Isaac Newton said: “Truth is ever to be found in simplicity and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.”
In this blog article I share with you 3 steps you can take to simplify your life. This is particularly important if things have got on top of you, there is too much clutter, you feel drained and overwhelmed and your energy levels are not what they should be.
One of the reasons why you might resist change is because of fear of the unknown and uncertainty. However, the best way I have found to simplify your life is to let go of anything that is stopping you from having a sense of inner peace, joy and happiness.
You might feel like you are not succeeding if you have to let go of certain things, however this extra load might be the very thing that is causing you stress and anxiety.
In the New York Times Bestselling book "The One Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results" the author, Gary Keller, explains that you must find the One Thing...

I want to thank-you personally for celebrating with me the 50th episode of The Everyday Life Balance Show.
When I embarked on this journey to start a podcast back in June 2017, I knew it would be fun! I have enjoyed this journey very much and it continues...
Do you have a project you have not launched yet?
In this blog article I share with you 5 things I have learnt since launching The Everyday Life Balance Show on the 1st of June 2017:
1. Practice makes perfect: recording the episodes took a long time at first, however the more I did it the more confident I became. The most important thing is to start even if it means taking imperfect actions.

The truth about life is that you are forever running against the current when you either contemplate the past and the future or ignore the present moment.
However, the more you ignore the present moment the more you distance yourself from ‘being joy’. I would describe ‘being joy’ as the highest state of being that is true to you, that makes you simply happy, like a natural state of ecstasy.
There is no separation between ‘being joy’ and your personality traits. Therefore, 'being joy' means that you choose to deepen your relationship with yourself.
For this reason, living your life on purpose is essential for: “Where there is no purpose there is no joy.”
This is something I experienced in my mid 30’s when I questioned the meaning of my life. I felt lost, empty, unclear and disconnected from the world. I asked God: “Why am I here?” I did not feel complete, fulfilled, whole, happy and content despite the fact that I had...
There are certain laws which govern the universe you must be aware of in order to transform your life, to look forward to a better future and to get better results.
One of these laws is the Law of Cause & Effect, which dictates that:
1. You are at cause when you take full responsibility for whatever happens in your life.
2. You are at effect when you blame others.
When you look at your life, what law is it governed by most of the time?
Should you be at cause you are better equipped to respond to your life’s challenges by making wiser choices. Should you be at effect you are more likely to react to your life’s challenges and as a consequence limit your choices. Therefore, when you want to change your results, being at cause is more empowering than being at effect.
When you understand the Law Of Cause And Effect a number of principles come to mind for reflection and are worth considering to obtain better results:
I am doing something totally different this week. This blog article is more like a poem or a meditation for self-reflection.
The fundamental principle to live your life authentically is to TRUST. When you trust your heart is wide open and you surrender fully.
Here is the meditative process to live your life authentically:
Please sit comfortably in a quiet place and take a few deep breaths in through your nose and slowly out through your mouth or nose.
Become aware of your body and let go of any sensation that feels uncomfortable by saying, for example: “I let go of the sensation I feel in my arms and I smile…” Keep doing this until your body really feels lighter and you feel at ease.
Now begin the 3-step meditation for self-reflection keeping your eyes closed:
Step 1: “I trust myself” – meditate on the following:
“As I look at myself in the mirror, I love what I see and all that I am.
I trust my inner voice, my intuition and my gut feeling...
Many women are mothers, wives, sisters, daughters and professionals. Playing all of these different roles can be overwhelming at times and might mean that self-care gets neglected!
A mother of two children told me recently: “You know, Pascale, I feel so overwhelmed by my work load at home that I have reached the point where I wonder if I could cope any longer. I think I am close to reaching breaking point.” She knows deep inside that change is needed or she is heading towards burnout. She has been overstretching for too long, and this is causing her physical and emotional stress.
I wrote two articles on burnout you can access:
It is very important to recognize early if you tend to overstretch yourself and you are about to reach exhaustion point.
In order for women to feel empowered it is increasingly crucial that they find inner balance and harmony. To this end, if you feel...
In the “What is Success Series?” I shared with you:
In this blog article, part 3 of the “What is Success Series?”, I am going to share with you how you can enjoy the process as you move towards the accomplishment of your goals.
When you want to achieve success in your life it is easy to get carried away and to 'lose your soul' in the process on the one hand. On the other hand, when you enjoy the process you understand that you put a lot of energy into the accomplishment of your goal for the purpose of personal growth.
I chose Earl Nightingale’s definition of success: “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal” because it is the closest definition of success led by the heart as opposed to the head. Indeed, it the closest definition of success which defines success as...
In the first article in the series on What Is Success? I shared with you my preferred definition and I took you through a thinking process with regard to choosing your goal wisely.
In this article I am going to share with you what your worthy ideal ought to be for inner happiness, inner peace and inner joy.
Earl Nightingale said: “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal”
1. What is your worthy ideal?
In my opinion your worthy ideal is one, which will contribute to the success of your soul. The success of your soul is threefold and it consists of:
2. Healing your soul’s tendencies
When you choose to heal your soul’s tendencies you agree to become the best that you can be and authentic to your true self. Your true self is the higher part of you which is seeking expression as joy, love, peace, harmony and happiness. Your worthy ideal in this case is...
We all have different definitions of success, however in this blog article I want to share with you my preferred definition and why it matters. I take you through a thinking process, which will help you choose your goal wisely...
My preferred definition of success comes from Earl Nightingale, who said: “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.” In his definition of success Earl Nightingale teaches us that a worthy goal is necessary in order to achieve success, therefore it is important that you choose your goal wisely!
1. Why should your goal be worthy of you?
Your goal must be worthy of you because of the amount of time and energy you will put into its accomplishment. When you study people who have achieved great success, in terms of making a difference in the world, you will find that they did not achieve success in a straight line; indeed, they had to go through many roadblocks in order to reach the mountain top. Therefore, your goal must really be...
