The Unspoken Truth: Mental Health

Mental health. Ever said it out loud? What is it? By definition, mental health is “a level of psychological well-being, or an absence of mental illness. It is the “psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment”.” I bet you already know this. One of the most unspoken truths has to…

The Zig Zag Principle

We may be different people, given that no human being is like the other; but we all share a common goal: success. Success means different things to different people; some feel that having lots of wealth is being successful, some that having peace of mind is success, some that small but meaningful steps in the…

The Right Path.

How often do you regret past decisions? Or, do you ever sit down and wish that your life took a different path? The thing about life is that we often look at what happens in other people’s lives and somehow wish that ours were just like that. We imagine what things would be like if…

Being Woman.

The other day, I was talking to one of my friends about random things, and we started discussing modern day “dating” and how hard it really is being a woman. Have you ever had someone approach you and say that they have seen how you operate and feel that you are a perfect fit for…

Where Love Fails, Respect Prevails.

With just a few hours to the start of a brand new month, one with new chapters for most and a potential fresh start for some, I touch on the most important topic of all; RESPECT. Respect : “a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements” I…

Matters Education

As a keen observer of current affairs, I find it extremely hard to ignore situations wherein human rights are violated and thrown out the window. Over the past few months, I have noted with great concern the rising cases of school negligence when it comes to the health of the students. Remember the lady from…

The Company You Keep.

“Being a loner may seem like a tough choice to make, it may even sound a little crazy. But, it is better to walk alone, than to stand in the company of mediocrity.”

What’s Passed Is Past.

Have you ever sat down to think about your past and some of the things you have been through; and just say, “Thank God I don’t look a thing like what I have been through”? I do. Each and every single person on this planet has a story. And in the same way, each person’s…

First, Take Care Of Yourself.

When you think about it, is your glass half full or half empty? Or is it not even a glass, and what you have in your hand is a cup? I don’t know, I’m just trying to bring perspective into this. You see, over time, depending on how you were raised or basically who you…

Era Of The Crazies

There exists a very thin line between passion and obsession. Recently, I stumbled upon a television series by Tyler Perry, If Loving You Is Wrong; and while there are many other things to point out from this particular show, some that make me extremely uncomfortable with the whole show, there is one particular character that…

Another Win For The Ego.

Have you ever had one of those personal sessions where you analyse past desicions and actions, and wonder exactly why you chose to go through with them? Like why you are no longer friends with someone? Or why you love to talk ill of your exes, despite having had some pretty bright days together? Or…

The Art Of Contentment.

A few days ago, I wrote an article touching on depression, anxiety and other forms of mental unrest, wherein I shared my thoughts on what really triggers us to emotional and mental instability. The most obvious one being COMPARISON. In a world where social media dominates every single sector, it would be a lie for…

I Choose Happiness :)

  When we were younger, we were carefree; with absolutely no responsibilities besides performing well in school. A tiresome day was as a result of playing outside all day; or from being in school learning and playing. Basically, living. Enjoying ourselves. But we grow up; excited that we are finally eighteen and young adults; imagining that…

Strive To Be Compassionate.

I was at work yesterday and I decided to have one of those YouTube playlists playing in the background as I went about my business. Now, I am a true 90’s music fan so naturally that’s what I set it to. Somewhere in between I heard a very familiar song, “What Would You Do‘ by…
