5 Steps to Building Meaningful Relationships

simple hello

This is a great piece published by Michelle Maros, Peaceful Mind Peaceful Life’s Creative Director and resident writer.  We think it’s really worth sharing with our EKO family…

Relationships– the enigma of our lives. They can bring us so much joy and at times so much sadness. Relationships are a core part of life, and meaningful, positive relationships are key to living life in peace. From early childhood to the present moment

Chop, chop and the bearded ladies

I’m pondering the not so superficial things, like hair length (mine) and facial hair, two things which at first glance may seem unconnected, and have nothing to do with self-image discovery and women’s empowerment.  So let’s rip the scab off and see what oozes out.

Not only as women does our hair somehow become matrimonial property (even if you’re not married!) but everyone has an opinion on it. Then, stupidly, some of us (myself included) listen to other people’s opinions and forget about what “I” might like and what might be best for “me”!

5 tips about making change happen & 5 ideas around what could be stopping you

respect yourself

I know I probably don’t need to tell you that you need to change in order to grow. The moment you stop changing, you stop growing. When you choose not to grow your positive experiences of life begin to diminish.  It’s okay if you choose not to grow of course :o) If, however, you’re keen to learn more you might be glad of a few tips to change up your life in a manageable way:

1. Slow yourself down to examine your life and make the room for change.

Lego Hair, and the Non-existence of Self

lego hair2

This is a gross generalisation; women of (my) Generation X are panicking at the inevitable advance of age and how they should negotiate it.

All epic journeys have a beginning and a great place to start is at the top. Ask yourself the question ‘Do I have Lego Hair?’ Do you wear your hair or does your hair wear you? What to do if you do have Lego Hair? There are technical details which we will go into at a later date but more importantly … could it be that it just isn’t you?
