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.

Life is like an ice-cream cone

Life is like an ice-cream cone

“Life is like an ice-cream cone, you have to lick it one day at a time.”Charles M. Schulz

I scream for Ice-Cream! Always! Now more since I have been off sugar for the past almost 2 years…yup I do crave my cold, sweet and completely decadent ice cream fix.

I remember as a little girl, whenever I was in a bad mood my daddy took me out for ice cream. In those moments, while licking that sweet wondrous treat all my bad moods would turn sweet. All those frowns would turn into smiles. All that troubled me melted as quickly as the ice cream itself. Continue reading

4 Positive Ways to Squash that Judgmental Bug & Let the Loving you *Shine*

4 Positive ways to squash that judgmental bug and shine“Look at the weaknesses of others with compassion, not accusation. It’s not what they’re not doing or should be doing that’s the issue.
