I have been thinking a lot about why is it so hard for most people to love themselves and believe that they are enough. That their value is not dependent on what they are doing, what others think of them and what they own In my experience of talking to people, the root cause of most of the anxiety and suffering that people go through is because deep down they do not believe that they are good enough. They might feel they are not doing enough, not pretty enough, not rich enoug

Google is filled with questions like this and millions of articles sharing information about how to be happy. I have had my own personal journey that started with me feeling very anxious and sad all of the time. It's through the daily practice of specific habits and practices, that now I feel happy most of the time. My own observation of myself has revealed to me that it is what I am thinking about and focusing on most of the time that determines how happy I am feeling. Now y
The single most important skill and feeling that can improve your happiness level is to be able to love yourself unconditionally. Easy to say and often overused in the spiritual and self development world, it can feel as if there is no clear direction on the how part of it.

Firstly, I want to stress that there is no magic fo
I have two kids presently but even if you don't have any kids, I invite you to find opportunities to observe kids because we have much to gain from them in terms of learning to live a joyful life. I generally am quiet fascinated by how the human brain and consciousness works. And what I find very interesting from years of talking to adults is that we as adults think and behave very differently to children. You might be thinking of course , what is new about that ?

The skills that I have learnt in the last 10 years have given me more fulfillment and happiness than all that I had learnt in the previous 28 years of my life.

As a little girl, I was always chubby. As I grew into my teens I was extremely unhappy about my body. By the time I turned 22 I made being overweight the number one reason for my unhappiness.
Then in my mid-twenties, I lost a lot of weight by dieting and exercise. But what I didn't teach myself was to handle stress and so, as I grew in my career , I also put on weight as I battled to handle the increasing demands and stresses of my job.

There was once a little girl who was very sad. She cried a lot and felt very unloved and un appreciated but what was wonderful about her was she always knew deep down that one day she would receive the love that she wants and craves for so badly.
As she grew into a teenager, she fantasized about a prince who would come on a silver horse and rescue her and then love and protect her forever.
