Over the years, I have learned so much from Oprah Winfrey. I felt a kinship with her from the day she began her show in Chicago in 1986. She was so real. Plus, she was a woman of size (like me). She was someone who was approachable, not above me.

Here's the dirty truth: We ascribe happiness to having achieved (fill-in-the-blank). And it's no wonder that we do. Media images tell us every damn day that we must look and act a certain way if we want to be happy. But you know what? It's crap. Really. You are enough. Right now. And so am I.

Daffnee Cohen

In a bustling society driven by technology and to-do lists, we tend to define our successes by how hard we work, what we have to show for it and what our next steps look like. For every individual, our successes are highly diverse and cover our careers and professional life, but also our love life, family life, health, finances, creative sides and so much more.

What's Really Lurking Behind Your Deepest Fears?

Ryan Greenhalgh | Posted 06.15.2015 | Healthy Living
Ryan Greenhalgh

Follow your fear. There's glory on the other side of the tunnel. You won't be able to see the light on the other side...maybe even for awhile. You won't ever be ready. You won't ever be totally confident. You won't ever grow the courage. You grow the courage by doing it even though you aren't ready.

Most strangers believe that I've manipulated my way to, for and in every opportunity possible. I'm used to it now. I have adjusted by disarming them with self-deprecating humor and/or hiding behind a bun, glasses and clothes purchased a size too big. (At the advice of my father.)

Rea Nolan Martin

The day our selfies accurately reflect our inner lives is the day we become an integrated species. This is the day the Shadow recedes and the Self of higher awareness shows up.

No matter where you are on the road to fulfillment, life gets messy. Milk cartons tip over. Businesses fail. Fender benders happen. Friends disappoint you. Messes, big and small, are inevitable.

Take the (Almost) Impossible Seven-Day Challenge

Anthony Meindl | Posted 06.09.2015 | Healthy Living
Anthony Meindl

when we create a problem in our mind and start freaking out, a light bulb also comes to you to show you how to fix the problem. Always. The no. 1 way to fix any problem is to act (not on stage, in your own life). But generally we default back into the rumination of our mind that got us stuck in the first place. So unless we make the effort, we stay in the problem.
