I used to give advice and guidance based on my intellect. I thought that knowing something meant you read it and understood it, page but I’ve come to learn that true knowledge – at least in the context of personal growth – comes from the most basic life experience. For years I tinkered on the brink of understanding the meaning of concepts like love, more about solitude, trust, fulfillment and happiness. I’ve read, studied, experienced and observed all of these and more in some form throughout my life, but I’m still a novice at best. This used to frustrate me […]

It’s true that habits are hard to break. I’ve read that it takes 21 days to stop doing something you habitually do, including things like nail biting, smoking and cracking your knuckles. But what about habits that are not as noticeable to the outside world like worrying, over-planning or complaining? Often considered traits, certain actions or behaviors are more habitual than inherent which means you can reduce how much you do them – or stop them all together. Just because you know something is bad for you doesn’t mean you won’t do it, an often overlooked fact that leads to self-loathing […]

saying yes is powerful but it takes courage.

Posted on August 5th, 2016 by Dr. Andra Brosh

  There’s a lot of information on the internet, and in self-help books about how to use the word “no” as a complete sentence. This kind of advice is directed at those of us who have difficulty setting boundaries or putting our own needs before the needs of others – a common problem that leaves you feeling depleted and often resentful in your life and relationships. Knowing where to draw the line between self and other is an important part of healthy relating, but there’s also a whole population of people that have a hard time saying yes. What prevents […]

  Unhappiness is an important pathway to Happiness. As a culture we’re on a happiness seeking mission always trying to get away from being unhappy, cheapest but the truth is that your unhappiness can actually direct you toward being happier. Everyone wants to be happy. In fact, happiness is probably at the top of your list of goals in life, and I’m sure it’s been a New Years Resolution in the past. Wishing you were happier won’t get you very far because as you’ll learn, your happiness is actually something you can control. But what about your unhappiness? You aren’t […]

Some months bring more to us than others, but April is super special because it embodies so much beauty, renewal, and promise. I feel like I wait all year for April because somehow I find myself blossoming each year around this time. What April really shifts for me is my concept of time. Somehow time becomes less urgent and frenetic, and that space gives me the chance to step back and review my relationship to this construct that often feels more like a commandment than a gift. I think we forget how powerful time can be when we move away […]

I hear stories all day long. Sad stories, funny stories, unbelievable stories, and stories of courage. People tell me things that they don’t tell anyone else in the world, and while this sometimes can feel overwhelming, it’s more often an honor and privilege. Within these stories are themes of love, loss, success, ambivalence and fear. I help people connect the dots of their lives by listening and watching closely for anything that will help me piece together the puzzle of who they are, and where they want to be. Sometimes these themes are so buried under layers of defense and […]
