….die young. I don’t know if that’s true, but when someone we love passes away, it brings everything important into focus. 
Most of us want to be more compassionate. But in reality, many of our actions are uncompassionate and don’t bring us the happiness that each of us wants. 
When things are not the way we want them to be, we have an opportunity. Instead of pushing the difficulties away, we can use them to find what we do want. 
It’s completely normal and acceptable for us to spend hours of our day scrolling the internet. Is it a waste of our lives?
Whether it is Thanksgiving in your country or not, today’s podcast is a beautiful reminder of the power of gratitude. And I have a fun little challenge for everyone at the end. 
In today’s podcast, I answer a question from one of my students. She is struggling to connect with her inner voice. I give her a strategy to help her. 
I talk about my 4 year old niece a lot here because she is such a source of joy and learning for me. As many of you know she is very sick right now in hospital. 
…the hardest word. Today I am going to teach you how to say sorry. If you can master this, it will make a big difference in your relationships. 
It can be easy for us to put the focus on ourselves and worry about what others think. Maybe it’s time for us to lighten up a little. 
Being upset or in distress is an uncomfortable feeling. However, it also gives us some tremendous opportunities that we may not be aware of. 
Often we don’t get things right. We sometimes have days where we act far from the kind and loving person we want to be. How can you manage these days without getting down on yourself?
Today I answer an email from a student who finds that she begins to get anxious during her workday. She asks me how she can quickly settle herself back down. 
When we have things troubling us, how do we deal with them? Should we bring them into the light by discussing them? One of my students asked this question, and in today’s podcast, I answer it. 
We have all heard this saying. Is it true? I think we are going at working hard. I’m not sure we do the resting part so well. 
For some of us, we tend to have a passive attitude to our lives. We want things to change, yet we may not feel we have to step into that change. 
The world is challenging right now. There is a lot of anger and division. How can you make your world a better place?
Why is an optimistic mindset so vital in our toolkit? It affects our whole life, so it is a powerful tool to investigate. 
Happiness is like a string of pearls. And the best part is you can have it every single day.
Why is it that the things we fear sometimes show up in our lives? We are sticky. And in that stickiness, we create problems for ourselves. 
It’s not an easy time to be kind. We are faced with a lot of stress and uncertainty. No wonder it is so challenging. 
There is safety in knowing. We can box things and people so we can manage life. It also hinders us into a place of believing we have the world, and other people, figured out. 
It can be easy for us to blame other people for our lack of happiness. Most people do. You don’t need to be one of them. 
I was asked a few days ago what the most significant struggle that people face is? There is no doubt that accepting ourselves is the number one. 
The world is much more manageable when we divide it into clear cut parts. However, we miss out on so much when we do. 
Holding onto things causes us suffering. We know that. But letting go is not easy. However, there is a way to practice it regularly to become a more effortless skill in your life.
