People Pleaser

It is human nature to want to fit-in, to belong, to be part of the ‘in’ crowd. A lot of you would accept (at least to yourself) that you are people pleasers.

Women: 1. The Working Woman

  This is the first part of the series. The working woman I believe the first most important thing for any woman is free thinking and second most is financial independence!

Feathers in your cap

  Happiness can not be dependent on any one thing or person. I feel your hard work and positivity should not focus on what you want and your mental peace should be independent of the outcome. To be happy is really a decision and not a by product of an activity or possession. Life is a journey […]
