Oola: My Journey of Self-Discovery and Balance – June 20: Accomplishment

How often do we start a project or a task only to “leave it until later”? For me, more often than I would like to admit. Sure, I could say that I was multitasking and a more important project came along, but the truth is that it was probably a task/project that became too frustrating […]

Oola: My Journey of Self-Discovery and Balance – June 19: Envy

Did you know that being envious can prevent you from obtaining what you want? Now, I know what some of you are thinking because I thought that, too – “Doesn’t wanting something make you work harder, so how can that stop me?” Envy isn’t just about wanting something. If it was, the word wouldn’t exist […]

Oola: My Journey of Self-Discovery and Balance – June 18: Dream Big

We all have dreams. Sometimes we admit what they are and tell everyone. Sometimes we keep them secret just in case they don’t work out so well.

I am my own worst enemy sometimes. I know this, but I don’t always admit it. My pride gets in the way, and I trip over my own self-inflicted bruised ego. I think everyone is like that sometimes. I think we all self-sabotage whether we know it or not. Some of us recognize it sooner […]

Oola: My Journey of Self-Discovery and Balance – June 16: Anger

I am not perfect, no one is. I am not an expert. This is just me as I make this transformative journey toward balance and peace in my life. We are told that being angry is not a good thing. From advertisements to self-help readings, we are told that we should be happy. However, as […]

Oola: My Journey of Self-Discovery and Balance – June 14: Forgiveness

Forgive – it’s an easy word to say. It’s a much harder thing to do. When we have been hurt, we want the person who hurt us to pay for that hurt. We are plagued by a sense of right and wrong, a feeling that justice needs to be done. Sometimes that’s possible. Sometimes not. […]

Oola: My Journey of Self-Discovery and Balance – June 13: Courage

How many times have we thought to ourselves, “Someday I’ll be brave enough to do that” or “Someday I’ll say what I need to say when I need to say it”? The problem with “someday” is that it never gets here. “Someday” is always just beyond our reach. We keep moving that horizon because we’re […]
