Finding Yourself Without Losing Yourself

*Repost* The Art of Being True To Oneself One thing that has been consistent over the decades is that people are always on some kind of trip. Be it political, religious, or health (to name a few), we are all on a journey for truth and a better life. I wouldn't go so far as … Continue reading Finding Yourself Without Losing Yourself

Letting The Past Off The Hook

Mind Control While sitting in my patio this morning, a thought randomly crossed my mind, and it really upset me.  That thought brought other unpleasant thoughts, and they were all related to each other.  They all shared a common bond. I believe that mornings set the pace for the rest of the day, so It's … Continue reading Letting The Past Off The Hook

Accepting Life’s Challenges

You Control Your Thoughts I spent a great part of today overthinking things.  As I've expressed in prior articles, I'm about to make a huge life change.  This change is like no other transition that I have ever made.  With making changes of any kind, there are always moving parts, sometimes a few, sometimes many.  … Continue reading Anxiety, Insecurity, And Overthinking

Being Supportive of Yourself

Don't Second Guess Yourself I've been writing Afrologik for ten months now.  Writing this blog has become one of my favorite things to do.  I love and appreciate the reactions (both the good and the bad reactions.  Luckily, there are far more good reactions than bad). I'm not exaggerating when I say that Afrologik has … Continue reading Being Supportive of Yourself
