Your well-being should be your priority, and working too much might hamper your happiness. Our consumerist society often leads us to reverse our priorities in ways that can seriously affect our quality of life and our physical, mental, and emotional health. Ultimately, our happiness. With an increasing rhythm of life, inflation, and bills piling up, we are more and more concerned about working, earning a … Continue reading How Working Too Much Hampers Your Happiness
Intuition has always been a fascinating subject of study. It is generally associated with genius, because the greatest scientific discoveries happened thanks to moments of intuition. Einstein wrote: Intuition is a sacred gift of which reason is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and forgets the gift. In addition, we all know that it is thanks to our intuition … Continue reading The Power of Intuition

-Previously posted on Snippets of SnapDragon– So I sat down with amateur blogger SnapDragon X., to ask her a thing or two about life. She wore an over-sized teal dress/shirt thing, which she said seems to have become her unofficial uniform as of late. Her polka-dotted leggings undoubtedly completed the Practical-Mom outfit. Plus, there may or may not have been a smear of child-snot on … Continue reading SnapDragon Speaks: On Herself.
There are many things I do not know. Like what it takes to make a light switch work; or how many species of bird reside in my home state. I do not know advanced mathematic formulas; I do not know why the daffodils come back each spring. I’m just one person, with a single, yet unbelievable brain. Yet there is limited capacity. And I mess … Continue reading SnapDragon Speaks: On Knowing.
Greetings, Dear Reader! The SnapDragon Family is currently on the road, seeing some sights during this all-too-depressing season of lockdown during winter in Pennsylvania. (starts shivering, and hides head beneath a blanket) We’re cozied up in our Berkshire Class-A RV, embracing the open road and relishing the chance to travel to the American southeast. Sure it’s just us three—we’re still in a pandemic, mind you—but … Continue reading SnapDragon Speaks: On All I Need.
Hi all, How was your week? I hope you all had a great week. I want to discuss the extras in our lives today. Our baggage in a sense. We hear discussion of minimalism and how to apply it every now and then. The less we own, the better we feel (as long as our basic needs are covered). This has some advantages: (i) there … Continue reading Everyday Baggage
I’m afraid of the dark. Like, for real. And it’s not because I think there are trolls in the basement, or Civil War ghosts in the attic. (But—ahem—now that I’ve revived that thought, I might crawl into bed even earlier tonight.) (pulls the blanket up to her chin) I’m afraid of my own mind. Because as soon as the sun sets, I feel an impending … Continue reading SnapDragon Speaks: On The Dark.
Hi all, How have you been? It has been a long time since we last interacted here! I missed you all! I took a long-ish break from writing but not from thinking. So, we will meet here regularly now to discuss what I have been thinking about. I want to discuss what it means to have internal peace today. I reflected on it and realized … Continue reading Internal Peace
Over the years I realized how different perspectives coming from different people can change our own perspective about everything, and, therefore, our life. The most important part is that we don’t even to know those people or directly interact with them, but we can interact with their perspective through their writings. Throughout my life, whenever I was in a tough place, the only thing that … Continue reading Top 5 Books That Changed My Mindset
Fresh Face, 2020. Original Photo by SnapDragon X. All rights reserved. It’s Monday again. It’s ice cold here in my corner of the world. It’s the perfect day to stay in bed, sip a mug of steamy goodness, and let laziness lead the way. But there are many things to do. As I look in the mirror, I see wrinkles. Weary eyes. Chapped lips. I … Continue reading SnapDragon Speaks: On The Get Up.
Hello, Dear Reader. It’s nice to see you again. I’m still here. I’m still SnapDragon, but now I’m a mom! (gasp!) Our little boy came ten weeks early, and while it’s been an insanely stressful adventure, I’m happy to report he’s doing well. He’s our little champ, getting stronger every day. And so, in this new year and new journey into motherhood, I’m assessing all … Continue reading SnapDragon Speaks: On Being Lost & Found.
I’m a bit under the weather, friends. My apologies for both a delayed and limited post. But I’m listening to my body; she’s talking to me. She needs rest. She needs warmth. She needs time. I wish you and yours a comforting weekend. All of my love, SnapDragon Continue reading SnapDragon Speaks: On Listening.
Hi everyone, I have been writing on the cognitive and emotional side of our stories of our own lives on my blog recently. So, I thought why not discuss it here. The idea is that the mind and the heart tend to differ how they perceive the outside world. When the perception is through the mind, it goes through the filter of logic. What is … Continue reading Decision-Making: Logic or Emotions?
Hi everyone, I want to talk about study/work habits today because I just came out of a heavy study period as of yesterday and I noticed certain things that changed. We all strive for efficiency at work. The goal is to maximize the outcome and minimize the effort without cutting down on the results. If we can achieve the same result with less effort, why … Continue reading Concentrate, but How?
