- Moved to Tears and Loving Acts by Witnessing Kindness
Have you ever been moved to tears by acts of kindness? This happens to me all the time and I've often wondered about it. I recently read an article by Daniel Burke, CNN Religion Editor, where he wrote about tearing up at watching the Pope's kindness.
- Forgiveness Is Important
The other day I was talking to someone who spoke about what a friend of theirs had done in the past and it was clear that they hadn't been able to move on from what had happened. A number of years had passed since that time, but it was as if it had happened the day before.

Starting from your family to your neighborhood, your workplace and even across the world, you have a lot of people to deal with.

We need to first address the thinking that has to accompany seeing the opportunity. The solution to what you are asking for lies on a different level then the problem.

- If We Only Focus On What People Have Achieved, We Will Overlook What They Hav...
At the beginning of last year, I shared a quote about how someone can overlook what another person has overcome if they only focus on what they have achieved.

After I left school I didn't have a clear plan, and a few years after I left, I ended up getting into self-development.

- Being Able To Face Pain Is An Important Part Of Developing Self-Awareness
A little while ago, I was thinking about the role that pain plays when it comes to developing self-awareness and self-knowledge. I thought that if someone experiences pain and ends up reaching out for something to take their pain away, it is going to stop them from looking into why they feel the way that they do.
