The link between anxiety & learning disabilities

Anxiety is the #1 issue with individuals who have autism and also other neurological disorders like dyslexia. I have two children with learning disabilities and both have also been diagnosed with anxiety. The first step in developing good anxiety reduction strategies is to isolate the cause (s) of the anxiety and this can be different... Continue Reading →

Having a bad reputation is a good thing

We don't have to give a damn about our reputation. What people say behind our back shouldn't affect our behaviour or our choices.  All human being should do what they want to do as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else. There shouldn't be any rules about what you are allowed to do depending on... Continue Reading →

What’s most shocking about University

What shocked me the University is the sheer number of female students who were there to find a husband. I couldn't believe that this type of thinking was still striving in society.  I might have been raised to aspire to marriage like many women, but I was never expected to make my life choices always...

I’ve found that being raw and real about my own struggles has helped others, so I do it for those who haven’t found their voice yet. I am certainly familiar... Continue Reading →

Office Talk & Weight Obsession

Every single day, I sit in the kitchen and listen to conversations about weight, diets, health, etc. Something tells me I'm not the only one. It's become an office-wide obsession. We even have voluntary weight loss contests throughout the year, an office balance and special rebates if we join the local gym, etc. The social pressure... Continue Reading →

Jalousy isn’t love

Spousal violence always has psychological impacts no matter the form it takes. As a mother, I strongly believe pre-adolescent and adolescent prevention is essential for them to learn how to peacefully resolve conflicts that may arise in their first dating relationships. Young people must be taught that jealousy is not a sign of love. That... Continue Reading →

Radiant Life

A radiant life is a life in your image. Our minds function best when we are free and living true to ourselves, our passions, and our values. Let your passions guide you and see how far they will lead you. These are the moments that matter. “None of us is getting out of here alive, so please... Continue Reading →
