Feel Your Feelings

Be Inspired..!!

We, as humans, seek safety. We yearn for security. Our same-old, same-old routine frequently becomes our safety and comfort. It may appear easier at times to operate on autopilot, with no awareness of our internal experience. It’s natural and adaptive to want to avoid things that make us uncomfortable.

It’s never too late to decide you’re ready to listen in! If emotional avoidance resonates with you, see if you can approach it with curiosity and non-judgment. This newfound awareness gives you an excellent opportunity to create something new and to transition into a more fulfilling way of being!

We would like to get rid…

Amor Fati and The Acceptance of What is Necessary — Pointless Overthinking

This idea of surrendering ourselves to something beyond our control is foreign to our natural inclinations as human beings. At our core we are meaning making creatures who tirelessly seek to rid the world of uncertainty, and have power over our natural environment.
