What do we all have in common that makes us human?

Many people have a hard time accepting responsibility for these choices in their lives but if you look at yourself honestly and in an unbiased fashion, you will see the power your choices have had on the success or failure in your life.

At each moment in the day, each thought that we entertain is a choice. Many times I find myself thinking a thought that is judgmental, negative or fear driven. Fortunately, with everything we think, the opposite is also available. Like flipping a switch, we have the ability at any moment to turn off those negative thoughts and turn them into a positive. This is a thought switch that is available to you at all moments. Rather than complain, think something else. Read more...(399 words, 3 images, estimated 1:36 mins reading time)
Although I have trouble sometimes with certain concepts, one thing has become abundantly clear. Being Confident in life is a choice.
Confidence stems from the conscious decision to accept yourself for what you are and to not let your weaknesses rule over your strengths. Can it really be that simple? The answer is apparently a loud and emphatic YES!
Let’s face it, we are all people, and all people are constructed to have a list of strengths and weaknesses that we are born with. Everybody is in the same boat. Read more...(1042 words, 5 images, estimated 4:10 mins reading time)
What are you sure of in life? What philosophy can you stand behind and not shy away from because you are sure of its validity? We all have some non-negotiable items in this cache. The sun will rise, the sun will set. Life is fleeting. You must work hard to be successful. The government is looking out for your best interest. If it isn’t one thing, it’s another. There are many points of view which are considered by people constant, unshakable and permanent fixtures in life and creators of our reality. Yet in reality, they are only interesting points of view that you can choose to believe or discard as you see fit. Read more...(761 words, 11 images, estimated 3:03 mins reading time)
When you look at your existence what do you feel? Are you located in your body alone, simply taking up the space that you are physically in at the moment? Or are you more than that? Only you can answer this. Do you make yourself small like a pebble or big like the sky? This decision is made each day by all people living all over the world, in all sorts of circumstances.

I have often wondered if there is really such a thing as free will or are we just following predetermined cosmic paths created for us to experience.
Constantly people are faced with challenges and situations which always give them a key experience or understanding that they need to accomplish a goal or create something that never could have been accomplished without it. Did you make choices about your actions or was it your destiny? Read more...(831 words, 12 images, estimated 3:19 mins reading time)
What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
by Jonathan Hilton
All people are going to answer this question differently depending on where they are in their life. To me being alive is a fact of nature, and enjoying life and living for a purpose is truly living. But how do you enjoy life?
Other people will answer this very differently. It only takes a few visits to any number of blogs to experience the wide variety of philosophies and beliefs that exist. Read more...(1074 words, 11 images, estimated 4:18 mins reading time)
One of the things I like the least in life are mean people. Mean people exist and thrive on crapping on the attitude, accomplishments, interests or well being of someone else, with the sole purpose of making themselves feel more powerful or to increase their own self-esteem. In a word these people are toxic and need to be avoided at all costs. They can leave you feeling worn out, tired, depleted and negative about everything but most importantly about yourself. It seems that they spend all day thinking about how to be mean to people. Read more...(1319 words, 10 images, estimated 5:17 mins reading time)
