Marcus Aurelius

At its core, this timeless wisdom reminds us that happiness is not a fleeting emotion dependent on external circumstances, but a state of being cultivated from within. It highlights the power of our thoughts in shaping our perceptions, attitudes and ultimately, our experiences of the world around us.

Consider for a moment the impact of a positive mindset. When we choose to focus on gratitude rather than grievances, on possibilities rather than limitations, we unlock a reservoir of joy and contentment within ourselves. Suddenly, the ordinary becomes extraordinary, and even the most mundane moments shimmer with meaning and beauty.

In a world where constant learning and self-improvement are no longer a luxury, it’s easy to overlook the value of unlearning. Yet, shedding outdated beliefs, habits and perceptions can reveal hidden truths about ourselves, guiding us towards deeper self-awareness and happiness.

In this edition of Rich Monday Paper inspired by Kate Ferdinand, we explore the concept of unlearning what no longer serves your purpose and its profound impact on your ability to be happier.

To be or not to be a single parent?

Step-parents are often unfairly portrayed as outsiders in family dynamics, navigating treacherous terrain marked by resentment and discord. Yet, this portrayal fails to capture the depth and potential of blended family relationships. It overlooks the genuine love, mutual respect and the positive environment that can arise when people from different backgrounds come together with a shared commitment to support one another.

In my own experience, I made choices based on social conditioning but if we want to change for better the reality of our ever-evolving society, it’s crucial to broaden our understanding of step-parenting and challenge outdated stereotypes. By embracing a more inclusive perspective, we can foster greater acceptance and unity within blended families.
