Living outside the box

By Bo Brummel I belong to the generation known as Millennials, which includes everyone born between the year 1981 – 1996. Growing up I quickly came to the realisation that the choices and freedom my generation has are way more abundant than 40 years ago. Most people lived where they were born, worked there and got married to someone near them. It was not this idea in particular that scared me, it was the predictability of life, and the fear of living a short and unfulfilled life that stimulated me to live my life in a different way. Of course, […]

Open up: Communicating hard things to people we love

We all have had a moment when we want to say something difficult to somebody we love but we doubt whether to open the Pandora’s box or avoid a confrontation. Especially with people we love and care about, it can be quite frightening. We are afraid that we might upset their feelings, hurt the relationship and scar something precious to us for life. However, an open communication is one of the main characteristics of a healthy relationship. Opening up to say things that hurt us, worry us, concern us or make us feel heavy is needed to live an open […]

Defining success

What does success look like and how do we know when we’ve made it? So often we keep chasing goals yet once we reach them, we realise that we’re not any more fulfilled than we were before. So how do we define success? When we think about the word success, the first themes that come to mind are often relating to money, work, power, fame, beauty and material achievements. But what is the foundation for these commonly presented views of success? As often stated by the Dalai Lama, the true goal that each of us seeks is to find happiness. […]

Letting go of fear

It seems that everywhere we look, people are riddled by fear. Fear of being judged, of voicing their own opinions (whether in line or against popular views), of living how they truly want, working the jobs that make them happy, and reaching for the life that they deserve. Essentially, we’ve become afraid of truly being ourselves. The biggest testament to this is the fear that people have of working towards their dreams. As children we had no fear – we did what we wanted, until eventually we were conditioned to believe in boundaries, limitations and the importance of meeting expectations. […]

The importance of boundaries

Often we find ourselves in situations or amongst people that leave us feeling drained, frustrated or doubting ourselves. Yet we continue to allow these people and situations to be part of our lives – maybe we feel obliged because we’ve known them a long term, or we just feel bad saying no and making someone else unhappy. Maybe we feel perversely better about ourselves by being agreeable and making someone else temporarily happier, to the detriment of our own emotional and mental wellbeing. If we continue these patterns however, we start to realise that we’re not truly making choices for […]

Dealing with judgement

No matter what we do in life, we will always encounter positive and negative feedback. Sometimes this feedback comes from a place of love and in knowing this, we can accept and even embrace it to help improve ourselves. But often, this feedback comes not because someone cares about us – but in the form of judgement. Why does this happen and what can we do about it? The act of judgement is about questioning the moral intentions of another person – showing (or convincing oneself) that one’s views and intrinsic value are greater than another’s. We should note that […]

Acceptance of our human experience – embracing difficult emotions

The pursuit of happiness is every individual’s ultimate goal, and every day we are reminded that this is within our control. Whether this is through work, relationships, self-development activities, material possessions or simply changing our mindset, we are taught various ways to increase our happiness levels. Yet despite all this effort, we still feel moments of grief, fear, anger, loneliness, jealousy and lack of fulfilment. What can we do about these negative feelings? Because we’re self-sufficient and successful in our working lives, we are frustrated with ourselves for having emotional responses to situations that shouldn’t affect us. Why aren’t we […]

Seven ways to cut out the crap and start living the life you deserve

Often we feel stuck in our lives yet also paralysed in making change. We’re influenced by so many factors around us, both external and internal, and we often have no idea what we want in life and what truly fulfils us. Here are seven things I wish I’d appreciated (and implemented) earlier, to cut out the crap in my life and bring me closer to my own personal truths: 1. Clean up your environment. Your external environment and particularly your home, is a reflection of your inner self. Where there is internal chaos, this often manifests into messiness, untidiness, generally […]

What hobbies can bring to our lives

Ever since I was young, my parents encouraged us to take up hobbies. Being quite traditional Asian parents, these hobbies included reading, playing piano, swimming and table tennis. As I’ve grown older, I’ve come to appreciate the importance of hobbies and the value that they can bring to our lives. Over recent years, I’ve dabbled in a number of additional hobbies, including painting, martial arts, yoga and most recently dancing, all of which have added tremendous value to my life. Whilst (almost) everyone needs to study or work in order to sustain themselves, what they choose to do in their […]
