The next time something triggers you emotionally, do this…

I love it when you can dip back to the ancient Greeks and pull out a bit of wisdom. Speaking on emotional intelligence (of course they didn’t call that back then) Aristotle had this to say about anger:  “Anyone can become angry – that is easy.

Storming the walls

From my art journal today…I’ve been reflecting on Roberto Assagiol’s Egg of Being model lately.

How can you be authentic in a heavily curated world?

the idea of being an authentic self is a key driver for me, yet sometimes i struggle to comprehend how we can be authentic in a world that is heavily curated and actively encourages us to be the ‘best version’ of ourselves. on the surface, there isn’t anything inherently wrong with wanting to be the best you you can be, it’s when we fall short of that, but don’t want the rest of the world to know we are lacking, …
