Inspiration and information without personal application will never amount to transformation. – Lysa Terkeurst (Author of Uninvited).

How many of us can honestly say we are extremely content and fulfilled in every area of our lives right now?

Many of us aren’t. But we all wanted that when we were younger.

We wanted to be able to figure out our life’s purpose, be productive, manage our 24 hours well, be healthy, dress well, sleep and ace our careers.

And we wanted to have them all at the same time. We wanted a life that was amazing in every area.

I’m here to tell you that, yes, YOU can do it. YOU can have it all. YOU are the masters of your lives and your destinies. What you want, you CAN make it come true.

I started this blog to share the tools on how you can make those changes in your life, to see the positive growth you want. I’m not a huge fan of jargon, so in my posts I’ve condensed the material into accessible, bite-sized, fun (hopefully) and relevant pieces. Each one ends with an action list or takeaways that I hope you will introduce in your lives the minute you close the browser.

I want to show people how to get more out of their lives, by giving them practical takeaways in key areas, drawing on science, psychology, research, anecdotes and life examples which I hope are of help to you. Topics are split into 6 different categories of concern, with further sub-categories so you can focus on the areas you most like to address.

You can choose to design and build the your life that you want right now. You just need to take the first step.

Remember that education, information and inspiration without usage and application will never amount to any transformation.

About the Author

Abstracted Collective - Helping you Design the Balanced Life you Deserve.

Here’s a little secret: I love devouring information. I have a (really bad, I should say) habit of starting multiple books/magazines/articles simultaneously and never finishing them. Once I get my teeth into a topic, I get pretty obsessed and will trawl books and the internet to satisfy my curiosity.

I have tons of infor in my head all the time. To keep all of that content out of my mind and organised, I started a Tumblr blog a few years ago which acted as my own personalised Instapaper/Pocket/online library.

As I approached my mid-20s I found myself constantly thinking about my purpose in life. I bet every single one of us here has thought of this before. Life consisted of work, family and the random social event. I constantly felt this niggling sense of “there should be more to life than this”?!

I wanted to challenge myself to live life to the fullest and in a way which meant lots of positive change and growth. Most of all, I wanted to work towards discovering how to fulfill my dreams. What would that mean for me – chasing those dreams? How could I be more fulfilled in life?

I come across lots of stuff – some useful, some not and have applied quite a few tips to my life with great results.

And that was how this blog was born.

I am also a Psychology major and as a Researcher specialising in Organizational Behaviour in the day, I love devouring scientific articles, pop psychology and personal growth books. I like breaking down complex theories into digestible, actionable bits to apply in my own life. Lots of my articles are inspired by my readings and my personal experiments.

Besides writing here, I can usually be found daydreaming, people-watching and thinking of my next cup of tea. Yum. Yes I’m a dreamer, an idealist and abit of a quiet rebel 🙂 I love Victorian architecture, European cities, mountains, city views, window-seats, the smell of new books, cafes, unconventionality and listening to jazz music on a rainy day.

I love interacting with readers! Please get in touch with me here, on Pinterest, Instagram or Twitter.
