Less is more; the minimalist philosophy.

Many people seem to like a vast choice of everything. For example, things to wear. And I can relate to that dopamine hit of getting new things. It's fine to have new things, but in my opinion, it comes at a cost; The cost of time, energy and money, to name just a few. I [...]

One big way we seem to mess our kids up.

In my opinion, one big way people can and do, mess their kids up, is by not being aware of and integrating their own shadow parts of themselves. Shadow parts of ourselves, are the parts of us we reject, and don’t want. It could be anything, including negative feelings we don’t want like anger, sadness [...]

I don’t know what it’s like to be you, you don’t know what it’s like to be me.

There's so much I don't understand. I don't understand the mindset you'd have to be in to want a baby. Or the mind set you'd need to have, to kill someone or go to a prostitute, or to want to jump out of a plane for extreme sport, or what it's like to be schizophrenic, [...]

Schools are pumping out half-made humans.

It seems to me that the education system is too focused on making a living rather than making a life. There’s always exceptions of course, but generally speaking in at least the standard UK curriculum, schools aren’t incentivised at all to provide education to create well-rounded, happy, healthy, decent human beings. It’s not a priority. [...]

How I landed in depression by ignoring all the warning signs.

There were at least four warning signs in my life, that unbeknownst to me, were signalling depression on the horizon. If only I could have stopped to reflect on how I was feeling at the time, and sought help before things got really bad. But I didn’t listen to how I was feeling at all, [...]

What if Game of Thrones was a metaphor for today’s world?

In Game of Thrones, the different houses fight each other to get the throne, but instead they could be banding together to fight a much bigger threat: the white walkers. I think we're in a similar situation. We have all the political parties fighting for a seat in power and countries fighting each other for resources. [...]

Don’t ignore the ideology and attitude of the party you’re voting for: Promises can be broken.

Don’t focus so much on the policies that you ignore the ideology and attitude of the party you’re voting for. Once people are in power, policies can change and promises can be broken. But if you trust that the leader cares more about doing what’s right than saving face, I think that’s worth taking into [...]

Success defined by society: Keeping up with the Jones’

I think we should redefine the definition of success from monetary based to happiness. Would it be worth the risks to the economy? In my opinion it would, everyone would be happier generally, enjoy their lives more, have less regrets, follow their intuition more and we wouldn’t be destroying the planet. But society has heavily [...]

#Thedress that made the world talk (and fight) about seeing things differently.

“The dress is black and blue!” “No it’s white and gold, you’re wrong!” “No it IS black and blue!!! Can’t you see it?! It’s right there!" It’s fine to have fun arguing over #TheDress but people do the same thing all the time over things like religion, ideologies & opinions. We have a society where difference - such [...]

Acceptance = liberation

Sorry there’s been a lack of fuel from me recently, but now I’ve quit my job I’ll have more time to dedicate to this blog that I love so much! "If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have 3 options: 1. Remove yourself from the situation, 2. Change [...]
