

    Momiji Manjū, A Lovely Japanese Gift

    By Derrick Theys This little Japanese cake is called a momiji manjū. It is made of buckwheat and rice, and comes with a variety of fillings, like red bean, custard, or chocolate. We bought a pack of momiji manjū on the island of Miyajima, in the bay of Hiroshima, where it is a speciality and a popular souvenir. They’re soft, spongy and delicious. Many of the cake shops have the machine that makes them right there in the window. A batter is poured into a hot maple-leaf shaped mold, a blob of filling is squeezed into the middle, and the mechanical arm folds the mold over to close it up.…

    What A National Tragedy Can Teach Us About The Power Of Choice

    By Tiffany Wright Last April marked the 20th anniversary for the Columbine High School massacre in Colorado. I know, I’m a bit late when I mention Columbine. However, after feeding my morbid curiosity by researching the lives behind the two school shooters – and their motives – I came to believe we can all learn a lesson about the power of choice. One of the shooters, Eric Harris, started a journal one year before the massacre. I found some excerpts here from Eric’s now-defunct blog where he rants about everything that irks him. If I didn’t know who wrote them, I would’ve passed it for the absurd tirades of a…
