“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of […]

“We must let go of the life we have planned so as to accept the one waiting for us.” ~Joseph Campbell Plans: what funny things they are. As soon as you make them, they change. If you do happen to get perfect execution, you’re often left wondering “Is this really what I set out to […]

My cousin and aunt were unexpectedly in town on Friday. We’re not close to our extended family, so it’s normally a surprise when we see them. My cousin (who’s nearing 50 by my estimate), said something that really stuck with me. “When I was younger, I used to dream that one day I would unzip […]

If you’re like most,  you’ve heard the old adage “You get more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.” It’s something I strive to take to heart in my daily interactions: choosing the high road, asking nicely for what I want rather than demanding, and turning the other cheek.

Like most Americans, I’ve got more to do (including the things I want to do) than I have energy to get done. So, when I saw the article “23 Get-You-Through-the-Day Energy-Boosters” from Oprah, I knew it was just right for me. Here are some of my favorite tips. 1. Make a list of everything you […]

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been… curious. Not just run of the mill ‘why is the sky blue?’ type of curious, but “Why is the sky blue? Does everybody know that? Who figured that out? Can I get a piece of paper that says that I know that?” I want a lifetime […]

This morning, I found “78 Ways to Cut Fat Calories from Your Diet” from Women’s Health. In keeping with yesterday’s post about 50 things you must stop doing today, here are my favorites: Scramble together 4 egg whites instead of 2 whole eggs.

Like most web readers, I love lists. There’s a special soft spot in my heart for lists of things I should stop doing, instead of lists of things that I should start doing. That’s why I wanted to share the list “50 Things to You Need to Give Up Today” from Marc and Angel Hack […]

I can think of a dozen things that I’m terrified will happen to me. I’ll lose my job, my house, my loved ones. I’ll crash my car, i’ll get cancer. I’m lucky, because none of those things have happened to me (at least not yet). When faced with a decision, I’ve always wondered “What’s the […]

Ok, readers (or reader?)… I have a question for you. How did you decide what your calling or passion was? That thing that you eat, sleep, dream about? If you didn’t have to make a living, what would you do? (After you got tired of hanging out on the couch, watching TLC and vacationing around […]
