Time Flies

Time Flies

Between the demands of work, the errands of daily life, and carving the space for our hobbies, families, and friends, hours blend into days and days into weeks. Between the rush toward the future and the weariness from the past, we’ll find ourselves in the present, albeit unaware of its existence.

The life we receive is not short; it is long. It’s only when we rush through it and are aimless about our days that it feels short. Time is not stingy with us; time is abundant. It’s only when we’re wasteful of it that it feels so limited.

The life we receive is not short, but we make it so, nor do we have any lack it, but are wasteful of it.

Slowing Down

Slowing Down

When we slow down and decide to live more intentionally, one day at a time, the weariness from overdoing and the anxious rush toward the future dissolve, gradually fading into the dark.

What happens to the question of “where did all the time go?”

It now ceases to exist.

Slow, Intentional Living: Inner Integrity and Coherency

Slow, Intentional Living: Inner Integrity and Coherency

Intentional living is about moving slowly, with purpose.

It’s a manifestation of our inner power, reminding us that we will always retain the strength to choose how to frame our days ahead.

It’s about living a life that’s true to you, measured by a pace of rhythm you choose for yourself. It’s about identifying values that matter most to you and then choosing to live in alignment with them.

 It’s about creating a space measured by the balance of what you believe in, what you’re interested in, what smothers your soul with joy, and what matters most to you.

 Creating A Good Day Manifesto

Creating A Good Day Manifesto

The Good Day Manifesto is a powerful short declaration that serves as a daily reminder of what it means to you to live and enjoy a good day.

What it means to you to do nothing and simply be present. What it means to love. What it means to give. What it means to do work that moves the rivers of your soul and do just enough of it so that you don’t tip the scales and plunge into the sly, vicious streams of burnout.

There’s only So Much You Can Control

There’s only So Much You Can Control

The reality of life is this: There are things within your locus of control and things outside of it; focus on the former, be conscious of the latter. The best use of your energy is to focus your days on what you can control—your attitude on any given day, the effort you put into anything you do, the knowledge you seek, the people you choose to hang out with and give your time to.

The Pursuit of Perfection vs Striving for Wholeness in Areas that Matter Most

The Pursuit of Perfection vs Striving for Wholeness in Areas that Matter Most

We both know that there’s only so much we can do in a given day, so why are we pushing ourselves to do more than our capacity? Why are we burning ourselves just to be overly productive and perfect? Isn’t that a toxic mindset?

Instead of pursuing empty perfection, how about we strive for wholeness in the areas that matter most? Areas like love and connection, inner peace, contribution, health, and flow.

All You Can Truly Enjoy Lives in This Present Moment

All You Can Truly Enjoy Lives in This Present Moment

What does the past hold? Besides being a vault of memories, lessons, and inner wisdom that can guide you toward the path of healing, its powers are meaningless. And what can we make of the future? Rather than it being a dark den of worry and anxiety, let it be nothing more than a boundless, colourful source of optimism—a constant reminder that tomorrow can still be beautiful even if it doesn’t seem to be so today.

How To Write Your Good Day Manifesto

How To Write Your Good Day Manifesto

Sit down, grab a pen and a piece of paper and then answer this question:

What does it mean to me to live a good day?

Now, describe it.

  • Let your thoughts spill in the form of ink on paper.
  • Once it’s ready, print it and read it daily.
  • Let it be the guiding light to your days.
  • Let it be the sun to the sunflower that is you.
  • Follow its rays from east to west, and allow it to remind you of your strength and power in how you choose to frame your days.
  • When you feel too rushed, consumed, or overwhelmed, let it remind you to slow down and reflect, once again, on what matters most to you.

To Live Good Days is to Live a Good Life

To Live Good Days is to Live a Good Life

Your manifesto will change over time; it will develop just like you.

Some petals will die, bowing down and falling to the ground to make way for the new. Some parts of you that you had once mourned will be reborn again, sprouting upward from the deep.

Whatever you write, they are not words carved on stone.

A Good Day Manifesto will raise your awareness of the inevitable passage of time. Soon, it will no longer be a question of “where does all the time go,” but rather a sentiment of “I love how beautifully time undresses, unfolding layer upon layer, to the rhythm of my days.”

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
