2 Life Lessons from 2016 & Why 2017 is all about Carpe Diem“The trouble is, you think you have time.” ~ Buddha

This past year has been many things for me – tumultuous, uneven, unexpectedly high, super low(at times), downright crazy, emotionally high-strung, thoroughly healing with immense growing etc.

But the one constant thought that stayed with me is the words of Buddha…The trouble is, you think you have time! Honestly, this thought never left me and it is even more stronger in my head now as I usher in the next year. I’ll tell you why in just a little bit.

I saw highs in 2016 like immense growth of Positive Provocations subscriber base, blossoming of my little girl into this beautiful person who is all heart(yay! happy mommy 🙂 ), Successfully Counseled countless Souls, friends that came back after years, healthier me, confidence levels boosted like NEVER before, awards and accolades, ideas and inspiration for businesses etc etc.

But there were lows too! Those lows are where all the learning came from. Those low points in 2016 are what jolted me back to that healthier, confident and more loving state I am in right now. So, I must acknowledge them. Continue reading

7 Positive Ways to keep Stress far, REALLY far away from you this New Year

7 Positive Ways to keep Stress far, REALLY far away from you this New Year“Stress is not what happens to us. It’s our response to what happens and response is something we can choose.” ~ Maureen Killoran

HAPPY NEW YEAR DARLINGS 🙂

A New Year means a new dawn. A new beginning. Are you coming into this glorious new year with old unnecessary baggage(stress)??? 

Believe it or not, we are almost always surrounded by stress. Be it work stress, relationship stress, self image stress, social stress….the list can be endless. Stress is unavoidable…it will be thrown at us at every nook and corner…BUT although we don’t have a choice at what is thrown at us…we have a choice as to how we allow it to effect us.

I personally choose to focus on what I did achieve…that leads me to feel happy for the year that has gone by and makes me feel hopeful for the new year. Continue reading
