How a “Selfie” Culture Can Lead to a Selfish Life

“Many people are unhappy and are not experiencing life to its fullest because they’ve closed their hearts to compassion, they are motivated by only what they want and what they think they need.

Today I Cut My Hair & Changed My Life

A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life. ~Coco Chanel

I cut my hair today. And it felt good.

Actually, it felt better than good. It felt like freedom.

You see, for a really long time, I’ve let my hair and my thoughts about my hair and my feelings about my hair and my insecurities about my hair sort of control me. Over the course of my 34 years, I’ve permed it and straightened » Read More
