Start A Blog

Before you start reading – I have to clarify this is not your typical start a blog and get rich guide that seem to be popping up like weeds all over the Internet. Sure, you can make money from blogging and sure some bloggers do become millionaires – but who are we kidding, not every kid who picks up a basketball is going to make 37 Million Dollars a year like LeBron James. I started blogging in 2010 – and yes you can argue those were simpler times for the Internet – but for me, blogging has always been more about self-expression and sharing my ideas….

The Job of My Daydreams A while ago, I landed myself a job interview with a company that – at least on paper – seemed all but ideally suited for my interests and career goals. True, I didn’t have that much experience (to be more precise, I basically had no experience at all), but, somehow, I was sure that the spark in my eyes and the passion in my heart would more than make up for it. I didn’t want to leave anything to chance, so I planned everything out in detail the night before and got up three hours earlier in the morning. Half an hour later, I was already on the subway, headphones in my ears, my playlist stacked with so much firepower that I swear I could feel the cord burning from time to time. In a word, I was more than ready...

Optimistic Quotes

One of the hardest things to do in life is to maintain a positive attitude about yourself and to feel confident in your abilities especially when things are difficult or stressful. As a high school student myself, I witness this happening almost every single day. With midterms and university applications coming up, so many students doubt themselves (including me!) and worry about getting accepted into their dream university or getting the necessary marks required to go there. Even adults don’t believe in themselves and sell themselves short, for example thinking they’re not good enough for that big promotion at work or worrying they will fail miserably if they start a business. You are so quick to jump to the negatives and focus on why you are destined for failure that sometimes you don’t even give yourself a chance for success. If you, reading this, are one of those individuals with negative thoughts, I have a question for you...

Beat Depression With Laughter

I remember that time as if it was yesterday. Emptiness. Loneliness. Sadness. Even my partner, who comes back home every day late in the evening, couldn’t console me. I stopped eating, taking care of myself, going shopping like I used to every other week (after all, when you work at home, you don’t need beautiful dresses, skirts and cute, expensive T-shirts...). I would get up at 9 o’clock, eat a piece of bread with whatever I found in the fridge, strive to work in front of my laptop until evening, forget about dinner time, and without taking a shower, go to bed. The next day looked exactly the same. After a month, my boyfriend told me that it had to change because he couldn’t stand me being so “ghost-like.” He tried to help me in many ways, but nothing worked. At least, not for long. Then a miracle happened…

The Importance of Having a Healthy Relationship With Food

Code of Living Author

By: Billie P – 5 months 3 weeks​ ago

Food is an important part of everyone’s lives. Whether you are indulging in sweets, nurturing your body with nothing but nutrition, or cooking yourself a grand meal to enjoy with family, food is often found at the center of the theoretical world. According to Earnest, the average household food budget this year will be $6,800. Not only does food have nutritional value, it carries a real financial cost. Take a moment to consider the emotional and financial cost of what you are eating. For example, a five dollar piece of cake can be seen as derailing from a diet or a health regimen. A five dollar bag of pistachios, on the other hand. cost the same monetarily, but hold a much higher nutritional value and a smaller emotional debt than the piece of cake. While fueling our bodies should be the primary reason for eating, often times we overlook the purpose of food. By forming a positive relationship with your plate, you can maintain a healthy body and mind. By focusing on food’s strict nutritional purpose — you can help yourself determine the value of its consumption as well as the importance of the relationship you have with it.
