Is Reading Enough?

IMG_4450Is the amount of things we read enough to justify having “knowledge” if we don’t apply what we’ve learned? Continue reading →

What I Read in 2015 & Reading Goals for 2016 (#MenaReads)

IMG_4454

2015 was a really good year for me in terms of books and things I read. I managed to come across a lot of books that steered me to looking deeper within myself and facing some personal issues and blockages that were keeping me from reaching my highest potential and I plan on maintaining that as a focus for 2016.

I’m generally very much attracted to anything self-help, self-improvement, personal growth, shadow work etc., so it makes sense that most of the books I’m about to mention fall into these categories. I’m also very much into health and understanding the human body with a focus on holistic health and homeopathy so some of the books here will also be about that too.  Continue reading →

Success is a Matter of Habit

DSC_0859

I’ve been sort of stuck in a rut or as I like to say, I’ve been in my feelings for the last couple of weeks and I was going to write a very sad post about how nothing is going right and everything sucks but in the spirit of trying to keep positive and actively doing things to get out the rut I decided to talk about the importance of developing and keeping good habits instead.

I was recently reminded of how most of what we think is guided by our feelings and feelings are not facts, meaning, the things you think to yourself, about yourself, about others, about the situations you’re in etc., are most likely just Continue reading →

Money Talks [5]: Investing (A Non-Conventional Approach)

DSC_0831

When most of us hear the word “investing” we think “stocks”, “bonds”, “company shares”, “IPOs” or simply “I can’t do that” and I’m here to tell you that I’m still learning how to do it (Notice how I didn’t say “I don’t know” or “can’t” do it? We’ll get into that a little later on) so that’s not the type of investment we’re going to talk about today. Continue reading →

Money Talks [4]: Saving

DSC_0888

There are many points of view when it comes to saving. Most people advocate for it, some people prefer focusing on investing in stocks and bonds as a more reliable way of saving money. Since I personally am not in a position to start formally investing just yet I’m creating a sort of “nest egg” while I learn about formal investing and decide how I want to go about it. Whether you’re using a formal government saving plan like a pension plan or just choosing to do it on your own through savings accounts, I believe Continue reading →

On Books and Reading

Books I read in 2014

Happy New Year everybody!

Hope you’re all doing ok and had a wonderful holiday season! May this year be filled with positivity and may we all achieve any and everything we set out to do!

I wanted to start the year off with a little reflection on the past year but instead of talking about what I did or wish I’d done last year I’ve decided to focus solely on the more positive notes so why not talk about reading?!

Books are my absolute favorite toy. Books are filled with so much information and they entice and stimulate the imagination in a way other forms of media can’t. Now, I do acknowledge that reading might not be everybody’s favorite thing to do and even though I personally think reading is a habit that is worth developing, not everybody is inclined in that direction. According to NRP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Continue reading →
