15 Powerful Beliefs that Will Free You from Negativity

sea_contemplation

By Marc and Angel

When I was a teenager I was the primary target of an extremely persistent bully at my high school.  One day I came home in tears and wrote this on the whiteboard hanging on my bedroom wall:  “I hate bullies. They make me feel like a loser.”

The next day, while I was at school, my grandmother erased what I wrote on the whiteboard and replaced it with this:  “An entire body of water the size of the Pacific Ocean can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship.  Similarly, all the negativity in the world can’t bring you down unless you allow it to get inside your head.”

And from that day forward I felt better.  I made a conscious decision to stop letting the bully get inside my head.  I changed my beliefs about his level of importance in my life.

10 Obvious Truths We Tend to Ignore

truths

We often tend to ignore or forget, for whatever reason, important lessons that life has taught us. Most of the following 10 truths are obvious, but some of us often forget them, while others haven’t even noticed them yet. No matter how hard we try to ignore it, the truth is still out there!

1. Surrounding yourself with the right people could be vital.

Have you been with someone who makes you feel emotionally drained? Someone who doesn’t support  you, respects you only when you live their way, makes you feel unattractive etc.? In general, people who make you feel uncomfortable and around whom you can’t be yourself. You have to learn to let go of such people because you will only be as great as the people you surround yourself with. There is no point of investing time and energy in such relationships. Instead, try building connections with people who inspire you to be the best version of yourself and charge you with positive energy.

With sales expecting to reach $30 million by the end of the year, the Canada Goose jacket has earned its respected reputation in the winter attire industry.

When You’re In A Good Relationship, You Learn These 10 Things

kissing-couple

I’d had serious relationships before meeting my fiance, with a couple lasting for years. I thought I was an adult; I thought I knew how to be a great girlfriend. Meeting someone I had a serious connection with taught me that nothing I had experienced before was real. True love feels different than casual relationships – even if those relationships lasted for years (often well past their expiration date!). When you’re in a good relationship, you learn things. You act differently; you think as part of a team, not as an individual making your way through the world. You’ll be more understanding and accepting of your partner, instead of just getting frustrated with them like you may have with past relationships.

7 Things to Remind You of Your Worth When in Doubt

in-doubt

Many people are quietly suffering of feelings of worthlessness and failure. They just don’t know what to do about it and how to help themselves. Fixing this problem isn’t impossible. In fact, it doesn’t take that much of an effort. Here are 7 things to help you restore your faith in yourself and realize how valuable you are:

1. Don’t believe everything you think. Sometimes, we tend to give our negative thoughts too much room in our heads. This results in sadness, depression and other negative mood states. We are only human and we all have such times in our lives. The thing to remember here is not to let your head fool you into believing everything that goes through it. Express your sadness, let it all go, but do not give too much power to your negative thoughts.

2. Everybody deserves love. When you are feeling sad, you might think that you don’t deserve anything or anyone. But the truth is, in times like that you deserve love and compassion more than ever. And the most important person you need love from is… yourself. Your love has the strongest power. The moment you start loving and respecting yourself, you will notice how drastically your life can change. Your love is the best gift you can give yourself.

21 Natural Alternatives to the Flu Shot

natural-medicine

The CDC recently admitted that this year’s flu shot likely won’t protect you from the flu, but did it ever? Though the CDC has issued a formal apology regarding the issue for this season, flu vaccinations have long been seen as ineffective by a horde of experts. But don’t worry – here you will find more than 20 natural flu remedies using natural antivirals.

No surprise here, but there won’t be any refund for insurance companies or patients who have already taken a flu vaccination early as preparation for the 2015 flu season in January and February, despite the CDC’s admission of its inefficacy.

At the end of its apology, though, the CDC says that there is a ‘cure’ for the flu, but it will cost you. GlaxoSmithKline and Roche will happily provide you with two anti-viral medications for patients who come down with the flu. So even if you don’t want to get the flu shot due to it being ineffective, Big Pharma will still gladly handle your case.

Why Do Our Best Friends Become Strangers?

best-friends

Do you have that one person you were once so close to -and for so long -that you are now basically nothing more than strangers with? Maybe you don’t know exactly what happened, as if things drifted slowly and although there is no “bad blood” things just don’t seem to work anymore. Strangers can become best friends just as easily as best friends can become strangers, it’s odd. But why does it happen?

We Change As People

I know I have experienced this a number of times in my life and maybe you have too. We have friends that we just can never picture ourselves not having close to us. We love them, they bond and connect so well with us, they are there for you and you are there for them. Then one day, as if out of nowhere, you realize they simply aren’t a big part of your life anymore.

The Beauty of Spending More Time Alone With Yourself

alone

“Inside myself is a place where I live all alone, and that’s where I renew my springs that never dry up.” ~ Pearl Buck

You know what I realized? That even though so many people don’t enjoy spending time alone with themselves, and even though so many people are willing to do whatever it takes to avoid solitude, it is in those moments when we are alone with ourselves that we can connect with the deep side of us. It is in those moments of silence and solitude that we can get in touch with that part of us that knows our real worth, the reason of our existence and what we are meant to do in this world.

There’s nothing frightening about spending time alone with yourself, nothing frightening about spending time alone in silence.
