By Positively Positive | January 22, 2019

Sometimes I sit around having imaginary arguments with people I love/hate. They did this! And this! WHY?? I loved them. How could they do this!? I did THIS for them. WHY? I could do this fun activity for hours. Days even! I imagine what they say. And what I say back. And what they say. […]

What Would I Tell the Younger Me?

By Sarah Coder Girl | January 21, 2019

I once wrote a letter to myself as part of a school assignment. I was supposed to leave a note for the older me.

The room was clean. A large comfy chair with over-sized cushions sat angled in the corner to look out the wide window and see the city.

How to Keep Going When Everything Feels Hard

By Positively Positive | January 20, 2019

It’s no revelation for me to acknowledge that life and business are not always easy. Ask any newborn or seasoned business owner.

By Positively Positive | January 19, 2019

Self-control is very valuable, and most of us are eager to boost our self-mastery. One of the best ways, it turns out, is through monitoring. The more aware we are of what we’re actually doing–not what we wish we were doing, or imagine that we’re doing–the more control we can exert over ourselves.

By Positively Positive | January 18, 2019

Self-expression is not very encouraged in today’s society, which tends to reward more for achievement and appeasement. My guess is that your self-expression is a little backed up.
