A Simple Message That Will Make You Cry

We don’t usually have the perspective regret offers us until it’s too late. But we can learn from what so many others have said: be present and appreciate your loved ones. Although not always apparent, we all want to connect, love, and be loved, so making it a priority can help create a fulfilling, regret-free life.

Kate Maree O’Brien depicts herself first as an older woman with regret. Through movie magic, she fortunately has a second chance to be young again and do the things she’s always wanted to do: spend time with the kids and the family.

It sometimes feels like we will have so much time, so we tell ourselves that when we have more money or more free time, then we’ll do what we really want to. But the reality is we don’t know how much time we have. And unlike Kate in this video, we don’t have a do-over. But there is a way to ensure we don’t have regrets. Live now!

Is It Possible To Not Be Insecure About Our Bodies?

No two bodies are alike. We all are different sizes and shapes, and  we should value this; however, from a young age, we learn to reject ourselves, to cover up our “flaws,” and to sometimes even be disgusted with what we look like.

Kate Maree O’Brien asserts that this is not okay and not normal. She’s right. In reality, there is no right way to look. Flaws are subjective. For every type of body, there is a person who is attracted to it.

After almost dying from self-rejection and anorexia, Kate turned her self-image around. This video is proof of her newfound comfort in her natural body. Portrayed doing a nude photoshoot, she proclaims she’s proud of her rolls and stretch marks.

We all have insecurities. But we don’t have to. Click on this video and share the post to help create a world where we all can love our physical bodies just the way they are.

All Parents Should Read This Letter From A High School Principal

When kids pour their efforts and talents into schoolwork, yet still receive a less than perfect grade, it can feel like a part of themselves has been rejected–marked as not good enough. This feeling can sink in, take hold, and have long-lasting effects on self-confidence. Lower self-confidence leads to lower achievement, leading to negative consequences that just multiply and effect all of us.  

Because educational institutions, with their grade policies and standards, have been in place for so long, we sometimes accept the status quo without being aware of these ramifications. This video reveals a refreshing perspective we don’t often hear.

Watch as Jay shetty reads this letter to parents written by a principal in Singapore. The letter reminds parents that we all have different interests and strengths, and poor school grades won’t take away their children’s dreams. It reminds parents to react to all grades with love and without judgement.

Fail Like A Child

As little kids, we haven’t had the time or the brain power to intellectualize our world, to develop false ideas about our capabilities. In this video, Jay Shetty recreates a conversation he had with a new father. They observe the child and recall that all of us learned to walk by falling over and over again. But we always got back up and tried again. We didn’t even think about it or get discouraged and think “this is too hard.” We just got back up and, after a while, we all became expert walkers.

Just because we are older does not mean we have to impose limitations and feel irreversibly crushed when we fail. Tapping into our younger selves can help us readopt the mentality of blind persistence. Of course we are going to fail. It’s part of succeeding!

Check out this impactful conversation about failing like a child. Share this post to remind others that we’ve all been persistent since the beginning and don’t have to stop now.

A Lesson About Failure from a Child

We can learn so much from children. This is based on a real life conversation. Share this with a friend who is having a tough time! Thanks Jay Shetty

Before You Break Up, Watch This

When people fall in love and form a commitment, a two-way street of love and communication opens between them. The catch is that everyone receives and gives love differently. And when people’s styles differ, this two-way street can be more like two parallel one-way streets–never meeting, and always shrouded in mystery and frustration.

Take the couple in this video, for example. Each tries to show the other affection, yet each feels unattended to. Without communicating or understanding each other’s love languages, they will persistently feel like the other person isn’t interested (which really isn’t true!). All kinds of anxiety and resentment and wondering ensue.

Once he figures out that she just wants time and supportive words and once she learns that he just wants physical tokens of appreciation, they can finally express their love in a way that is received.

So before you jump to conclusions, communicate with and explore each other and you’ll hopefully find yourself on the same, blissful street.

The inspiration for the video comes from the book the 5 love languages.

Watch and share with other couples!

What Love Looks Like When it Works

Oh relationships. They can be a source of so many twisting and turning emotions. But we are attracted to love so much because of the potential for how it can feel and what it can be. Love can transform whole worlds. Two people coming together can create this feeling of wholeness, impenetrable by the daily worries that usually seem to take hold of us.

Then there’s the flipside: we’ve probably all felt the disappointment, the heartbreak, that comes within human relationships; however, especially if you’ve begun to lose hope, this video by Jason Silva, with it’s touching words and images, can restore your view of the power of loving relationships.

LOVE TRAIN

The Secret to Happiness? Spend Money on Experiences, Not Things

Happiness can seem like this elusive goal we all are trying to reach. That’s also kind of the issue: as long as we try to reach happiness as a goal, it will elude us. When we get to what we think will make us happy–the new job, the car, the house–we will soon find ourselves looking for the next possession to make us happy.

Jason Silva understands that possessions do not have enduring happy-making effects. Rather, it’s all the experiences along the way that enhance our life experience. Listen to him talk about his secret to happiness; it’s not really one of those secrets you have to keep, so feel free to share with others!
