A Messy Reflection from Yours Truly. . . . Greetings from my warm, bird-chirping corner of the globe, Dear Reader. I’m in my bare feet, I have a tall iced coffee within reach, and approximately half an hour or so of solitude. Here I am. And, simply put, I’m a mess. Top-knot hairdo. Disheveled clothes. Toenails that could use a precise and careful trimming. Our … Continue reading SnapDragon Speaks: On Wrinkles & Dish Soap.
Hi everyone, I thought maybe talking about human connection is a good topic for today because why not. We might at times feel like connecting with people is a waste of time. ‘Oh, if we meet, we will talk for an hour. I’d rather do this work’ or ‘I won’t call my mom. I will sleep.’ We might think of or say things like this. … Continue reading Side Benefits of Friendship
Hi all, I have been MIA for most of the recent months but I missed you all! How is everyone doing? I hope every one of you is feeling great and is enjoying this beautiful day! The reason I was absent was due to some major problems in my personal life. I probably had some of the hardest weeks I had but now I started … Continue reading Learning by Experience
We all honor our own innate ideals of happiness. Our conception of “the good life.” Composing and recomposing our lives around this archetype of euphoria. But that’s the thing. Continue reading Different Definitions of Happiness: A reflection.
“When you accept yourself, the whole world accepts you.” Easier said than done, right? To love yourself at the current moment is complex enough, but what about who you used to be? What about the parts of yourself you aren’t proud of? What about the tedious pieces which still need tending to? To truly love yourself, you must accept the unrecognizable part of yourself as … Continue reading How to Love the Unrecognizable Part of Yourself
Hi. SnapDragon here. It’s been awhile. And who knows why, really. I mean, I do have a toddler. I tend to the house and home. I technically work full-time, although it’s more like a part-time, online gig at the moment. (No complaints. But it still takes up minutes of my day.) And by the time I have an hour to myself–with a cat or two … Continue reading SnapDragon Speaks: On Thought-Jelly.
By E.L. Jayne Our interconnectedness and reliance on other human beings is taken for granted lately. It seems as if people only want to surround themselves with other like-minded people. This is profoundly dangerous. Continue reading How a Pencil Proves our Indisputable Interconnectedness
Hi everyone, I want to talk about motivation today. I had a few conversations lately about how we can motivate ourselves and maybe also others. It is an important topic, right? I think I am not shy to make changes in my life. I actually enjoy it very much and too much stability in one place kind of scares me. I think the way I … Continue reading Motivation
Hello everyone, We are in the last week of 2020. What a year it has been! From its conception till now, event after event, shock after shock. This extremity is why I think we need to reflect even harder on how this year has been for each of us individually. This is what I want to do in this post. Here is my reflection. PS: … Continue reading Reflections
Hi everyone, I have recently got into breathing exercises and breathing meditation again. Why? Honestly, I have no idea. One day, I woke up and something told me that I had to start that again that day. I had no choice but listen to it and I am glad I did. I was not feeling bad those days but there was some uneasiness in me … Continue reading Breathing

Provided by Marushka from Skeleton At The Feast There are many good arguments on behalf of contentment. I am in fact completely in favor of contentment, so if you find yourself at peace with your life please don’t read any further – because today I make the case for a creature called Dissatisfaction. What is this beast? I often catch it prowling around my thoughts. It … Continue reading Dissatisfaction: A User’s Guide
Provided by ellieejay My first international class in Guatemala, followed by a semester in London, then a semester in Granada… and what do I have to say for myself? I’ve learned nothing. Contrary to popular belief and folktales told by previous students who have studied internationally, living abroad for 5 months does not make you a world expert or even a world traveler. Needless to … Continue reading I’ve Studied Abroad 3 Times & I’ve Learned Nothing
It’s That Simple Life is so simple and beautiful. More than anything, it so magical and alive. I can see it dancing everywhere around me in the form of my surroundings. A few minutes earlier, I was sitting in my balcony. Luckily, my head slowly tilted upwards as I looked into the sky to watch the clouds. Their beauty left me speechless. They were so alive, so … Continue reading Life Is The Dancer And We Are The Dance
One of my most interested fields in psychology is that of dating and understanding how to find and interact with our romantic partner. There is no doubt that if you are in a relationship or married, that you haven’t been through some sort of emotional or mental rollercoaster with your partner. That’s just part of the process, and more often than not, we resolve whatever … Continue reading The Most Important Thing(s) To Understand About Your Relationship
‘A Lion used to prowl about a field in which Four Oxen used to dwell. Many a time he tried to attack them; but whenever he came near they turned their tails to one another, so that whichever way he approached them he was met by the horns of one of them. At last, however, they fell a-quarrelling among themselves, and each went off to … Continue reading Together Is Better
In our post industrial, feminist world, its not as clear a it used to be what a man is or what he should be. We live in a world, in which feminist groups often associate man’s masculinity with ‘tyranny’ and as a result believe in degrading men’s masculinity. Centuries ago, a mans duty was power and protection. Decades ago, it was to work and provide. … Continue reading How To Be An Attractive Man
It’s 2019 and for the most part, people have already made their head up about the new-years resolutions and goals they are going to get after this year. And that’s exactly why I feel like I need to put up my finger and say something… Something I feel like needs to be known by people before they decide to hit the gym six times a … Continue reading Forget Your Goals. Try This Instead…
Oh wait, you already saw it… I don’t know what I’m going to write today! I just wished to write something different. I was bored of do-this-do-that stuff.Even my homepage is full of stories I don’t want to read. Right now, a beautiful and soothing meditation music is playing behind me. I’m not feeling charged today. But I am feeling inspired. And with the above sentence, … Continue reading The Story Without A Title
We are often told to act in alignment to what we feel. How we feel. For whom we feel. This notion of acting in alignment with our feelings can be a dangerous mindset. In fact, allow me to tell you that your feelings are completley overrated. They are unimportant. Look, there are only 2 reasons to do things in life. Because it feels good Because … Continue reading Your Feelings Are Overrated.
