She understood that the hardest times in life to go through were when you were transitioning from one version of yourself to another.

Tips for Surviving Tough Times

1. Remind yourself that you still have options (even if they aren’t all that appealing at the moment).

2. Focus on those few things that are going well (even if you have to scratch your head and really, really think!)

3. Decide what you can do … and then just take the next small step. And then, when you’ve done that, take another tiny step.

4. Admit how you are feelings; admit your greatest fears o fight, and persevere.

5. Let go of all the oughts, and the musts and the shoulds. Demands and expectations will only wear you down.

6. Ensure your life is balanced – and make sure you make the time to relax, have some fun, to chill out, and have a laugh.

When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.

We’re sad to announce that we’re closing 😞🐬

Costa Pura was started 3 years ago with the goal of creating a high quality product that we could sell to help raise money to save the ocean. The response has been incredible, but it’s time to say goodbye and close up shop.

We still have inventory in our warehouse that we need to get rid of, so we’re giving it all away for free. There’s no catch, you just pay for shipping. We love you guys, thanks for all the support over the years.

10 Psychological Tips That’ll Help You Get Your Life Together

  1. If you can figure out why your parents did this or that, you’ll be able to forgive them and take a huge step towards accepting yourself just as you are.
  2. When it comes to beating yourself up for past mistakes, don’t forget that you made that decision because you felt that it was right for you at that time in your life.
  3. If you’ve been hurt by someone, tell them how you feel, but choose your words wisely. Instead of saying, “You betrayed me!”, a much better way to open a dialogue is to say, “I feel betrayed.”
  4. Try to have desires and goals that are your own and not somebody else’s. When we try to live another person’s life, we destroy our own.
  5. You can change your life if you just step out of your comfort zone and start doing things you’d never imagine yourself doing.
  6. You don’t have to be nice and accommodating for everybody and give up your own desires and expectations. It’s perfectly okay to say “no”.
  7. Don’t wait for the right moment, take steps to make your life better every single day.
  8. Each stressful situation pulls you out of your comfort zone. And with it, you’ve gained new experience that will help you learn your lesson so that you never repeat the same mistakes again.
  9. Do everything that’s in your power, and then let the situation work itself out. It’s pointless to stress over something you can’t change and have no control over.
  10. Remember you’re the person you spend your whole life with. No matter how much everyone else praises you, if you don’t like yourself, you’ll still be miserable.
