“You write in order to change the world, knowing perfectly well that you probably can’t, but also knowing that literature is indispensable to the world… The world changes according to the way people see it, and if you alter, even but a millimeter the way people look at reality, then you can change it. ― James Baldwin
The platforms we use for sharing our writing are rapidly and constantly evolving and improving. There is a myriad of tools to help us improve our productivity, which is in itself becoming a detriment to producing meaningful work.
As a writer, I struggle…
“How bad do you want it?” — Gary Vaynershuk
Last year, I read a phenomenal book whose insights I want to share today: Rich Habits — The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals: Thomas C. Corley
If you really want to change your life as a result of reading a profound book, it is important that you practise what you learned. Take action.
I have acted upon most principles I garnered from this book, and my life has fully been transformed. I am more physically fit, I have better mental health, my relationships have improved, I feel more spiritual, and…
If you chase two rabbits, you will catch neither one.
We all have goals in life. Some have less of them, some have more of them. I had quite a number of goals and multiple areas of my life that I wanted to improve.
I wanted to up my daily hours of sleep from 3 to at least 6, meditate twice a day, go to the gym six days a week, create mental health awareness videos on YouTube, spend more time with my family; all the while working a full-time job.
The challenge I found is that even when I…
I fell in love like you would fall asleep: slowly and then all at once.” — John Green
In a world that is advancing so rapidly, the virtue of patience is often disregarded in almost everything. We want our food at our doorsteps within 10 minutes after we place the order, we want our dopamine rush constantly so we keep our eyes glued to our screens in search of the next hit.
We want to fall madly in love two days after we swiped right on an app.
When I was a teenager, my mother gave me life advice that…
“And all those “and they lived happily ever after” fairy tale endings need to be changed to “and they began the hard work of making their relationships happy.” — Linda Miles
This weekend exactly three years ago, my friend David called me. He had an enthusiastic tone in his voice. “I want you to meet Lizzie, she is the most incredible woman I’ve ever met. Let’s meet tomorrow at Nando’s at 3:00 p.m. and I will introduce you to her.
It was evident he was head over heels in love with her. Initially, I was slightly skeptical, as I thought…
Love is great. Love is necessary. Love is beautiful. But love is not enough. — Mark Manson
“Today, I am going to share a truth many people do not know — love is not the most important aspect of a happy relationship!” Wilson announced.
My friend, Wilson, recently got married to the love of his life, so this announcement was perplexing to me. He was, however, clearly excited about what he was about to tell me.
At the beginning of the conversation, I was very skeptical as I have thought for the longest time that nothing surpasses love in any…
Being in love is an amazing feeling. It can be exhilarating and give our hopes and dreams wings. George Sand said there is nothing better than to love and be loved.
I also want to add that there is nothing better than loving and being in love with someone and having those emotions fully reciprocated.
Do you know there is a difference between being in love with someone and loving them?
According to psychology, to love someone means to really care about that person, to be enamoured by them, and to really want to get to know them. …
“Being alive, and with someone you love is a special occasion. Live up your life.” — Lizzie Natesky
Choosing who we marry is one of the most important decisions we have to make in life. It influences our level of happiness, growth, and success, like no other choice.
I am at that point in my life where I know what I want when it comes to dating and relationships. I value honesty, compassion, loyalty, friendship, and companionship.
As I have grown older, appearance has ceased being a great priority for me. I mean, it plays its part but I value…
“This is my confession. As dark as I am, I will always find enough light to adore you to pieces, with all my pieces.” — Johnny Nguyen
I was once stuck in a terrible relationship that I convinced myself was not too bad. My partner seemingly loved me, he bought me flowers every other week, he took me on fancy dates and spent numerous hours speaking on the phone with me every night.
On the other hand, whenever he would be displeased about something, he would act out in extreme ways. He would sign into my social media accounts and…
I write about love, life, relationships, and dating. I've been in love before, had my heart broken, picked up the pieces and now found true love. Let's connect!
