Love and Magic: How Love Powers Creativity

Love and creativity go hand in hand. That’s why so many poems, songs, novels, and movies are centered around love. That’s why creative people are so often portrayed as “hopeless romantics” (it may be a stereotype, but there’s truth in a lot of stereotypes). But why is it that love and creativity have such a […]

Accepting Yourself

If I had a dime for every time I’ve heard something like, “You can do anything!” or “You’re more powerful than you think you are!” or “You are incredible just the way you are,” I’d be a very wealthy person. As someone who has always been interested in self-improvement and designing happiness, I’ve taken in […]

Designing your Ideology

If you want a happier life, you can’t stand by and wait for it to happen to you. You have to create it. You have to be proactive and deliberate, designing the life you want for yourself and taking steps to make your vision a reality. This can feel a little overwhelming, which is why […]

The Power of Simplicity, Clarity, and Action

One of the most frustrating feelings for me is the feeling of spinning my wheels. It’s those times when I know I’m working hard and I know I’m exhausted, and yet, I feel like I have nothing to show for it. To me, those times feel overly complicated and wholly unproductive. And the way to […]

The Power of Happiness: Being Safe, Free, and Supported

Everyone wants to be happy, but sometimes, we look at happiness the wrong way. Happiness isn’t a final destination or an end goal. Rather, it’s something you can have right now, and every day for the rest of your life. That’s important, because if you can find happiness now, you can start to harness the […]
