Are you asking the right questions?

I have a habit of asking myself and others questions about different life situations. When you ask the right questions, you get the right answers. That’s why most of my posts focus on a question.

The right questions are often the difficult questions. While this won’t be an easy process, it’s important to take stock of your answers. My objective is to get my readers to think deeply about their lives and the improvements that could be made. Highly sensitive people are predisposed to question themselves. The problem arises when we’re afraid to do so. (more…)

Do you desire a new life?

Do you desire a new life?

Desire leads us into new directions. Our thoughts can keep us stuck or can lead us in directions that we never thought were possible. Where are you? Are you happy with your lot in life? If so, bask in the sunshine of your happiness. Enjoy it and don’t take it for granted. If not, why not take the time to think about what you want?

Take a look at yourself on the inside and out. Where do you live? What job do you have? Do you have positive relationships with your friends and family? What interests do you pursue? What adventures do you have?

What do you truly want from life? Do you want wealth and success, happiness and peace of mind? Do you want a family and a yard, a yacht, or sports car? Where are you going? Do you have a particular goal or are you just wandering through life?

Is there too much waste in your life?

Due to my highly sensitive, conscientious nature, I find myself bothered when things seem inefficient and wasteful.  I wish I didn’t care so much about these things, but I can’t help but notice! Waste, whether time, money, or emotional energy, plagues us on both a macro (societal) and micro (personal) level.

We read about government excess and wonder why we are heavily taxed. If you think about our political system, politicians spend far more time and money campaigning than they do serving their constituents. I often get sticker shock when I hear of all the money raised in a particular competitive political race. (more…)

Is shyness something to overcome?

Shyness is a feeling of insecurity and extreme awkwardness around others. Who at some point in their lives hasn’t experienced this? It becomes a problem when it interferes with one’s day-to-day functioning. If shyness is a part of one’s being, it doesn’t have to be something that has to be overcome. It’s a trait that should be embraced and utilized.

Shyness isn’t some terrible obstacle. It’s not something that you cannot work with. I’m a shy person. I refuse to see my shyness as something to be ashamed of. I don’t look at my shyness as a negative character trait. The world may see shyness in a poor light, but it shouldn’t affect the way we see ourselves. If we feel good about ourselves, who cares what anyone else thinks? (more…)
