None of this will help you rock your biz or quit your day job. But it just might help make your life a little more awesome.
A collection of some of my favorite inspirational quotes to make your day (slash-life) a little better.
While we pay lip service to the pursuit of happiness, most of us have no clue what to do with it if it actually comes our way. Here’s how to get over that.
We all allow crap and nonsense into our lives, and we all deserve better. I’d like to tell you how to take things from “meh” to freakin’ awesome.
You’re wasting your energy trying to “deal” with things that have no payoff other than making you utterly unhappy. Why not channel that energy into making things better?
It’s all too easy to let your happiness fall to the whims of external factors . But ultimately, it all comes down to you.
Quitting your job, finding “the one,” moving to Tahiti, winning the lottery…Nothing will make you you really, truly happy unless you learn how to BE happy.
When we think of lifestyle design, our minds tend to jump to 4-hour workweeks, location independence somewhere in the Caribbean, and those clichéd shots of someone’s laptop on their legs as they sit on a beach as the rest of us wilt away in cube-land. And I’m not saying that doesn’t sound hella lovely. But […]
Last week, I turned down what could have been my dream job. Or, rather, what would have been my dream job a couple years ago, but was now almost my dream job, but not quite the more I started to think about it. I will explain (then tell you what it means to you; skip […]
Lately, any time that isn’t “billable” feels like wasted time to me.Color me obvious, but this doesn’t quite seem like what a lifestyle business is supposed to be like.
I am a firm believer in the power of positivity. Whether it’s keeping an optimistic outlook, being open to new opportunities, or choosing the high road when the low would be so much easier, embracing a positive attitude in life can truly get you places. I’m also firmly turned off by “woo-woo” new age fluff […]
The philosophical breakdown of the meaning of my new tat. (Thesis: you can be Zen and still fight your little heart out.)
This is not going to be about resolutions, although I suppose you could call it a resolution, just like this whole blog, this whole project, this whole thing I’m doing called “trying to live right” is one big ongoing resolution. This about what “living right” really means. What living really means. This Sunday, New Year’s […]
They say that childhood, especially your school years, are the happiest years of your life. Often, I wonder who the hell “they” are and what “they” know. One of my most powerful memories of my childhood was going to see a Phil Collins concert with Mum and Dad in my first year of high school. […]
My name is Cordelia, and I am a hustleraholic. But not for long…
Somewhere along the way, I got so caught up in the Grand Master Plan that I forgot about the underlying plan for this blog. It’s time to correct that.
In which my subconscious tells me that too much of a good thing is still too much.
[Part of my mission to “live deliberately” involves ruthlessly cutting out anything that saps my time, energy or money to no good end. I’m calling these things my “Quits,” and this is one of the many items that have found themselves on my Quits List.] Lately, my eye has started twitching again. In fact, […]
As kids, we knew a hell of a lot more about our taking care of our own happiness than we do now. Where did the disconnect happen?
